i've been pretty happy with my 36-725; i've had it for about a month now. it's done light duty cutting jobs right now, but has easily resawn construction grade 2x4 as well as rock maple. I have a Freud LU83R010 thin kerf combo blade on it.
It's way better than my first table saw which was a beat up 315 series Craftsman that i brought back to life and got some good use out of. This Delta still outperforms that Craftsman in all areas.
I sometimes wish I'd of spent the extra and gotten the Laguna or Grizzly that I was eyeing, but this has been more than sufficient for my weekend woodworking hobby.
I do worry that the lack of parts/accessories means it's still a "beta/we'll see how it does" product from Delta, and not a "we're backing this model/product for years to come" product from Delta.
Time will tell, I reckon.
Bottom line, if you're a serious woodworker, you're probably going to be too picky and this saw is never going to meet your expectations, but from my hobbyist perspective, if you put the saw together correctly, go through the alignment/fine-tuning guides on Lumberjocks, and keep a sharp/appropriate blade, and lastly, keep it tuned in general; then i think you'll have a solid saw at your disposal.
Just my thoughts on it thus far. :D (my only perspective is from using cheap ryobi table saws, "ok" craftsman 315 model saws, getting to use a unisaw back in college, and of course, this 36-725).
P.S., I asked my local Lowes about taking the HF coupon, they refused to take it, but instantly offered me 10% off instead, so that took care of tax in my area at least.
