General International 12' bandsaw

Hi Everyone,
I am new to the forum and already found a lot of useful info on topics that interest me. As an absolute novice in the field I am patiently learning the ropes in my spare time. To make it clearer, this is my hobby and I cannot wait to come back from work to set on the next project.
I have been researching the smaller bandsaws and was wondering if anyone has had experience with General International 12". The 14" GI was rated at par with Delta in a 2002 comparison (I think it was the Woodworker, 4.5 of 5 stars). Nothing about its smaller brother, the 12", though.
Any advice/shared experience would be veru helpful.
I would not go for a 14" or above, first I won't use it that much and second - room and weight restrictions.
