    I actually miss the old design. I was so used to it. Oh well, at least this one is better organized.

    It could be worse, it could be like this website.

    Pretty shiny design they've got there. I was certainly used to the old design, but this one's well laid out, and should be a breeze to adapt to.

    One thing I don't much care for, though - the sound in Flash feature on the main page is much too loud. Actually, I don't care for involuntary sound on a web page at all. And since the sound in that feature doesn't serve much of a purpose (beyond cheesy, annoying dramatic effect, ŕ la "swoosh" animations and sounds in PowerPoint), I think they should ditch it. At the very least, they should give it a mute button and volume control.

    Otherwise, though, the site looks pretty great. I hope they take full advantage of this new design for new product features/announcements.

    Ah, simple and easy to navigate.
    I hate sites that have a tonne of features but laid out badly. Now, which light?...

    I don't mind the new layout. I do wish they would fix the flashlight comparison chart to adjust its width for the size of your browser.

    Could be wrong, and I hope it's an error, but the old A2 Aviator is listed at $199? I thought it was $149 on the old site. Guess I better jump on some of the NIB A2s in the MP going for under $100!

    Here is an interesting tidbit.

    SureFire recommends the use of only SureFire-brand 123A lithium batteries or those manufactured by Panasonic®, Energizer®, and Duracell®. However, do not use any batteries marked "Photo" or "Camera" in SureFire illumination tools.



    Wonder if I should stop using my Rayovac Photo lithium batteries????

    It's funny how in the flash on the main page for the Aviator that the sounds are the same from close encounters.

    That's been there since summer of '08 at least. When I first started looking for lights I read that I do believe. I can say for sure it's been there since earlier this year.

    It's funny though. I've never seen an Energizer or Duracell 123 battery that didn't say Photo.

    I've used quite a few Titanium Photo batteries from BatteryJunction with no bad results. I think it's more of who you buy from than what it says.

    I like the new design.

    I hope that Combat Tactics will be a full PDF download in the future, as the magazine is hard to get outside the USA.

    I'm not convinced that was SureFire's website. It feels more likely Laser Products purchased SureFire.com when it's flashlight line started to overtake it's Lasers as the dominant brand recognition

    Just noticed something cool. Surefire re-did all the product photos in PNG format and now they are background-less (transparent). Download the image and set it as your wallpaper and voila, it takes on the background colour of your desktop. Works fine on my Mac at least.
