I did some shopping around and the Rigid table saw was on sale for $500 + tax at my local home depot ($70 cheaper than Sears), so I went with that one. There were only 2 in stock in the entire metro area so I went ahead and bought it, so my husband already knows the surprise (no way I was going to get that thing home by myself).

He's thrilled!

Another thumbs up for the ridgid, do upgrade the blade and buy blade stablizers, will be even smoother cut.  Many years back Wood Magazine had an article how to build a cabnet for your contractor saw.  It will add storage drawers exhaust ports and you can make a built in router table.  All on wheels.  The wood cabnet will replace the stamped steel stock base contractors saws have. Solid and heavy as a rock.  Cannot do pics cause my garage is full of Christmas decorations, can do first of year if you are interested.
