Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FreeBird My favorite sander so far
I have had many different brands of these sanders over the years and this one is my favorite to date, It is very comfortable to use, it's very easy on the hands during prolonged use and does not have as much vibration as a lot of other orbital sanders, dust collection bag isn't bad for this model but I do use a universal dust collection kit I bought from a specialty woodworking store. I am a very busy furniture repair man/refinishing shop and I go through one of these sanders every few years and so far after a year of use it has not failed me at all and left me with nothing to desire, it's safe to say this has become my number 1 go to sander in my shop. All you have to do is use good sand paper and let the tool do the work for you and you can't go wrong with this sander.

I replaced a Porter Cable RO sander that I've had for years and was satisfied with that unit. The Dewalt seems to have less vibration and has a higher amp motor. It's also a bit more compact. The 8 hole pad makes it nearly dustless. After a few hours of use, I'd recommend the Dewalt. Durability has yet to be determined but my first impression is all positive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FritzClifford WORST DeWalt tool Ever!!!!
The DWE6421K Random Orbit Sander is by far the worst DeWalt tool we have ever purchased. The hook and loop Pad Assembly (N329079) has poor quality and too few hooks per sq. in. to adequately hold professional 36 grit sanding discs from either Mirka or SIA for more than 8.5 minutes of use. We tried replacing the Pad Assembly, in the hopes that we simply received a defective pad but the replacement was just as bad. By comparison, the higher quality and greater density hook pads (151281-08) of the discontinued D26541 or DW421 Random Orbital Sanders both hold the aforementioned sanding discs for over 1.5 hours before they lose adhesion or simply wear out. It is EXTREMELY disappointing that DeWalt has allowed this lemon to infiltrate its otherwise sterling product line and tarnish what was up until now, a stellar reputation. DO NOT BUY THIS TOOL.
FYI - We are remodeling contractors who have used over $20,000 worth of DeWalt tools in the last 20 years. We have an extremely high opinion of them and have and would recommend their line to other contractors or serious DIY'ers. Except for this LEMON!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SawDust So far so Good
I bought this sand a while ago and finally got to use it yesterday... I have have three other orbit sanders that I will now be selling or tossing in the trash. Ill never use them again after using the dewalt sander.
The sander runs smooth and easy. Anyone could use this. Never felt like I had to really hold on to it like others I have used. The feeling like the sander is going to jump out of your hands.... I'm sure there is another brand or two that makes a good orbit sander but this one.... is one is great.
I would waste my time again with store brand products. The reason I bought this is because I was returning a broken (out of the box) sander. Funny thing, the person that took my return told me not to buy "the store brand products"... in her words.... "they're terrible" and she works there and sees all the returns...
One last thing, I don't want to say I didn't like this feature but more like I'm not used to it. That is the On / Off switch. The way it covered and you can't really feel it without pushing on it... not a big deal just something for me to get use to.
Last thing.... Should something break and it not work anymore, I would buy the same one again.

From the conveniently placed 'on/off' switch to the streamlined handhold, this economical sander is durable and comfortable to handle.
The sand dust bag actually seems to get most of the dust and the cord is ample for maneuverability

This sander is powerful and does a great job so far. It is a little more expensive but you get what you pay for.
