I think that you will get similar results from all the planers that you mentioned. If you have a dc you won’t need the chip blower on the dewalt. The rigid has a good warranty. I would also check the cost of replacing the blades. If you adjust the indeed and out feed tables (not standard on the dewalt) you can almost eliminate snipe, but if your board is too short to reach both rollers and the ends of the in feed/out feed tables you will get snipe every time. No matter what planer you use you will have to do some sanding/hand planing/scraping before you finish.
