My old table saw
I've been pondering getting a new table saw in the $300-400 range. Basically, a Lowes or HD saw.
I have an old Skillsaw that I've had for some 25 years or so. It works, I know how to use it to get a straightish cut.
But, it is really loud and sort of scares me to use just because it's loud and old. I'm not going to cut any 4x8 sheets with it.

Anyway, My main dilemma with buying a new saw is that basically everything nowadays is junk. Reviews I've read indicate that there is lots of plastic. I look at the saws at Lowes and HD that have just been sitting on the shelf and they are basically falling apart.
How are these new saws? Would I be happy with a new one?
I know it's a stupid question just looking for some insight of some sort.
