I bought one a year ago and liked it so well that I bought another two this year. They're cheap enough I don't worry about moving them from bike to bike. I just buy another light.
Night blindness runs in my family and it's hit me pretty hard. The MS provides me with adequate lighting on my commutes. It's probably overkill for pleasure rides in the country, but here in the city, it's just about right.
It it a perfect light? No. I'd prefer an asymmetric beam pattern--flat on top, less spill out the sides. But I understand they also sell to MTBers, and symmetric, besides being cheaper to produce, is better for them.
I can also recommend their taillight. It is every bit as powerful as the legendary DiNotte 140R (which I also own), but it runs from the MS battery.
