Options for Random Orbit Sander were only two (in case I'm in Europe):
1. Bosch GEX 125-1 AE (ROS20VSK)
2. Makita BO5031K

Well... at first, after engineering comparison of both models deep inside (looked at manufacturer's parts layout), we can see, that Bosch has two ball bearings, and Makita has three ball bearings, one of them is oversized for longer tool life. One more thing about Bosch ball bearings: both of them are replaceable only with armature in one piece. It would be very expensive repair after warranty ending.
At second, Makita has more power.
At third, Makita is cheaper.
At fourth, both models perform sanding very well.
At fifth, why pay more for tool, which has less advantages?
I bought Makita BO5031K, and I'm very satisfied. It starts and stops smoothly. On-off switch is protected from dust, comfortable in use, and in case of convenience is identical to Bosch.

Does a fine job as a sander but the on/off switch is clumsy to operate. I also wish that it had an adapter for dust collection; I grow so weary of having to always jury rig dust collection. One would think that some designer would consider it. The dust bag is hardly adequate as a dust collector.

I bought the exact same sander without the case. It's good, better than the competing sanders costing just a few dollars less. I returned two before settling on this one. All these sanders are messy; most of the duct that is supposed to be collected in the bag never makes it there. Makita makes a vacuum hose attachment that collects approx. 85% of the dust that would otherwise become airborne making jobs much, much cleaner. See the reviews for Makita 192108-A 3/4-Inch by 10-Foot Hose.

Just received the sander and tried immediately.
I already got the sanding disks from generic brand.
The disks stick to the base of the sander by means of kind of velcro, very well.
The sander has variable speed allowing to obtain different levels of sanding effect.
You have to know / learn how to position the sander on the surface.
With different angles and pressure the results are noticeable.
For my current project it did work very efficient, saving me time in cleaning and finishing the old surface in an outdoor table.
The bag collects sufficient dust.

Overall I do recommend it, but you need to know the proper grit of the sand disks.
I used 80 - 120 to remove old paint and level the surface and for finishing 220.

I have Makita tools and they work perfect all-time.

Thanks Amazon for the prompt and free delivery

I tried all 3... i started with the 5030, it's lack of variable speed was disappointing, but otherwise, it functioned perfectly. I then bought the combo package with the LXT sander, thinking, it'd be nice to have a portable one on battery life. It works exactly as described, but not quite there. the vacuum didn't function at all, and it was rather bulky with the battery. Also, I didn't like that it cycles through the speeds with one button, rather than having a dial to alter the speed like this one does. Thus, I found this one to be the best sander.

The sander is comfortable to hold in my hand, not heavy, not light, the on/off button mounted in front doesn't annoy me.
The action is very smooth, vibration is minimal and much less than previous sanders I have used.
The sanding pattern is decent.
For finish sanding this machine is exceptional, the variable speed is a great feature that allows a lot of control over your sanding.

For high volume removal this sander doesn't really have the teeth, it is not vert aggressive, even at the highest setting with 40 or 60 grit pads.

The dust collection bag started coming apart after the second time I used it.
The dust port is so tiny that there really is no way to hook up a shop vac to it.

For the price it is good value, I would buy it again.

Another great product from Makita. Difficult to fault it. I was skeptical about the effectiveness of the dust bag but it actually works very well. Essential if you're sanding indoors or by a pool and you need to keep the dust down. The included carry case is very robust too. There are no sanding discs included so I bought the "Mirka 23-615-AP Gold 5-Inch 8-Hole Dustless Hook-and-Loop Sanding Disks" that amazon recommended, and they work very well with this sander.

This thing is a peach - (relatively) quiet and quite capable. I don't use these for a living so read other reviews for subtle differences between types of sanders but I refinished three tabletops in an afternoon without a hitch using it. The dust collection seemed very good (again, YMMV) - it's a keeper.
