I spent many days contemplating buying this Multi-x. I really really wanted the Fein version, but I just couldn't justify paying double. I had used a Fein a few years before and was in awe after using it. So I bought this Bosch version and I would say it's great. It worked relentlessly on a major project I was doing, never gave out or got hot or anything like that. It's very powerful. Its everything I expect a Bosch to be. Not too noisy either.
The "but" in my review is in regards to the blades. The scraper blade was my favorite, saved me hours of work, it worked perfect, however, the cutting blades were not as durable as I'd hoped as the teeth broke easily, but maybe I was a little too hard on it, I did use brute force on frustrating tasks. The blades are not cheap to replace. I did not use any of the sanding pads, so I can't say anything for them.
Great tool, got the job done, and will do many more jobs I have no doubt. Do I wish I would have bought the Fein? Yes. Why? It's a little more refined. The Bosch is like a Porsche, the Fein is like a Bentley.
