    Thats what I have too and its top notch. If you are careful and not too gung-ho then a novice will have great results with one - as I started with these. But as Parsco says, decent pads make all the difference (don't use the ones that come with it).

    I couldn't see in the advert there, but you really need to get a 'dual action' one and not just a rotary one. A dual action rotates but also oscillates too as opposed to just the rotation. A rotational only can end up causing swirls
