Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mulehide Would not fit.
Would not fit my DW715 saw even though the product info claims it is designed for it. Had to return it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Corey Does not work with the newest version on the DW715
Contrary to what it says on the packaging, this does not work with all DW715 miter saws. The newest version of the DW715 is series 3, and this is incompatible with it. It doesn't say that anywhere on the packaging, and you can't tell which version of the saw you have until you look at the saw itself. I contacted DeWalt and they confirmed this. They don't have a solution at this point and they say they are working on a new laser, but as of now, nothing.
I'm very disappointed in both DeWalt and Home Depot for selling a product with inaccurate and misleading labeling, especially since it's been pointed out and they are aware of it.

Works great, was easy to install. This was a great add on to my DW718 saw. It should be standard to all DeWalt Miter Saws. Set up and calibration was easy once you visualize the movements of the three adustments. Went very smooth and is very accurate. Makes work so much easier. I am extremely happy with this item. I really like that it is on alll the time not just when you start the saw like some tools, made it easy to get my work lined up first. The only issue is in bright sun, you have to shade it to see it. Even this was not really a big issue. Highly recommend to everyone as an essential piece of equipment.

Helps in aligning where you are going to cut. Simple to install and adjust.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JML15 Didnt work with Dewalt Miter Saw 716
I am sure this is a great product, but couldnt use it on my Dewalt Miter Saw DW716. Before you purchase this laser or the LED work light, look at the top of the yellow handle on your miter saw. If you have a small rectangular access panel with two screws that attach it to the yellow handle (should be right next to the black handle you can lift the saw with), then the laser and the worklight is compatible with your miter saw. If you do not have an access panel like mine then you are out of luck for these products.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by buffalo19 The laser system is a little tough to install but when adjested it works great!
The DW7187 Laser System has been a nice addition to my saw. At first it was quite tricky to get the components installed correctly. There is only one way for the wires to fit in the saw well and it took some time to figure that out before I could get everything to fit together well. I got everything together and at first it did not work. I took everything apart peice by peice and found a missing connection on the handle peice which got the ball rolling.
From there the adjustment mechanism was a little tricky to figure out but once dialed in it's a real gem. Just one more way that I can save time on building my projects and be even more precise too! Great product, just a little rocky on installation and adjustment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RebuildingANewHouse Almost perfect
Very easy installation and adjustment. The built-in power connections are terrific. The only improvement I would like to see, and this may just be a personal preference, is the ability to aligh the laser to MATCH the kerf. You can adjust it to the right or the left of the kerf, and this works, but I have another, much more difficult to mount and align, laser that does this and it is ideal in almost every cutting situation. Ofcourse this would require relocating tjhe laser to behind the blade.
The laser is bright and clear, and easy to use as well.

The laser is very poorly made ! I love dewalt and 95% of my tools are dewalt, That is the reason I bought this until when it came out. I mounted, it worked OK, it was a little off and I had to adjust it, no biggie. However, I bumped it threw it off, had to readjust it. I could not some thing inside came loose and it became a paperweight ! Dewalt really FAILED on this item. I replaced it with their light, which I am VERY happy with ! Save your money and don't buy the laser OR buy the light with goes in its place.
