    I picked up a TerraLux TT-5 LED flashlight from Dvor and it arrived Friday.
    Disappointed that it was made in China even more disappointed while checking it out this weekend when it flashed brightly and stopped working, changed batteries of course with no luck.

    The light was OK but it made a clicking sound when you turned it on unlike the silent switches on other lights I have.
    The silent switch is really a requirement for me after having used them.

    I will not purchase another TerraLux light.

    Less than a week old I will see how well Dvor stands by their sales..

    I have one and it is one of the best flashlights I have ever owned. I don't know where it came from, it was a gift from a happy customer. It has a high and a low setting, and will run full out until the batteries fail. Mine is the TerraLux Lightstar 300, very solid and dependable, and i use it every day. it is quite bright, and I am using rechargeables, so it could be brighter with alkalines.

    Update. Dvor won't exchange or refund on any sales they will credit. I emailed TerraLux direct and they will either repair or replace.
    The light was OK and TerraLux stood by their product hopefully it will last longer than a few days but be warned on Dvor as far as refunds or exchanges...
