Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrandonB dont read the negatives
Forget the negative reviews. I purchased this sander because my ex was living with me with her daughter who wanted spatter painted walls in her room. Upon our seperation, i need to sand down the walls before i could repaint as the spatter created raised surfaces. I didnt want to spend a ton of money for this job so i took a gamble and purchased this Ryobi. The paper clamps are not difficult if you have higher than a 3rd grade education. It took less than 5 seconds to figure it out and about the same to secure the paper. The unit ran for well over an hour with just a short break or two to change the paper. This unit performed like a pro and made quick work of these walls. I would highly recommended this sander to anyone looking to do a job on a budget.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pdpdad I own several Ryobi tools and have always been satisfied with them. Not true with this 1/4 sheet sander. The system for attaching the sandpaper is way under-designed. The spring clips are nor adequate to retain the paper and it comes out on a regular basis. Totally frustrating. I fought this for a week and gave up, and returned for a refund.

It easy to use. I like that you can us any type of sand paper. You just have to cut it to the size of the base. Work great on all of my projects

It works very well. Small enough for me (a woman) to handle and did not very nice job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fritz It did the job and worked fine
I used this product and sandpaper on a couple of wooden chairs and a front door. For these projects, the product worked fine and saved me a lot of time. A lot of manufactures make a similar product but I have had a lot of good recent experience from Ryobi products and wanted to stay with that manufacturer. It is also the most reasonable price of the various sanders that I looked at. I feel for the money and the result that I have had with it, it was a good choice.

I bought this to finish the corners of an old floor. Worked my beloved Makita to death and so I got this thinking it would work on bare wood. Nothing. No teeth at all. Does not take standard sanding sheets (had I known). Noisy. Sanding sheets difficult to load. What's to like? Nothing in my opinion. I will be returning this and paying more for hopefully something better. Would not recommend.

I have always been very satisfied with everything I've purchased from Home Depot. However, even though this sander works fine and serves the purpose I bought it for, I was disappointed to find that it had been used prior to my purchase. The tool was dirty and had saw dust in the collection bag when I opened what was supposed to be a brand new tool. Someone had either used it, then returned it, or it had been used in the store and placed back on the rack and sold as new. Thankfully, the sander works without problems. I have learned from this experience. I will be sure the next time to check the box for factory seals from now on.
