tile inlay wet saw

I am doing tile images ( horses / griz. bears, salmon etc ) and have been using a apollo gemini wet ring saw.. the saw was initially made for stain glass work but it was found it works on ceramic tile as well.. it has been working for me on wall tile but only to a degree, and porcelain tile is very hard on it.. ( no pun intended ).

I have come across a few wet band saws on the market out of the U.S. ( diamond laser 5000 for example ). it looks like this is what i need but reviews tend to be pretty scathing as "made in China" seems to be the big concern.

Anyone using a wet band saw for tile image inlay and can you recommend a saw?
thanks!
Richard from Northern British Columbia .. where there are lots of griz, fish, and horses!
