Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased Just to be clear, I'm a novice. I bought this thing for a single home project but somehow my wife managed to find many more projects that required my attention and the attention of this sander. It works great. I'm amazed that anyone would pay 2 or 3 times more for a sander. Maybe if your a pro you would want or need better but how much better could it be? You turn it on and it makes noise, the orbital thingy orbits and miraculously rough surfaces become smooth surfaces. The dust catcher works well, doesn't slide off and is easy to empty. No complaints. And as an added bonus it's a cool orange color that looks really manly when covered in saw dust. February 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I wish I would have bought this sander the first time I originally bought another orbit sander (R _ _ _ I)brand and my adult daughter used it to finish her makeup rack and it rattled itself apart just as all the product reviews stated. The Black & Decker sander is just GREAT and I am sanding old wood garage doors with about 60 years of paint and it is working perfectly. I love the way the sanding disk attaches to the sander with a screw on hook and loop pad which attaches to the standard hook and loop sanding discs. The old sander had an adapter pad that kept falling off and had to be constantly replaced at $5.00 each time. I highly recommend this sander. I only hope it lasts but will tell in due time!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just What We Needed Size, weight, and ease of use was perfect for sanding the surface of our coffee table. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little sander I need to sand some wood paneling in my family room, which was installed in the 1950s. Before priming and painting I wanted to do some light sanding using Diablo 150 sanding discs. The B&D 5" orbital palm sander is light weight and fast for 2 amps. After 5 minutes I could tell that it will not take me very long to sand the 20' stretch of panels surrounding my fireplace. Hardly any dust residue because most of the fine sawdust particles go in the bag. And, I really like the hook & lock system because the sandpaper disc stays put on the sander's pad, unlike the other 3 sanders I have owned. January 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Sander This is my first sander so I have nothing to compare it with, however, for what I needed (prepping a large room for painting), this worked perfectly. August 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Too Good! This is a great workhorse of a little sander! It sanded off the stain finish from an old table top with ease. I didn't have to put any stripper on it. It worked soooo good that my husband came to help and got carried away with it. He sanded the veneer pine wood off completely in one spot! Not happy with that, but it's good to know how well this sander works! I do love it! October 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase The drill was easy to use and light weight. Sanding pattern very smooth even with 60 grit grain pad. May 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great sander This is my first random orbit sander, so I don't have much to compare it to. But, I've used it several times and it works great. I like the velcro-style attachment for the discs, so changing them is a snap. Overall, this saves me a lot of sanding effort by hand! August 12, 2013
