I was going to buy one, but the store I went to was out of stock.
So I went to Lowe's and got a Delta
I can say the Delta does just what it claims it will do. No frills.
There's a beauty it that. 
The Rigid looks a slightly better on paper, and it may be slightly
better. It's a bit cheaper too. (However, one post cautions to watch the
[crossposted] news:rec.woodworking wood be a better place for this type
of question. State your intended use.
 Yeah, I know it's a cheap-o, but I'm not embarrassed. I like it.
I have the Rigid 13 inch model and I am very pleased with it. I've done
hundreds of borad feet of Cherry and Maple in this and the finish
quality is very good. I will admit that I am very conservative and do
not take a lot of thickness off with each pass so I may not be a good
test. The blades seem to last a long time and are very easy to replace.
It would be nice to have two feed speeds and if I was buying today I
would probably look at the new 13 inch, dual speed Dewalt but I have no
desire to replace what I have.
Hope this helps.
