  • As advertised: it gets hot and melts solder.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Very cheap (i checked at some local retail stores, and a comparable iron goes for about 3 times the price). Does what it's supposed to. Decent build quality.

    Cons:

    Cord is a bit on the short side (between 3 and 4 feet), although this isn't a huge problem for me. Also, it would be nice if it came with a little stand but for the price, I'm not complaining.

    OtherThoughts:

    I am not sure how it would hold up in a workplace setting, but for the odd solder job, it is probably ideal. If you've never soldered before, make sure you PRACTICE on some old circuit boards or something - you wouldn't want to go and wreck your good stuff.

    Bottomline:

    For the price, this soldering iron is a good buy.
