I only have a webcam to work with so pics are pretty much out. The difference between the CW and NW TN4A to my eyes is pretty striking. Color rendition with the NW is far better and the hotspot seems to be a bit tighter as opposed to kind of diffuse with the CW. Both lights are stonkingly bright and both have over 30000 candela. The beam out of both is HUGE Im talking Maglite radius here. I also have most of the rest of the 4xAA "stubbie" class of lights and the TN4A smokes them all at half the price of the rest. Sure I still love my D40A,GX25A3,EA41 and SRA40 but the TN4A is built just as well as any of the rest and has more real OTF lumens than the rest of the class. The TN4A does NOT have a timed step down which is fantastic it has a temperature gauge step down. The light has to hit a certain temp to step down. So far I cannot get either of my TN4A's to step down off turbo it all ends up coming down to how much battery power Ive got its amazing! The TN4A is one of the best flashlight purchases I have ever made. For the price of say the Eagletac GX25A3 I got 2 Thrunite TN4A's lol...still rotate the rest in my EDC so they get used but TN4A is the king of the class in either NW or CW

Ill have a new NW TN12 2014 in the mail tomorrow and cannot wait. If the difference between my CW TN12 and the incoming NW TN12 is as striking as it is between my 2 TN4A's I will be ecstatic. Best NW in my collection until now has been my NW ZL SC600 L2 and NW ET TX25C2. My new NW TN4A seems to fit perfectly between those two lights color wise I freaking love having tint this good that is also this powerful, wide and far throwing!
Will be waiting for your review on the NW TN12 2014. If it is positive feedback, I will get one as well. I have the NW ZL SC600 L2 as well and the NW TN4A, but looking for more NW lights and if all is good, will be keen to get one for myself too.
I had to post in here too because I am quite impressed with Thrunite. The TN12 2014 NW is brilliant, I honestly could not think of one thing to change on it...
Actually I could, but its something not available on any light - perhaps 5 tiny red leds, that indicate which power level you are on, if 1 is lit up, then your in Firefly, 2 = low, 3 = med 4 = high and 5 = Turbo...... But this would probably add considerably to the cost...! So I would choose the TN12 the way it is.
Thanks for your feedback prnguin. Am very keen on the light and will probably buy it regardless of the review from CC74, but will be good to see what CC74 says about it before jumping the gun
