I have not seen it myself, but a friend just told me that the current issue of "Fine Woodworking" has a review of Drill Presses under $450. He said the Ridgid DP1550 came in second just below the Delta 17-965. Pretty impressive considering the Delta has an extra 1/4 HP, a better style depth stop, and a larger stroke.
I have the Delta. The fact that I could not find a local HD that had a DP1550 in stock helped my decision, but it was still a tough choice between the two!
Good Job Ridgid!
