Rated 3 out of 5 by Arindam Das Quality Product. Wrong description
I buy majority power tools and/or any tools from BOSCH only as they are reputed brand. This is no exception. But not happy with Homebase product description. It has mentioned that box contains 3 sanding sheet. But in reality it has only 3. Which is quite misleading. Please ensure your description is at sync with actual product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank lester Bosch Orbital Sander
I bought this sander as my other one had stopped working and Homebase offered the best deal around by a mile. Odering on line was dead simple and the sander arrived in 2 days. A great service!
It was different to my old one as it has no handle, and it took me a while to get used to it , but now its brilliant.
Cerainly recommend this sander to anyone and the Homebase price and service beat anyone on the net or in store. what more could you ask for, and its a Bosch!!!. If you want a sander you will go along way to beat this.

An excellent time saving device. Big enough to cover a good bit of ground quickly and small enough to get into almost all of the trickier bits.
Comfortable in your hand and not too noisy or dusty considering what it actually does.

I bought thisto sand down my garden gates (8x6) and garden table prior to protecting. A huge time saver, however it does leave score marks if not perfectly flat, so you have to be quite careful. Having said that a very useful buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Slashdot Dashdot Excellent...Looks good feels good does good...
I have found this to be a quality bit of kit does it's job very well makes sanding a breeze. Minimal dust fits in the hand nicely all in all I would recomend this. Would have given 5* except that it came with only 1 disc and not 3 as advertised. Will go back to store to see what they say. Well done Bosch, like my dad's drill I hope this lasts 20+ yesrs

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Poor hook and loop system
The hook and loop (velcro) system on this sander is incredibly poor. The sanding discs do not stay fixed - mine lasted about half an hour before flying off. I even replaced the bosch rubber backing pad, in case it was a one-off - it had exactly the same problem. I was also careful to not apply excessive pressure.
If you look at other sanders and compare the velcro fastener, you can immediately see why this sander performs so badly. Bosch really need to look at this problem.
The one positive, is that homebase kindly gave me a full refund. Thank you homebase!
