So so far I can't say I've saved much money. Best option still seems to be grabbing an air compressor off harborfreight.

The majority of the time i use mine i use the high pressure attachment and i have never had any such problems. I clean out my huge case and have never had the vac overheat. It gets hot, but that is to be expected, there is a motor in there after all. I'd say it takes me a good 10-15 minutes of use (continuous) on the high pressure attachment to clean my HAF, and while the unit gets hot, it isn't so hot that i can't hold it at the hottest part.

True, it goes down to £55 if I order from amazon.com with the £10 postage and £10 import charge. Can take 20 days to deliver though redface.gif Might be worth a shot

However, I did just find this canned air £1 each LOL. Bought 15, I'll keep 5 and put the rest on ebay, considering they sell for about £8 a can over here

A can of air is a paltry weak thing compared to the power of the Force DataVac 500.

Mine gets too hot to hold at the hottest part with that attachment in less than a minute. I can clean the mesh on the top of my case then it's done. Canned air gives me the same air pick like pressure for maybe twice as long, but then get's too cold to hold. It's pretty ridiculous.

I've been wanting to get one of these since the cans of compressed air get expensive after awhile. However, I cannot find these for a decent price in Canada. I found them on amazon.ca for 78$. Does anyone know a place that sells these things for much cheaper?

Available at Amazon.com in the USA. What would it cost to ship to Canada or Deutschland?
