Summary: Accesories are expensive but worth the price. The optional dust hood is excellent. The quality of the cut is superior, I have owned two other planers and this one has them both beat. The magnetic blade holders are super for holding the blades precisely when changing or adjusting blades. This is the best 12 inch planer on the market today.
Pros: combination joiner/planer, excellent quality, ease of setup and blade changing and adjustments.
Summary: If it were not for expensive repairs, I'd be highly pleased with my 60" projection TV. Admittedly, problems didn't occur until approximately my 6th year of ownership, but when they started, they wouldn't let up. I'll probably scrap the set the next time a problem occurs and buy another big-screen set with a higher reliability rating.
Pros: Great picture and attractive product styling
Summary: I had a Hitachi TV for years and it gave great performance - I expected the same from the VCR. But the model (now two years old) has fewer useful programming features, and the interface is not as intuitive as it could be.
Pros: On-screen programming is confusing and has fewer "good" features than older model
Cons: On-screen programming is confusing and has fewer "good" features than older model
