I have used an older Plasmacam table and also a state of the art Torchmate. The Torchmate software has a bit of a learning curve compared to the Plasmacam, but does work better for drawing parts if you don't have AutoCAD or Solidworks. You can get a good cut with both, it is all in the set up of the plasma torch and correct travel speed.

I have always thought if you got a CNC plasma machine you will probably almost never use the hand held torch unless you needed to cut some scrap up. I think that a dedicated machine head would probably be best/more ridgid for more accurate cuts
