Wink Ed-500

I use this at my shop all the time. it has a few attachments that come with it, that can improve or adjust per use. The one thing that is better than a compressor is that it will not acquire moisture, or static.
The bad:
It is noisy!!!
The bottom filter needs constant cleaning, but is easy to remove and clean.
Bottom line, one of the better investments I have made.

I just bought one. Wow! This thing really Blows! in a good way.

there's a few limitations like the noise, but the savings on canned air will be considerable.
Can run it a little longer than canned air.

I do want one of these, they aren't that popular here in the uk though.
I must say though I dont really use canned air I find i can blow much harder myself

1200w leaf blower and pure bristle paintbrush

I have to hold the chassis down so it doesnt blow away.

Takes about 30 secs to clean a PC from start to finish

Only downside is it has to be done outside. But nahg, never used a vacuum as I like this method. If nothing else it gets me away from the desk for a few mins each day

I love my ED-500. Much better and cheaper than canned air, more portable than an air compressor, and more professional looking than a leaf blower. It is about as loud as a leaf blower, though.

Thumbs up Very Good

I used one of these to clean many computers while attending vocational school. I loved using it and it always served my purpose well. Its a great way to save money on compressed air and its worth the investment.

This particular model is actually a powerful blower, not vacuum, despite it's name.

We have 2 and use the tar out of them. We take dirty systems out back and they come back in (almost) clean as new!

I have one and it works great. It's built like a tank. Downsides are it's very loud and the outside metal case heats up real quick. Anyone thinking about it should get it. You won't regret it.
