Goody has a good point. As stated earlier, I have a few HF units with switches on top. They are kind of a pain to use. Not to mention if I happen to drop the grinder or something, it'll stay running.
I also have a couple Dewalts with the paddle switch. These are super easy to use and if something happened and it slips it will automatically switch off. Easier to use and safer!
Also mentioned, having at least two grinders is almost a need. One with a cutting wheel, and the other with a flap disc to clean up things sure is nice instead of swapping back and forth. There has been a few projects where I've had all four of my grinders out at the same time. Cutting wheels, wire wheels, and flap wheels of different grits. It's very nice just grabbing a different tool instead of swapping back and forth a million times. For most fab stuff though, a cut off wheel and a flap disc is almost always needed.
