There's not a lot to set up once you unbox this small orbital sander. Remove a bit of cardboard, glance over the small instruction booklet, undo a twisty tie and you're basically done. You'll, of course, need to purchase some compatible sandpaper; I purchased DEWALT DW4303 5-Inch 8-Hole 120-Grit Hook-and-Loop Random Orbit Sandpaper (5-Pack) and DEWALT DW4301 5-Inch 8 Hole 80 Grit Hook and Loop Random Orbit Sandpaper (5-Pack) for my little project though there are other options.
For my small project, I did not use my shop vac to connect to the sander. Now after reading several reviews, I'm not so sure I would be able to connect my shop vac to the sander anyway. Regardless, the small dust bag did a pretty good job of collecting the fine paint and wood dust as I worked around my address sign. The bag holds a good bit of dust meaning you're not emptying it every few minutes. If you intend to use this with a shop vac you will likely need to purchase an adapter based on my reading.
This little orbital sander made short work of the paint on my address sign and I was down to bare wood in no time. The sander is smooth and easy enough to move around and I didn't feel like it was fighting me at all. Even finer details like sanding down the edges of my address sign were no problem at all. Changing the sanding paper pads is as easy as ripping one Velcro-secured pad off and slapping on the new one, just ensure you line up the holes on the bottom!

I have no regrets about ordering this orbital sander. Honestly, I wish I'd ordered it years ago instead of being stubborn and hand sanding so many small projects. I'm a fan, recommended!
4 stars instead of 5 because it doesn't come with connections for standard shop vac.
Very smooth - low vibration
Variable speed - from very powerful to very gentle
Light and ergonomic
Great DeWALT quality
It doesn't come with attachments to hook it up to the shop vac. So I had to use duct tape.

My only complaint (and the reason for the 4 stars) is that it does not easily attach to a shop-vac. Eventually I went to the hardware store and found a rubber 1.25 to 1.5 inch coupling in the pluming section. It cost $5 and included a ring clamp at each end. The small end fit over the sander exhaust and the larger end had a good pressure fit over the adapter I use on my shop-vac hose. These couplings come in various sizes so you should be able to find one that works with your setup.
Having adjustable speed is super handy too.
I've personally used king and Makita random orbitals and I have to stay that I like this one the best. I am a rather small woman so using any power tool with crazy vibration is uncomfortable quickly, but I can use the DeWalt for hours no problem. This sander is super smooth to use and I recommend it as a hobbyist and as a professional.
The `hook and loop` bottom is great. The ability to change sanding grains within seconds is awesome. I just bought a set of 100 no name multi pack off of amazon and they work great. They stick perfectly.
As for the adjustable speed, I haven't needed to adjust the speed to lower than 6 (which is the top), but I would see using the slower speeds on super fine work where the sanding might burn. Otherwise this sander is amazing, and also comes with a case that fits the sander and the dust catcher....perfect to transport without having any residual sawdust falling out.
Changing the discs couldn't be easier with the hook-and-loop (Velcro) grip. The only economical way to run this sander is to buy these discs in larger quantities (50 or more per package).
