In short, I'd love to own one of these to use with my own home projects, but I wouldn't call it a professional unit.
One nice thing about it that I haven't seen in any other units is that the soldering iron has an air pump attachment on it to capture the smoke created from boiling flux.
I really bought it for the de-soldering gun. I have seen it work perfectly on some boards and poorly on others (seemed to need more suction). I wish it worked better in general use, but it's still better than a manual pump.
Used HotAirGun to reflow some large SMD chips (with hidden-under pads) instead of "Oven Trick" ... it actually worked fine.
I usually keep the HotAir and DeSoldering gun hooked up. I use the separate included iron/sponge holder for my Weller pencil.
Excellent heat up, decent length hoses, good vacuum, quiet, seems to be dead on temperature adjust.
Had to sand down one edge of desolder head tip to get good contact, and wish i could have the solder tip going at same time to heat up the pool better, but that it what we still have our old el-cheapo's for.
hot air is just so-so, hasn't been that useful, but i don't have a pre-heater oven either. wish it was strong enough to do battery tabs (was what i was hoping for), but guess ill just have to get into HV !
The real beauty of this baby is heat control, and the ability to use some of the hako tips, and the availability of a smd tweezer tip. as an amatuer,it has made life MUCH simpler.
recommend ordering the x-small chisel tip, and the biggest de-solder tip(so you can file down one side flat/45deg),and of course the tweezers. also find some .3 solder-works magically well on cap replacement and smd diodes.
Did buy this from SRA when they had just picked up the line. Still think it was a great buy.
Got rid of a ton of frustration in learning and getting into close sections of boards, and still has enough oomph to do large connections too.
oh yeah, don't turn on the air pump when desolder tool is hooked up, it looses almost all suction boost on the gun trigger if you do...
edit-- looks like the 701a+ does both solder and desolder at the same time, just no digital controls..
Although the soldering iron heated up quickly it does not have nearly the power of my used Metcal and the handle gets much hotter after prolonged use. You are much better off buying a quality iron used of ebay.
If you are willing to spend $250 on a soldering iron you are much better off going on ebay and buying a used Metcal to do your soldering and spending $50 on a butane torch (which is much more reliable than the Aoyue and works almost as well).

I don't have this exact model but The desolder unit on my Aoyue is quite useless.....constantlyu clogs and has no suction....
reverted back to my old reliable Hakko 808....
Avoid this product at all costs.
De-solder Gun does not get hot enough, very poor design. Getting proper temp readout is not possible. Read more
It was the best bang for the buck. I mostly used the desolderer, and it does clog up from time to time if not used properly. Read morePublished on November 24, 2010 by Anonymous
