The Metro Datavac ESD Safe Electric Duster - Model ED-500ESD is $92.01 shipped and sold by Amazon.com, and is a better value for your money in every way. It's ESD safe, so it's $17.98 cheaper than the ESD version of this one. Not to mention it doesn't have an internal non-replaceable battery in it, so it's not going to croak on you in a year or two if you use it often (as you should). It's also a fairly well known and trusted brand for electronics cleaning. If you're serious about buying this kind of product, do yourself a favor and get the ESD Datavac.

I was going to post what you did, thanks for your time saving post. I've had the product listed here and the Metro and the Metro is better in every single way.
Is it possible to use this for cleaning not only keyboards but also, cleaning the inside of a computer?

Thanks mane

np bruh
I've never purchased something like this before, but it looks like DataVac is less expensive and has a better reputation. What's the point of this?

There really isn't a point to this since it uses an internal, non-replaceable battery in it and is the same price as the high-tier ESD safe DataVac. The Metro Datavac ESD Safe Electric Duster - Model ED-500ESD is $92.01 shipped and sold by Amazon.com, and is a better value for your money in every way.
This item is horrible. My company got them to replace canned air (I'm a service technician for a global IT and Services company) and they just don't work. They're super loud, and you can literally breathe harder than the small puff of air that comes out. We switched to another brand that works better, the DataVac ED500. It's a few bucks cheaper and has to be plugged into a wall outlet, but it works tons better. It's not as sleek and stylish, but it'll do the job.

datavacs blow (dust into low earth orbit)

I get what you're saying, but no attachments are included apart from the "straws" at Amazon.
Doesn't include the EU plug? :/
I don't understand why massdrop keeps selling these

Because they trust massdrop

Never trust anyone who wants your money. The only reason these Hurricane units are here is because retailers wont sell then haha. Well in Australia anyway.

I have this, been using it for last 6 months, it's fantastic. I've only used canned-air before, and I can never go back.

i got mine about 8 months ago, i LOVE IT, i wish i bought it years before. powerful, and AC powered, with tons of attachments. i reccomment xpower airrow (stupid name i know) to any and everyone
The battery has already failed and it bulged so badly that it pushed the casing open. Very dangerous. It also doesn't push a lot of air. Great for sawdust. Not so great for actual dust. I even got the upgraded version.
This thing is a piece of garbage. The instructions had the gall to say it would get more powerful over time. That's not how engines or motors work.

Maybe its battery break in
Premature_Congratulations
I think u mean break out. Because the damn thing expands for half the units. What great quality control where half the batteries burst after fucking normal use. A+ product there guys.
Super disappointed. This thing sucks. It's very loud and doesn't push a lot of air. I guess it's cheaper than buying canned air for years...
I just got mine in, this product sucks! It looks badass, sounds badass.... but I could basically whisper stronger than this thing blows :/
Very weak....
For anyone in the latest drop, looks like shipping labels were just created. Got a UPS Mychoice notification.
Why hasn't massdrop actually sold a good blower like the DataVac yet?
"o2 hurricane canless air system" on Amazon shows the blue "special edition" for $89.95 w/ prime shipping.
Not trying to shill for anyone, but just to save people money and discourage weak products here on Massdrop: the XPOWER blower is cheaper and more powerful than Hurricane products: http://a.co/6j1vGlX

I saw a review for this on YouTube before I bought my Hurricane. It looks like a great product if you don't need it to be cordless.
i got mine about 8 months ago, i LOVE IT, i wish i bought it years before. very powerful, the torque you get starting it while holding it in your hand is remarkable. has 2 speeds, and AC powered, with tons of attachments. instead this hurricane thing comes with a battery. no thanks. i recommend xpower airrow (stupid name i know) to any and everyone. only a couple weeks ago i brought it with me to my parents place and blew the garage out of dust etc. my computer is in an old HAF 932 case, so it get LOTS of dust, np, once a month or so i blast it out with the airrow.
From what I have seen, these are garbage. The Metro datavac is far superior.

We need compressed air in the field and cans were getting too expensive so now we use the Metro Datavac's from B&H. We tried the Hurricanes briefly but they compete with a nice breeze, not compressed air. They are garbage which is why half the retailers in Aus have ditched them now with their "claims". Look up reviews for the Metro Datavac if you need convincing, only downside is mains powered but still renewable. One retailed changed just based on my recommendation, other upside is the Datavac is ESD safe as it is grounded through the mains.
If you watch reviews of this product online (YT) and you'll see that it really doesn't blow as hard as compressed air. Compare that to reviews online (YT) that shows the Metro Datavac perform better. Lastly, the datavac has a 500w motor this does not.
These things are terrific for Fidget Spinners.

I'm buying one just for this
Been using mine for about a week now, the orange model (not the ESD or X3). As @gak1234 said, you can get a compressor for the same price. I bought a Porter-Cable 6gal pancake compressor for under $90, and with a cheap accessory kit (easily <$15), you can get a LOT more pressure in a smaller (more focused) area. I doubt the feet-per-minute is as high, but the pounds-per-square-inch is much higher. However, as loud at the Hurricane is, my compressor is louder. And a lot heavier, as well. Both my compressor and gak1234's weigh about 30lbs. When I use my Hurricane at the office, I only annoy my coworkers within about 20 feet, and it's ready to go instantly. No time building pressure, no draining condensate, and no moisture/oil trap to buy and maintain.
If you can only afford one ~$100 air blowing tool, you'll get a lot more versatility out of a shop vac or compressor. However, if you don't need that versatility, or value portability more, the Hurricane definitely has its place.
For those saying the price is better on Amazon that is for the O2 version for x3 version Amazon sells it for $150 it cost me $140 here on Amazon and if they reach max buyers it will be cheaper.
I purchased the X3 directly from the company about 2 years ago and it is great. It's a bit pricey but no more canned air running out when you need it and with the attachments it was just what I need for cleaning out pc's. If the drop gets to max commits, buying the X3 is a bargain, faster than the O2 model, comes with attachments which are extra, and the X3 has a lifetime warranty whereas the O2 is only 1 year. If I didn't already own one, I'd buy this as the price is really good.
This is $95 w/ same day delivery on Amazon Prime. What am I missing here???

The x3 on Amazon is $150
Guys, save your money. I've found a budget method that matches the strength of the Hurricane Canless Air System. Sure, it's not free. But, if you're clever you could get it for pennies. All you need to do is go to a fast food place nearest your house. Obtain a straw. Once you have a straw. Practice blowing through it. Not only is it an infinite source of air. But, it's actually stronger and more effective at clearing debris.

I'm gonna blow some moisture onto your face.
alex- it's not like canned air doesn't throw moisture if you have it at anything less than the right angle. lol.... :sigh:
Love Massdrop but the Metro Datavac is 6998 on the ‘Zon atm. In stock 01/03.
Seems to me this unit would make a better tiny vacuum then a tiny blower. Just a thought.
noooooooooo, it's back :(
These "Hurricane" things are a joke - they should be called "Gentle Sea-breeze" instead. I can move more dust with my lungs. I'd rather just have a portable compressor - far more useful tool than a silly overpriced little fan.

I bought that compressor 3 months ago, and after one initial problem fixed by the vendor, I can compress as much air as I want, as often as I want, with far more pressure and volume than canned air or a puny electric breeze.
It is $89.95 on amazon
Hi, Europe buyer here. Ordered one, shipping was relatively fast, I got letter from customs I should come pick up the package and bring the receipt. I thought the usual stuff, I come, pay taxes and off I go to blow my keyboard away.
But no. The CE conformity certificate is not included. Also there are no CE markings on the device itself. Power brick is not for German market.
I had the option to decline the package and return it straight away, but I opted for official customs technical inspection to maybe get the consent for import.
It's really hilarious that there is an included sheet of paper where it states the device should operate properly and was thoroughly checked, with CE stamp on it. If the product fails the technical inspection I hope to get my money back. And as heads-up, that paper with is a direct violation of the EU laws and regulations.
If you have the real CE conformity certificate, please contact me.
I am waiting for customs inspection to finish. Will be reporting back.
Hope others don't have much trouble with the product.

Hi all, all the best in 2018!
Unfortunately, the device failed the CE technical inspection.
Massdrop support offered full refund after they get the information about shipping. I hope the customs took care of that, as I did not even get to touch the device itself.
As of last week, I requested re-export back to USA.
So, EU buyers, beware. The paper with CE marking on it is not a CE declaration of conformity.
I will report back later on, hopefully after I get my money back.

As of Monday, Massdrop provided me with a refund directly back to my source of payment. I will be careful in the future when buying electronic devices.
Is this really good for cleaning keyboards and camera mirrors?

Thanks man. Any suggestions on a cordless handheld heat gun that's not going to cost a kidney?
