I just went through this analysis and almost pulled the trigger on the Dewalt LC1230. In the end because of budget I bought a Harbor Freight 4x6 band saw. I like it but wouldn't recommend it for a production shop.
The benefits of a dry cut saw: Fast, easy to get it to cut square without a lot of fuss. Downsides: Noise, the curly q chips that get everywhere, blade cost
The benefits of a good bandsaw: can stack/bundle stock to be cut to get everything cut at once, all to the same angle. Quiet, not a lot of mess. Better at cutting small shapes like gussets and such. Some saws will also convert to a vertical band saw, doing double duty. The bad: it can be slow if not bundling, it can be a hassle to get it set up to cut straight (mostly with the cheaper chinese made saws), May need to change bands for different thicknesses of materiel, takes up much more space in the shop.
Having said all that for the $199 I paid for my 4x6 band saw at HF, it was a good investment for the money. I am pretty happy with it. If I had a bigger shop and more money I would get an Ellis or a Wells saw.
