does this have variable speed

no, but its random orbital, so the rate, direction and spin vary so it doesn't leave scratch marks...works very well.

5 in. Random Orbital Sander is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36.

Typical Porter Cable quality... worked fine for about a year then started having problems. I bought this about a year ago after my Skil sander died on me. I've been a carpenter for 12 years, specializing in trim and custom cabinetry and this is the only sander I've ever used that consistently caused swirl marks. I tried different brands of paper, even tried changing my sanding technique but it didn't make a difference. If you're just a weekend warrior that won't need much use out of this product then it probably provides a good value but I would not recommend this product to anyone that uses their random orbital on a regular basis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Sander, one design issue Rarely leaves swirls, easy to control, compatible with the newer 8 hole sand paper design. Cons: the dust collection port falls off the sander super easy when connected to a vacuum. Also, when you take the dust bag off the large round outlet is the exact size of standard vacuum hoses and wont connect. You need to drop down to a smaller hose to connect into one if the other options. Dust collection is definitely subpar to other sanders, but the other sanders im referring to left swirls so its worth the tradeoff to me.

Reasonable price and excellent performance on first project of building a mantle. It out performed my expectations for the price! I was aiming to plane/straighten the surfaces of old 8 ft scrap wood which had bowed slightly over time with a belt sander, which worked. But of course there remained very visible marks from the belt sander. This is my first orbital sander, but it did a great job at ridding the wood of any visible marks left by the belt sander without leaving noticeable marks itself. This up front work left the ripping and cutting easier with a good mantle in the end. I would recommend Porter Cable products to anyone!

The only problem was securing the connection between the sander and the dust collector. A YouTube video helped immensely. Either the instructions should indicate the degree of force you need to attach it or the whole unit should come attached from the manufacturer.

The problem I found is the chattering effect when using coarse(120 and lower) sand paper. I have another brand and it does not perform like that.
