My mistake, i thought the price was inclusive of VAT - i guess there's no deal after all. Still, a great purchase nonetheless, if a bit pricey.

Yeah, it'll mean I won't have to completely pull my computer apart to clean it, just take it outside and give it a blast every 2-4 weeks.

I found out about this thing just a few weeks ago and snap bought it from amazon. Obviously I didn't realize it's not gonna be compatible in my country redface.gifredface.gifredface.gif I would really appreciate someone helping me find a suitable transformer to make my ed500 work without burning it or my whole apartment down rolleyes.gif As much as I understand from searching on google, I need a step down transformer, is this correct? What wattage is necessary for the transformer if ed500 is 500W? Would be great if someone who is knowledgeable in these things or maybe someone who has been in the same spot as me would tell me what transformer to buy. Thanks a lot!

It appears they have a 220v version http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/747381-REG/METRO_DataVac_ED_500_220V_DataVac_Electric_Duster_500.html, maybe a cleaner option for you?

that's a no-go, it's a US shop and their shipping costs like twice as much as amazon's so getting a transformer would be cheaper

I just linked that to show it being available, maybe a local shop would have the 220v? I know Metro Vac seems like a smaller US based company, I've never heard of them prior to finding out about the ED500.

Just used mine again today, this thing is like a BFG 9000 to dust!

Guys, I'm needing lots of help to seeing the benefit's of owning one of these over having a compressor with a high pressure regulated nozzle. Since I already take the computer out to the garage to clean it and my compressor is already hooked up there as well, I see that being the much better option...unless I am completely missing something?

Probably not, most people don't have access to a compressor or the space for one, but is there a condensation problem with a compressor? You wouldn't want to shoot any moisture into your PC. The ED500 just makes a great replacement for people who use canned air.

Yea, if it's anything like the air lines that run where I work, they have minute bits of oil/water/etc. in there. Most household compressors don't filter all that stuff completely.

One of my first jobs was working in my father's very small factory. He had a big compressor. When we opened up in the morning it was my task to open the valve at the bottom of the tank and let out the oil and water that had precipitated overnight and drifted to the bottom. The resulting compressed air was thus dryer and less oily.
