Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris T Excellent, useful tool
This was really very handy, sanding took a lot less time than by hand and was easy to use - if a little noisy.
The pads are much more robust than paper, so they don't wear out quickly - it worked out much faster and easier for almost the same outlay as buying just sandpaper.

Purchased this sander recently to sand down wooden
frames with fairly small panes of glass.
Easy to use and gets into all the corners, done the
job in half the time. Very pleased.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lukeyboy Started out well, but broke within a few months
If you'd asked me 3 weeks ago what I thought of this, I would have said it was great, one of the best things I bought. Used it to sand varnish off a bannister and it did a great job. Versatile, easy to use and the extra attachment was very handy for reaching awkward areas.
But, after less than three months of very intermittent use it suddenly became incredibly noisy (painful to the ears) and then suddenly the whole bottom sanding plate came loose and has now fallen away from the machine.
Extremely poor construction, the sanding plate is held on by thin strips of plastic. Unbelievable considering that this should be a hardwearing mini-power tool.
Also worth noting that the sanding pads are very expensive to replace. I tried some cheaper versions but the velcro was not good enough, so probably need to stick to the B&D ones.

I wanted a small sander as the intricate panels of my hardwood front door required sanding prior to repainting. As a result I purchased this little gem from my local Homebase store.
Various models were on display but I chose this model as (although male) I have quite small hands and it fits comfortably within my grasp.
The sander itself is a delight to use, being very compact, versatile and powerful for it's size.
Do yourself a favour and get one while you can at this bargain price; you will not regret your purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 Light and small
This is great for me as it is easy to hold and very light. It still does a good job.
