Default Best 6" Benchtop Belt Sander

Do folks have any experience feedback about the various 6" Belt/9-12" disc Sanders out there?? I see mixed reviews on the Jet and in the last 3 years has gone from $300-600!! What about Shop Fox and Grizzly. This is a basic shop machine-I just want long-term reliability and reasonable accuracy.

Jeff a friend of mine has the Grizzly G0547 and he is quite happy with it. He has a few other Grizzly tools at well and has no complaints. You might want to take at good look at their sanders.
