I upgraded to the 735 from a Delta 12” bench top and I found the difference significant.
The finishing speed on the 735 has produced glass like surfaces.
I put a new set of the DeWalt knives on it as soon as I bought it (used) and after about 2 years of use am still on the second side of that set.
If this is your last planer, I vote for the 735 and a set of carbide knives from Affinity.
