That’s certainly on the high end. Though that label says “Cabinet Saw” this is certainly a hybrid. Cons on this would be: smaller motor, table mounted trunions, no riving knife, right tilt. The fence is probably the one pro.

You’re right that for about ~$300 more (delivered) you could get a Grizzly hybrid delivered that fixes a few of these issues: cabinet mounted trunions, left tilt, riving knife. Fence won’t be as good, but more than adequate. Realistically I’d be comparing this saw to the Rigid/Delta hybrids that run about $600.

Depending on your market, you should be able to find a decemt used Unisaw for $800. If you could get this down to $500-600 I’d consider it.
