Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
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 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 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
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Accurate Doesn't lock at the indents therefore causing inaccurate angles (including 90 degree). This is not good for precision cabinet building. January 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw !!!!!!! I bought this on a whim. Sale price was very affordable. If you do angle cuts this is a must. Now I'm eager to do more projects. Makes doing a project easier and quicker. I even made a table for this saw to sit on. December 31, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It looks like a good quality machine I have not used this machine yet, but from what I can see it is very compatible with brand names that are twice the price or more than this one. I use woodworking tools every day in my business and would buy more of this type tool without question. December 24, 2013
