I was nicely surprised by the value and quality of these pliers. The lights work well, though don't expect the same brightness as a 9-LED light, but the LED is really helpful when dealing with dark wiring situations. The craftsmanship is decent to good, especially for the price, although not quite as good as the USA made versions.
Would purchase again.

I bought these cutters with excitement for the cool LED light. The diagonal cutter LED had to be re-adjusted for center with an allen wrench when I got home. One of the pliers lights kept turning off every time I closed them. I then found a on back of packaging, you have to hold the LED button down for 8 seconds to switch from DEMO mode to OPERATIONAL mode. They work great now, but this was an easy oversight and that's why many people reviewed them poorly. If I didn't have to tinker with them brand new for the misalignment I would have gave them a 4 stars.
I bought these because they looked heavy duty, and the light was something I could have used quite often. I wasted my money. The pliers are of poor quality and too awkward to use. The light in the pliers turns every time I open and close them. The light in the sidecutters works great, but the cutters won't cut many of the sizes of wire that I work with daily. They sit in my tool box while I use tools from a competitive brand.

Well built, easy to grip. This is a great idea, I have often needed some type of light to see into a small opening when using long nose pliers and these are the perfect answer.
I purchased this set as additional tools for my already overstocked tool box simply due to the light, handy in many situations. The tools are sturdy and I have no doubt will last a lifetime but don't expect to cut anything, not even a small zip tie! They were returned the next day from purchase. If you don't need the cutter go for it.
As others have stated, they are a little large. Nonetheless they are great for working in poorly lit areas when you don't have free hands to hold a light. To save yourself an extra trip, just check the light switch before you leave the store, the first set I purchased had been poorly assembled and the switch did not work.

What happened to Quality Craftsman? I had to buy Two sets and take one from each to get a working set. Then take the others back for a refund. The Long nose switch only worked when it felt like it, and the Diagonal cutters LED was misaligned and did not illuminate anything. Even the good set takes two hands to open the jaws, a one hand operation, and that's after oiling! CRAFTSMAN, I give you TWO thumbs down on this one!
