I picked up the ROS20VSC at a local store recently to handle a large job. Iâ€™ve been pleased with it for several reasons. First, is simply fits the hand naturally. Even after hours of use, the lightweight and the ergonomics are easy on you. The dust collector does an amazing job catching the particles and with its built in filter, nothing makes it back out on to the air you breathe. I did not anticipate how nice this would prove until I realized I donâ€™t have to stop every so often to clean my glasses. The sander comes with an adaptor to connect your vacuum which works quite nicely as well. Then there is the power I have been using it for days and while the machine is powerful enough to tackle the wood, somehow it is still easy on the hands. I have not taken advantage of the variable speed settings. I have found it works best for me at the highest setting, so I have left it there. Finally, I had consider placing an order for a model online because it came with a hard-sided case. But I had to get my hands on it right away so I â€œsettledâ€� for the model at my local store. I was pleased to see that it comes with a soft-sided case that works just fine. I am very pleased with my choice and highly recommend it.

I bought this sander after review of the many reviews on sanders at this price mark. I had an ole school craftsman belt sander that would take the bark off an oak tree. IT burned up after 22 years, so I bought this one. I am pleased with its handiness and lightweight ergonomics. While I knew it was less powerful than my previous belt sander, it does the job for medium and finish sanding. If your looking to do gross removal, buy a high amp high power belt.

Comments about Bosch Tools 5" VS Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:
I research numerious ROS for it seemed like months and finally got this with a gift card I got for Christmas and am really impressed. Have always had the quarter sheet sanders and this sander is in a completely different catigory. Quiet, powerful yet easy to handle and the best dust collection I've seen. I also have a Bosch jigsaw that is equally above all other brands. I will definitely save my money and buy more Bosch brand tools.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought the Bosch because I was unhappy with another brand of ROS. SO glad I did! Like night/day as to quiet, smooth running and stock removal. Dust bag a lot better, too.
Ease of use

With the correct grit this sander can rough & finish for the perfect results.
variable speed works great
By Flying Fish
from Oakfield New York
Received this for a Christmas present and have only a few times but love the power, quietness and variable speed. My old one did not have this feature and I will never buy another without it.
Light weight; Versatile; creates smooth finish with minimal orbital marks; good dust collection; Time will tell is this is a winner

I replaced my old sander with this one. I love the smooth running, variable speed sander. It seems easier and less fatigue on my hand. Highly recommended!!!!
Works well for the DYI guy
from Virginia, United States
I bought this sander a few months ago and have used it more than a half dozen times for various project since then. It works great. I am not a heavy user and I don't have any projects where I expect excessive use or need to remove a significant amount of material. I use it for cabinetwork, smooth rough sawn wood, etc. The disks stay attached and the variable speed is nice. It works well with no down side.
Comfortable design, great performance
from Chicago, IL, United States
Bought this a few weeks ago and used it to sand down several doors before painting. I found unit to be very comfortable and easy to use. Love the hook & loop system for sanding pads, makes change over quick and easy. I connected the sander to my shop vac and was amazed at how well it performed relative to dust. There was virtually no dust in the room! I spent a little more on this model but am very pleased with my decision to go with another Bosch product.
Since I purchased this sander I have been very pleased with the results.
