I have the current version Ridgid and I use it fairly regularly.
I like it but I don’t love it.
I thought the extra large table would be great, but as it turns out I don’t use that space and it makes the spindle kinda hard to reach with very little table area behind it.
Another feature I though would be great is the oscillating belt sander, but it’s not really big enough to be very useful and I hardly use it at all.
The machine works fine and does exactly what it’s supposed to do, my needs don’t quite match this machine though.
If doing it over I wouldn’t get the combination spindle / belt machine, I would get a dedicated spindle sander.
