    Pros:

    This solder unit does the job. It's cheap, light, heats up fast, has a sharp tip which makes it handy to solder small components. the power cord is long enough for my purposes.

    Cons:

    it seems all solder units come without a power on/off switch. I have no idea why this is, it would be so much handier.
    no real negatives thus.

    OtherThoughts:

    Upon first use smoke developed and it made me cough. Smells bad too, but you'll get over it soon.

    Bottomline:

    Do buy it if you want a reliable solder unit. Don't know how long it will last, but so far it didn't let me down.
