      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.

      works very well

      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

      So far have used it to sand between varnish coats and am very satisfied with it. My old sander would over rev if you took it of the surface you were sanding for even a second, leaving a mark where it touched back down . also it took forever to quit rotating after you turned the switch off. The Bosch is much better in this regard. Haven't used the dust filter as it was hooked to my shop vac. Wish that connection was a twist lock of sometime as I ended up taping vacuum hose to it as slip connection was kind of loose. also wish there was an 8 hole apaptor to use with Abranet disks as I had many of those on hand when my old sander died.

      Solid tool

      By eztrigger

      from Houston, TX

      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

      I bought this sander because I was fed up with my cheap quarter sheet sander and hand sanding was just too slow.  Overall I am pleased with the performance so far.  Construction quality has a solid look and feel and the tool has not faltered in the time I've used it.  The built in dust collection seems to work pretty well, although I found the integrated filter slightly frustrating when emptying.  The plastic case is good as well, although I would like to see it in the L-Boxx style like my other bosch tools.  I also found the integrated paper alignment tool only works if the sand paper is perfectly flat, other wise, the paper sticks before it is aligned.  As others have noted, it seems that light pressure is best, so proper grit selection is critical to effective use of this tool.  Noise levels are quite low and the vibrations are comfortable.  All in all, I would probably buy this one again if I had to buy another one.

      This Bosch variable speed sander is comfortable to use with its low vibration and noise level. Also, the filter is quite effective in collecting dust which minimizes the amount of clean up. It's a pleasure to use compared to my old pad sander. For the money, this is the one to buy.

              I am extremely happy with this sander and the price I paid. I use it for personal and professional work so it is running often and it is the one I grab out of my truck for all moderate to finish sanding. It runs very smooth and quiet with a comfortable grip and a well placed switch. I'm not a fan of any built in dust collection for any power tool, but when I need to do a quick sand in a clean area, this dust canister/filter works well. My only small gripe is that the canister cover is hard to remove. When I have my shop vac available, the connector that comes with the kit works perfectly. Great case as well. You will not be disappointed in this unit.

                  Ergonomically perfect, on-off switch in the right place, very quiet, light weight tool, good dust filter with canister and with vacuum. Requires very little pressure and works well for small and large hands. I made the right choice.

                      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

                      This is my fist ROS tool and i don't have any points of comparison. This said, I don't feel the need to go compare with or try something else because the sander works very well for my application. I make plaques and trophies as a hobby and realized soon enough that a small oscillating sander can work well in certain situations but are not very effective for large/flat surface. I thought I'd try this ROS and it works just as advertised. I was told that swirly marks tend to be an issue with such devices but I did not experience this issue. I start the tool at low speed, apply it to my work surface and slowly increase the speed as desired and it works like a charm. I saw in other reviews that other users wished the unit had a flat top surface to make it easier to change the sanding disk and I tend to agree. I guess it is a trade off between ergonomy and convenience. I wanted to add that I find Bosh's product registration process very convenient.
