    pretty much, unless you welding outside in the wind. the weld is more like stick welding, needs teh slag chipping off after. also you cant went such thin materiol with it as with gas. go for the best welder you can afford. MIG Welding Forum thats a good mig welding forum :P also, dont go for disposable gas bottles, more hassle than there worth.
