thickness planers

I am planning on buying a thickness planer. I have been looking at the new Delta and DeWalt 12 1/2" planers, with the cutter head lock. I have not yet been able to find any comparison test but I have read, and they say, that the locking feature greatly reduces snipe. I can also get a very good deal on a Jet 12 1/2" planer, but it does not have the lock. Do you know if the locking feature really does reduce snipe? Thanks Ed Gydas
