Nice Station  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought one of these to use assembling my Elecraft K2. Worked great with no complaints. As stated it heats up with no waiting. The unit has a small water dish with a mesh insert supporting a sponge. The sponge on mine is still in good shape after the finishing the K2.

Very good unit for the money.

Great soldering station at reasonable price!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I replaced my 20 year old Weller with this new Edsyn and I love it. It has a lot more power with a 95 watt heater rating. This comes in handy with working with boards that have a complete ground plane on one side and you have to solder on that ground plane. It also heats up very quickly. About 5 to 10 seconds in my experience. I don't have to remember to turn the iron on in advance, I just flip the switch when I'm ready.

If your at Dayton, there's a great vendor in the flea market that sells these. You can also get them directly from Edsyn. The extra tips are only a couple of bucks so I picked up a few different profiles to keep on hand.

Anyone looking to upgrade to a temperature controlled solder station should consider this model.
