    I have a Megs and my roomate has a PC. I have used both and I personally like the Megs... because its mine haha just kidding... but I feel there is less vibration in the handles and machine. Other than that they work equally as well. I dont know if that helps
    Peace

    Go with the griots. I hear it works real nice and has more power. I have the old PC and plan on getting a griots, to go with my flex 3401

    The Griot Garage is alot more power full the the PC. The Griot Garage is more like the Flex DA but smaller more compact and easier to use. It is powerfull enougth to power a 6'' pad with is pretty impressive for a DA. Since you are knew to a DA I would recommand the Pinnacle Advance Swirl Remover, Pinnacle Advance Polish, and Pinnacle Liquid Souveran (I believe that is on of the kits) or Wolfgnag 3.0 TSR, Wolfgang 3.0 Finishing glaze, and Wolfgang 3.0 Paint Sealant. These are great kit to start off and learn with. Both kits work very well and are very easy to use.

    I wouldn't compare it to the flex. The flex has forced rotation and more orbital rotations. The orbital path on the griots is 9mm vs. 8mm on the flex. The flex has 3ft more cord alsoa nd a 10 amp motor compared to griots 7 amp motor.


    GRIOTS Features:
    More Powerful 7-Amp, 850-Watt Motor
    2,500 - 6,800 Orbits Per Minute
    Variable Speed, Wider RPM Range
    Wider 5/16" orbit pattern for faster and better results
    Ergonomic Adjustable Handle
    More Torque, Better Performance
    Longer 10 Foot Power Cord
    Backing plate included

    FLEX features:
    Maximum polishing pad diameter 160 mm or 6.3 inches
    10 amp motor
    Velcro pad 150 mm or 5.9 inches
    Speed without load 160-480 rpm
    Orbit (stroke length) 8 mm or 0.31 inches
    Orbit rate, without load 3200-9600 rpm
    Power input 900 Watt
    Power output 590 Watt
    Weight 2.60 kg or 5.73
    13ft power cord

    I know, just didn't want you thinking the flex and griots da's were about the same.
