Default Need to buy "Electric Vacuum Desoldering Gun"

Greetings all.

I have about 4, yes 4 free LG plasma TVs that are apparently suffering from the IPM chip failure. Since I got them free, I figured that replacing them and then selling the TVs would be worth while. Plus not to mention of all the repairs I do, it would be a handy thing to have.

Basically this is is what I'll be doing...

Any recommendations on what to buy? I was first looking into Kakko's desoldering guns, since I really liked the soldering gun I got, but I saw the price and felt like I was getting...

Then I saw this $10.00 one, but of course you get what you pay for....

Thanks in advance!

2 months ago I purchased Blackjack BK 4000 it is very good for the price $125.00
I repaired maybe 20 monitors with it. My second choice would be Hakko 808 tips could be better quality it had good reviews. Don't buy the 9.00 pump not good Radio shack
bulb pump is better for 12.00 but tips ware out fast.
