The only regret I have with my DataVac is that I didn't buy it sooner.
Understandable, but I have yet to use a can of compressed air in my PC. I clean filters under running water and if there is too much dust I have a small compressor very similar to the one pictured below, it is only maybe 30-40cm long and fairly quiet
But one day I might get the DataVac for sure
LOL! I also have a small compressor but it's a pain in the back to lug around (so is my computer). I also deplete the tank pretty quickly when blowing off dust with it. I have to stop frequnetly to let it build up pressure. The DataVac is far more portable and puts out a constant, high volume stream of air that doesn't deplete. I even use the DataVac for blowing sanding dust off projects and blowing the dust from behind my desk (much easier than trying to move the desk and crawling behind it to sweep out the dust from amongst the cable jungle. I clean my computer in place to spare my back (I'm old and handicapped). By cleaning it frequently, I don't blow much dust into the room. I generally need to dust the room before cleaning out the computer so I'm not creating extra work for myself. Same for when I blow the dust from behind my desk. I wait until I need to dust my room anyway and will be leaving the house for a while. I just blow out the dust, leave the house to run errands or whatever, then, by the time I get back home, the blown dust has settled out where I can easily get to it. Again, since the room needed dusting anyway (I live in a desert so it's very dusty where I live), it's not any extra work for me.
