Default Mat cutters: Altos vs Logan vs Fletcher ?

I'm looking to buy a personal use mat cutter, and the following seem
to have what I need and be in the right price range.
Alto's 4505
Logan 450+
Fletcher MatMate 40"

They're all in the $150 range. Any comments on their relative merits?
(Or any others to consider?)

Fletcher. I'm surprised they offer something in that range. Their pro
grade cutters are the standard of the industry.

I would look at a cutter big enough to cut 30x40 inch sheets, then you
save money on board. I have a smaller Logan which will not accept this
size board and it becomes a hassle.

All 3 of these will take a full sheet of mat board.

Consider the design of the cutter and over-all size. IIRC the
Altos has, in my mind, a more functional design. Also, due to it's
pass through capability ANY size sheet may be sized. You
may beat $100 shopping eBay. Dan
