Planers

I am currently in the market for a new planer in the 15" range. I have seen (online, not in person) the new one from Delta, X5 series, Model # 22-790X. I am hoping that someone that freqents the ng has bought one or used/demo'ed one. As it is a new unit, I have been unable to get any reviews at all. From other reviews, the unit that it is replacing had some major issues, mostly with the bed and roller alignment. At 1200.00 I am not looing for any headachs, just a unit that will perform the way it was designed.
I have not settled on this model yet, but it is a strong contender, also looked at Grizzly, powermatic (not really looking to go another 1000 for it..), but open to other suggestions. I do a lot of rough cut red oak, and planing of doing some rought cut cherry in the near future for an upcoming project. I think it is time to replace the 12.5 Delta portable...
Thats for any suggestions
