My only complaint is that the pads wear out a little prematurely and sometimes the sanding disc comes off before it`s usefullness is at an end. I sometimes am changing grits frequently though. Once you`ve taken and reapplied a pad a couple times, i won`t stay on well. That said, i purchase another of these sanders and each one is dedicated to a specific grit so that doesn`t happen. The sanding pads are relatively sheap to replace and easily found online. The old pads get used with the older discs for hand sanding as the grip is good enough still for that purpose. This is a good sander.
