Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
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 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 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 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 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
