5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Super!!!

No more Air Can EVER!!

i did buy so many air compress can that make a poor
JOB"

With this never buy again compress can air,
it blow way more and wih all the fittings you cant go wrong.

I build and repair computer since over 15 years, i spend so much on can air that last for one computer and not same job, trust me ! i make the test i clean a dusty computer antec 12 hundred case with can air, all the can,
after i try this one on the same computer, was like it was never dusted all blue led came alive again!!!

Its not a buy its an investissemen A Must!

Cons: abit loud, like a vaccum but we can live with it it is not that worst.

Other Thoughts: IF you computer is very dirty don't blow this Inside the house, Take it outside cause it really move alot of dust.

For regular maitenance you can blow Inside the house no problem. I use it in my Gaming Computer once a month it take 1 min and its like brand new, the led blow bright again.

5 out of 5 eggsData Vac is Great

Pros: My new favorite thing. I live in a region with bentonite dust, and my dog has a job, which is to shed hair as much as she can every day. The dust and the hair grows like weeds in my keyboard and case. The vac took care of it with ease. I took a few keys out of my keyboard and blew all the hair to the open area for easy cleaning. I couldn't clean my keyboard like this with a can of air.

I did do research about this vac before I bought it, looking at videos and reading user reviews. Every reviewer said it is noisey, which is true, but that's to be expected because of it's compact size. The vac's size would have to be increased substantially to reduce the noise of the unit. If you were using it on an assembly line blowing out computers it could get annoying, but your only cleaning one computer at a time, and it's not THAT noisey. I am totally happy with this vac, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to keep their computer equipment dust free.

Cons: If this unit had cost around $35-40 it would have been a super buy. But this unit doesn't seem to go on sale.

Other Thoughts: The unit has a retractable button on top which must be pressed down to keep the blower nozzle in place. Some may have problems with this; in one video I saw the guy said he struggled with it for a while. Just angle the nozzle over the button, press it down and slide the blower nozzle onto the unit.

5 out of 5 eggsDataVac

Pros: I just got this product so I can't say how long the motor will last, but after using this I really wanted to write a review before I forgot.

-Sturdy construction. This thing is built like a tank! It's perfect for throwing into a tool box with other tools without worrying.

-Long power cord. Great for when you can't get a nearby outlet and don't want to use an extension cord. (12 feet)

-Lots of accessories that attach firmly. My favorite one is the "bendy straw" one. One problem I always had with canned air is the tiny straw would pop off if it was even slightly nudged by a component inside the computer. The "bendy straw" in this kit is also very flexible, compared to the stiff ones found in canned air.

-Plastic Handle. Even though the unit does get pretty hot, the plastic handle stays cool to the touch so it is never uncomfortable to hold. Again, coming from using canned air that would freeze in my hand while using it, this is a very welcome feature.

-Long duration of air pressure. I can keep this thing running without having to worry about running out of air like I do in a can.

-Made in the USA. For some people it might not matter, but it's a pro for me.

Cons: -Heat. It does get hot after a while, but it takes longer for this thing to get hot than it did for a can of air to get freezing cold.

-Loud, but that is to be expected. I wouldn't use it while people are trying to use the phone or anything.

-Nothing to keep the cord wrapped up. The handle is curved enough so that the long power cord can't wrap around it. It's not a big deal, but you'll want to use something like a velcro tie-wrap.

Other Thoughts: It worked great. I was able to get it into a very small micro-ATX case that is very difficult to clean due to the tightly packed components and sharp angles that canned air cannot get to.

I know they advertise that you will have a more "green" workplace because you don't have to throw away canned air, but another thing to consider is that compressed air is considered hazardous material by some places. You can leave this in a room where people are welding without any issues, put it on your carry-on on a plane without the TSA bugging you, etc...
