I use a WES51 (a $100 Weller iron) at school and I have to say I like this one better. While it's not temperature controlled and doesn't have any special features, its simplicity, reliability, and power make it remarkable. I've been soldering for dozens to hundreds of hours on it, and not once have I encountered a single problem. I'm still even using the same tip. The 60W heater gets it up to temperature in a matter of seconds, as opposed to minutes as cheaper Weller irons and most cheap irons in general would take. The widespread availability of extra parts and tips is a huge plus.
Unless you want to try your luck with knockoff Chinese digital stations, I don't imagine there is a better station in the same price range.
-The pen is nice and lightweight--so much easier to use than the cheap all-in-one irons.
-The station itself is very nice, and the sponge tray is actually made of metal. The solder-holder is surprisingly useful as well
-Lots of power. I occasionally work on PCB mounted components, but spend most of my time wiring guitars and other audio equipment with this. It's got plenty of power to solder relatively this ground wire onto the back of guitar pots, but also turns down nicely so as not to lift pads on PCBs.
-The included tip is a very nice all-around size. I would like to get a couple more tips in the future, but for now, this one works well on a variety of projects.
-Would be nice if they included one or two more tips, but as mentioned, the included one is a great all-rounder
-There is a small LED that flashes when the unit is on, but it would be good to have something a little brighter to make it easier to see.
