Rated 1 out of 5Â by dt23 Broke in under an hour.
Was told when I returned this that I was the 5th person to take back this product, all with the same problem I had.
It worked fine until the rubber on the drive drum disintegrated. I didn't even get through the sanding belt it came with, so returned my 2 packs of unused sanding belts as well.
I was sanding a 3m Sq floor, it didn't need heavy sanding either. I got around 1/3 of the floor done before it gave up.
Some people have found this sander good, I wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by bigdogspaw A good sander
I bought this to sand off some planks and it did an amazing job. After a couple of days though, the drive belt disintegrated and the sander stopped working. I couldn't get a replacement drive belt so I took it back to the shop. They replaced it with another straight away - Result!
It is a good job, easy to fit new belts and adjust.

Can't say too much bad about this product, solid build and does the job it's meant to do.
Not too noisy either, which is a common fault of cheaper tools.
The only problem I had was the utterly poor quality of the dust collection bag. It is thin and flimsy allowing a great deal of dust to escape, and the zipper was so cheap that it broke the second time I emptied the bag. Fortunately I have a spare bag from an older burnt out sander that fit, but I would have had to return the product had I not had the spare dust bag
Have only used it on a single deck so can't really comment on the long term reliability, but I'd definitely rate this sander as good value for money
