What plasma cutter to buy?

I'm looking for a plasma cutter for my home garage. I was thinking about the east wood unit. That is about all my budget can stand. Is this a good unit for the money or should I look for some other brand used?

I have the versa cut 40, I got it cheap from a friend that bought it and it was not big enough for his liking. It works good and has cut up to 3/16 is as big as I have cut with it. I tried it on the 110 side and it works ok. But I prefer to use 220 and run it at 60 lb air and the power at max. Seems to cut cleaner cuts there. Its good for the small stuff I use it on 18 Ga. and 16 Ga. and angle that is 3/16 thick. Have not tried it on anything thicker. I bought longer cutting nozzles from a guy on ebay so I could see where it was cutting and my cut lines were easier to follow which made for straighter cuts. Hope this helps.
