Rated 4 out of 5Â by DBHG Brilliant product
I am one of the silent majority that reads the reviews but never usually writes one.
Well that changed when I used this sander. Originally bought the larger version but realised that it was too bulky and heavy. So returned that unit and swapped for this.
It makes such light work of the sanding that the jobs I needed to do were done in no time.
It does not vibrate too much, it's not that noisy and it's light and controllable.
Really happy with my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Tomthechip STAY AWAY FROM THIS SANDER
As a experienced carpenter working on a wide multitude of projects this sander does have great advantages. Its price tag for one, and not to be under rated long power chord, and good performance despite a lot of vibration. My dissatisfaction is due to the following reasons;
I have had this sander for just under 2 years and now the rotating mechanism has chewed through the plastic fittings of the baseplate and has destroyed the sander.
Secondly, Erbauer have practically no facility for replacing spare parts so this means a new sander within two years.
Thirdly they have dropped the plastic hard-case and now sell it with a canvas bag, not ideal for looking after your gear.
Fourthly when compared to other palm sanders, for a little more money you can pick up a Makita sander widely found to have great reviews, (don't take my work for it, have a look# with a 3 year warranty with a registration within a number of days of purchase.
All in all don't be sucked in by the price tag, invest a little more and register for an extensively longer warranty # a must for the tradesman) buy cheap and pay twice, or invest wisely.

Too heavy, too loud and packed in after using it half a dozen times. Normally pleased with Erbauer. Pay a bit extra and buy the Makita model. No comparison.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by MSB87 Worst Sander Ive ever owned.
This is not just the worst sander Ive ever owned its actually the worst power tool ive ever owned.
It just rips apart sandpaper after a few minutes off use.
The clamping design is flawed and just creates 2 contact points on each end resulting in tears .
The punchplate has alignment issues and causes irregular tears.
Im not sure if Im just unlucky and got a dodgy one but a cheap Â£10 knockoff out performs it.
Its only redeeming feature is it comes in quite a nice bag/case.
