This is an excellent product. Many previous review mentioned flaws in the early model that have been fixed. The band is the tougher black verison, NOT the grey version. The filters now filter down to 3 microns. The weight has been reduced. The one thing that needs to be mentioned... if you hate the smell of sawdust, this is NOT for you. The filters take care of sawdust, but do NOTHING to filter smell. A friend borrowed this thing, and he thought it was broken because he kept smelling sawdust. Drove him crazy. I don't mind the smell (especially when working with cedar), but because of the forced airflow, the smell is MUCH more noticeable than using a simple facemask.
This works great. I use it for wood turning and don’t even notice the dust when sanding.
other than battery charger very good
I contacted Trend in the UK via email. I got a response from the U.S. office a couple days later and they sent me a new headband free of charge. The new headband is black and not grey so I am assuming a different plastic. It still has the same weak pivot point hopefully with the new plastic it will be better. I do intend to reinforce this point as I do not tilt the unit. I was impressed by BB in that they did not delete my earlier more negative review as I have seen some other companies do.
I purchased this unit last fall and was very happy with it until the headband broke after less than a dozen uses. I had just charged the battery the third time so you can see how much it has been used. I am retired and this was an expensive investment for me and after a little more searching on the net it seems this is a common problem At $35 - $45 plus shipping depending on where you get the replacement it could be an extremely expensive investment it the replacements are no better than the original. Until Trend comes out with a better headband I can not recommend purchasing this product.
Biggest disadvantage is the weight but having worn a hard hat for years you don't notice it after a while. Sits on my head without moving around better than many face shields I have worn. It's really nice in a hot shop with the air blowing down over your face. The air movement keeps the face shield from fogging up and our face feels cooler so your whole body seems to feel cooler. One of those purchases that I'm glad I made.
