I have it, and it works perfectly. It doesn't get hot or anything. I've been using it monthly for almost a year without any problems.

I have one and the white metal body gets crazy hot after about 5 minutes of use, so I have to stop using it for a minute or two and let it cool off.

Definitely worth it for me, since my apartment is real dusty and I save a fortune on compressed air cans

Mine doesn't explode but it definitely gets hot and is also EXTREMELY loud, so don't even consider it if you have small children.

Only other alternative I looked at was this thing. but it turned out to be piss weak and needs to be charged.

Had one for about a year.

It heats up after about 3-4 mins, but that is about as long as it has ever taken me to blow out a PC.

Think you would be better off just buying a cheap air compressor and a blower attatchment personally. At least it can serve other purposes that way and not risk turning into a flame thrower. Then again air compressors are kinda loud as hell too.
Drugs are never the answer, unless the question is what isn't the answer.

I have one. Like other posters have said, it gets hot after 4-5 minutes of use. If you let it catch fire, you're really stupid.
So don't be stupid.

I have one, and others have said it gets pretty hot if you use it continuously. To avoid this I just spray in short bursts and the thing doesn't get hot.

It's a great product and saves you a lot of money on compressed air, especially since I clean out my tower 1/mo.
