need help with an accurate and affordable dovetail jig

Hi all,
I am new to LJ and I am amazed at the collective wealth of knowledge and experience here. I have been woodworking for just over a year and I am in the market for a good dovetail jig. Money is an issue, otherwise I would jump straight to the Leigh, so I am considering the Porter Cable 4212.
I think that I will mostly be routing half-blinds, but it doesn't seem like a tremendous price difference to go up to the through dovetail jigs.
Does anyone have any recommendations for an accurate and affordable jig?

porter cable is offering a rebate now through April on the 4212 and their omni-jig.
okay, I spent a little more than I was planning but I am happy with my choice. I bought the Porter Cable 4216, which is the same as the 4212 but it also comes with a miniture through dovetail template. I like making boxes, so I thought that would come in handy. I had to special order it from Woodcraft so I should be getting it in a few days. I can't wait to try it out. Thank you all for you input.
