Short lived, weak, noisey and rubbish
"I went against my better judgement and bought the cheap sander rather than a MacAllister or Bosch. My previous Bosch lasted 15 years. This model lasted me 15 days! Very poor. Motor cannot take any kind of continuous usage, which is kind of what you need when sanding. Motor burnt out after only a few prolonged sanding sessions. I was even warned by a friend who had similalry burnt out other B&Q own brand products (angle grinders, jigsaws). Don't waste your money and pay a few quid more for something that will last. Didn't remove material that well either as the movement seems limited and slow. And its noisey. I had to use ear defenders. Don't buy it."

Good Product
"Not being the best ever DIY person (more YDI - You Do It !) I am always a bit unsure of what to buy for specific jobs but this sander was easy to use and did a great job - even with me operating it ! Using the 'stick on' paper as opposed to the wrap around jobbies was ample and they lasted well. The only criticism I would have is that the dust collection was not fantastic and there was a lot of residue about when I'd finished. Overall though, pleased with the product and price and would recommend to anyone thinking about getting one that it represents good VFM"

Its ok, but might be worth paying a little more!!
"Sander does what its got to do, the only one real problem with it is it has not got the best way of holding sandpaper on the base there are only two wire arms that grip the ends of the paper, mine kept needing to be put back under the arms which got annoying after a while."

FAB!!!
"Bought this today, fantastic!! Went to purchase a different sander but couldnt get the right sheets so decided to get this instead, was cheaper, could get correct sheets and works wonderfully. Dont agree with other review, I had no problems at all with the dust bag, stayed in position and collected a good amount of the dust. Would highly recomend this sander."

Good Value
"I was impressed with the power, ease of use & build quality of this sander for the price. My only niggle was the dust extraction bag that will not stay on. This is a really bad design fault & could have, and should have, been rectified at the prototype stage. I have resulted to sticking the bag on - not ideal."
