Appears to run around $43 on Amazon regularly, and has been as low as $39. So overall a decent discount, but not huge savings if you're not in the market right now. I'd probably buy it if I hadn't already spent too much on new tools lately

For what it's worth, it gets 4+ stars on Amazon, with an A-grade rating from Fakespot for having mostly high-quality reviews:

If you're going to use it pretty often, it is.

If you're not spending Weller or Hakko money, then you may as well get whole rework station for $43.47 [ebay.com] or stand alone soldering iron for 9.79 [ebay.com] with comparable specs. I solder *A LOT* I own both irons; both are surprisingly capable with inexpensive spare tips available everywhere.

If you're going to use it on a regular basis, yes. Also, be very careful where, and from whom you purchase your Hakko products, as there are a lot of counterfeits on the market, especially on sites like eBay. It's best to purchase from reputable merchants, and those that are authorized Hakko USA dealers.

I have one. It's a lot better than you would think for the price and it came with an extra heating element.. It only came with 1 tip and it was a bit large. Replacement tips run $10 a piece. If you know of a compatible tip for less, please let me know.

Other than the tips, I would recommend it. However, there are better options.

Definitely. So is Amazon, as long as it's not a third-party seller that's not an authorized dealer.

None of them includes the "helping hands". When did that change? Last time I purchased one (and that will tell you how long it's been) everyone and their brother was throwing in a "helping hands" for soldering.
