Thanks for sharing.  I read a few reviews prior to my TS55 purchase.  All reviews listed the Festool TS at the top/near the top.  That quality and the number of other tools that use the rails and CT sealed the deal for me.

Thanks for finding this review it is most helpful when shopping to have multiple inputs. 

The Festool track saw also was displayed on this weeks Tommy Mac's (Tommy MacDonald) woodworking TV show where he used the TS55 REQ to slice up a sheet of bamboo plywood.  The only problem is that the cross cut edges shown were ragged and he finished up all of the pieces on his table saw.  If Festool is sponsoring him on this show, they might want to provide him with a better blade for cross cutting because the cuts shown on national television were not complimentary.
