If you are looking for a true cabinet saw, a lot of folks like the Sawstop for its quality and blade safety feature...but, to save a finger you lose an arm and a leg at the checkout counter. Powermatic makes a great saw, and I heard the Unisaws are great too. Better have 220v in the shop though. Although, Sawstop makes a 1 3/4 hp 110v model. Figure on anywhere from $2500 to $3500. For a good hybrid saw, look more for features and less at name brands. The key features are type of fence, location of trunions (cabinet mounted very preferrable but harder to find), and motor type/size. Budget $600 to $1500. For a more portable saw, Bosch gets consistently good marks on its 4100-09 saw, around $800. Any TS becomes a lot better with a proper alignnent (which is why cabinet mounted trunions are preferred) and a quality blade.....that's my very short answer.....now, your gonna hear 1000 other opinions, and most will be just as valid, just from a different perspective.
