    Rated 4 out of 5★ by 30reviewers.
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by the price was right but,sometimes it will hold the sheet of paper,if you dont have them cut just rightthey come off.what im really disappointed in is the dust catcher,that is why i bought it so i wouldnt have a great big mess.Wrong! It blows dust everywhere. I put a sandwich baggy over the catcher andthat help some. 10/17/2011
    Rated 2 out of 5★ by 1 Sheet of sandpaper in the package! I went to the store and made my purchase after reading the product description on line. I returned home opened the package only to find just one sheet of sandpaper in the box. Had I known this at the store I would have bought some more sandpaper. Returning to the store for more paper was a royal pain in the donkey. 02/04/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Just What I Wanted This little sander works perfect for my needs. If I had to list one fault, the dust bag doesn't stay on well and it will only work if you find the sandpaper designed for this sander with the holes in it, which I could not find. But, since I was outside, the dust did not bother me and the sander worked great. 12/07/2012
    Rated 3 out of 5 Light-medium projects for the weekend DIY'er I have owned these model Black and Decker Sanders for the past 6 years and they seem to have a three year life span for me. Every three years I am back at Wal-mart buying another. I had always returned to buy a new one because 1.) the price is great 2.) It fits the hand very comfortably 3.) It works well.This sander is 1/2 the price of the Dewalt, Milwaukee and other sanders. The sander is not quiet and I usually wore foam ear plugs while using it. The sander is also "messy," it definitely blows sanding dust around, with or without the bag. Outdoor or garage use duty only. 1/4 sheet sanders are the best sanders for small jobs in my opinion because you don't need to buy more expensive hook and loop or sticky sand paper-which saves you money! Not sure how powerful the motor is but as long as I use the correct grit paper the little sander did just fine.I believe what kills these sanders is excessive downward pressure or prolonged side loading from angling the sander or only using a corner of it. 05/15/2014
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Its not horrible. It is small and easy to maneuver, it vibrates so vigorously that it makes your hand go numb rather quickly though. lol. This is good for very small jobs unless you enjoy changing paper every 3-5 minutes. Seriously, these tiny pads are gone in an instant! The dust bag is useless, absolutely useless! I sanded a table top in my kitchen, when I was finished I took the bag off to empty it and there was nothing in it! I mean NOTHING! Not even slightly dusty. This is for outdoor use only without question. 03/23/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Just right for the project This is a must have if you plan on doing small jobs around the house hold and the applications of use are just enough to get the job done, all you need to know is what sand paper to use and apply weather it's steel or wood etc. the results are based on how well you follow instructions 03/27/2014
    Rated 2 out of 5★ by Okay for light jobs I should have taken the advice of other reviewers and not purchased it. Its is extremely messy. I would guess that only 70% of the dust actually makes it into the collection bag. Also a moderate amount of pressure is needed even though the directions warn against it. If you are in a hurry--spend the extra money on a better quality sander. 11/08/2012
