Pros:
All sizes are very useful, this wider variety is good for audio cables with double insulation. It's so cheap and compact and will come in handy, works perfectly even with a simple cigarette lighter, and it's simply impossible to compare how professional your soldering looks and works when protected with heat-shrink versus any kind of adhesive tape..
Cons:
It comes wrapped in cellotape which is really useless and annoying.
Other:
Make sure you cut a generous piece and put in on before soldering! I was dumb enough to forget at first, because i was used to tape. Also make sure you put it far away from the solder point because the heat might shrink it and you're in trouble!
Bottomline:
If you ever solder anything at all, buy these, and buy a few.
