Unless you have a lot of inside curves to sand, the belt/disc sander wins hands down. I have a 6×48 / 12” Delta that I would hate to live without. The OSS is convenient, but seldom used in my shop. For box work, a disc sander (and a drum sander) is indispensable. As others have said, it depends on what you do.
