At last, a useful sander
I purchased a Makita Cordless Random Orbit Sander close to a year ago, and it has become one of my go-to tools. I won't go into the design specifics (that's Makita's domain) but it essentially follows a complex orbit and rotates at the same time.

Purchased in November 2018 for $184.28.
