Got a Streamlight TLR-2 and it's great!
I already had a Surefire X200A so I had a good light to compare the TLR-2 to. But first, the TLR-2 is a WML with a very white, uniform, well focused beam. The TLR-2 also has a laser sight under the white light. All for $233; the TLR-1 (no laser) for $109.
It's whiter and brighter than the X200. It has, I think, a better mounting system as well and it's very close to the same size as the X200.
If this thing had intensity control, it'd be my everything light, WML, handheld, walking in the dark, dodging dog poop in the yard at night, etc. but it's a little too bright for general use.

Heard plenty of good things on TLR - but for me more than I need.
How useful is the laser?

A little whiter and a little brighter.

Some Meaning that to be useful, it has to be on the gun and of course, except around the house over night, it likely isn't going to be on the gun.

Not as convinient as a "squeeze grip" switch, but I found the CT switches didn't work that well for me and have already removed them from my Sig 226. I guess nothing truely fits everyone.
