    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Good quality and all round soldering iron. Userfull for a variety of metals,suits perfectly small board work (thanks to its thin tip).
    After a three month use there's no sign of malfunction. Better than more expensive one i have bought at my local store.

    Cons:

    Fixed temperature.
    It became hot really quick, so use it in safe condition and on an appropriate holder.
    The handle can get quite warm after a long use (but it's not melting).

    OtherThoughts:

    At the beginning you could have a small grey smoke produced during the heating and a strong hodour. I suggest to use it outside the first couple of time.

    Bottomline:

    Really worth the price. I'm really satisfied and the tip si lasting long than expected.
    Another Deal Extreme!
