    They both have their own purpose. A straight line sander is primarily used to rough out body filler over large areas using something like 36 to 80 grit paper. Most straight line duel piston sanders are all the same. Pay attention to the stroke it produces. The longer stroke units cut faster where the shorter stroke gives you better control for finishing.

    The orbital sander commonly referred to as a DA is used for just about everything else. Many good brands out there. The real cheap ones are not very good. The cheap ones use a ton of air and shake too much to get a good finish. My favorite is an IR brand with a good 6 inch feather edging pad.
