Answer: 
DeWalt did have a laser attachment and I bought one, but frankly even DeWalt figured out that it was not worth the money or the time and effort to set it up, and they quit selling it. They now have a work light attachment that does the same job, but works much better, by casting a sharp shadow line on the workpiece.

Answer: 
Sorry but Dewalt no longer builds the miter saw to accept a built in LED or Laser accessory. That was discontinued with model type 2 and the current unit is model type 3. Rather unfortunate and no clear marking on the saw packaging which was very frustrating to say the least. Best bet would be a 3rd-party unit like that made by Avenger Products or LASERKERF II. Google these and evaluate which works Read More

15 Amp 12 in. Heavy-Duty Single-Bevel Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome miter saw so far I bought this after doing a ton of research and decided against a ryobi 12" sliding miter saw that was on sale. I figured out for my use having the most accurate miter saw and one I could adjust if needed was more important than sheer cut capacity. I plan on getting a table saw which will fill in what I can't use this for and with the 12" blade you still have plenty of capacity. I really like how solid this one feels and is easy to adjust like most dewalt stuff it feels solid. The blad out of the box produces very nice cuts at least with pine. I'm just starting out my woodworking career so working with 2x4's and also doing a full house remodel so using it for some framing and probably some trim molding down the road. Overall very happy just wish I had a nice miter stand to go with it as I don't have time to build my own yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Saw works great out of the box. I was able to get a good deal on a price match as the saw was on sale at a competitor. HD was great about matching price. Very happy with the saw. Wish it had a laser, but it's very easy to line up without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw! Percect saw for me a diy'er. Was going to get the 10" but decided on the 12" instead as it can easily cut thtough a 4x4. This saw makes miter cuts,bevel cuts and compound cuts.Its a single bevel so it only leans to the left which is fine for my needs and i can always flip my boards for other cuts needed. All in all im very pleased with this saw and highly recommend it to anyone!

It's a replacement for a double-bevel Dewalt that we used for three years. Tuff saw. Light weight and easy to adjust. One problem, the louvers in the guard let debris fly through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw I've always been one of those people that thought Dewalt is junk. Like many of you, I have used every chop saw and dual compound miter saw imaginable. Years later I became a wood shop and metal shop teacher and bought a Makita LS1216L and a Dewalt rolling saw stand. That saw worked great for everything we did, but we were tired of hauling that beast out for smaller tasks where we wouldn't cut big sheets of plywood, huge 6x10's, or other big material. So we went looking for a smaller saw that would handle most small/medium tasks. After many bad experiences with other brands of 12-inch compound miter saws, we decided to buy this one. I watched this saw get day-in and day-out abuse from students who cut too fast (forced the saw through the cut) and bogged out the motor to one-half speed, started the saw with the blade touching the work, let the saw run too long, let the saw slam back to its upright position, chopped wood not against the fence, never cleaned the cutting area, or used extremely dull blades all day. I had students using pine and the saw got covered in resin and sap that hardened to amber over the next day. (Hey, I can hear you judging me fellas, I had thirty-two inner city kids in these classes [no injuries-knock on wood]). One week I had students blazing away for hours chopping hickory and pecan, leaving the saw's motor (and gearbox) hot to the touch. Long story short: you couldn't find a better field testing environment than a high school shop class. Despite this merciless abuse, this saw cut perfectly accurate. It is loud (as expected), and the brake doesn't like the kind of resharpened heavy blades I use, but nonetheless, after school, I made fine furniture with this same saw. One time, a student tried to chop through hard rock maple with 7 nails and even two 3/4" lag bolts embedded in it and this saw still managed to make a nice clean cut (with a brand new sharp blade, of course). I used it to chop and cut shoulders on giant 5 in dovetails in 8/4 Bubinga. or trimming off a 64th of the same without it drifting away...always leaving my work dead on 90 degrees. We even cut aluminum, copper, cement/concrete encrusted 2x4's, weird laminates, acrylic, you name it, this saw performed almost flawlessly. This, along with a previous good experience with the DW716 and DW717, proves to me that these saws have earned their chops for the jobsite, and Dewalt still make many very good tools. Period. I wish I could say the same about the DWS780.
