"This sander is fantastic value. I bought it at £8 and it's even cheaper now. Good no-nonsense sander that does what's expected of it. I used it to sand two exterior oak doors and it worked fine. I have a B&D orbital sander and firstly it did not perform well and secondly the B&D sanding sheets are more than a pound each. Cut up strips of sheet sandpaper, I added extraction holes using a wad punch, and these performed excellently at less than 20p each. If I'd thrown it away at the end of this job I'd have still been quids in."

"I had been using a name-brand, much-more-expensive, sander on skirtings and facings until it snapped in two.
I bought this item due to the price hoping it would allow me to complete the project but wish now that I'd purchased it at the outset.
For those light sanding jobs you won't go wrong with this."

"This is the first electric sander i've bought, its not bad but doesnt sand as well as i had exepected. I was using 120 grit paper though, ie fine. locking mechanism for paper works well, trigger's a bit iffy though it doesnt like to turn off from locked on position. Overall for the money i really cant complain. But not as good as the direct power angle grinder i bought, which has been brilliant."

"Wasn't expecting much from this but needed a sander with dust extraction and thought this wouls suffice, how wrong was I?
the vacuum sucked the pad onto the wall as there is no bypass for the extraction and the paper hold mechanisum wasn't really man enough and the 3 sheets of sandpaper suplied just ripped right off. I guess it's OK for light work and not for use with the dust extraction certainly not a trade item.

"I have bought quite a few sanders from screwfix, and surprised by how good some of the cheaper ones are, but not this one. it seems to vibrate your hands more than the sand paper ! I would buy a different one, maybe the slightly more expensive one."
