I own or owned both. The Ryobi does well but you do see snipe more on it. It also has 2 knives vs. 3 on the Ridgid. The fold up tables are handy as well. If budget allows I’d pick orange. If not blue will serve you well. When I had the Ryobi I would plane to thickness before cutting to length allowing me to cut off the end where snipe occurred. I have been happy with both planers.
