I think it was Popular Woodworking but I'm not going to go check. And
yes, it saves your hand, if it was your hand that triggered it, but
since tons of people report having it go off accidentally when their
hands were not in danger, it gets pretty expensive. There's nothing
wrong with the technology if you choose to use it, but when it's close
to $200 out of pocket every time it goes off and most people, like me,
have yet to cut anything off, just by being careful, it's questionable
whether or not it's a good investment.
Typically your answers will be favorable form actual users and non favorable
from those that do not own or use one. There are a lot of urban myths
already about the saw.
For your best information you should contact owners and the manufacturer for
valid answers to your questions.

Magazine reviews look upon this saw quite favorably. In fact, I think
the actual device is probably pretty nice.
My personal opinion is that I don't care for the method the inventor
has chosen to get it into every shop in America. Were it not for his
actions in doing that, I may have saved my money to get one.
As it is, I went ahead a bought a nice new saw that doesn't have the
sawstop feature partly as my own "drop in the bucket" protest against
the inventors actions. Of course it also matters that it was time for
a new saw, not just some sort of statement.
