Don't even think about buying this (unless you like wasting money)

Summary: This sander is appalling badly designed and made. The build quality is poor and the sanding pad is connected by little plastic connections which broke just before the sander finally went bang. The detachable front pad didn't last for more than an hour before broken and then completely useless. I wished I used it more when I first had it, rather than waiting a year, as then I could have sent it back.

Summary: I had exactly the same problem as the reviewer below. The sanding pad is attached to the main body by plastic connectors. They broke. Once they brake there's nothing you can do. Time for the waste bin for this badly designed junk. And it's very expensive for what it is too. Another flaw; the tip of the pad, the bit you use to sand in corners, wore out straight away and it doesn't come with spares. Complete waste of money.
Summary: First one, rattled itself apart after 2 hours - I can't believe the sanding pad is connected to the unit by three plastic prongs - plastic heats/warps/rattles apart. Took back to where purchased and replaced it. Second one, did the same as the first, but only after 30 minutes. Got refund. Save your money and time.
Summary: Really chuffed with this wee number, I am revamping furniture and it is coming in very handy. It can be quite noisy and vibrates a lot in your hand and causes quite a funny sensation in your hand if you sand for too long, but each little attachment fits nicely around "round chair legs" etc, so I am happy with it as it saves a lot of time.
Summary: good value, saves lots of time, would like it to have a better place to hold it by, for instance a handle to grip, but plenty of sandingdiscs, & attachments, you can get in to all the corners,
