Can anyone recommend a food slicer?

I needed a food slicer primarily for cutting home cured bacon and also for slicing up some meat.
I want a good motor, and a hard edge to make sure even cuts- without the 400 dollar price tag.
I was looking at bedbathbeyond and saw a bunch of chefs choice. Does anyone have any experience with these? I have a 20% off coupon so i figured i can order from them and save some cash. They have models ranging from 100 to 400$. Would rather not the 400$ model but i will be using this alot.
Look on Craigslist for used commercial Hobarts.
I picked up a big automatic Hobart at a military auction years ago for $360.
I have the Chef's Choice model 632. If you go the their site, they have a comparison chart for their various slicers. I am happy with it, but not sure there's enough difference between it and the lower models to justify the cost.
Commercial slicers sound great, in theory, but even a small commercial slicer really isn't small at all. That being siad, if you have the room...
