This is my husbands favorite sander of all times. Great ergonomics leads to comfortable usage. I was surprised at the Hitachi's ease of use. Sandpaper loading is very well designed. All in all this appears to be an awesome product.

Hitachi SV12SG Final Thoughts
"It's a bargain."
When I stop pressing down, the sander turns off. It's paper clamping mechanisms have worked ok so far. Overall I'm really pleased with this little sander. Save me money, do the job well and look good. They called me thanking me for the lead!
