anyone have any experience with mk diamond 660 wet saw?

i've been reading that its one of the quieter mk products. i know a lot of them are really noisy, i was wondering if its worth the $600 price tag. I've been considering this mk 660 over the Felker because i heard the felker had more "plastic" parts.

SPECS..

Quiet running motor at 3500 rpm delivers fast cutting on tile up to 14 in. Chrome guide bar, linear bearing assembly for precise alignment/cutting. Advanced Braking System stops the blade quickly.


Chrome guide-bar and linear-bearing assembly ensures precise alignment/cutting
Compact and lightweight with carrying handles for easy transportation
Lightweight cast aluminum for rigidity and strength
Hinged Blade Guard for easy blade changes and maintenance inspection
1 pc. reinforced zinc-plated steel frame with carrying handles
Specially designed, advanced braking system (ABS) assists stopping the blade quickly
High-impact removable thermoplastic water reservoir
High-volume, fully submersible thermally protected water pump
Includes 7 in. MK-100 wet cutting diamond blade, water pump, adjustable rip guide, stand

I've owned my 660 for 10, 12 yrs. maybe longer. I just replaced the brushes this past fall of 07, first attention it has ever needed. It's fairly quiet and cuts well for its size. Overall I give it high marks. It's not a big saw, nor is it really a small saw, which depending on your point of view might be its weakness.

Cut alotta tile with that saw, still hummin along.
