***TWO THUMBS UP***
After many hours researching online, I came across this Dewalt Table Saw at my local home depot and completely felt in loved with it! The main thing that convinced me to buy this saw is the rack and pinion fence. Many, if not all of the other contractor table saws have a fence that rides on rails which causes the back of the rail to be dis aligned.
In my case, I'm not planning to move my table saw out of my shop so I built a pretty cool table that extends the work surface allowing me to work on bigger pieces.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJ Great quality saw
I bought this saw to upgrade from my current compact saw but my budget was too tight for the saw I really wanted with a 30" rip capability.
The fence system on this saw is dead nuts accurate and rock solid. The fence was my absolute biggest priority when buying a table saw.
Without buying a $300+ fence system this is by far the best out of the box fence system hands down.
Also out of the box the blade and fence required very little adjusting for alignment.
Assembling the accessories and safety features was fairly easy.
If you need a saw that you can lug around by hand and make fast accurate cuts but can't afford the higher price point saws or don't have room for a shop/cabinet saw I'd recommend this saw.
My only disappointment is the fact that this saw can not use dado blades of any kind.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rob Required constant calibration, adjustment, and couldn't cut straight.
I really wanted to like this table saw. But after over two months of use and even after installing a 60 tooth finishing blade, I had to return it. The fence required continuous adjustment as did the riving knife. There are a lot of innovative features and I like the adjustment knob for the fence but the aluminum rails are not strong enough to hold up heavier pieces of wood extending further beyond table and begin to sag. Other table saws use sturdier systems or simply adjustable extensions of the table itself. The aluminum rails and aluminum fence are not an adequate substitute. The 10-inch blade that comes with this is also far inferior to the blades offered with other table saws like the Bosch or Porter Cable 10 inch job site models. I got constant kickbacks no matter how slowly I went or close o the top of the wood I adjusted it, it seemed like it would always grab the last inch of the wood and splinter/chew up the corner.
I was using this to rip and Crosscut two by fours, two by sixes, and plywood for shelving in my garage and a bunk bed for my kids, and I have a pile of scrap wood now from the consistently crooked and skewed cuts made by this table saw or the fence falling out of alignment. Even using the saw to make simple jigs became an absurd chore. I tried torquing all the screws accurately, I tried using thread Locker, and it still felt like the fence or blade were moving all over the place after a couple cuts. The Mitre gauge was completely useless and made of plastic, compared to every other model in the store that uses one made of steel. It couldn't hold an angle with a large piece of wood to save its life. I was also surprised at how crummy the dust collection laws even with a large shop vac hooked up to it.
I ended up shelling out some extra money and got the Bosch model. I haven't had any of the same problems with it. I strongly considered the porter cable and a couple other models as well. The DeWalt has a lot of neat features that need a lot of refinement before I would ever consider this again. They can start by ditching the aluminum on the fence and extension rails for steel.

I bought this table saw as an impulse buy and i have to say I have zero regrets. Relative new to wood working, spend the last week on vacation out in the shop having fun. The main thing that turning me on to this saw is the rack and pinion fence adjustments front and back which takes the guess work out of having a perfectly straight fence no matter where you clamp it down. Everything on this saw is adjustable so if anything moves over time you can easily redial in everything.
Out of the box the only thing i had to adjust was the measuring stick line which was off by 1/16th of an inch. Grab a piece of scrap and dial in that measuring stick mark, it will make making precious cuts super quick. The fence was preset accurately from the factory for both the inside and outside position (the saw has 2 measuring sticks and 2 fence positions, one reaches from 0-21 and the other from 4 to 25 inches. Be aware the maximum cut depth is 24 1/2 if i remember correctly aka the measuring this goes past what the fence can adjust to)
The miter function was preciously set from the factory. I did a bunch of test cuts when i dialed in the measuring stick at both 0 and 45 degree angles.
The manual is VERY detailed. Perfect if this is the first time you are ever using a table saw.
The blade it comes with is pretty good for a stock blade but i recommend you invest in an 80 tooth Diable blade if you plan on cutting plywood.
From what i have measured, both my miter slots are perfectly aligned. There is a tiny variation in miter slot width though. From what i have measured my miter slots vary from 0.768 to 0.770 width which is pretty darn good considering this saw does not have a cast iron table.
The only 2 down sides i can really think off are:
-There is no place to store the miter gauge on the saw (everything else has a place where you can lock it down if you are transporting the saw
-The miter gauge rail is none adjustable and has way too much play to the point where i would consider it almost useless

Quality tool. Eased my hardwood floor project. Fence rail is smooth and precise through adjustment. Very sturdy overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by indel Good saw
Internet order, received in store. On time! The saw is very good: the right rip of 24 1/2 inch, motor runs smoothly, not noisy. The cut, with the supplied blade, was like I used a 90 teeth blade. Fence is parallel with the blade, I made a thiner than 1/8 stripe of wood. It is not very heavy, I can carry it (I am 71yo) and is very stable on a table. I like it very much.
