5 in. Random Orbital Sander is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for small occasional projects. Good for small occasional projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Sander I've owned a few orbital sanders in my day and none are/were better than this one. It's solid, a good weight, and works like a charm. Out of the box it comes with 3 sanding pads: 80 grit, 100 grit and 120 grit, which is a great start for most woodworking projects. I immediately used mine to finish a table i was building for a friend; it worked as expected with no hassle or fuss. Fits well into your hand and doesn't overly vibrate and seems to have a tough motor that can take some long term use. As with most dust bags on appliances this one only works so-so, but dust is not a big problem with this type of sander.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why pay more? I'm impressed with how well this sander works for the price. I love the hook and loop system for changing sand paper. Just pull off the old one and stick on the new one. It is so quick you won't waste any time. This sander has plenty of power for that medium duty sanding job. The key is to let the sander do the work. Don't press down hard on it. The palm grip is rubberized for comfort. It also includes a dust bag. The on-off switch is protected from dust. And it comes with a 2 year warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sander After using an older model sander by a different company for many projects this one works like a dream! The velcro pads stick on and actually stay on (unlike my old one where they flew off every couple minutes). I appreciate that it include three starter pads of different grits. It's easy to handle and doesn't leave my arm with a weird tingly feeling like the last one did after so much vibration. I also really like the dust bag collector which my old one didn't have. The quality of the actual sanding it does its good as well. I wish I had invested in a new sander years ago. It would have saved hours of my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sander I'm not a power user and don't do a lot of building, so I have made it through my little projects fairly well so far with a little Black & Decker Mouse sander. When you have larger jobs, though, it takes a lot of time and patience. I got this for those times when I just need to strip or smooth something out in a hurry or do the bulk of the job, and then finish up with the Mouse. This sander is a whiz! It uses "hoop and loop" (velcro) sanding discs that stick easily to the sander, just like the mouse, but I can get so many other grits to work with. The collection bag leaves a lot to be desired, but I didn't actually expect it to work. I'm happy to add this sander to my meager collection of tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Impressive I was unfamiliar with the Genesis brand of tools from Rich Power but so far I am pleasantly surprised with the quality and features of the product. My old orbital sander had issues with its bearings and the hook backing pad didn't do a very good job of holding the hook and loop sanding disks long enough to get the full life out of them. This unit holds the disks throughout the life of the disk. Unlike my old sander, the on/off switch is on the front while my old one had switches on the left and right sides. That old design led to me accidentally turning off the sander on numerous occasions. This design seems like an improvement. The motor is strong enough and speed fast enough that the disks produce a good cutting action without having to use any downward pressure on the sander just as the manual indicates. The design of the gripping area seems just fine for my hand and after an hour of use I didn't seem to have any hand fatigue. The dust collection feature also seems to work better than on my old sander. I used it today to sand old pallet wood and some pieces of reclaimed 2x4 to make a plant stand for my wife. (See pictures.) The motor didn't seem to heat up after about an hour of use. I used it with 80, 100, and 120 grit and did a bit of final sanding by hand with 180 since I did not have any finer disks with the 8-hole design readily available but the finish 120 grit was pretty darn smooth and swirls were not visible to my eyes. This brand seems well worth a look if you are in the market for an orbital sander. The price seems aggressive and the quality seems to be there as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good entry level sander This is a fine entry level sander. With a 2 amp motor, it is definitively not the most powerful on the market, but it will get the occasional sanding job done. As for any entry level product, I tend do discard the original sanding discs and replace them with some quality ones such as Diablos, it makes a massive difference. I also use a respirator which makes the sanding process somewhat bearable. The dust collector works just OK as many of these random orbital sanders, and I much prefer to hook the sander directly to a shop vac by simply using duct tape, not very pretty but works fine. Overall, this is a very fine product for the price. The product will get most jobs done for the weekend dyer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits My Hand! I enjoy using this little orbital sander. It fits my hand and is easy for me to move around my work area. It would fit a little better if the top portion had an indention for my fingers, but all-in-all, as a women using the sander, it fit my hand. It came with a dust catcher bag but as the other review I've read, it may work better if I connect it to my Shop Vac. It also came with 3 sanding discs that are easy to remove and change out. Would I purchase again? Yes.
