The Maxell Blast Away is a great item to have for a musician's "Gig-bag." I keep it next to the duct tape, flashlight and spare batteries. As a professional guitar player, I'm plagued by various conditions in many different venues. Amplifiers and PA equipment have intake or exhaust fans and the amount of dust accumulate very fast. Dust leads to heat build up, which can lead to overheating, which can cause gear to failsafe and turn off, or melt parts. The show can't go on with gear that doesn't work... The pressure is slightly higher than similar air cans I have used. It will remove 75%-85% of dust on fan blades from as far away 12cm-15cm. (5"-6") That is about average. Obviously the closer you get, the more it will disperse the dust... I've also used it on my computer guts and fans and it works as I expect. If it's been a while since your last computer cleaning, make sure to take it outside as the dust will fly everywhere. My only gripe is the straw. It occasionally shoots off. It could easily get lost, or end up inside the piece of gear you're cleaning. I know there isn't really a way to keep it attached short of using tape, or holding it as you use it.
