are they reliable?
If you're looking for something cheaper like the Weller's, that's fine, but trust me in the long run you'll save more $$ with a good solid iron like a Hakko. Before I bought my Hakko I was buying the cheaper ones more often
Besides, the Hakko's are rebuildable if the heating element should ever blow
