I like it because it is super easy to use, compact & light weight. It has a lot of power to remove swirl marks, yet it's gentle so I can't damage the finish on my vehicles!

With all due respect to the guys who tout the more powerful polishers, well no sh*t, Sherlock.
Some (a lot of us) want a machine that will make our rides look great, and take out 90% of those swirls to make us happy.
This machine will do just that. For us Daily Driver guys, this is for you.
Don't get caught up in the big boy polisher bashing of this unit. If you own a black Lamborghini, use a FLEX, if not, this a great detailing tool for you. JMO
ProsFor all of us who want a great looking ride, this is a great unit.
ConsNone, unless you want to to show your car at SEMA.

Great transaction: I knew what I was looking for, a replacement for a unit that was 21 years old. Best pricing is the initial eye catcher, a simple phone call and online order to make sure everything was "kosher"... delivery was faster than promised... Great service from AutoGeek! Added to my bookmarks for future reference! Thanks gang!
ProsThe entire transaction and merchandise
ConsNot a one.

I haven't opened the box as of yet. However, my first use will be in two weeks.
ConsI was told that I would receive my item during the same week when I called on Monday. However, I didn't receive my product until the early part of the following week.

Great for home use
The product is exactly as advertise. Great product!
ProsEasy to use and understand. Video was very helpful!
ConsI should have ordered the multi pad pack when purchased.

This is a very good polisher you just need to understand its limitations and expect it to take a little longer. It is a very safe polisher. But If you have more than swirls I would step up to the flex just to save time.
Great for wax and sealants
ConsIt takes a little longer

This is my 5th one I've bought in the last 10 years
ConsSpeed control switch only lasts about a year or 2 with everyday use, but for the price it's well worth it.

Very Good Polisher
Great product. Easy to use and great results !!

Everything I Expected!
I purchased this polisher to remove swirls & scratches from my recent body shop repair. I was able to restore the finish to better than new! It did take some time to master a good technique, but it was well worth it! Thank you for a great store web site and the forum loaded with invaluable information and instruction. I'm a happy camper!

Best Affordable Polisher
Best bang for your buck. A very well built machine that is easy to use. Highly recommended!

This product is amazing! It gives you the look of fine hand polishing without the work and physical therapy bills that go along with it. Do not be fooled into thinking this is the only buffer you will need. This is not a replacement for a rotary buffer! This machine will not do much heavy cutting at all despite what many say! However, this machine is great for moderate swirl and other similar defect removal. I use this tool in conjunction with my makita rotary to get the finest finish possible.
I have successfully used this product to:
remove buffer swirls (holograms)
fine swirling ...
waxing liquid and paste (with a soft foam pad @ low speed)
wax removal ( Low speed with micro fiber bonet)

once i received the pcxp i was like (whaaat!) its so small but great and powerful
but i wish if porter cable would sell an extension cord separately right here at AG
and there is a major power diff between the 5 and 6 speed setting there is no 5.5 setting
but most of the times i use speed (5)
any less than that it can barley spin
but still have (5stars)
November 18, 2011
The only downside to this machine is its lack of power. on any speed lower than 5 you will have a hard time keeping it spinning. Other than that the machine is perfect!

Best Bang for the Buck
I have owned my Porter Cable 7424xp for a few years now and I have not one bad thing to say about it. It Compounds, Polishes and is also great for applying LSP's (Last Step Products) It corrects better than any DA I have used and it's so versatile. You can use it to polish headlights, glass and so much more!
