15 Amp 12 in. Heavy-Duty Single-Bevel Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 151.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I needed a safe and accurate miter saw for my wood projects. Initially I purchased a Craftsman co... I needed a safe and accurate miter saw for my wood projects. Initially I purchased a Craftsman compact slider, but honestly that thing was unsafe. I next decided on a Hitachi. In the flesh the Hitachi looks ok, but the huge belt drive head made me uneasy. The Hitachi had a laser, a fine-tooth blade and was $50 cheaper but I was still nervous about reports of the belt drive shredding the head assembly. I asked the salesman about the blade included with the DeWalt 715 and he could not find any info, but a coworker said a fine tooth was included. There was also a deal that included a folding steel DeWalt saw stand for free. Neither product was made in the US. The salesman said I could get a laser or light system from DeWalt, so I decided to purchase the 715. Upon getting it home I unboxed it and checked the setup. All parts were assembled correctly and the blade was straight and true to the base. The blade is a GP style, not the fine tooth one I was told. If you are furniture making, then you will need a better blade. I tested a few cuts and while the cuts were true, the unit threw sawdust everywhere. Eventually, I was able to make a vacuum attachment using PVC pipe, but the unit still managed to throw a lot of sawdust. A bigger dust inlet and proper sized outlet (compatible for shopvacs) would greatly help this saw. There were no holdown clamps included, so I immediately ordered some from eBay. For a 12 inch saw at this price point there should be basic safety clamps included. I also noticed that the DeWalt laser and LED light systems no longer fit the 3rd gen 715. Instead of engineering a new system, DeWalt has chosen to discontinue the laser/LED accessory line. If your saw doesn't have a light from the factory, then don't expect DeWalt to supply one later. I generally drop the blade down so I can visually confirm where it will cut but a projected line would help to determine the full cut and kerf. By not allowing for this, DeWalt is designating the 715 as a rough cut saw. Since the 715 can make precise cuts, I feel DeWalt is doing a disservice to the project by not designing a light system for it. So far, I have made two outdoor chairs, a mailbox stand and various other projects with the saw. It cuts easily through 2x4 and 4x4 lumber. I can cut 4x6's if I cut and flip. The saw cuts well on my bench or on my driveway when I'm dealing with long heavy lumber. I have not used the “free” stand yet. The included blade is fine for my projects though it will shred the back side of my cuts if I go too fast. I would suggest marking the box with the included blade info. In summary, this is a good saw but I can see hints of trouble for the DeWalt company (now owned by Stanley Black & Decker). The tools are now made overseas and frequently arrive out of alignment. Frequent model changes mean accessories are not included and standard accessories won't fit anymore. Model changes make the products cheaper to manufacture but not "better" for the consumer. Since the prices have increased, this means less value to the consumer. Hopefully I won't have to use the DeWalt warranty anytime soon. I assume it's still as good as it was in the past and things haven't changed. I can't comment on warranty, but will try to amend my review if I require warranty support.

The ony reason I did not give it the best rating is that when Dewalt redesigned it, they deleted the retractable extension that was built in under the saw to support long material. That was a very good feature on the saw as it also doubled as a second handle when you moved it. With this saw and the new design of the Dewalt portable bench top saw, you can fabricate anything.

Glad I purchased the 12" instead of the 10". It was able to cut my tall 5 3/4" baseboards vertically on the saw fence with no issue. Spend extra dollars for the 12" and the DeWalt stand.
