Neat, this was $9 more about a week ago on Home Depots "Deal of the Day".
Your essentially paying full price for the sander and $79 + tax for the 5AH battery, 2AH battery, standard charger, and a canvas carry bag.

I'm currently using this sander on a house for interior paint and drywall compound to prep for paint. I would highly recommend a shop vac and the attachment that comes with it for the drywall dust. The filter works well on paint dust but is overwhelmed by the smaller drywall dust and just lets it go everywhere. I bought this mainly for my wood projects and recommend it in a heartbeat.

I'm using mine with 5AH batteries mainly and it runs for at least 30 minutes while not being overly heavy or cumbersome. The 2AH will only run for about 10 minutes on high and is convenient for small stuff. I tried my 6AH battery and it needs the included extension, but it's not worth it. The battery is longer than the 5AH and puts your hand in a more awkward position (not to mention the overall weight sucks). I didn't try my 9 or 12AH batteries, that would just be stupid heavy and probably be enough to topple it on a flat surface. No noticeable power difference between batteries until you hit about 25% (there is a minor, but noticeable power dip when the battery is down to about 5 minutes left.

I have no need for more batteries or I would be all over this.
I would buy the sander at $100 again if my first one died (I like it's convenience).

I bought it last week. I called HD.com and they gave me the $9 price adjustment.

For a sander that is already tethered to a vacuum, wouldn't it just make sense to get a corded one?

As a landlord and owner of multiple homes, I've refurbed many houses/apartments and highly recommend a low dust drywall mud, applied sparingly, and hand sanding it - ideally with something to catch the dust underneath such as folded paper taped to the wall under the problem area in order to minimize the need for a vacuum.

these type sanders have super small orbits they are for finish sanding. Never found them of any use aside from final finish sanding.

Use it outdoors? Use it with the included dust collection box? Use it with a cordless vacuum?

I agree, this was just a family affair and speed was my priority. I use plenty of blower fans to circulate air from the room with a mask.
