5 out of 5 eggsWorks!

Pros: Good for dusting

Cons: Noisy?

Other Thoughts: If you're accustomed to buying can after can of compressed air, this should solve that problem. This has enough strength to clean out a pretty nasty computer or keyboard, and is freon free. It's about noisy like a small vacuum cleaner, no worse than what you would expect. Good purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsSaves you money.

Pros: I always purchased a dust sprayer. When i tried to search for alternatives i found this one. Because the duster can cost me a lot. But this one save you more money and does the job really well. Including some accessories that is really helpful getting the dust out ur PC components or parts.

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsMore powerful than I expected

Pros: Moves some air, long cord, removable filter

Cons: Got a little warm, see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised at how powerful this thing is. Goodbye compressed air, this thing should pay for itself in no time.
It did get a little warm during use, but I was outside in 90+ degree weather, so that may have made it worse. I don't think it is an issue just cleaning one PC at a time. That said, if you want to clean several in a row, might need a minute or two of cooldown between them.
Overall, very happy with it so far. I really like the cord length...I could plug it in next to my carport door and had plenty of cord to reach the porch.

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.
