Random orbit sander is the only one I use. My 1/4 sheet buzz sander just sits in the cabinet. The old 1/4 sheet sanders vibrate your hand numb very quickly, and tend to get squirrely. The new breed of ROS’s, especially those with variable speed are a vast improvement. They are much easier to handle, and the resulting finish is great.
I like the Bosch and Dewalt 5” sanders. I use them connected to a shop vac.
Good luck.
