    METRO DataVac Electric Duster ED500 reviews

    DataVac Electric Duster Model ED500 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 211.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great service from B&H Photo, DataVac not so great 1 star is for product 5 starts is for B&H customer service Unfortunately DataVac which I got was defective (overheating after 5 sec action and also was leaking air between 2 metal plates connected by screws). I am not sure if this is problem with the design of this product or is it problem with quality control. I returned (RMA) to B&H. I have to stress that B&H has the excellent selection of products and customer service. I bought quite a few products in the past from B&H and never had a problem. This was the first RMA and B&H handled it very well. I can definitely say that I can recommend B&H to my friends and relatives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown Away! I sat on the fence for quite some time on this one. $ for a can of air??? Well, this is FAR from a can of air replacement! The power this little puppy puts out is nothing short of amazing! It will blow your hair back from over 15 feet away. It actually twists a bit in your hand when you turn it on from the torque! I've been in tech support for over 20 years and this is simply the only way to go. When I think of all of the cans of air that I have used I am ashamed - and to think I consider myself a friend of the earth.If you use canned air, don't hesitate to get this.Made in NY by a quality vacuum company; all metal, solid construction with cleanable filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Duster, made well I bought this mainly to use to clean my PC from dust.Unit is made well, solid construction, bit heavy or awkward compared to canned air. Definitely cost effective and no harmful chemicals to think about. Does a great job,i used to go through a can or more of canned air to clean my PC inside and still not able to do as good of a job as this does, plus if as most know with canned air, if don't hold it upright when spraying components,the liquids from contents of the can get on delicate electronics.With this device another reason make it more effective with attachments and more flexability to get every area. Well worth it !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Duster EVER! I work in a professional computer repair shop, and up until now, we've had to make due with an air compressor that was too small for some of the truly dirty machines. This wonderful device solves ALL of those problems. It runs instantly, barely heats up (unless you run it for 5 minutes straight, then it starts to get warm) and has more than enough power to blast dust, without harming the fans in the system. My boss was so impressed, he picked up 2 of them - one for the official store use, and one for his home. I'm thinking of buying another one to give to a friend who does computer repair on the side... BUY ONE! You will NOT regret it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a hand full of power When I got my electric duster in and opened the box to check it out, I accidentally pushed the off-on button to the on position. I plugged the unit in and thought that I would have to chase this thing down. What a hand full of power, with all of the adapters this thing will move some dirt and debris from what ever you want to blow off. I bought two of these and gave one to my son, he loves his also. This company has been around for a long time and they build quality products. One of the reviews that I read before I ordered my electric air said the unit makes a lot of noise. It does make noise, but it does blow what ever is in the way out. I love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than a can of Air! I love this product! its way better than a can of air. In about 6 months, this unit will pay off for itself. Its also more effective than a can of air. I'm a xerox tech, and one problem I face with my machines is that the paper my customers use leave a lot of dust beyond. The can of air would do OK but would sometimes cause more problems than needed. For example, if you don't hold it in a right angle, the liquid would get all over the item you are blasting, and the can would get really cold and stop working. You don't have that problem with this. Its so powerful and built well. It truly is the last can of air you will need. Here is a better review of this product. --------------------

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC BLOWER FOR MY D600 SENSOR When you've wipe something with a microfiber cloth and brush off any remaining dust, you still see them in a macro shot and spend countless time cloning them in PhotoShop. This product works best for the job. Saves me a lot of time in post editing. I've used this also with my desktops and notebooks. They're really powerful to blow that dust away, including tight spots. And for some that have doubted this product, I've used it also to clean my D600 sensors. Just make sure you use the micro tube that comes with it as it reduces the output by I think about a half. So far after about 1,000 clicks, it still works well...minus the dust specks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful to have arounf the house I am using the air blower to clean the keyboard, the screen, my car navigator screen, the area between the windshield and the dash board. Also to clean my electric shaver screen and cutter. It does the work well. You cannot use it for too long because it gets hot quickly and it is very noisy. Over all it is good and you save money over buying air cans. The small attachments are not really functional because they cannot go into the crevices and the air jet is the same because their is a hole in the adapter piece to prevent the jet from getting stronger. I am pleased with it and it does what is intended for.
