I had a cheaper Chef's Choice model that was working alright. We stored the unit in the original box, until the bottom fell out of the box last time and the unit fell to the floor. It still works but the cutting depth no longer does. I decided to start looking for a decent used commercial slicer online. This is what I ended up with. I believe it is a Bizerba SE8. We bought it from an online auction sight unseen. We just got it home, plugged it in and it works! I still need to inventory all of the parts and give this a thorough cleaning and polishing but I am pretty happy with this for $160.
