I have the Jet CTAS 10 inch table saw. Mine is a 1980 era saw. These are good saws. I have used the Powermatic 66 and in all reality they both cut wood about the same. The blade and the fence system are just as important. I do think $1000 is a bit high. I paid $700 for mine about 5 years ago. It came with a 52 inch Biesemeyer fence and a few accessories including a large outfeed table. I have not had any problems with this saw. My neighbor has the Unisaw and it is a great saw also, but he had problems with motor fan that was somewhat expensive. I would say the Jet would be worth less than a Powermatic or Unisaw, not because of quality, but perception. You would also have a better resale value with these.
The Jet is a good saw, but a $1000?
