Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aj Does a great job!
Since I would not be using a sander frequently I wanted to find one that did a good job but at the same time I didn't want to invest a lot of money. I read the reviews and decided to purchase this one based on those reviews. And they were very correct. It does an excellent job and the comments about the comfort were very helpful too. I used this sander for four days and it didn't bother my hand, wrist or arm. And I am very happy with the results. It is now put away until next year. I am very happy that I found this one.

Easy device to use with quality. But not good for corners.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Krissy Dust Collection flaw since day 1 !
Woodworking is our business and we use many Bosch products in our work shop and are pleased with them. However, I find this one to fall short. Since day 1 the dust collector is almost impossible to get off to empty. If I am lucky, after 5 minutes of turning, twisting and some cut up fingers, I am able to get one corner up. Perhaps I just got a bad one, or perhaps this is an actual design flaw. :(

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bronx Great results when it stays on
I bought this last year and it was used twice. I used it on the weekend and it wouldn't turn back on after it's been shut off, unless you wait for a while. Not reliable, regret buying.

We purchased this to sand down a 15 year old deck that had been clawed up by 2 large dogs and had a lot of wear and tear from the elements . This sander was easy to use and had more than enough power for the job . I can't wait for our next project

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYCaliforniHeights Get Er' Done ... Go To Sander
I have 3 sanders (4 if you include the PorterCable Oscillating multifunction tool): Makitta finishing orbital and DeWalt orbital, both of these use the flat 1/4 sheet sandpaper.
I prefer to start the sanding projects using the Bosh random orbital because this sander removes wood, paint and bondo in no time.
Pro's: fast material removal, easy disc change and has a dust filter.
Con's: filter needs to be cleaned frequently and the cap to the dust reservoir is difficult to lift off. Cannot sand inside corners.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by carpanter handy sander
I think this little sander can take a lot. I've sanded a house with it and a car and more . I did use sticker sanding pads so I don't know if i used the other ones with the holes in it would have messed it up, cause it does use the fan in the motor to suck up the dust and and put it in the trap.
