Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This soldering iront is cheap and yet its quality is good enough. It is light and quite easy to handle and the cord length is OK. Heats up quickly.
Cons:
I would not keep it switched ON for too long. The first time I used it the smoke was so smelly that I had to open the window to air the room (fortunately it did not last long). The handle tends to get a bit too warm after a while. Also the tip does not seem durable...
Other:
It would be a good idea to sell it with a second flat tip.
Bottomline:
40 W is just fine and the thing does its job nicely.
