$400 is waaaaaay high. $150-$175 is reasonable for that saw IMO. It's made by Mao Shan, and there are many nearly identical saws with a myriad of different logos slapped on them. The Grizzly name plate is about the extent Grizzly was involved with this saw back in 1986. It's in decent shape, and has grated cast wings, but $400 is more than it cost new. $400 should buy a pretty darn nice used table saw...I don't think this is the one.

The saws below all basically have the same guts, and came from the same factory.





This one is currently $175 on CL:

That Griz should make for a decent saw, but they're asking more than twice what it's worth (IMHO). It's a full size, cast iron saw with a belt drive induction motor, which is generally a step in the right direction. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to send an email about the Griz telling them that's severely overpriced, and make a reasonable offer....or keep looking until you find a better deal.

Here are a few that look like better deals and/or better saws to me:
