I recommend the Ridgid OSS. The oscillating belt feature is so handy, and works great for fairing gentle curves. I hardly ever use the small spindles, but use the belt feature all the time.
I have also come to appreciate the tilting table. When used with a miter gauge, chamfering ends of tenons becomes a simple task. Gone are the days of hand planing chamfers, hoping to get them smooth and even. With the Ridgid OSS, it becomes automatic.
It is not built to industrial specs, but for the hobby level woodworker, it really fills a niche.
