-Works great for DIY reflow. -VERY cheap compared to buying it from a electronics supplier. -Plenty of it, it'll last you a long time.
-Kind of tough to apply
-The consistency of mine was fine, but the possibility of it drying out over time is possible.
Would be great if DX included a small syringe applicator with this, or at least made one available on their website.

Works for hand soldering, but I wouldn't recommend it, as it didn't work very well for me (tough to make sure you melted all of it, potential for shorts).
Great deal on some solder paste, will definitely buy again if I ever need to!
