Mine arrived today. It is an outstanding piece of kit. Soft start and variable speed. The head acts as a dust seal and the dust is sucked out without the use of a separate vacuum cleaner so not as clumsy as larger machines. I had previously used a more sophisticated machine which was more expensive but that was too heavy and caused a rotor cuff injury that took a while to recover from. I don't think there is danger of that with this. Sanding disks are none standard but when I Googled 180mm sanding discs, they seem to be easily available. You only need one of these if you start with something rough or you are looking to make a good filling job perfect but at this price, it's worth throwing to the back of the shed until you need it. The free delivery also means I don't have to go into Aldi which is a bonus. This must be the cheapest dry wall sander I've seen but add the lack of the need for a vacuum cleaner together with the portability of the thing, it seems ideal for occasional DIY use.

We've just bought a house and stripped wallpaper off to find intact but patchy plaster parts are bare but others have old yellow emulsion one.

Would this be ideal for sanding back to bare plaster to paint?
It really depends on several factors which includes the type of paint, its soundness and the type of plaster.

If the paint is soft, it will clog the machine, if the paint is harder than the plaster and firmly adhered, it will damage the plaster.

One effective way of removing old emulsion is to use a steam stripper and sharp scraper which lifts the paint of. It's slow going but saves the damage of scraping or sanding. I used that process where the paint was hard but the plaster was soft.

I'd still say the drywall sander is worth having for sanding any uneven plaster or repairs.
