I found these to be superior to the Diablo ones I was using before for these reasons: 1) The holes fit my Makita sander much better, resulting in more effective dust collection 2) The velcro grips the sander better 3) The pads last longer 4) The price is better
I took a chance on purchasing this cheaper sandpaper because of the bulk quantity, but I'm pleasantly satisfied. To give you an idea of how they hold up, I loaded my 5" random orbital sander with a new 80 grit pad and sanded the edge of 150 linear feet of 3/4 MDF and about 50 linear feet of poplar to remove table saw marks for a box beam ceiling project before moving on to finer grit passes. The paper did not clog once, and the pad still has life to it.
I purchased 120, 220 and 320 grits. All sand very nicely and last for long. I use the lower grits to sand hard and soft wood, wood filler and bondo and they do a perfect job. Wood filler and bondo clog them though. I use the 320 to sand between finish coats on low speed. Make sure not to clog the sand paper to avoid swirl marks. After using Mirka in the past, I would say they're very comparable with a much lower price tag.
