Useful but expensive – Soldering Workstation with 5X Magnifier for Electronic DIY Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Great workstation for soldering. The base is nice and heavy, and feels like it won't move unless you want it to.
Cons:
Could be cheaper, soldering iron holder does not fit my soldering iron well. It's pretty expensive relative to what you can simply pick up at an electronics store in your home town. I found a similar model cheaper here.
Other:
It can hold the cables nicely. It's pretty expensive relative to what you can simply pick up at an electronics store in your home town. I found a similar model cheaper here. The convenience of being able to simply hit order and have the thing delivered is pretty nice, though.
Bottomline:
It's very useful. If the price dropped down a little i'd buy again for sure. This is a good way to save a trip to the store.
