While I don't own one I'm confident the mafell would outperform the trion in every aspect, the question here is do you need that much performance given the price difference? While the trion may not be as feature rich as the p1cc it certainly is a premium saw, and given the price you can't really go wrong with one. While I still drool over the mafell saw, the trion does what I need very well and this way I can save my money for other drool worthy items.

Some personal conclusions, after owning multiple jigsaws, including the Trion, the Carvex, and the P1cc...If you have the space and don't require a portable jigsaw, then buy at least a 14 inch bandsaw. If you have a restricted size shop and need a "portable bandsaw" (as I do), then buy the P1cc. With the P1cc, your blades will last longer, blade change is easier, dust collection is the best of any jigsaw on the market, and most importantly - you will have more control over the cut. My P1cc appears to be built so well, that it will most likely last most my lifetime and beyond. I hope that Mafell, in the very near future, offers a tilting plate that has dust collection capability.
I have seen them too...and read the FOG uproar....funny drama.
I have a lot more information and pictures to post about the P1cc. I will make another thread if I can figure out how. In short it is very positive information for us Mafell nerds. I did a bunch more cuts, crazy curved cuts, in another 4x4 DF post. This time to see if I would get perfectly square cuts with a long Festool Carvex blade.
Teaser: The Carvex blade sucks pretty bad. Unlike my last picture posts from earlier in this thread I got perfectly square cuts with the same Bosch blade that did not yield square cuts last time...and in crazier curves...and I'm talkin' perfectly square. I guess the first time (non-square) was a result of not having the orbital action turned on. I didn't even notice because of the saws power.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.
