Great value for money. A small machine easy to hold and use, although I haven't had the machine long enough to know about its reliability. On my sander, the on-off switch was a little difficult to operate, and the vacuum attachment did not seem to collect very much of the dust produced. However, considering the price and its effectiveness at sending I would rate this good value.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jay2424 Needed a quick replacement
Sander blew up on job. So brought this one as a quick replacement. Very surprised at the quality and even got a discount in store. Nice little sander.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MADDIY Great if it starts
This was my second of these products. The first wouldn't start so I exchanged it for another. The second worked for a while before the starter switch gave up again. Taking it back tomorrow to get my money back. Time wasted not be able to do intended jobs and going to and fro - grrrrr! I'd stay away from this product until they change the starter switch design.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Nismod Was ok to begin with
Im starting to see a pattern with these Titan products..
Just like their heatgun, this sander has the same "only a matter of time til it fails" switch.
Extremely vague and difficult to locate the switch beneath the dust cover. Takes 3 or 4 attempts to switch it on or off at times. The same switch is already playing up on my heatgun and has to be tapped to get it to respond, this will most certainly go the same way, as it already appears unresponsive at times, and then all of sudden fires up even though you already took your hand away.
To the sander itself... I bought it a few weeks ago, and am returning it this evening as its already faulty.
Even without the fault i was disappointed how fiddly it is to get 1/4 sheets to actually stay in place on this thing.. 1mm out in your cutting of the full sheets and it will not fit. Its like trying to stuff an octopus in a pillowcase on this thing.
The sander keeps changing speed (even though there is no speed control), pausing almost to a complete stop at times (no im not putting any pressure on it), and the NOISE!! it sounds like its literally ripping itself to pieces inside, a sheer metal on metal schreek thats so loud its deafening even with ear defenders on.
I also have a Titan planer, that ive also had to return twice already because its impossible to set the cut depth correctly because someone at the factory keeps fitting the depth control knob in the wrong place.
Moral of the story.. i think if you need something cheap for a one off job Titan may be ok (although personally id probably just go and hire a tool rather than buy any more of this junk). If youre going to need the tool more than once, id say buy something more expensive (which is what i shall now go and do).
