Good tool – IC Chip Vacuum Sucker Pen Set for Electronics DIY (4-Piece Set) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Nice aluminum casing, good suction ability.
I lifted a 27c400 eprom with the middle sized head, just to see how strong it is. Though It was only for around 5 seconds, but that kind if IC doesn't need a vacuum pen.
3 different sizes of heads is quite nice.
Cons:
the rubber heads can be tricky to put on as the holes in them are very small. one can easily break the head if one is not too careful.
Other:
This is in overall a good tool when soldering SMD components.
Bottomline:
there's not much to tell other than it'll make your job easier if you have a steady hand.
