Metcal PS800

How many have used/tested this device already?
Maybe already with lead-free components/solder-wire?

Need some final remarks before deciding which metcal to order..though the bigger one with 750 euros is mostly out of my budget..but if the PS800 is just comparable to my Weller WTCP soldering iron then there is no need to switch for me.

Re: Metcal PS800

PS800 is the best, i use the 5mm screwdriver head bit.with a little practice this Bit can be used to even solder small Pad diameters (use it vertically) the Gun heats up in approximately 12 seconds.
