Very happy with my purchase
I just received my FX-951. I also ordered 5 tips, 4 extra sleeves and a spare brass curl. I still think the color scheme is cheesy looking but the station itself is great. The tips come to temp from cold start in just over 16 seconds, about half of my 936. The wand is very comfortable to hold and I feel I have better control with the tip being closer to my hand than my 936. I like the instantaneous sleep, I would have changed it to that if it wasn't the default. The sleeves are a bit hard to remove from the wand but at least I know that the lock up is solid. The fast wake up from sleep is nice, almost instantaneous. Even after 5 minutes in the cradle, it only took 6.5 seconds to come to temperature. The only thing I am not sure of is the beep. I may disable it. Honestly, I wish I could have afforded a JBC. But, the basic unit was $170 more than what I paid for everything and that didn't include all the extra tips I bought. Only 1 of the 2 tips the JBC comes with would have been useful to me, so to have the same tips I have, total price would have been over $300 more. Am I disappointed? Not in the least. This will serve me admirably for years to come.
