People complaining about it burning out, of course it will if you apply too much pressure, particularly uneven pressure. Use it properly and it will last for years.
Bought two years ago and both burnt out with 20 minutes each, buy Bosch instead
I used to have one of these. Good price at £20 but the sander itself is much less useful that you'd think it would be. Alot of the weight is at the top of the device, the shape of it doesn't make it easy to grip / manoeuver for detail work, you burn through key spots on the tip of the glasspaper almost immediately etc. Nice idea in theory but the execution is lacking.
Great! After it breaks, I can eat it :-)
I had one, didn't last long motor burnt out, ok for small areas over short time but is made of chocolate..
