Bought the Rigid 10" miter and returned it. Couldn't adjust the laser to 100% accuracy. Bought the Dewalt and love the size, quality and out of the box accuracy. I have rehabbed over 1200 houses and own dozens of power tools. There is no substitute for quality no matter if you use a tool 1x a year or everyday. Dewalt, Milwaukee and Bosch want to make a better tool, price is secondary. Hitachi, Rigid & Porter Cable want to make inexpensive tools where price is first and quality second. If price is an issue wait and buy the Dewalt it's well worth the extra cost.

I bought this saw because I just bought a new house, and I needed a miter saw to do molding and flooring cuts. Set up on this was super simple - open the box, remove the saw, plug in the saw, use the saw. The blade and cuts were true with no adjustment needed - both straight cuts, as well as the miters and bevels. For the non-pro diy homeowner, this is an amazing saw, at an amazing price, and will get you up and cutting quickly.
My only advice would be to double check the maximum cut carefully against what you're going to need. Dead straight, it will chop a 2 x 6 with no issues, but on the miter and bevel cut, it can't reach all the way across the board. That was fine for me, as I will mostly be using it on 2 x 4 stock, which is why I bought the saw, but if you need to cut larger boards regularly, you may need to step up to the 12" saw, or the slider.

I have a 12 slider and needed something smaller for the house for small projects and this fit the bill great right out of the box

i just bought this saw a couple of days ago and it is amazing. this saw cuts 2x4's like a hot knife through butter. it came perfectly square right out of the box, and the blade that came with it was great as well. for the price, this saw can not be beat. it even cut a 4x4 smoothly. which surprised me. the dust collection collects about 7/8's of the dust leaving me with very little clean up to do. if you have to get a smaller portable saw. this saw is the right one for you!
and no i do not work for home depot.

Saw here at home depot, saved to shopping list but picked up new at a closeout elsewhere for $70 less. High quality, outstanding saw. Does exactly what its supposed to do within it's specs. Out of the box, it was just 1/16 of an inch off but thats what the adjuster is for and took less than 5 seconds to fine tune with a square. If i could give it a 10 star rating, i would. Great tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClassicGarage The Best Miter Saw I've Ever Owned
I love woodworking, and before my wife bought me this saw, I did all of my cutting by hand, and by hand I mean miter box and hand saw. It was a great workout, and after many failed attempts I did start to get strait square cuts. After my wife got me this a year ago, I think I’ve only used my hand saw once. I use it for almost everything, from 4x4’s to 1x2’s and even some crown molding for some bookshelves I made one. With the vacuum attachment dust collection is a snap, my work and work area stays clean and safe. With the Precision Track and Stop System also from Home Depot, I can break the golden rule of cutting, measure once cut once, or twice, of 10 times. It’s a perfect saw if you love woodworking and are just getting started.

The Miter saw was a synch. Took out of the box and it was basically ready to go. Great product and a great price. Thank you

I bought the saw 12 years ago after a 2year old Hi***hi saw lost its accuracy. I am a pro and most of the guys I work with have one of these and use it as their go to saw. The 10 inch slide is great for wider cuts but not one saw I used in the past 25 years has come close to the precision found on this one. I probably will buy another for a backup if mine ever does puke. Awesome saw!!
