I have a PRL lift but, the plate is essentially the same. The only thing I could find wrong with it (if you want to call it that) is that the side plungers chipped the side of the opening a tiny fraction when I was lifting the plate out to do some maintenance . This is a real stretch in calling this a problem and I filled the itty-bitty chips with a bit of epoxy the next time I had some mixed up for something. The occurrence could have been avoided if I had known to expect it. I have removed the lift a few times since without issue simply by lifting out the side that does not have plungers on it, first.
The chipping was undoubtedly due to the Rockler melamine coating on the top of the table I am using. My local Rockler had the top on sale including the fence and a plate (which I gave to dear old dad) for $80 and it just seemed too easy, so I got it. I enlarged the hole to fit the PRL and my base has plenty of support structure so sagging is a non-issue. The plate accepts the twist rings which I like. I have the aluminum set from way-back-when so I cannot speak to the PC-ABS ones that they now use. I will say that having the whole set allows me to tune the opening for what I am doing which improves dust collection and stock support.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
