I like the Dewalt 735
1. planes to a nice smooth finish.
2. handles 13” wide stock
3. self indexing knives are easy to change, and reversible
4. internal blower aids dust collection
5. auto cutterhead lock saves an extra step each cut
6. depth stops at 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1” and 1-1/4” are very handy
7. can plane as thin as 1/8” without any special jigs

The extension wings are really manditory for best performance. My only real complaint is that it is louder than larger commercial planers, however those come at a whole different price point.
