?? GMC TP2000 thicknesser - any good ??

I'm looking to buy a thicknesser for hobby use (finally after years of building bits of furniture around the house).
Its not going to get a lot of use (i think) so i dont want something too expensive but i do want it to work. Preferrably without too much snipe etc.
The local stores here in Sydney have either the Ryobi AP13 or a GMC TP2000 It seems most favour the GMC over the Ryobi.
Does anyone know anything about this thicknesser? Is it worth $359 aus or should i look at spending more serious money?
Thanks in advance

Peter,
Both machines are pretty much identical. You can find a review of the AP13 at http://www.onlinetoolreviews.com/reviews/ryobiap13.htm
