      I have had this iron for about a year now. it heats up fast, but does not seem to be able to keep a high heat needed for quick soldering on boards. does not keep hot for soldering wire.

      Great step up from standard irons, but chunky power adapter makes it less portable

      This is a great soldering iron for someone that needs more performance than a standard plug-in iron, but isn’t ready to invest in (or doesn’t have space for) an actual soldering station. It heats up rapidly, doesn’t need a stand, the tips very easy to change. The iron does have a pretty huge power adapter though, which caught me off guard, and makes the iron less portable than you might think.

      Cool solding Iron

      This Iron heats up FAST. Make sure you buy a couple of Extra tips. Because if u use the Iron regularly, after awhile the bottom of the tip holder gets weak and will start breaking if you press down too hard on the board especially if your trying to desolder something. Otherwise it works darn good.

      Best bang for my buck

      Overall this product had been a life saver to me. Where all the radio shack and "cheap" soldering irons lacked this one stepped up. My use on these usually ate the tips on the first project. I have always like weller, and will continue to buy their products.
