Reliable digital technology by HAKKO – Introducing the HAKKO FX-888D Excellent thermal recovery Heater output has been increased by 30% compared to that of the conventional models HAKKO 936·937. Also FX-888D delivers excellent thermal recovery by using T18 series tips for their terrific heat conductivity. This allows soldering at a lower set temperature and reducing the thermal impact on components as well as tip oxidation that can shorten tip life. Thermal recovery graph Rise time to 350Degree C is 20 seconds faster and tip temperature drop is reduced during continuous work. HAKKO FX-888D performance comparison graph with conventional stations Able to shorten the time required for the same work and improve work efficiency significantly. Designed to be User-Friendly Small footprint Compact station body requires a space of only 100 (W) x 120 (D) mm. What’s more, points that come into contact with the floor are positioned as close to the outer edge of the body as possible to improve stability and make the station difficult to fall over. Simple and easy operation With only two operation buttons of UP and ENTER in the center, operation is simple and easy. Even if you’re not familiar with operation of machines, you can operate it without difficulty. Iron holder with full of functions An iron holder of the same color of a soldering station comes as a set. The highly functional iron holder not only improves ease of use, but also brings a sense of visual consistency to the work environment. Silver Soldering station Iron holder Blue & yellow Soldering station Iron holder Strict temperature management Digital display The FX-888D’s digital display makes it easy to check the set temperature at a glance.

Out of the box, the only difference you're likely to notice between the two is that one's digital and one isn't. The actual iron is the same, the weight is the same, the tip is the same, the base is the same... Side by side, it looks like some corners were cut in FX-888D packaging materials, and the DIN plug on the iron felt just the slightest bit cheaper on the 888D.
In terms of actual use, the FX-888D isn't really as intuitive as the analog. You'd think pushing "up" to get the temperature you want is logical, and the base pretends that it does something if you try. To get it to actually change though, you have to hold down "enter" for two seconds, and then choose your temperature. Not a big deal in the slightest, but just one of those "huh... I wouldn't have designed it that way". Presets are more involved, but not unreasonably so.
Moving the temperature up and down, the iron reacts quickly, just like the trusty FX-888. On the 888D, you can see the base counting up or down as appropriate, and wide (~200 degree) adjustments happen in about 20 seconds or so. One gripe here: the display shows you the setting, rather than the actual temperature -- which is to say: if you set it from 325 to 550, when it counts up to 550 it's ready. However, if you touch it to metal to start soldering, the display doesn't follow the temperature back down and up again. It just stays there at what it's set to, with a tiny LED dot that blinks to show it's heating. So, what's on your display isn't necessarily your actual temperature. Not that the analog ever showed you actual temperature, but I'd chalk it up as a "missing feature" if you're thinking of upgrading.
