Benchtop Belt/Disk Sander Recommendation

I want to buy a benchtop sander such as a 4 x 36" belt with a 6 - 8" disk. I'd prefer to have separate tables for each. Any recommendation for or against will be appreciated.

I have a Delta benchtop sander model 31-460 type 2. It is very weak. Delta may make several different models. Check out the HP and get one strong enough not to bog down when you try to sand a piece.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

I also have the Delta and it is weak. The 6" disc is worthless. I have been looking at the Grizzly 6" X 48" belt with 9" disc. It has a 3/4 hp motor and better dust collection than the Delta. It is also double the price.
