Gets the job done - with a few modifications
Not bad to start - works - gets hot enough. Made the modifications suggested, new firmware, replaced the paper tape, cold junction compensation. Then ran it probably 20 times to get it calibrated then created a profile for the board I had and it worked out very well. As a rule of thumb with this oven, before running a real board run an empty cycle and start from a consistent temperature. I always start at 50C. You gotta get all the parts hot if you have any chance of hitting the benchmarks. 100% recommend the new firmware if you do anything at all.

good
We have only used it a few times, but it works well. We checked the temperature against what is on the display and it is accurate within a degree or so. Easy to use. Compared to hobbling together a toaster oven to do the same job, this is a no brainer. Well worth the money.

This oven works and was as expected for the price. There's an exhaustive study on youtube on the modifications that need to be done. To be perfectly clear you HAVE to do these modifications or the oven will not function that well. The modifications in priority are: (1) remove paper tape and use kapton to replace it. (2) update the firmware. (3) add cold temperature sensor. (4) add air stirrer motor. I have not done #4 yet as that is a fair amount of rework but for the most part #1-3 are adequate.You get what you pay for here but the mods make it worth it IMO.

Research the issues before you purchase - with modifications this is a great machine!
Anyone thinking of purchasing this should research the interwebs for the pros & cons so you know what you're getting. If you do decide to purchase it I STRONGLY recommend completing the modifications as it will make the machine a whole lot better. I ran the machine both before and after the mods - no question they NEED done!I give it 4 stars for a couple of reasons:- The makers know about the issues and have done nothing to improve the design and the major issues can be resolved for less than $10- Which is the other reason I give it 4 stars. Pretty cheap & easy to make it a really nice machine and if you're purchasing this you most likely have the skills, tools and knowledge to fix the problems.

Nice tool
The cheapest reflow oven you could buy 2 years ago was around $1000 so I made my own from a cheap toaster oven. Now this one is under $300 and its a steal! My concern was that it would be very difficult setting custom cycles. In fact its not that hard to do at all. However two of the pre-programmed cycles work for my different solder pastes. The progress of the reflow cycle is plotted on a graph as the cycle progresses. Checking the temperatures witha thermocouple, you must keep the PCBs away from the front 1" of the tray. (where its close to the glass) Anywhere else, the temperature is consistent.

Surprise, it works!
After a bit of fiddling, I got this oven to work without modifications. The user interface is crap, and the oven heats a bit unevenly, and when the fan turns on I've worried that the parts would move around, but it works for small boards with 0803 and 1206 parts. For the price, it gets the job done. I've only used the lower melting bismuth/silver solder. Had to modify the profile a bit to get good results, but that is expected.
