Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andy Switch is poor design or poor quality
On - off switch has been intermittent since day one. You need to tap on a hard surface to turn on or keep on after rotating the head. I have changed batteries and cleaned contacts with no improvement. Way to expensive for this problem. Others have had the same problem, buyer beware!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JINXTHECOACH BRIGHT, BUT I HAD A PROBLEM RIGHT AWAY
THIS IS A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT. I WAS SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTED HOWEVER! AFTER A WEEK OF USE, THE LIGHT WOULD NOT STAY ON. YOU COULD JIGGLE IT AND IT WOULD COME ON AGAIN, BUT THEN IT WOULD GO OFF. I CONTACTED CUSTOMER SERVICE AT MAGLITE, GOT AN INITIAL RESPONSE, BUT AM STILL WAITING FOR A SOLUTION. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT LIGHT IF IT WOULD STAY ON!

Look, I'm not one of those anti-maglite homers. I think at their price point, you get a heck of a flashlight for the price. However, I've been noticing a slight decline in quality control from Maglite in the last couple years, and this guy might be the straw that broke the camels back! Can't believe the quality control department didn't see this defect either, it's blatantly apparent when actuating the switch while turning the head. Any type of bump (including falling off a 3" curb) will knock the bulb insulator off alignment, and thus making it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to turn the flashlight on or off properly. You end up having to taking the head off and turn the bulb fixture manually with a needle-nose pliers to turn it on again. It's absolutely ridiculous that 1. the engineers thought this to be the successor to the tried & true button switch. And 2. Nobody in Quality Control found this defective before OKing it for production. Now I know what you're, "it was probably a single defective unit this guy is blabbering about..." But actually my wife (she got one too) and I have taken back and exchanged 6 of these between the two of us. And everyone has the exact same problem. I also noticed that Home Depot is RTAing these units back to the manufacture when we return them. Making me believe that Maglite knows the issue and has alerted Home Depot they will buy back these paper weights once a customer returns it. I wish they'd come clean and pull them from the shelves, but hey, I can't complain with Home Depot's awesome customer service. But please maglite listen to me.... You're losing grip on the most important core competency of your business model. And that's high quality flashlights at a reasonable price. Get it together....

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by johndoe not great
These flashlights are okay for small stuff around the house. They do have a decent beam, but if used fairly hard at work they are worthless. Getting them slightly wet or dropping them from a few feet will ruin them. I've been through 4 in the last 2 years. I finally got sick of them and got a high quality flashlight from a different manufacturer.

Amazing light for the price. I would have paid double for this light.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PJS1 It Turns Off on It's Own
A friend and I each bought this light last winter. At first it worked wonderful, although a push button on/off switch would be preferred to the twist on/off functionality. The beam was VERY bright and long, which was great for our use. However, after about a month the flashlight started turning off on it's own. I would turn it on (twist on), set the beam, then it would flicker off. I would have to repeat the on/off procedure to get the light to work & sometimes it would, sometimes it wouldn't. I confirmed that my friend's flashlight did the same exact thing. I've had other Maglite products in the past and have been pleased with their quality, but this one is very disappointing. I have come to expect more out of Maglite products, and this one falls far short. I cannot recommend this light.
