I'd be interested in the percentage of accidents with the table saw in comparison to driving a car. Does that mean we won't buy a car because it doesn't have the latest and greatest safety feature.There's no doubt that anytime you can find a safer way to do something the better. But I'm with steliart in that fear should not be the deciding factor in purchasing the SawStop. Buy it because over all it's the superior saw. If I had the money the SawStop would be one of the saws at the top of my list. But not just because of the technology.
