This is a terrific value for the money. It performs as well if not better than other brands costing up to twice as much. It is easy to use and has safety first features. Do not see why anybody would want a non-sliding mitre saw (that most others sell for about same as this) when they can have this one.
The saw is ok - cuts are straight and miters are fairly tight. The laser is difficult to see when using outdoors, even in the shade. My biggest gripe is the sorry plastic "handle" on this saw. After finishing a job the other day, I picked up the saw by the "handle" which pulled apart from where it is attached to the motor housing. Half the screws stripped out of the motor housing and the other half broke through the upper handle's plastic. I have been trying to get replacement parts through parts direct, but the motor handles are backordered for a month! I imagine they replace a lot of these handles. If you buy one of these saws, be sure and not use the handles as handles. Pick up the saw from under the base.
Everything has worked great. Only problem is the bag doesnt catch any of the sawdust.

This is a pretty great saw for the money. Lots of power. Blows right through hard woods. Really only problem with it accuracy. The laser is pretty much useless but I'm not too concerned with that as I am with the miter adjustments. The stops at your common angles like 90 and 45 have way too much play in them. You make a quick adjustment to 90 degrees and start cutting and you can see that it's clearly off. You can get it to cut more accurately but it takes time to dial it in which can be incinvient. Over all pretty pleased with this saw.
The amount of plastic on this saw is overwhelming. Anything that is metal is very thin with some burrs here and there. The mounting holes aren't circular and it doesn't look like it was designed that way. The sawdust collection is a joke. The miter gauge is applied with a decal. There is a lot of play in the saw even when fully tightened. It does cut nicely but I don't see this saw lasting a very long time.
Blade is not straight so you will never get a straight cut.
Not a trusted name brand product anymore.
