5 out of 5 eggsBest thing ever

Pros: -Very sturdy American made product. Feels indestructible.
-I use it for everything: from dusting my computers and electronics, inside my car, furniture, windowsills, appliances, nooks and crannies in the house, you get the picture.
-More powerful than my leaf blower.

Cons: -None, really.

Other Thoughts: -It does get hot, but I've used it for several minutes without an issue.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product!

Pros: - Very powerful (better than canned air power)
- Great attachments
- Various uses
- Money saver!!

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: - I didnt want to write it as a con, but it will get warm during use. It's no different though than how a can of air will freeze up on you. Well, it is different because you can still use this as opposed to needing to wait for the canned air to unfreeze. I just used this to blow out both of my PC's. It did the job extremely well!! I would advise to always put your finger or pen in the fan blade of your pc so it doesnt spin while cleaning as it can ruin the fan bearing (I found out the hard way). This blower works very well and I know it will have plenty of other uses as well. Get one now and after just a few cleanings you will have already saved what you spend on a few cans of air!

5 out of 5 eggsCan't believe I haven't reviewed this thing yet.

Pros: -Works great
-I'll never have to buy a can of air again!

Cons: -loud (duh)

Other Thoughts: Has been working great for almost 2 years. Never again will I feel the pain of squeezing the last bit out of my last can of air. This device, though expensive initally, will pay for itself in time and deliver sweet salvation from having to buy CANNED AIR.

3 out of 5 eggsA little Pricyyyy but its well made very solid built. Buy it in Special !

Pros: Handle is very Sturdy i doubt you drop it
The flexible pipe did all the difference !

Cons: Was missing The air concentrator and a Detailing tool with the brush at the end .....
doubt i will ever use one of those since the brush is very too short i prefer to use a little non static computer brush to clean.

Other Thoughts: maybe pay more attention when packaging since there is a crack in on of the piece but china ....
-1 Egg for Price !!
-1 Egg for missing piece...

5 out of 5 eggsA hurricane in your hand

Pros: No dust can handle the force this thing gives

Long cord

Variety of attachments

Cons: I think this is what a hurricane sounds like. It's loud!!

Other Thoughts: Don't be confused. This is not a vacuum it's a blower.

The cord storing is a little wacky to take care of but manageable.

No more air cans for me. Save the money and get a DataVac

4 out of 5 eggsplug and dust, easy to use, satified

Pros: the cord length is optimum.
the blower power is much more than the caned airs had been using before
attachments help focus the pressure
the mouth of the blower has a spring loaded pin to lock onto the attachments

Cons: the nozzle+straw attachment loses too much power.
not all attachments have the holes punched in to latch on to the spring loaded pin.

Other Thoughts: read reviews that it gets hot- haven't experienced yet.it is loud no doubt but some people are just exaggerating. cleaned a PS3, PS4, portable heater and a PC. does what I expect it to do. contend.

4 out of 5 eggsPowerful

Pros: Extremely well built, powerful, good variety of attachments

Cons: No way to adjust airflow/power, heats up quite a bit after a few minutes

Other Thoughts: When I turned it on to test it blew my TV remote off my desk into the wall and knocked over a computer speaker, enough said.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect

Pros: Does the job very well,
Has long wire - but not too long,
Isn't too loud,
Great air pressure,
Removable / cleanable filter
All the attachments you could want.

Cons: Toggle switch (not a trigger)
Kinda big / unweildy

Other Thoughts: I use this for occasionally dusting out computers; that's it's sole purpose in life. However, it performs that purpose splendidly. Much better than battery powered canless air and canned air. I've heard it get's hot, but I haven't experienced that with mild usage. The only downsides, as listed above, are the size (it's a little bit larger than canned air and so is a little harder to maneuver) and the fact that the switch is a toggle switch, instead of a hold-it-to-activate style trigger, which I would prefer. Very minor and manageable downsides to an otherwise excellent product.
