I have one of those. As far as I've found on mine nothing is wrong with it.
The only problem with the year old ones is finding blades. They sell out as
soon as they come in. Was told by a saleguy that the new version has a
stronger motor in it.

I don't know if you mean "what's wrong with it" in general, or if
you're concerned with the specific one Rob is selling. But if you're
asking about the planer in general, I can happily say "absolutely
nothing." Santa brought me one, too. They guy at the BORG where I
bought it told me for his money it was hands down the best choice.
The setup was SUPER-easy--no adjustments required, blade already
installed, etc. One small piece of advice--if you try to take more
than about a 1/16th off, you may tend to get tearout. Other than
that...it's really great.
Ditto ... had one for a couple of years and, while it doesn't compare to
that old standalone 20" back in wood shop, it does a good job for the price,
especially when you learn its tricks.
Mine handles 3/4 - 5/4 stock just fine, any thicker and it's time to get out
the extension jig, as all the adjusting and head locks in the world won't
stop the tendency to snipe on thick stock. However, $5 worth of mdf and a
hardwood cleat solve the problem by making the table longer.
I was just inquiring about the planer in general. When he said that he was
getting a larger one, the was a good enough answer for me. I asked "What's
wrong with it?" because I thought maybe he had major problems with it.
