The 350C setting is perfect, I've fixed a few Xbox and ps3 at that temp
Gotta have this for work. Missed the £4.99 deal from Tesco which anyhow appeared to be a lower wattage gun than advertised.
Yep very good buy for fixing ps3s

I've used them for fixing ps3 and xbox 360 - but thinking about it wouldn't the oven work as well? I used the 'oven method' to fix and old graphics card (Nvidia 8800 if memory serves).
I re-flowed a PS3 successfully by baking the motherboard in the oven. Just covered the plastic parts with blu-tac (incredibly heat resistant and flexible). Heat gun is also very impressive at this price.
Has anyone any experience of this? I have purchased cheap ones before but they quickly die and dont last long or do a good job????
wow this is amazing !!!!!!!!!!111!!11!!!!!
Out of stock :-(
In my experience the oven method is not as reliable as using a heat gun. Using a heat gun, you are able to target the CPU and GPU and the area inbetween. Using the oven you will heating the entire motherboard and you will be more likely to break a connection somewhere as the motherboard may bend with heat if not secured properly when cooling. That's not say that the motherboard won't warp if using the heat gun method though.

In my opinion, use the heatgun, its a no brainer at this price.

The are a lot of these cheap airgun around, I thought I would treat myself to a higher watage one a few months ago. First got one from B&Q 2000w worked great for about an hour. Then took that back and got this one from Screwfix, it lasted about 4 hours giving decent heat then would lite a candle. SO in the end went back to my 1400w B&D I have had for 20 years :-)
I used to swear by B&D but I've had two drills and a grinder in the last twelve months replacing B&D kit I'd had for over ten years. Latest product range quality is so so bad, moved to Bosch, seem to be better build quality these days :-(
I shall just be using mine for medial heatshrink work and maybe the odd circuit board IF required, so I should hope mine will last. I wonder what ye do with yours "shopping" for them to last such a short time?
Cheers ordered one
Excellent ordered nice spot mate!!!!!
Great for de-icing the car with no effort
Just paid and reserved. Should do for my needs.
this is still this price, anyone know if it comes with nozzles for the end to direct the heat?
Word of warning folks, I bought this and it fell to bits before even using it!
...for PS3 reballing this is useless guys, waaaay too hot!

Long time ago I know but NO, the temperature is over 300c. For reflowing your talking 220c but heated beforehand around 110c to avoid warping.

This gun is garbage, I returned mine as it fell to bits.
