I've taken a punt on the Aldi one. I'll post observations when/if it arrives.

After a little UPS snafu the saw and stand have arrived.

The saw is a rebadged Scheppach HM80MP. Comes with a 40 TPI multi material blade installed.

 

Out of the box the bevel adjust lock stops required adjustment and the laser alignment required adjusting.

 

The dual slides for the saw feel nice and smooth, no free play in them.

 

I've done a few test cuts and it seems good enough for what I need it to do.
