Hi,
I have the PC 4216 which is a 4210 with all the templates. It works great & is easy to set up & use. WoodCraft has the Porter Cable 4210 on sale right now for $99.99 until June 25, 2011. Here is a pic of a drawer done with the Half-Blind template.

I, too, have the PC 4216 (4210 with the full set of templates). I find it does an excellent job for a fixed-spacing jig, and includes useful features that are absent on the other similar (essentially, copy-cat) jigs.

I prefer to keep the stock stable and tightly-clamped in the PC-style jig, as I feel that results in better accuracy, and better-fitting joinery. In other words, fewer chances for mis-alignments or other mishaps that will affect the joint. But, there are other folks who prefer to use table-oriented jigs. That's OK, since there's always more than one way to solve a problem.

Just one more that can be used on the router table or the table saw,it can do 1/8" wide and up to 13/16" wide slots that no other router jig can do, that's a real plus for the Woodhaven jig..
