I have the 13 inch Rigid and have used it mostly on 4/4 oak taking it to 3/4 inch. It came with a spare set of knives that I have not used yet. I have had no problems with the unit and no issue with snipe. The DeWalt looks like a heavier duty machine but is expensive compared to the Rigid. I initially thought I would want a heavier machine but I find the Rigid fills my needs. I have only made two end tables, two sofa tables,a three drawer night stand, a coffee table and a saw bench with it so it has not seen that much use.
