Lasted 2 hours
Ok, it's cheap, but some Titan gear is cheap and pretty decent. This sander, sadly, does not fall into that category for me.
I lightly sanded 4 square meters, in certainly less than 2 hours usage, and it wore through one corner of the belt running plate.
It should have lasted longer than that if I'd utterly abused it for 2 hours. Enough said.
Screwfix took it back no questions asked of course.
Since others have clearly fared better, I guess it was just some sort of fault, but still, I bought a Makita to replace it...

Good value product
My Rockworth belt sander finally blew up and since they don't seem to make belt sanders any more, I chose the Titan product as an agressively priced replacement. Comes in a big plastic storage case which I don't need, and a pair of spare brushes for the motor. The only feature lacking, is the ability to be clamped to a workmate with the belt upwards, which I found very useful on the Rockworth. Has variable speed and a simple to use belt adjuster. Has a two year warranty so if it lasts more than two years I will have had a bargain!

Good value works well
I only purchased this to replace my orbital sander which died and I needed it right now. My preference for orbital sanders was not available until 'tomorrow' so I plumped for the belt sander instead. Wow - it works really well and cost less than half of what I was going to pay for a new orbital sander.
I have used it steadily for two days with no problems. Even the dust bag works well and collects all the dust. I was a bit doubtful about the dust bag as it feels quite flimsy and it is only a push fit to the sander so I kept expecting it to pop off, but it didn't.
