Drill Press: Grizzly vs Delta?

I have my eye on a couple drill presses and I'd appreciate input regarding quality and comparisons:
Delta DP30 12" variable speed Grizzly G7943 14" 12-speed
The prices are similar (actually the Grizzly is a bit cheaper), so that's not much of a concern. I just want o know which is better and why. Or if neither is any good, what would you recommend instead for around $200?

Grizzly has a problem with the depth gauge, it will sometimes drift from the depth you set it for (only a problem if you are doing large numbers of holes) . The delta seems to have a good depth gauge. Otherwise I like the Grizzly better.

They may have changed the depth gauge since you bought yours. Mine has a threaded rod on the left side. Once the nuts are tightened I don't see how it would be a problem.
I like my grizzly a lot, and would recommend it for someone looking in the $200 range.

Mine has a dial indicator and locking nut. I like the threaded rod and nut a lot better, harder to set up but stays put.

Whanna trade? Delta dial was accurate, easy to set up (lower the bit to touch the wood, then dial in the depth from there and lock it in) and never strayed from where I put it. Now I have the threaded rod on the bigger Delta that doesn't take much pressure to get the stop to bypass the threads.
