    Works like a charm, for the price

    Pros:
    The solder wick actually surprised me for its effectiveness. Solder adheres easilly even without using additional flux. It came neatly and cleanly packaged. Great value for price.
    Cons:
    Nothing worth notice. If I had to mention something negative, I'd say that the solder wick is slightly flimsy and may tend to d...

    Pros:
    Easy to use. Nice package, you can close it back when you finished work with it. Really cheap. You can remove solder from pcb, maybe you need some flux. Fast shipping, on stock! Very long lifetime if you use only for your hobby.
    Cons:
    Nothing special, works fine.

    Surprisingly effective

    posted by hahihula on 05/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I works great. I was really surprised how much solder it can consume and is really small and really cheap. For me it is best buy.
    Cons:
    It contains no flux and if you heat it for long time it sticks to the package and little bit stinks. ;-)

    Good price

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

    Pros:
    -It does the job. I could remove solder without any problems. -It's very cheap. A similar de-soldering wire in my country is much more costly. -1,5m lasts a long time for a hobby user like myself.
    Cons:
    The wire does feel a little stiff and it doesn't contain any flux. For this price it doesn't matter though.

    Does what it should

    posted by Event_Horizon on 06/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Does what is supposed to. It sucks up solder. - Very good price. The stuff I use at school is 20 times more expensive and only works marginally better.
    Cons:
    - Doesn't appear to contain any flux.
