btw this is how i know about this stuff: we buy the connectors direct from the manufacturer, 52,000 pcs at a time and mass produce the harnesses for the products we sell...

When we do failure analysis, guess what we see... bad crimps... we also do a couple of small run pieces where the connections get hand crimped and then soldered... guess how many of these i have seen fail... zero.

problem is that soldering takes way too long... the crimp machine does 3000/hr wheras a guy with a hand crimper and soldering can do 350/hr.
