To narrow down the choices and prevent another war, ;~) how about first
telling us what you are looking for in a saw and what you will be doing with
it. Other wise pick one with a color you like and that you can afford. I
no not recall any one complaining about their particular brand cabinet saw.
Okay, here's my two cents, but that all this comment is worth anyway.
(and I agree with Leon's point of view too)
I have owned and used two table saws . The first was a Craftsman that
did not perform well for me until I added a Unifence to it. My
current saw is a Unisaw that performs much better in all regards to my
earlier saw. Various accessories have made both saws work better. A
less expensive saw with a sliding cut off table and a reliable fence
could be your best value instead of buying the most expensive saw and
then needing to make or use those accessories.
Although I have been pleased with my Unisaw, there are some features
on the Powermatics that I wish were on mine. Riving knife, dust chute
under the blade to name two. Fit and finish on the PM is better than
my Delta. But, I have a lot of the accessories for my saw that make
my shop life easier and lots of fun.
Again, 2 pennies worth of opinion (and that's a liberal estimate)

Start with a UniFence.
Jack it up, drive anything that wants to call itself a cabinet saw
Chances are you will be happy.
Do the math.
650 = 300 + 350. 300 = 85% of 350.
The 650 is 85% better than the 350, for about the same price.
Generally speaking, it's all about value! Do I have to teach youz
