Gavin, if your cutting a lot of board and multiples then I would agree that the panel saw is probably quite a bit faster, with mine once the guides were set I could cut a few sheets at a time and they all came out exactly the same size but I don’t do as much work now.
The other advantage is that if you have a decent saw and a selection of blades you can cut a wider range of substrates.
If you have made yourself a custom bench for cutting couldn’t you make yourself something that would be just as good as a vertical saw frame??
Probably right to exclude the guillotine as an option if space is an issue as it will take up more space than a vertical saw and be difficult to move.
