I've had my TS2400 for a bit over 1 month. Built to furniture projects using it, I'm a hobbist woodworker. I used a DeWalt Construction grade, smooth cut, combination blade (40T ATB) for those projects, with a home made zero clearance insert, and the cut quality was excellant in my opinion. More that good enough to glue up a table top without jointing or hand planing the rip cuts.
I just recently picked up a Freud Glue Line Rip blade and with that blade the cuts look as though they were hand planed.
Cross cuts were of equally good quality with the DeWalt blade.
The cuts with the OEM blade were good, but did have some roughness that traces to the blade, in my opinion.
The saw only needed a small amount of adjustment out of the box to align every thing. Since that initial set up I've not seen any drift of the set up.
As you can tell I'm very pleased with this saw. I choose it over the TS3650 because I have limited space in the garage and even unfolded it has a smaller footprint than the TS3650.
