Jointer - Grizzly G0452 vs. Ridgid JP0610

I'm looking to buy a jointer to square mostly pine wood for furniture.
I found a Grizzly G0452 on CL for $400 with new blades. I also thought about the Ridgid jointer JP0610 ($600) brand new at home depot. I have used the porter cable jointer before but the tables are not very long and wanted to get something bigger. Anyone one have any experiences with these machines. I will be using some 8ft boards on the jointer also.
Thanks

Neither jointer is too great. The Grizzly has a 49" bed which is 3 1/2" longer than the Ridgid. It might be worthwhile to search a little longer and see if you can find a bigger one. What ever jointer you get is likely to last you the rest of your life. Might as well just shop once.
