Yeah, stay with the self-stick pads if you can. I had a hook and loop, but ended up sanding down the pad to convert it to self-stick.
One problem I've had with the PC is that I've broken two of the drive belts, thin rubber things that look like long O-rings and make the pad do its hula gyrations. They're cheap, and fairly easy to replace, but you'll probably have to order them from PC.
I could print what I said the last time a drive belt broke when I was rushing to finish a job before the winter set in, but the comments would not be at all PC.
