Just bought my 3rd Porter Cable Biscuit Jointer. Takes about 5 years of heavy use to wear one out. While not perfect.... for my needs as a woodworker, it stands head and shoulders above the other brands. The only improvement I would beg for is to make the round dust port the same size as a standard shop vacuum hose. I keep a a Fein Vacuum hooked to mine all the time.... but takes some rigging with rubber adapters.
Pros: Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Long-Lasting
Cons: easy of dust collection attachment

Porter Cable does it again

As with all Porter Cable tools I've ever purchased, I'm very pleased with the rugged, contractor grade quaility of this tool. The ability to quickly dial in the correct depth setting for Porter Cable brand biscuits, as well as several other widely produced sizes is a huge plus. The reason for the 4/5 rating was that it can be difficult to align the cutter with the fence in the less often used 90 degree position (used for cutting into the face as opposed to the side of a board). The red mark that shows the position of the cutter is covered when the face is in this position, but it hasn't proven to be much of a problem for me as I am normally joining boards on their sides as part of a glue-up, and this tool has excelled in all of those situations.

Fantastic Plate Joiner

This is the only plate joiner I am aware of that has a D-handle that is independent of the plunge action of the joiner. This allows the user to grip the handle firmly against the work, then plunge the cutter into the work while holding the joiner firmly in place. I really appreciate this unique feature.
The dust collection bag works very well, but I prefer to connect the joiner to my dust collector. The dust collector keeps the joiner's dust chute clear. Joiners produce a lot of saw dust, so the dust bag will fill quickly and can lead to a clogged dust chute if not changed fairly often.
The plunge action is very smooth.
I love the fence on this unit, and the fine height adjustment works beautifully. This is a very high precision tool and it's really solidly built. It handles all of the standard biscuit sizes plus Porter-Cable's super small FF biscuits.
I highly recommend it.
