If you get s20 you'll have an excellent all rounder, it has good cut and finishes down really well. I don't think you'd be disappointed.

They're definitely worthy of the cheap price. They cake up fairly quickly but with a few pads on hand, a significant difference can be achieved.

Can't speak for the pads as I've never used them but S3 Gold XXL has more cut and can finish down quite well with the right pad.
