Which buffer?

I'm looking for a good buffer (random orbital; 5" or 6") at a good price. What's out there? My '06 Tacoma is looking a little tired and I want to show it some love.

Porter Cable 7424, End of discussion.

I use one with a 3m flexible velcro backing plate and an assortment of Lake country pads depending on the level of cutting I need.

I bought mine 5 years ago from Lowes for $110 and I love it. I also use it as a random orbit sander.
