the sander is powerful. it doesn't stall when you lean in on it, in a flat manner. fast and effective, it will get done what you need to get done. filter system works great so long as you keep up with it, as far as emptying it. my only con is that it will stall when taken up on edge, even slightly. many times i have to do this to achieve my sanding goals. i don't know if this is a 'workpiece safety feature', since going up on edge is usually a no-no for the inexperienced, but i am experienced and have used other brand sanders that just keep going in any situation. otherwise, a great buy.

A competent sander. Does not have great power, but it tracks well. Better for finish sanding rather than really grinding down major scratches or ridges.

Quiet, smooth, could use all day!
from Honolulu, HI, United States
This sander was not my first choice, but after using it, it would/ is my first choice.
Excellent dust control
from Pine Island, FL, United States
I've only completed one project at this time but the unit performed very well. So much improved over my "old" one that creates a dust storm. I am somewhat puzzled with the attachment provided with the sander. Neither end adapts to the sander outlet port. Perhaps I've misunderstood it's application.

from Indianapolis, IN, United States
My son borrowed my Bosch orbital sander and now it's never to be seen again, so I bought a new one and I am very pleased with it!
from Bakersfield, CA, United States
So far I'm very well pleased with the quietness and low vibration of this sander. I own almost all Bosch power tools, from drills to routers and have not been disappointed yet with the quality of each tool. I make fine decorative boxes and small furniture. The tools I've purchased from Bosch have not let me down yet as far as reliability and quality.
from Olympia, WA, United States
I bought this following a thorough review of orbital and sheet sanders. It was highly rated and had all the features that I needed such as low noise, and great dust control. It did lug down a bit with 60 and 80 grid sandpaper.
Bosch R0S20VSC - Worth every penny
I am impressed with this sander and recommend it. With 60 or 80 grit, this sander will tear through old finish, raised grain, scratches and cut marks... smoothly. Bosch has made a great sander better and when you add the case that has room for accessories and a bunch of discs, I think this is the best 5" variable speed random orbit sander in it's class... certainly the best deal.
I bought this sander based on reviews by users. This is a very good sander. Dust collection is great, low vibration so that my wife uses it without a complaint. Have been using it for almost a year and would highly recommend this model. Completely satisfied.
I've been using a 1/4 sheet finish sander from a different brand for 20 years on various projects and this orbital sander is such a pleasure to use. Its much quieter, less vibration, no need to punch holes in sandpaper to collect dust, and changing paper is extremely easy and fast. Used it to refinish butcherblock countertop and finish sanding hard wood floor steps. Dust collection is excellent but bag fills fast so for big jobs I used vacuum attatchment.
Great easy-to-use sander
from Gwinn, MI, United States
This sander worked great for the small woodworking projects I do around my home. It's lightweight, compact and doesn't vibrate as much as other palm sanders do.
