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.

The hook and loop sand paper attchment never falls
The speed adjustment makes refinishing a snap. Easy to get the power and smoothness you want. A lot quieter then my older sander that this replaced. I've had good results with Bosch products over the years.

I have had the 6 inch sander for several years and I still love it - but it is up north for the winter. So I bought the 5 inch version for here in FL and it has not disappointed me - I love it!
Good Sander,Bad Dust Cannister
from Carrollton, Georgia
I've had this sander 10 months now and haven't used it heavily, but I have used enough to know what it does, It sands good, plenty of power. The variable speed feature is a waste for me. I always use full speed. It has two features I don't like. The first is the dust canister. Its just awkward to remove the cover to empty and to replace it. I would prefer a bag. The second is the on/off switch. Make it a little bigger and easier to use. Other than these two things, I like the sander.

I bought this a few months ago for use on a number of remodeling projects and it is terrific. It sands well and with an attached vacuum it is as close to dust free sanding that you can get. Perfect for remodeling without the mess.

Love this item!
from Indiana, United States
Was having issues with my regular palm sander that was taking me a half hour to do a 5x5 section on. Went and bought the orbital and was done with my whole project within 15 minutes. It wasn't loud and was easy to use. I am very happy about my purchase and will continue to go with Bosch products!
Very Nice ROS
from MO, United States
I've been using this ROS for about six months or so and it works perfectly. The hook and loop sanding disc fastening system is very secure. Depending on the sandpaper grit you can get a very aggressive cut or an extremely smooth finish with virtually no sanding marks. No need to apply a lot of pressure this ROS has plenty of power and with good discs sanding is a breeze. I hook it up to my shop vac and I could sand in the living room with no dust.

I have owned this sander for four years and can not due without it. The speed adjustment is very helpful when working with soft wood. This sander does a very good job no matter what project I am working on from thin grips for a "1911" to a custom book case. I am ready to buy a new one so that I can have one set up for rough sanding and the other for the finish work. It is very helpful in finishing my intricate scroll saw projects. Thanks Bosch for making such a good product.
