Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Good soldering iron that gets the job done, price is pretty good (Don't forget the the price includes shipping),solid construction , 40W is enough for most light to medium-light jobs
Cons:
The soldering tip rusts (the tip is replaceable)
Other:
The tip provided isn't that good, rusts quickly and is too thin for some heavier jobs like 16AWG wire soldering, for those I recommend getting the "40W Lead-Free Soldering Iron Tips " (SKU 23446)
Bottomline:
Nice cheap soldering iron, the soldering iron seems to be holding up to fine after
