At 250, I don't know if i could really pass this one up, even if it turns out to be disposable in the long run. I wish I knew someone that has run the Tanaka saws to give me some info on them.
For $250 I would go for it. Amazon has three reviews for this saw. For a 50cc saw, it may be worth the risk if you are cutting big wood. I personally use a Stihl and love it
