My only two complaints are the soldering wand and the sponge. The soldering wand is nice and short making getting into tight spaces and maintaining control easy. However, the handle is hard plastic and lacks a soft rubber grip like you see on many higher end models. This isn't really a problem unless you are doing extensive work with the tool. The sponge that is included is very thin and flimsy. This can be easily replaced though. These are the two reasons I gave it a four instead of a five.
Like the title says though, you can't beat it for the price.
-Heats iron up in no time at all...I'm so used to walking away and doing something else but this thing is perfect.
-Looks profession and actually box is nice and heavy...feels solid
-Cheap as all heck
-Vacuum Really is nice...I don't have to hold my breath now ^^
-Holder actually isn't bad. The holder is metal, decent quality, and the solder comes out the bottom so it actually has a nice smooth soldering wire flow
-Soldering Iron feels cheap and the base can get a tad bit hot. If you don't want the vacuum that it isn't a bad idea to upgrade to a rubber soldering iron
-Only has one port so you will only be able to use one iron...no big deal but I know some people don't like that
EDIT: A friend gave me another email address to try for them, and they answered within 24 hours so I bumped it up a star for the fast response. I've submitted my information and will update this review when I hear back again.
Other than that, it's the best solder kit I've ever owned. The hot air blower is good for all kinds of tasks.

Works well for the smaller parts we use it for. I tried it on a bigger chip, sensor in a camera and found out I needed a square tip the size of the outline of the chip. Read morePublished on June 15, 2011 by JG
For SMD Rework its an amazing!
For soldering, its not. As far as I can see you can't replace the tip. Theres very little documentation on it. Read more
