"I needed a new sander which has top class dust collection. My wife has allergies and dust is one of the things that really doesn't help her. Using an attached vacuum cleaner, this tool is excellent for catching unwanted dust. Brilliant and so versatile. Gets into the most difficult of spaces and gives an excellent finish. Comfortable to hold in the hand, too, for long periods. I went with the intention of spending around £30 only. I have Bosch kitchen appliances but no other Bosch power tools. I am so pleased I decided to purchase this one; it does more than I ever expected it to do. I spent 4 times what I set out to spend. Well worth the money! I recommend this model to anyone wanting to buy a Detail Sander."
"Owned now for 6 months, used regularly with no faults. Very good for getting into those smaller spaces and seems happy to work on full power for hours without getting hot. The pad which the sandpaper attaches does melt when exerting to much pressure for extended periods on the tip but the this can be unhooked and moved so a different point is forwards. Though a little pricey it has served me well."
"I have used this for removing paint from and then sanding door frames and other domestic woodwork (not large areas).
The tool performs well, and the dust extraction facility, when plugged into a 2000W Dyson, performs extremely well. After two hours of use there was virtually no mess, and for the home user, this is one of the biggest plus points.
I can't comment on reliability, since I've only had it a couple of weeks, but performance is excellent. Towards the high end of the price range for this kind of thing, but worth it for the above reasons in my opinion."
