Good for detail work
This is really a great sander for smaller workpieces and detail sanding. The small circular pad easily gets into most areas and Delta pad really gets you into just about anywhere else. Has a great sanding action but finding the point of perfect balance between the surface and sanding pad can be a little frustrating. Unlike a larger sander that has much more area to deal with, the small pad can be a bit finicky until you get the hand of it, but if you need to do detail sanding - especially where an orbital motion would be advantageous - this sander is really the ticket.

My Favorite Tool in my Shop!
What can I say truly the best and most versatile sander on the market! Now you look at a project and say maybe I can but I sure know that FESTOOL can. Truly remarkable!

Great sander that you can use all day!
I have used this to strip several coats of paint or just knock down to repaint works great! Buffed out my boat like a champ! You just have to figure out the speed to use and the different settings at first then you are off tothe races! Cut my time by 80% compared to other "no-brand no power" sanders. I have small hands so it was really nice to have a tool I could hang onto and work all day.

Goes with me everywhere
This one goes with me everywhere, and it has got me out of quite a few jams due to it's power and dust collection. The rough mode can strip paint off a sticking door with no cleanup in minutes, and the fine mode is good enough for stain grade cabinet finishing. I don't use the delta pad much, but it can get into a tight corner as well as any other. Dust collection is key, no cleanup at the end of the day means you can go home sooner, it's a no brainer!

Solid sander, great versatility
This is a very good sander to have in the arsenal. The ability to go from a gear driven, to random orbit, to delta makes my life so much easier when doing custom built ins on a job site.

Not what I would expect from festool
I own a 125 sander, and needed a smaller detail sander for a project. The packaging is great, room for the sander and sand paper in the systainer. we were sanding down a log cabin to restore it and I bought this for the smaller profile and triangle attachment. I own the 125 and use it all the time and it is by far the best 5" RO I have ever used. The rotex 90 was very difficult to control, It jumped around everywhere and took two hands to keep it on the surface. This was at the less aggressive of the two orbital options. When I set it on the more aggressive option, it jumped all over the place. The triangle attachment was a nice option, but was still very loud and the pad did jump occasionally. It did the job that I needed it to, but when given the option between this and a dewalt RO sander, my guys kept picking up the dewalt, and only used this when they absolutely had to.

Nice Sander
The Rotex RO 90 sander was my latest festool purchase ( I actually got it for Fathers Day). When I first demonstrated this I thought it was something I could not live without. I will say its a nice sander, works great fro getting in tight places but not worth the money.
