Lots of solder!
Too thick for my tastes
Highly active flux for the core, so don't breathe the fumes. The positive is that it really does work quite well. First few tries I got cold solder joints, but that's probably because I put wwaaayyy too much on or maybe there wasn't enough flux but I'm not sure as that was a one off. Consequent joints worked just fine. I also find it a little thick I'm used to the .5mm stuff but I couldn't find it here.
You can't beat the price anywhere for this amount of solder. It arrives just as the picture shows, no seal or bag.
I believe others have reported that the flux in it is insufficient, but I did not find that to be the case. The description does say that it's 2% flux, but the picture shows 1.5% on the label and I can confirm that mine says the same thing.
You'd be crazy to buy solder elsewhere if these dimensions meet your needs.
