Currently, I don't have a saw stand. I just build up support blocks out of scrap lumber to the height of my saw table, so almost any saw stand would be a major improvement. Portability would probably be the most important feature for me. I like the idea of having 8 feet of support on both sides of the saw, but the whole package would have to fold/slide together small enough to leave room in a small truck for nail guns, shop vac, and everything else needed on a job site. An adjustable support (maybe in T tracks)for holding crown moulding at the correct angle would also be high on my list. Weight is only an issue if I can't lift the stand into the truck. I would rather have something sturdy and well-made. Unfortunately, I can't share what I do/don't like about any particular stand, except to say that not having one can be a drag sometimes.
