I have drank the green Kool-Aid (a couple years ago is all) and find it a superior SYSTEM. I emphasize system because that is what you are buying into. At first I was very skeptical and thought it ludicrous to spend hundreds of dollars on a sander followed by more hundreds on a vacuum. I now have two sanders and the vacuum, plus a domino...and a track saw...oh and some of their clamps...ya I have been assimilated. I was introduced to them by a friend you does slab tables for a living. While I do find the actual sanding to be more enjoyable, it is not so much better that you couldn't achieve the same results with more inexpensive sanders. What I do find superior is the dust collection. I grew tired of everything in my purview being covered in sanding flour. It is all but completely a dust free experience now, the best being when used on a flat surface. You still get some escape when on edges and corners, but still better than any other sander I've used.
Live a life worth celebrating!
