Both involve using moving air to remove dust and other debris- so why the stigma around using a vacuum cleaner nozzle?
In both cases you are just moving air (negative vs positive pressure), so the static risk should be the same, no?
Also, compressed air causes a massive temperature drop and can cause a small amount of condensation on components during cleaning.
Why is compressed air, therefore, considered better than vacuuming? Has anyone actually damaged any electronic equipment with vacuuming before?
(I've been doing it for years with nothing but fantastic results.)
