For me the Quick release riving knife is the deal closer to go with the G0690. Changing from a regular blade to a Dado is much easier with the quick release and you shouldn’t have to worry as much about alignment issues.

However if the G1023 fits your budget it is a fine saw. A much better choice than the G0899 or G0771 hybrid saws.

A hybrid table saw is a stationary table saw, built to look like a more expensive cabinet saw, but with internals more like a less expensive “contractor saw”. So it’s a hybrid between a cabinet saw and what is traditionally known as a contractor saw. Cabinet saws tend to be sturdy and heavy, typically with a 3 hp motor or larger, requiring a 240 volt circuit. The trunnions and saw mechanism are mounted directly onto the cabinet base, whereas on a hybrid table saw they are usually just bolted to the bottom of the cast iron table.
