Bennett, like Darell I upgraded from a Craftsman contractor saw to the Sawstop (PCS version). After two years of use it still is a joy to turn it on and make sawdust. With the Craftsman saw I was constantly fighting with it to make a decent cut. With the Sawstop I have not had to perform any adjustments to the fence, blade alignment, etc. in over two years of use. This is a tool that I initially had a hard time justifying (in my own mind since I am cheap) but ending up wishing I had done sooner after using the saw for the first time.

As Darell mentioned their customer service has always been excellent and I have received same day responses to any questions that I have had regarding the saw.

I have had one false trigger when I was setting up a dado cut on a piece of scrap that had a brad hidden in it. Apparently even this can be averted by simply putting a packing tape over the aluminum brake shoe to prevent the cut brad piece from making contact with the brake sensor. This does not interfere with the braking system but it does prevent bits of metal from activating the brake.

Would I buy the saw again? Without a doubt.
