Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leslie Valve works perfect- review by an actual contractor
I have installed hundreds of these. Never had a bad one. I normally take the guts out before soldering. I think the reviewer that said they leak isn't a professional. I get these cheaper from a plumbing supply store online though. No bargain from Home Depot honestly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Nothing wrong with this valve.....
In soldering any valve one must use caution as to apply only the amount of heat required to cause the solder to fill the joint. Furthermore you need to concentrate the heat to the joint area and try to keep the heat low around the body of the valve. With today's lower temperature solders there is no reason to damage this valve. If you are worried about burning the washer simply remove the stem by backing off the packing nut and turning the valve handle counter clock wise until it comes out of the body. Solder it, wait till it cools and replace it.
Turn the water on and BAM! It worked. I'm installing this in my bathroom today and expect no problems what so ever. It ain't Rocket Science. Really.

Bought 3 of these installed then according to the directions, leaving the valve open while installing and not closing it until it is cool, and all 3 of them leak by after turning the water back on. They'll provide you only 99% shut-off, so you better have a bucket handy if you need to do any plumbing work.
