Title: Atten 858d+ vs YIHUA 858D
Post by: matth on December 07, 2015, 10:48:24 am

I was looking to get one of these rework stations but looking on Ebay the Atten 858d+ seems to be a lot more expensive than the Yihua (non "+" version).

I am interested to seek feedback as to what the differences are between the two and some feedback on what people think of the Yihua unit.

I have the Yihua 858D.  Cheap and cheerful at $50 USD delivered.  It works fairly well.  I am happy with the purchase.

Yep. They seem to work, just be aware that the internals are built down to a price.
