The low profile and the size was the compelling factor in my purchase. I am very happy with it. It fits my hand very well and is comfortable to use, much like the air powered unit I own. I like the hook/loop paper attachment and the size.
I really like the dust collection, but if you plan to do a lot of sanding you might want to invest in a dust collection system, The bag fills pretty quickly, which means it is collecting a lot of the dust, not all the dust, but a lot.
The sander could use to be heavier. This seems an odd statement since every one wants lighter. In this case the sander seems to have a little mind of its own when on a flat surface. The orbital action makes the sander want move about the work piece in random directions. If it was heavier the orbital action wouldn't be such a factor in influencing where it goes on the work piece. Don't take this observation as a negative, it isn't, just an observation and product improvement suggestion I compare this with its air powered cousin which is a bit heavier, and is less influenced by the orbital action on the work piece. Just to qualify my statement, the courser the sand paper the more the sander is influenced by the orbital action.
Very well made product, as you might expect from Dewalt, very pleased with the purchase.
I love the vacuum/dustless function of this sander. When hooked up to shop vac, you get almost zero dust. I found that the flexible 2.5" shop vac hoses fit over the outer part of the vacuum output or you can get adapters that fit into the inner tubes (the vacuum output takes up to 3 sizes).
This sander is fast w/o having the aggressive deep cuts of a belt sander. But if you are looking to take off a lot of material 1st, you might start with a belt sander and finish the work off with this one.
Again, very very happy with this sander.
p.s. one downside is the speed control is right by your palm and its easy to slowly adjust it as you are sending. After a while you have to spin it back to the speed you were at.
On the up side. None of us had any issues with holding it. Dust collection was the best I have ever seen on a RO sander.
If your work calls for fine finishing you may want to avoid this sander. We have 2 other random orbit sanders and neither one has ever left a swirl mark like this one.
Wish I knew if the Porter Cable version was any differant?? I will go back to the Bosch.
