Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ProCon1 Very Happy with My Results
I was a bit concerned about getting this after reading the reviews but I have used other products by Dustless and been very happy with them. I think the key is I have their vacuum and the products work very well together. If your using a cheap shop vac or something like that this probably won’t work to well for you. You need a vacuum with very good suction to get the sander up to the correct speed. I have used this on 2 jobs so far and it worked great and saved me valuable clean up time. The package came a bit damaged but the sander was fine, but this was probably a shipping issue. Also the video on the product is informative on its use.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jsp0511 Not a fan of this attachment
Used this sander with the dustless technologies vacuum. Vacuum is amazing, the sander leaves much to be desired. The Velcro portion of the sander that the paper attaches too started to peel at the corner so eventually I wouldn't be able to use the Velcro sanding sheets. Second, as others stated, you cannot get into the corners at all and the sander is just not very aggressive. Lastly, when sanding by hand (without the included pole), the sander wants to tip sideways at times. More importantly, the hose continuously falls out of the head forcing me to use two hands, one to sand and the other to hold the hose from falling out of the head. I contacted the manufacturer who said they could fix my issues and asked if they could call me "tomorrow". I said ok but they never called. I returned the product and bought a simpler dustless hand sander.

While it may not be as aggressive as I would have liked it to be, it did a fine job. The time I saved in prep and cleanup was far greater than if I hand sanded due to the inevitable countless hours of cleaning up after traditional methods. I wish I had this tool 2 years ago when I did 30 boards of sheetrock in our home.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DustinmyHair The product is definitely dustless
The sanding is not aggressive enough, even when trying a rougher sandpaper. I had to cut pieces of other hook and loop sandpaper for the product, not very convenient. I only used the product about 2 hours before deciding to return the item to my local Home Depot. Product does not sand well enough to produce a smooth finish, whether using the recommended "light touch" or trying to use a little more pressure. Product is definitely dustless, but certainly not "turbo."

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bull dustless turbo drywall sander
i have done two jobs and ended up sanding by hand, vaccum great, it is dustless, but the head is worthless, does not work in corners, or flats not aggressive enough, and you have to buy sandpaper that goes on the round one and cut down. i going to ditch the head and try to find something that will work with vaccum, i payed alot of money to have to use my hand sander?

It is not worth the $8.00 it cost to ship it. I do small and large sheet rock repairs, this tool is absolutely worthless for any size job. I guess if you could take 2 days to sand the drywall, it would eventually get the job done. Hand sanding may be dusty, but it is much faster.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eprHorsham Good tool for DIYer
Dust mitigation is remarkable - sanding is about the same as using a pole sander

The dustless part is good, but you have to hook it to your vacuum with duct tape unless you have the kind it is made to connect to. But it is Slo-o-o-o-w. It should be made to use drywall sanding mesh instead of sandpaper.
