Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for the money Laser guide is useless outside in bright sunlight , work OK in dimmer light. Blade was not perfectly square with table. Good overall value for the money. Not the tool for precision cabinetry work, but fine for average do it yourselfer. April 7, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good value The cutting and movement are fine but the adjustments and support bars etc. are pretty cheap. The laser light didn't even last one day on the batteries and it wasn't even on that much. Overall it's easy to use and serves my needs for larger lumber cuts. April 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok Saw I was a little disappointed that this saw doesn't make a complete cut. I always had 1/2 inch that didn't get cut. I tried to adjust it but couldn't get a complete cut all the way through. That was pretty annoying due to having to finishing cutting by hand which left my crown molding jagged at the ends. Other than that the saw is good. August 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleased! Worked like a charm! This saw seems to be very durable and it got the job done! January 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great so far Used it today for the first time. this cut through 4x4s like it was butter. The Lazer was very helpful. Its not 100% spot on accurate (maybe 99%) but it really speeds up your cut. I do weekend table building projects and this is perfect. I couldn't be happier with the product and it's a good price. Would recommend. February 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Machine Very good machine, plenty of power. Have had no issues with the angle and lock up. I am not easily impressed but this one runs with the high dollar ones. February 18, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good value while I like the saw, the laser feature is poorly implemented. Why use a battery powered laser that you have to turn on/off at a switch? All other saws I know have the laser come on when you start on the saw. Also, laser is in a place where it gets covered in sawdust. If wood is damp (like treated wood often is) the laser gets blocked quickly. Spend a lot of time cleaning the lens. January 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Couldn't get the blade to square. Bought this because the price was so low. I guess you get what you pay for here, because I couldn't get the blade to square. I ended up retuning it and paying nearly double for a Hitachi that is fantastic. Save yourself the trouble and invest in a good quality tool, not this. January 14, 2014
