There are almost 100 buyer reviews on this one and it has a high overall average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, so it is most certainly worth looking at, if you are in the market for a high quality random orbital sander.

Who Would Buy This 3727 Model?
If you are someone looking for a good all round random orbital sander, then this would be a very astute purchase. This one works really well across the whole range of both sanding and polishing tasks. It can remove stock quickly and can also be used for those finer finishes.
We all know that sanding is a pretty boring task. That said it has to be done and this one takes most of the pain out of finishing the job. One word of recommendation is to make sure it is attached to a vacuum removal system. That applies to any sander really, but as this one removes stock quickly, then it is seven more important.
Those of you who use a sander mainly for working on furniture, will appreciate that a 6″ pad size will make you life a lot easier. The bigger pad size helps keep the sander flat. You will pay a little extra for the 6″, but for furniture makers, this is a good investment.
If you have worked in body shops then having the hook and loop sanding disks is just a great deal better than the mess of using spray adhesives or glues. The hook and loop is mess free and super simple to use.
Many furniture makers or carpenters will already have a vacuum system installed. This tool is easy to hook up to a 1 1/4 hose with the appropriate Bosch adapter. The self-contained filter comes right off to expose the suction port for the vacuum system.
Summary & Verdict
There is a lot to like about this model from Bosch. Overall it does a very good job on all types of sanding. Like any type of sanding there is a technique to it, but once you master that, then this model will make the tasks pretty standard for most people.
Bosch are a well known brand and they do make very good power tools. We would recommend this one without any hesitation as we found it worked well. I have used this one myself on a few jobs as a friend of mine owns this one. He is a bit of a Bosch fanatic, but that aside, when I used it, the end result was very good indeed.
