Pros:
Very good price, this is a thin solder wire great for through hole or SMD boards with medium-pitched components.
Cons:
Not enough flux in it, you should add some of your own, especially when soldering SMD components.
Other:
I still don't know if it is a lead-free or a leaded solder; considering the melting temperature (temperature controlled iron @350°C), it seems to be a lead-free one.
Bottomline:
Good one, but not the best out there; still, a great compromise, especially for such a low price. Consider you may want to add some flux if you need good precision.
