Ive got a bosch gts10xc, its a notch above the 4100. It really purrs. Gravity stand is a huge plus. Soft start also nice.
Because of the sliding table feature, mitre slots are not standard! Does not take dado stacks(not the european version anyway). Theres some play in the mitre gauge, like the makita and dewalt equivalents, not huge but annoying. The fence is good but not great, sometimes it doesnt lock square to the blade, so have to keep an eye on that. The rack and pinion fence on the dewalt is better, IMO. The makita looks real nice, but theres alot of plastic.
