Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by woodman great mitre saw
This is a good sturdy saw, haved used it to cut many 2x4 and crown moulding. I have put this saw through the paces, banged it up quite a bit and yet still stays true. I often do framing with this saw by cutting two studs at a time. Often hit the side guard loading them on in a hurry, it has never cracked. Cut strapping quickly, 4 at a time. The hold down is beefier than any mitre saw on the market. Cutting crown moulding is a breeze with positive stops. Easy to change from constuction blade to fine cutting blade. Perfect orientation of handle. Fits my ridgid mitre saw stand perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bdairhart Solid Review for the Dewalt 12" Mitre Saw
The Dewalt 12" mitre saw has proven to be a 5 Star tool in my books. In my profession, Trim Carpentry, we operate our saws from 7:00am until 5:00pm daily so reliable, portable, tools are key. I've been using the dewalt saws for a number of years now and have never been disappointed with my purchases. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Absolutely, I personally own three saws for my trim crews and one for my woodworking shop.

True to Dewalt's history, this tool is an excellent combination of performance and value. I would recommend an upgraded blade for finishing work (80 tooth cross-cut).

I just got this saw and it's the best saw I have ever used yet. Can't say enough good things about it, overall you need to try it and see for yourself; It's great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by metrooba1 Good quality, worth of extra money
Debating between green and yellow miter, but glad I got the yellow, the accessory crown holding is a must with $25, really help me for crown moulding, loving it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Great saw! Poor dust collection.
Great saw! Smooth gliding table & accurate cuts and angles! Very strong and sturdy. Dust collection is quite poor. I feel that Dewalt could have done much better in this area. Only collects about 50% of the dust.

Out of the box, this saw had two major issues: the upper part of the left fence leaned forward, causing a gap between the wood and the lower part of the fence and misalignment, and the rotating table was noticeably lower than the stationary part of the wood support, causing the wood to not be supported above the rotating table, the area where the cuts are made.
The lady at DeWalt that took my call didn't really understand what the problems were, put me on hold to confer with someone else and then proceeded to give me a no-sense answer. When I asked her to connect me with somebody that understands miter saws, she hung up on me! This was the first and last purchase of a DeWalt product for me.
Home Depot refunded me without any hassles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DewaltFan Works as expected!
I've been waiting for one of these Dewalt saws to go on sale and I finally pulled the trigger when I saw this one was. I've only done a couple of small jobs with it so far, (chair rail, wall frames) but have been very pleased with it so far. I did install an 80-tooth blade since I was doing finish work, and both blades work well. Good, clean cuts, minor blemishes, but I attribute that to the blade. Very pleased overall. Would buy again.
