Since you already have it I’d keep it. If it works ok for the type of projects you make then you can spend the money that a new one would cost for some other tool. I have had this model for many years (about the 2nd tool I bought) and while it has worked ok, I really don’t use it that much because I buy my wood straightlined and planed on one side so I already have all the reference edges I need.

The major drawback with this model is that the outfeed table can’t be adjusted which makes getting the blades adjusted somewhat difficult. The upside to that is the outfeed table gibs will never wear out, LOL. Hopefully your infeed table is co-planer with the outfeed table, because I’d envision correcting it would be tedious at best.
