The only real downside is the price for the amount of solder you receive. You can find cheaper solder with a lot length for less if the lead isn't a concern for you. But for me personally I prefer my metal fumes to be lead free when I'm inhaling them, so I am happy to pay a premium.
I think I saw this stuff at a local Ace Hardware, so it is probably a solid product.
UPDATE!!! A comment to my review by "inkyvoyd" informs me that lead-free solder is more toxic to breathe than leaded solder. I looked it up, it's true! It's better on the environment, but worse on the environmentalist. In an industrial environment, additional protective measures should exist. But for an occasional user, it might be wise to just use the old stuff. Thanks, inkyvoyd.
I was using the solder with a new Weller soldering station (WES51). It's possible I had the temperature set too high or too low. I will update my review if I find a temperature that reliably reduces the resin spitting.

I use so very little. I'm pretty sure I'm not what the EPA is trying to stop. I won't suck my fingers :)
