New Planer questions...

I'm thinking of buying a planer for some shelves and other projects. Searching the archives of this forum I've seen lots of good positive things about the Delta models especially the 22-580 - 13" 2 speed finishing planer. For light use would the Delta TP305 12.5" portable work as well? I like the ~$200 price of the smaller unit but not want to save money only to have it cost me more in material and hassles.

Any other brands to look at or things to look for? I'm hoping to stay in the $200-$350 range and be a portable style.

I use the Ridgid 13" planer in my shop, and have had excellent results from it. May want to check into one of these as well. I got mine as a recon from the orange big box for under $200, but retail is a little higher.
