5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: The DataVac works great. One of the best I have found. Small, easy to store, but has tons of power for blowing out machines. Super long cord to clean away from other machines or even outside.

Cons: None.

2 out of 5 eggsHas some issues

Pros: It does actually work somewhat. I think it was only about 60 bucks.

Cons: Leaks around the seal where the screws located at about midway down -- where the top fits onto the bottom of the unit. Big time leak. It does work, but it has a major leak in whatever the seal is where the top fits on the bottom. This leak was apparent on the first use -- it did not come later. The unit was not dropped by me or damaged in shipment.

Other Thoughts: Thinking I will just take the screws out where the top fits to the base and see what's up with the seal. Not worth sending it back. Not sure if I will find a big O ring that's pinched or some sort of gasket that's failed. I use several of these at work that are the next model up and this one "looks" the same, but has a different model number. It appears to me that this company just discounts the price and sells cheaper the units that don't have a good seal and gives them a different model number.

4 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: You could blow your driveway with this. Great for industrial cleaning or really dirty computers.

Cons: Sounds like a jet engine. No regulator to adjust airflow - it just blows with gale force winds. Lack of quality control on the plastic nozzles. Some of the plastic adapters did not have their holes punched.

Other Thoughts: Use it to blow out dirt from your garage or other light work if you don't have an air compressor.

5 out of 5 eggsIf you're looking at this just buy it.

Pros: Like 100x more powerful than canned air.
Doesn't freeze your hand off.
Costs 60 bucks which is like five packs of canned air.
Absolutely blasts the dust off of your components.

Cons: It is loud... that's about it.

Other Thoughts: Let me say that I have never written a review on a product before. I never thought that it was really worth my time. This product is a great investment. You are going to get your money back not buying canned air anyway. Just buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsWORKS GREAT!!!

Pros: This is a POWERFUL little air duster/blower.
About same height as regular can of compressed air, but about 2x the diameter.
This thing MOVES the air. Blows at least 3x-5x the volume of air that a regular can does.
VERY High Quality. MADE IN USE.
Quite a few nozzles/adapters come with it.
Removeable/washable/reuseable air filter in bottom.
POWERFUL 120Volt 4AMP Motor in it. As powerful as most small vacuums.

Cons: It is a bit LOUD. About the same as a vacuum cleaner.

Other Thoughts: This is DEFINITELY worth the money.
I bought it as a replacement for the 5$-8$ 'cans of air'. It will pay for itself in very short order.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth every penny

Pros: Recently upgraded my 5 year old computer, "sadly the hamsters powering it died" So i decided to give old betsy a thorough cleaning before I used her as a server.
I had one can of air left and figured i could use it up before I plugged the duster in, after about 20 mins of waiting for the can to get warm again I gave up and plugged in the polished white dream machine. After finding what I thought was a good attachment I click it on and Boom the computer explode like a bomb in the middle of the desert. It felt like i just walked 20 miles through a dust storm in Iraq.
After I opened the garage door and let it air out "Sorry EPA" I could see again. What an amazing sight it was like i just build the computer not a spec of dust in there. Now i sit here completely satisfied at my purchase in an american made product, I hope you read this and take the trip down satisfied lane as well.

Cons: Looking back at my first dusting with this, I should have invested in some dust masks.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy NOW!

Pros: This thing can move air. Lots of it. Saves money over time. And keeps various things dust free.... Not just my electronics.

Cons: Zero.

Other Thoughts: This thing is also really good at blowing up air mattresses. My air mattress pump died when we had guest staying over. I plugged this thing in and it filled it 10x as fast.

Also.. Be warned. Take computers outside when using this. I "clean" mine out once a month with canned air... So figured it wouldn't be too bad.. Wrong. This left a cloud of dust in my office for about 15-20 minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsPaid for itself many times over

Pros: Nothing new to add to existing reviews. It works, it works well. And with canned air costing $5-6 a shot, it has paid for itself multiple times over in just 18 months.

Cons: As many have already noted, it's LOUD. I wear ear protection.
