Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Surfdog Great tool for a amateur or pro
I have never used a miter saw my only experience has been with a standard circular saw that I occasionally use. I found it to be very accurate and easy to use. I was able to easily shave material from pieces that were fractionally too long. So far I used the saw to cut a variety of pieces including some very small delicate pieces The XPS feature was great in marking exactly where the cut would fall. The instructions very good and understandable in outlining all the parts and how to operate the saw. Well worth the money and came with a free stand, I look forward to doing many home projects myself as opposed to trying to hire a dependable contractor avoiding the bid process and then hoping the person I hired will show up when the promised, not leave my home mess and with hours of touch up and detail work to do after they finish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KCM Great deal NOW if you are trying to decide on a larger saw!
This is a large miter saw and if it was not heavy it no doubt would get lesser reviews concerning durability. Along with the stand it is a package that handles the larger jobs, and with the best led blade guide that I have used so far, is still capable for the very detailed work. My saw was off by a half degree that was noticeable on stair treads that I am cutting but usually a check of all your settings is the first thing that should be done anyhow. I also liked the detent override.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MAHByTheSea Recieved used saw
Inspect the items received very carefully as I received a used saw. The packaging was in very poor condition and the saw had sawdust on it. There was also a paper clip attached to the dust port to hold the 2 sides of the rubber together so they wouldn't rub on the fence. I doubt the paperclip was a Dewalt certified part installed at the factory. I would have kept the saw but the left side of the fence was not square with the table which is probably why the saw was a return in the first place. I would be very disappointed to find out this deal was a good way to get rid of returned items.

This not only is a heavy duty saw but it is also heavy. Weighs a lot. Not a weekend toy. I have used this saw extensively and am very satisfied. As a professional journeyman carpenter and cabinetmaker I have used many different chop saws (power miter saws) but never one that could cut a 6" x 6" clean in one pass and be accurate on compound angles cutting 3-tier crown moldings, dental molding, casing and 3-piece base.
The LED light projects from the top of the blade shining down onto the material casting a perfect, crisp shadow line of where the blade is going to cut. No aligning lasers, replacing batteries, etc. and it has it's own "on-off" switch.
The stand is excellent as well. Great for long pieces of material. Although it has a carry handle, it is still a heavy stand. Going into the job site I would recommend a wheeled cart because the saw is too heavy to carry any distance but like I said, "It is not a toy."

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bison Very good combo deal
Very good combo deal when you can get the stand for free. Both are very good quality and very useful. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 b/c of the amount of room the saw takes up with the slide rails. I was going to purchase the Bosch because of the smaller footprint, but I could not resist the free stand.
