Remember that with sanders, dust collection should (and will) be an important consideration. DC is a major factor for me when choosing tools. Using a belt sander without good collection creates a hell of a mess and is unhealthy. I should know, I did that for a year or so and I still have dust in the shop from that time.

I find that I use the OSS more than the belt, but it depends on what you like to build.
