    Better question would be what are you going to use it for?

    I have not used the UDM, but I have heard both sides for good and bad. Good: More power
    Bad: Vibrates like crazy

    It's up to you, but I think the PC, despie the current lack of power vs. UDM, will be fine, since you already have the Makita.

    If you aren't using it for any correction honestly I would buy one of those cheap $20 hand held random orbitals. I have a Ryobi and I REALLY love it for applying glazes and LSPs. They are so light and quiet, that it makes it a breeze to use for that kind of stuff where you are not putting any weight on it and are using a very soft pad.

    I use my Ryobi with a Lake Country blue pad and use it for all LSP application. Makes it much quicker than doing it by hand.

    Here's one for you...

    This is the one I have:

    For what you want to use it for, the PC is fine. The UDM definitely has more correction power.

    If you want to be able to finish out with the rotary even with soft paint, get some 3M Ultrafina 3000 SE (swirl eliminator) and the blue egg crate finishing pad that was developed for use with Ultrafina.
