This all depends on what you want from the product, and what you'll use it for...
And how can you tell it looks good from a bad quality 150 x 150 pixel image? ;)

Personally I wouldn't buy this from an online shop, I'd much rather go buy it in a local hardware shop.
Because :
*You can really examine it closely before you buy it there.
*There's more choices than on a website
*It'll cost less
*And there are no shipping costs

hmmmm that looks really ghetto . . . but for the price its hard to beat . . . try to get a X/Y table and a vice for it, i wouldnt use a drill press without one - so useful!

this is what I own:
http://www.ares-server.com/Ares/Ares.asp?MerchantID=RET01229&Action=Catalog&Type=Product&ID=82959
with this X/Y table:
http://www.ares-server.com/Ares/Ares.asp?MerchantID=RET01229&Action=Catalog&Type=Product&ID=82389
and this vice (which is very poor quality, but still useful):
http://www.ares-server.com/Ares/Ares.asp?MerchantID=RET01229&Action=Catalog&Type=Product&ID=15118



this looks kinda nice . . . but probably way too expensive for you . . .

then the even more expensive but high quality stuff . . .
