Decisions, decisions - Bandsaws: Rikon 10-345 v. PWBS-14CS v. JWBS-18

I'm looking for a bandsaw, partly for curtting curves and partly for resawing.
The Jet is a used machine; the Powermatic & Rikon are new. The PWBS is 14", but Woodcraft is offering a free 6" riser & moble base. The Rikon & Jet are both 18". The Rikon & Powermatic+riser have 12" resaw, while the Jet has 10.25".
Can anyone share some experiences with these saws, either pro or con.
Much appreciated.
Devon

Is this your first BS? I went through this a couple of years ago and bought the Rikon and returned it 2 weeks later. I bought it sight unseen and was assured that if I was not happy I could return it. I do not like the roller guides bearings. I know that many improvements have been made but I was upgrading and none of those saws really filled the bill for me. I would advise getting a saw with ceramic guides or replacing the guides with ceramic guides. I ended up going with a Laguna.
