I bought this flashlight to replace my previous Smith & Wesson Galaxy 6 LED flashlight that I gave to very good friend who needed a reliable flashlight. Since the Galaxy 6 model (with both white and/or red lights) was no longer available, I purchased this model as a replacement. It is nearly as good as the Galaxy 6 except that it only has just the white light, and the push button requires firm finger pressure to turn it on and off. The light beam is just about right (i.e., bright, but not blinding), but I do miss the optional red light feature. I consider the weight of the flashlight to be just about right. It is designed so that it doesn't roll around when you put it down. Altogether, I consider it to be a very good, reliable flashlight.
