Rated 5 out of 5Â by wiretech Best one I have tried so far.
I have only used it a few times for a total of about an hour so I cannot attest to battery longevity yet, but this thing is bright, even on the Low setting. The headstrap works well and you can adjust the beam down where it is useful through bifocals. The light is a good quality white making it easy to sort wire bundles that have similar colors. The on/off mode select button is flush so it doesn't suffer from accidental activation in the toolbag so odds are good it will be available when you need it. I work in the back of a lot of dark cabinets and have tried several different lights, but this was the best (and least expensive) so far.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Parker Very bright & has many uses
I wish I'd thought of these before I tried changing a lightbulb in a dark stairwell while at the same time holding a flashlight.This cool product frees up a hand and also keeps the light steady and focused on where you need it to be. The headlamp strap is adjustable for any sized head and stays in place well. The lamp itself is adjustable up and down, but not right to left. The lamp has an easy to press on/off button. If you keep clicking the button you can have tiny red lights on the side of the big bright center white light. I have used this product for small jobs around the house, my teenage son has used it to wear while snow skiiing, and I've even put it on our dog at night so I can easily see where he is outside. I plan on getting more for fun and functional gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DenCon509 Surprise Performance
In winter, I have to do farm chores in the dark - morning and night; it gets totally dark (wonderful dark night sky). My good old Black Diamond 4-LED (flood) headlight was dying of old age after 15 years of good service.
I learned of this headlight on Dealnews.com and figured on taking a chance; for a buck and a half apiece - it's hard to lose.
Very bright, long-reaching (100+ meters) central round spot, not too tight; might be too bright for up-close work (dim setting only slightly dimmer)
Decent round flood, but not very bright
No spill to speak of - pretty precise cutoff
Red (third) light option is worthless - it just illuminates the red housing :-/
Because the batteries and headlight are together, it feels heavy (wimpy headband doesn't help)
The flimsy single elastic headband isn't enough to keep the headlight stable when moving; even walking causes it to bobble. (hence the 4 stars/4 bar quality rating)
Too soon to tell how long the 3 AAA batteries (included!) will last at this time.
Next time I'm at Home Depot, I'll get more!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SteveVA Great "hand-saver"
These two headlamps are great for providing light without using a flashlight. I like to use a headlamp for night-time fishing. The headlamp stays firm on my head and is very comfortable. The light is a bit heavy and I would probably not run with it. It would work for biking if you strap it onto a helmet, I imagine. Uses are endless though; auto repair, home repair, camping, etc. These headlamps are built well and come with a strong and durable strap. The light has three settings; bright, dim and dim w/ red lights. Brightness is good. I do wish they had a sole red-lamp setting so you don't ruin your night-vision at night. The light takes three AAA batteries, which come in the package. The lamp is also adjustable so you can move the light up and down, which is convenient.
