Flex = Direct Drive
PC, Megs, Griot's Shurhold, etc. = Free Spinning
The normal route that people go when transitioning from hand to machine
goes like this, PC, Megs, Griot's --> Flex 3401 --> Rotary Buffer
One thing I notice is once people master the PC style tool they'll tend to want more power because the pad on the PC style tools can stop rotating in certain situations. That's normal, (people wanting a more powerful tool), but they forget from where it was they came... that is working by hand.
When people switch from working by hand to working by machine it's AWESOME! The results are always faster and better... but as they master the PC style tools they forget the awesomeness factor because their skill, experience and knowledge level is greater and now they're ready for more power and a new level of awesomeness.
