Awesome for computer case modding!
Pros: Awesome little tool to mod my PowerMac G5 case. Worked just fine.
Cons: Cutting bit that came with the dremel broke within 5 minutes of using it, I suggest buying cutting heads before hand. (For new users) The cutting heads wear out so you do need to continuously buy them if you want to keep using it.
Other Thoughts: Great tool overall, also very affordable.

Unchanged for 50 years
Pros: simplest dremel with little than can go wrong; proven design; very likely to be more durable than the higher end models; plenty of spare parts and accessories; easy to repair
Cons: no speed control; lower torque than top model; materials are slightly less robust than each preceding model similar to it in the past
Other Thoughts: Its a remake of the first model that Dremel made famous 50+ years ago. Dremel makes a version with every new product release, just renaming it, but it has all the same parts design. The simplest model has the least problems with durability proven over half a century. Models that have built in speed control tend to overheat the controller, damaging it and its electronics; the longer you use it the more likely it can happen. If you need speed control, get a Chinese copy of a benchtop Staco variac: they are most heavy duty, and more than rated for this tool; it will reduce input voltage and thus, speed, without overheating itself or the drill, and again a simple design, variacs will last a lifetime. You can also get a triac light dimmer, but variacs are built like tanks.

simple cheap, not pro
Pros: If you want a starter tool this might work for you, but please don't let this tool turn you away from the amazing usefulness of Dremel tools. To be fair I've owned this tool or similar for 15 years and even though I have two lithium versions, I still keep the ac version around.
Cons: It has no solitary on/off switch: you have to scroll through the speeds to turn it off. I turn the tool on and off so many times in an evening, that I often just leave it running safely in a special enclosed cradle I built for it. The bits that come with it are overly specialized, meek, and don't full fill the true calling of the tool.
Other Thoughts: Milwaukee makes a truly amazing lithium dremel, that has an on/off switch with separate speed control. That paired with the Dremel brand EZ-Lock abrasive blades, plastic/ceramic cutting blade and small abrasive point bit makes this genre of tool absolutely indispensable.
