For many that is probably a great saw but for me hands down if I had the choice of paying $117 for the new sears I posted on sale and the used one Jason is looking at I would buy the used one.
The reason being is the table size, there is no plastic, the fence is longer, it has a 60 inch rip capacity and if you wanted to make a miter sled or any other cutting sled the blade is back far enough so you can. And besides that setting up a saw to rip more than 24" like many are can cost well over $150 in accessories to achieve it.
I may be a little old school but I like the older tools. I recently worked on a job where I used one of the new dewalt table saws, kind of like the sears one maybe better. But when I got home and worked on my big all metal cast iron saw there is no comparison for me.
It's not to say that he may not find something cheaper but when everything is there that you want and it's a fair price why not.
