Default Re: Soldering Equipment

Define reliable.... It's cheap Chinese gear. It'll work, but it won't be amazing. On the other hand, spare parts might be cheap, too!

I'd personally go with the basic analogue versions. Less stuff to break so should be more reliable... A basic op-amp control circuit is easier to repair than something with an unknown micro-controller.
