I have no experience to compare the saws. But will say that the SawStops are great saws without considering the safety technology. I have a 3 HP PCS and can’t imagine how it could be any better for me. I don’t think a bigger heavier saw would work better for me. Though certainly makes sense in a production shop where it will hold up better over time running hours every day.

I estimated that the SawStop had about a $500 premium for the safety technology. While that’s not insignificant, over the decades I expect to use the saw, the difference is trivial. And of course it would pay for itself many times over if it saves me from a serious injury.
