Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nicki2343 super cool flashlight
The magnets are very strong which is good. The bendy legs are sturdy and keep the shape you put them in. The flashlight has different brightnesses. However, I have found myself accidentally opening the battery compartment just about every time I try to turn the flashlight on. The power/brightness dial is the same size/shape as the battery compartment dial, just on opposite sides of the flashlight. I gave it 4 stars because I believe full price is a bit much for this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by iBernard Buyer Beware ALL MAGNETIC!!!
While this seems like a really great piece to throw in anyone's toolbox or camera bag, beware: it's ALL magnetic. Not just the bottom of the legs, but the entire legs themselves are magnetic. I'm sure for some professionals (plumbers, electricians, carpenters) it's great, but for a digital professional this TORCH can destroy digital data quicker than you can imagine.
Rethink this purchase! And the beam isn't all that great either.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by personnetypique what one does not realize surprises one
If you are a typical homeowner who does a few repairs on one's own, there are occasional times when one needs to angle and shine a bright light into some dark space, preferably without having to plug into a 120 volt socket. It may have been mentioned in some obscure place in the ad, but the height of this fairly expensive battery-powered led light is only 7 1/2 inches-- I was expecting something more on the order of a 12 to 18 inches, so that if I put in on a basement or garage floor, the light could shine anywhere. Admittedly, the three legs do bend in almost any direction one might want, and one can tilt the light. Also, the intensity is adjustable from really bright to dim. The magnets in the legs are marginally useful; how many times does one need to fasten this light onto a magnetic surface in order to work? On balance I will make do with this, but I am not thrilled.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by iBernard Magnetism can KILL your DIGITAL DATA!
Previously reviewed, all I'll say is that throwing this desirable tripod, heavily magnetic, can kill your digital data on flash drives, a computer, or external hard drive, should they be in the same bag.
I'd give this a 5-star rating for what it does, but zero stars for the extent of the magnets throughout the three legs and the tips of the tripod.
Buyer beware of magnetism!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Memin Highly impressed!
Highly impressed with the Gorilla light. Does everything stated in the description and video. If you have to ever do repair on refrigerators, washer, dryers, or any appliance, this really comes in handy as you can place it where needed, and gives you the perfect amount of light. Going to buy one for each family member's household, it's that good!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SailorJerry Durable and Functionable
GorillaTorch flashlight is a multi-functionable, durable, and extremely portable that each household would greatly benefit having available for any occassion. Works well in all environments and provides concise lighting for the duration of the battery life (will vary by battery quality). Highly recommended for everyone's home work bench.

Thought this flashlight would be slightly bigger. Kind of small, but it helps when I'm trying to find something that fell or I dropped with the leg stands staying in place, instead of holding a flashlight with one hand and using the other to locate the fallen item.

This is a very good light. It is very bright and stable. Smaller than I thought, but will do the job that I purchased it for. You do have to tighten the battery compartment lid firmly or it will not hold.
