Delta 46-460 midi lathe - still a good buy?

Has anyone purchased one of these lathes recently?  I read the FW review that praises this model, but also found many posts in other venues reporting poor customer service by Delta.  Problem is, all these articles and posts are 4+ years old and seemed to coincide with a sale of the company.   What is the current story?  Are the recently manufactured machines still good performers?  Has customer service improved?

I'm not sold on Delta and would appreciate recommendations on alternatives.  

Thank you for any comments.
