I had one of the first versions of the Delta, and it was a good sander as long as you didn’t sand much wider than 18-20”. Wider than that, and the boards had a tendency to burn along the edge of the sand paper.

A friend had one like the Jet and was always complaining of alignment problems and the difficulty of adjusting for even sanding.

If you can afford it, check with Woodmaster. I traded up to the 38” and couldn’t be happier. Never had any problems in over 3 years of almost constant use.
