Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Christopher It's a work horse
We bought probably 5-6 of these saws for an apartment complex framing & cornice job, 8-3 story buildings and a clubhouse. We averaged 50 hour weeks, 5 crews running for 6 months. The only saw we burned up was the dedicated siding saw, and even then I suspect that it was because we didn't switch out blades as often as we should have and the guy cutting really abused his saw.
We abused these saws pretty hard, but for an average user, especially a rough carpenter, this is plenty enough saw to get it done.

I have an older Dewalt skill saw and a battery driven Dewalt Skill saw.
The old one was a few hundred miles away so I had to buy another one for a job that was to tough for the battery version. I was very impressed with how smooth the new one was and would clearly recomend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pancho2011 Great Saw!
I had been looking for a saw like this for at least two years.. I finally really needed it to do a small project on the house. Man right out of the box it was very lightweight but also felt like a quality product. using it is so easy. I do wish it had an led light like some other saws have.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NewLowesCustomer Garbage out of the box
I purchased this saw about 1 hour ago. The very first cut deviated by 1/2" over 6".
I checked the blade alignment and found that the blade and the straight reference mark were off by just under 10 degrees.
This is not an adjustable setting, it is a manufacturing failure.
So now I need to pack it up and drive back to the store to return it then drive to Lowes and try a Bosch. I just hope they are not made in the same Chinese factory.

Just redid my large 12 by 24 foot 2 story deck and this saw performed flawlessly. Work for every application I needed it to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JacktheKnife Excellent Quality & Easy to Handle/Use
I am so impressed with the tool. Not only does it have a lever to lock the spindle to change blades, it feels balanced in your hand as you use it. There is no "travel" back & forth from your cut line. If you have to use it left handed & not use both grips, it is very smooth & easy to control. The guide is straight forward. The blade that comes with the saw is multi-purpose & I have found it acceptable for many uses. I have used these type saws for 45 years & this one is the most impressive I have purchased! Best of all is the blade guard does not bind (like most other saws) when starting from an angled edge.

I purchased this saw after looking at numerous cordless models and am glad I did! Quality construction, easy to handle and much more quite in operation than the older saw I have been using for years.
