Was moving into a new place and didn't want to buy a bunch of furniture, so decided to refinish some old stuff & make some. Was moving from overseas so basically had zero tools with me. This was one of the first tools I bought after a lot of research, and even though it's more expensive than many sanders you see, it is well worth the premium. Dust collection is excellent, in fact if I need to sand something around the house will reach for this often as it creates way less dust than using a piece of sandpaper. Variable speed, which I thought would be a gimmick, is actually very useful. As I didn't have many other tools I tended to 'abuse' this one by using it for all sorts of stuff it really isn't design for (rounding edges, smoothing curves, etc). Always worked great. It's worthwhile finding the hard baseplate if you can too, can then use this for more serious material removal. Carrying case holds tool + some sandpaper. The sandpaper in envelopes doesn't fit too well though, they should have made a little more room to hold extra sandpaper I think. Use by my girlfriend as well a lot, she found it pretty comfortable, and liked the variable speed as she was more comfortable with it set a little slower.

Difficult to clean after heavy usage. Left swirl marks; I am a very experienced woodworker.

I use the sander a lot and it has proved out to be the best one I ever bought.

The best orbit sander I have used and I have used all major brands, this on is far above any others on the market.
Better than any sander I've ever owned.

I used my old orbital sander for 30 years. When the switch went bad i bought the Bosch random orbital sander. It's so much better that I won't bother fixing the old one. The ROS20VSK makes short work of the rough sanding on raw wood and puts on a super smooth surface for finishing. Sandpaper is easy to change and the best part is that the built-in dust collector really works. There's virtually no dust in the air when I've finished sanding.

Bought it 2 moth ago for my kitchen resurface project, had to sand it down to the wood, it was a dream to work with, take off the sanding disk and put on the new one I love it.

Bought this to use on woodworking and, with a vacuum, drywall sanding. Works like a champ. The only thing I have a problem with is the speed control. Not needed. Run it wfo
love the speed control

I am glad I bought this but I do wish it had an angle on it or an adapter for an angle

Great sander but it sucks because I can't even buy a replacement filter.
Great beginner sander
from Toledo, OH, United States
I highly recommend this sander for beginners. Also when this sander is hooked up to a shop vac it is virtually dust free, especially when using higher grits of paper.

I have had mine for over a year now. Continue to be happy with it. Let the tool do the work.
