Best Planer for the Money

I'm still new to woodworking and have been thinking about a purchasing a planer. I have never used a planer before, so I would have to learn to use it. What planer out would you recommend to purchase? I'm looking low cost, easy to operate, not big or bulky, somewhat portable (meaning I can use it on a table and then store it away after I'm done) and good performance. What should I look for or make sure one has when looking to make this purchase?

I had a DeWalt 733 for 20 years and used the fire out of it until late last year when it gave up the ghost. So I upgraded to the DW735 with tables and extra blades. It is a better machine than the 733 in many ways but if you'll only use one once in a while then the 734 is probably what I'd recommend.
