    Excellent solder paste

    posted by tomse on 06/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is what it is, solder paste. Good stuff too, works best with solder iron compared to hot air gun. Not very much is needed when soldering.
    Cons:
    you'll need to find a tool to apply the paste with. The bottle/glass seems big, but only half-full, I didn't weigh it but I g...

    Good tool

    posted by tomse on 06/10/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Nice aluminum casing, good suction ability. I lifted a 27c400 eprom with the middle sized head, just to see how strong it is. Though It was only for around 5 seconds, but that kind if IC doesn't need a vacuum pen. 3 different sizes of heads is quite nice.
    Cons:
    the rubber heads can be tricky to put on as the holes in them are very small. one can easily break the head if one is not too c...

    Good pump

    posted by tomse on 06/10/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    it works as advertised. It has rubber feet to prevent excessive vibration noise. there's a switch high/low (unmarked which is which) it's 220/240v with european power connector (2 round ones) it's made of hard solid plastic with a nice transparent blue top.
    Cons:
    though it has rubber feet, it's noisy, you can hear the hum of the pump. has been tested in suspension too.

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, good for development. plug'n'play. Smooth metal bottom so cards won't wear down the reader or the other way around. visual indicator for powered on (red diode always on), getting ready/installing(green diode blinking) and swipe/read state (green di...
    Cons:
    It's light in weight. Rubber feet are not preventing movement on table/surface. Swipe-speed should be fast. a gentle swipe won...
