Lightweight but tough
I build furniture and cabinets to make retirement funs. I use the sander in conjunction with two Bosch RO sanders and the Festool is lighter, has better dust collection and gives a finer finish then either of the Bosch sanders I have. My wife has adopted it because it is light, maneuverable and yet extremely effective sander. I may buy the 6 in version to replace the Bosch sanders.

As much power as the Rotex sander but much lighter weight
I build and refinish furnature mostly. After using this sander to remove the old finish off of some french doors I was surprised at how fast this sander was able to achieve it. I also own a Rotex 125 and this sander seemed to remove the finish just as fast as my Rotex did on its direct drive setting. I was also surprised that the sander didn't bog down when I put a considerable amount of weight on it(I weigh 210). The anti vibration / stablization feature was great (you can read about it on Festools website).

I think that if you are considering the ETS EC sanders vs the Rotex sanders the main difference is that these weigh much less, are low profile, quieter, more manuverable and would create a lot less fatigue having to use it for several hours, especially in vertical or inverted positions. But...they don't have the edge guard feature or buffing capablities that the Rotex sanders do. If you could only aford one, I think it would depend on what you use these sanders most for. ETS/EC for basic and finish sanding vs the Rotex for multiple purpose sanding/buffing/heavy stock removal.

Conditions of 1 + 2 warranty

You are entitled to a free extended warranty (1 year + 2 years = 3 years) for your Festool power tool. Festool is responsible for all shipping costs during the first year of the warranty. During the second and third year of the warranty the customer is responsible for shipping the tool to Festool. Festool will pay for return shipping to the customer using UPS Ground Service. All warranty service is valid 3 years from the date of original purchase on your receipt or invoice.

No agent, representative, distributor, dealer, or employee of Festool has the authority to increase or otherwise change the obligations or limitations of this warranty.
