Very very unlikely to be a Cree LED at this price. Likely a Lattice Bright XL, which is a very very good knock-off of the XML appearance wise. Performance wise, it will be VERY cold and around 1/5 the output of a genuine XML. Most people don't realize how truly bright an XML is, so they think it is correct.

I've bought this same light under several different brandings (thanks to China's very umm copyright freedoms Wink ) and it's a good flashlight.
I don't know why people can't fathom how a LED Cree component can walk from the factory lines churning out the $50+ lights for the middle of the road Chinese flashlights like Nitecore to these lights made near by.
I'm not getting into a brand battle because bulb head fan boys are the worse. All I'm going to say is that the legally labeled "Made in the USA" premium torches only need to be assembled in the USA to carry the banner of a US based company.

It's a heavy light. It's not exactly well balanced or low profile.
The beam and focus isn't the best because the lenses and reflector aren't the best.

The tail cap is a bit fragile--IF you compare it to the waterproof monster top of the line aluminium Cree brethren. I've dropped all the ones that I've bought, numerous times and only one of the few, gets a little fidgety on the power if you jiggle it with the power on. Still very usable but the only real world issue I've had with them.

The tail button cycles very well through the power modes and clicks on and off easily but isn't going to get turned on accidentally.

I don't know about the actual lumens that this light puts out compared to similarly rated Surefire I have because the reflectors and lenses are very different so not a fair comparison.
However, for most people, this will be one of the brightest lights they have ever owned.

If your life depends on a light, then obviously not the light for EDC. This is the perfect light to keep for checking for bumps in the night or leaving in a tool box or glovebox.
It will work when you need it and be more lumens than anyone needs other than a tactical capacity (binding a man in daylight nonsense). The weight and size actually works for the light in this way because you're not going to lose it among you're other tools and if you drop it, you'll hear it.

Don't think about it; just do it.

I am not saying anything about Made in the USA lights. There are a variety of lights that are budget that contain real Cree emitters, just not THIS level of budget. The BOM costs of including a real Cree LED eat up too much of the BOM to make it possible to hit this price point. Also, Cree LEDs walking off the line is a complete myth. It quite simply DOESN'T happen. This myth got started when the LatticeBright clone's came out. They were so good in appearance that people assumed that they were just Cree rejects being rebadged. Cree has had phenomenal supply chain control for a long time, it is a matter of necessity and survival and they know it. This is why the fakes came out, because there is no gray market stuff around. As for the multiple names with one body, there is a body manufacturer that sells there stuff with whatever name you want on it if you are willing to buy 10K of them. So thats what these companies buy, buy the internals from other companies and just assemble themselves.

Cree versus LatticeBright [photobucket.com] Keep in mind that these things are CRAZY small, to the naked eye these pretty much look EXACTLY identical. LatticeBright even copied the exact same model names, until Cree sued them in China and won. So they changed the LatticeBright XML to XL, same thing for many other Cree models that LatticeBright copied. Notice one thing, how the LB has a pale yellow phosphor. This is because the phosphor is quite expensive and one of the easiest ways to save money is cut the amount of phosphor. This results in a bluer output, but they don't care. THis doesn't even begin to discuss the dramatically better performance of Cree's technology.
