I got this heat gun to replace a still functional 30 year old Sears heat gun that the cord was too short on plus the cord was getting really stiff so I got this slick heat gun.
I am really impressed with the digital display and the ease that setting and seeing the temperature. It has two speeds and heat setting could not be easier an up and a down button just below the LCD display that you set to the desired temp and then it shows the actual temp so you can wait until you are up to the desired temperature, no guess work. With the gun set at 150F and on low speed you can get something just toasty warm, not flaming it like a blowtorch, really a nice tool.
There is a fold out stand on the handle that allows you to set the gun down like a steam iron while still running to free your hands for a moment and still have the gun up to heat and ready to go.
Bottom line: I am totally satisfied with this heat gun, how I worked with that old all on all the time old gun is beyond me. Hard to justify the expanse of replacing a tool that still works but this time I only can kick myself for not getting this sooner. There is a cheaper model without the digital display feature, just pay the man, and get the good one with the LCD you will not be sorry.
