It depends on what you want and how much you're willing to spend. Were you planning on buying a portable bench-top model, a contractor saw or a full-fledged cabinet saw. IMHO opinion, if you wanted a "cheapy" $200 saw, I probably wouldn't bother at all. It would be better to save up for something which you won't end up throwing out in a year.

Busy bee stuff is not bad value for the money in a mid-range saw. I think they had a fairly decent sale price (around $500- $700 if I recall) and it had a fairly decent fence (accusquare). If you are able to get into one of their stores, the sales people are fairly knowledgeable. It is decent value for the money. A mid-range to higher end craftsmen saw is also good value for the money and Sears does stand by their tools.

King tools are similiar in quality to Busy Bee's stuff. It is definitely a cut above what you'd find at candian tire.
