Two different saws with very different strengths. The DW is far more portable if that's important to you. The Delta weighs more and should be more stable, and has more table surface (especially in front of the blade), but you said it's not belt drive, meaning it's probably got a universal motor....$200-$250 is on the high side for that saw IMO. You should be able to find a good full size cast iron contractor saw with a belt drive induction motor in your price range...I'd keep looking.
