I'm a little late to the party, here, but I will throw my 2 cents in. You have not really stated what you are looking for in a saw. Do you want 110 or 220, do you need it to roll around, etc? Is that saw local to you? More info needed! Hard to put value for dollars spent without some backstory, in my opinion. For the same money you could have a very nice used professional saw in the delta or powermatic range. Heck, for another 500 or so, you could have a brand new sawstop contractor saw. He does offer a good many "extras" but, unless you feel you will need them, they are just lipstick on a yada yada yada. I have no doubt that this saw is probably a decent saw, especially with the addons, but 1K is steep.
