5.0 out of 5 stars not as in the picture, but it works the way I was hoping for, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Solder Paste 30g Tin (Electronics)
I was afraid that it wouldn't work, accordingly to the negative reviews. But it does. Here are some details:

- it's not as in the picture: it's a lot darker, a little transparent, it looks like a very thick and dark acacia honey or barley malt syrup (B006664EWM), except it's not liquid at all (it won't flow if you put it upside down). Be reassured, it's not hard either, so it's very easy to dip the tip of a wire in it (there's less resistance than room temperature butter).

- it works: when I don't use it, I have a hard time making the tin go where I want it to go (it will often not stick on the first attempts). When I do use it, it's so much easier, the tin will go right where it's supposed to go!

- surprisingly, it doesn't stink too much when it's heated by the melted tin (I was prepared for the worst).

- applying it to something you can't dip it in requires that you use a tool (for example, a pencil shaped thingy that will let you put some paste on the thing that's supposed to be tined).

- don't use too much of it but just the required quantity, or you'll have to remove the exceedance afterwards, which is not a very pleasant task to do, so just save yourself the trouble. Actually, you should put as little paste as possible, because the exceeding paste will just melt (due to the heat) and you'll have to remove it afterwards. It's a lot better that you put just the right amount, which will just evaporate when the tin comes.

- I don't know if it's the same product for every seller, mine was "Sold by ADL Wholesale and Fulfilled by Amazon."

- The box is indeed half empty, but I guess the 30g of paste are present... Anyways it will probably take me years to finish it, so I don't really care.
