Interesting, I've found just the opposite. I bought a Rigid 5" ROS and it comes with plates for both adhesive or hook and loop. I've found the adhesive always gets really hot and then the sandpaper won't stick to the pad anymore...long before the paper needs to be replaced. Using the hook and loop, I have no issues at all. But I've only actually used my ROS for smallish stuff...and the boat once.

I have been pleased with the Rigid so far, and it was about $20 cheaper than other models. Adjustable speeds, nice weight decent collection bag that can be removed to attach a vacuum hose, all the features I thought I'd need. Plus the adhesive or hook and loop plates both came with it.
