If I could give it a zero, I would.
Amazon Customer
Every time it got hot enough to melt solder, it would cool seconds later and I would have to wait for the iron to heat up again.

It gets the job done for small projects and seems to work well for small time use.

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.

I got started in soldering using this to hook up my car sound system. It heats up quickly and soldered everything I needed. It comes with a tip and a folding stand so you don't have to hold the iron.

Heats up fast and gets way hot! Seems to have a pretty durable tip. Good for tiny applications. I changed changed about 50 LEDS on xbox 360 items and it worked great. These leds are tiny!!! I would recommend to anyone.

I got this today to do soldering work on my guitar. I have to say after the Wellers, Bernzomatics and offbrands, this one beats them all. This soldering Iron will be up to peak temperature within 5 minutes and works effortlessly at laying down joints. I'd buy 50 more if i needed that many.

The iron I received did not look like the one pictured, and had a plastic based stand instead of a steel one. Mine has a cheap black plastic handle that gets quite hot near the upper portion, so you can only hold the lower 2/3rds of the handle. The tip is came with was not very good either. Once I replaced the tip with a cheapo one from Radio Shack, it worked fine though. It also has a very short 3' cord. But on the plus side, the cord is soft and flexible so it doesn't pull the iron around if you nudge it.

It's cheap, it works.

I purchased this product for a casual hobby soldering and it just did the trick. Great value. The product includes a foldable metallic stand that comes in quite handy.

Pretty much the cheapest soldering iron I could find. Five stars because it does exactly what I expected it to and what it advertised it does; it gets hot within a reasonable timeframe, and the handle remained reasonably cool. Used it with rosin core lead-free solder to repair a usb plug which had been twisted off its circuit board.
Advice: Don't touch the metal. Not just the tip, anywhere on the shaft. Yes I know that's obvious, but I didn't think about it and burnt the side of my finger in a moment of gloveless haste. On that note, always wear gloves and proper eye protection. Unless you're feeling brave.
