I have the Ryobi and it has done me well. I wouldn't mind an upgrade now though. I think it is an excellent starting drill press.

I got a nice sturdy 12 speed/16mm chuck press similar to the carbatec model from somebody in the trading post for $100. It goes very well and should keep going for a long time yet. I'd go second hand in your position.
PeterThe other day I described to my daughter how to find something in the garage by saying "It's right near my big saw". A few minutes later she came back to ask: "Do you mean the black one, the green one, or the blue one?".

Here is mine all setup
I did have a problem when installing the chuck, put a hole through the table. So if you buy one use a block of wood to spread the load when pushing down to install the chuck!

I would go the carbatec if you have the bench space. I just killed my Ryobi trying to cut some rossettes . The Ryobi served me well but has now been semi-retired to a permanent spindle sanding function. Now that I have the Carbatec I know what I have been missing....power, accuracy, speed range, drilling capacity to name a few. Good luck with your choice.
