I have the Grizzly G0513 which is the 17" in the basic version. I found it on Craig's List and paid about $400 for it.
Before that I have had a old 14" Grizzly, Makita re-saw, Craftsman, and a smaller Powermatic (can't remember the size). None of these other saws come close to the G0513 in overall performance except maybe the Powermatic (not set up with a very powerful motor).
With the 2HP 220v motor, I can re-saw the full 12" height, no problem. With the right blade it runs smooth enough to handle intricate work acurately. I didn't expect much when I got this saw but I have been very pleasantly surprised.
