I bought a used DeWalt DW735 for $350 about a year ago. I never wanted anything else. I held out until the right deal came at the right price, and never regretted it. It is an excellent planer.

WILD SPECULATION, NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY:

I wonder whether the jointer and planer markets are evolving away from blades, to where the small spiral-type cutters become the norm at roughly the same price points as current blade versions. That might make a future DW735 overpriced in comparison to its competitors. DeWalt may choose to coast for a while on the DW735's excellent reputation among benchtop planers. It would be nice if DeWalt replaced the blades with cutters and kept the same price point to remain competitive. Even if they don't, the emergence of more cutter-based planers may drive the price of used DW735s down, but not fast enough.
