Works very well, heats up quickly.

There are two reasons I'm giving this 2 stars rather than just 1.

It did not get hot enough to melt the solder.

Great price for a 60W iron, cheapest I could find. Does its job well enough, even though it smokes a little sometimes from between the tip and barrel (it did this before I first used solder, so it's really the iron that is smoking, but it's really minimal).

If you need a cheap soldering iron for soldering large electronic connections, look no further. This thing gets as hot as I expected and works great on those large connections that a 35w iron can't handle. It comes with one fairly large tip, though anything requiring a smaller tip should likely be using a lower-power soldering iron. Best value on a 60w iron you can get!

Color Name: 30W Solder Iron Verified Purchase
It gets hot enough to melt solder, but that's about the only positive thing to say about these. They get WAY too hot when plugged in for a few minutes - so much so that they start to oxidize and discolor the tip and the rest of the metal after a little while. It also means that solder behaves poorly on them (won't stick to the tip well since it's oxidized), and it's really easy to do serious damage to the components you're soldering or even the pcb itself from the heat -- I'm fairly experienced at soldering but ended up accidentally burning through a chunk of solder mask and then lifting a pad because I didn't realize how ridiculously hot the tip was.

There are two reasons I'm giving this 2 stars rather than just 1. First, the included metal stand, while cheapy, was pretty useful. Second, they actually work fine if you can run them at about 50% power -- I taught a soldering seminar with 5 of these hooked to an electronically-controlled outlet switching on and off every 5 seconds (50% duty cycle) and they worked fine then, with no heat issues like before.

Overall, these get WAY too hot if you plan to just plug them straight into the wall, but might be worth purchasing only if you have some way to reduce the power to them.

This soldering iron does its job. Worked fine for me on lead-free .062 silver-bearing solder. I just use it to reconnect loose wires on household items and toys.

I'll still keep this iron. I suppose I could use it to assist in dual iron, 60/40-base desoldering of bad capacitors. It easily puts out heat for lead-containing solder.
It didn't put out enough heat to remove bad caps from a lead-free iMac G5 motherboard. I thought the 60 watts rating would do the job.
I'm a bit disappointed, but this iron was inexpensive/free ship/within a larger order. I'll check out on the web what others have used to get the job done.

Color Name: Red Solder Iron Verified Purchase
It heats up well, but also gets a bit too hot for the design. The handle gets hot enough to notice with your hands, although not dangerously so.

The biggest problem I had with this item is the tip. It is junk and started to disintegrate after about 30 mins of use. Once that happens, a 5 second soldering job becomes a 2 minute job--frustrating and not good for the blood pressure. I switched to a higher quality soldering item and it increased my efficiency by 3-5 fold. This might be okay for occassional one-time solder jobs, but if you need to do a lot of soldering, get a better model iron or you'll wish you had.

it works with me. I just used it for once to get my headphone fixed and it did the job well.

I bought this soldering iron because I make hairbows for my little girl and it does a wonderful job of cutting the ribbon while sealing the edge. It heats up really quickly and works great, plus it was very reasonably priced. I am very happy with it.
