I have seen that thing on Amazon one time and I actually though about buying it but didn't really know if it was going to be worth it. After this review and multiple others I have read, I might just finally get this. Plus, I really need it, my temps are extremely higher than when I first built this rig and I know its because of all the dust. I used to dust regularly but the cans of air started costing alot of money and I have 2 computers that require dusting. Hopefully this will not let me down!

A little more cost effective if you need an air compressor anyways. But this is more portable.

Ok guys, i got mine in the mail from performancepcs and i have to say, its simply awesome! I pummeled right on through 4 heavily saturated pcs in short order. I love the fact that its portable vs my compressor. Its loud like a hairdryer but it blows some serious air. 50$ well spent!

Normally I don't like to bump any old thread unless it's worth bumping but I'd just received this DataVac Electric Duster today and man, it does a really good job of blowing out all the dust and stuff.

Normally it would take me somewhere between 15 - 20 minutes to get the case really clean and free of dust using canned air but with the DataVac, it took me only 5 min max.

If you're still using those canned air, go out and buy one of these now. It'll save you a ton of money in the long run.



One thing though, it's loud!

Wow, I must have missed an email notification a few months ago. Amazing this thread is still going

As for the USB thing I saw posted, this is a 500w blower. The max wattage of a USB port is 2.5w (and quite a few computers can't reach that high; that's why most external drives come with DC adapters or a Y cable). Meaning this thing is roughly 200 times more powerful then puny USB-powered blowers\\vacuums.

I checked with an ampmeter, and it pulls 510w spinup\\430w steady. You'd need a horribly expensive box of LiPos to power it by battery, or a pretty large pack of IMRs to run it for even a few minutes. It blows away any battery\\USB powered blower out there, probably by an order of magnitude or two for most.

The WD-40 blower mentioned by Mjolnir is 45 watts, or roughly 1/10th as powerful as the Metrovac - it's not going to replace compressed air for blasting out tougher baked-on dust (the metrovac, at least in my opinon, is considerably more powerful then compressed air). Given the 5 year warranty and amazingly cheap cost of the Metrovac (roughly the same as the $45 non-woot WD-40 blower), it seems like the best deal, though the WD-40's battery could make it handier.

Hmmmm? I wonder what it could be?


Yay! It is here!


All the lil' bits and pieces in the box.


I am really digging this thing. It makes a great hand dryer, hair dryer, and wet dog dryer as well as just blowing generally everything out of the way. DataVac FTW!
