Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KLNH Very Well Thought Out Design
I have used many many miter saws and use them daily (as a hardwood flooring installer, among many other carpentry tasks) over the last 12 years or so. Some cheap, some expensive (including Festool Kapex) and everything in between. I won't go into deep thought or detail about this $349 saw, because I don't think it's necessary. instead I will say this, it is solid and heavy, it is presise, has every feature as a saw costing much more(and alot they don't have i.e. the front bevel lock is just so sweet, you never have to reach behind the saw, led gravity light, crown stop on the slide, brilliant). Don't procrastinate like I did for the last 5mo just order it now before they sell out of them....again . Can't wait to get the Ridgid Miter saw stand too .....

I've been In the trades and a serious diy'er for 30+ years. I had not seen this saw in person because my local HD do not stock it. About .5 hours away to pick it up-- no problem. First of all, I think that Rigid has come a long way as a brand in general the last few years. IMO, 10" slide is the sweet spot on miter saws. It was packaged very well. I followed the manual as per set up, and to my surprise, it did not need even a single adjustment. Spot on perfect. Fence, miter angles, bevels, laser, all perfect. My first trim board cuts were equally impressive. Not even a chip in my paint coat. No tear out. Not even 1 splinter. Granted, I use quality blades, but the saw is smooth. Also, I like the large platform, lower rpm motor, soft start, and the up front adjustments and locks. Yeah, I like this saw. It is a good value, and exceeded my expectations. No comparison to my previous 10" slide (m*****), which was light blue. The Rigid miter saw stand (if you need portability) is very nice too. Plus, it matches the saw color. I'm that way. I have NO affiliation withRigid or HD. Highly recommended.

I am happy with the saw overall. The laser needs an auto shut off, or only come on when a person depresses the safety lock. In the daylight laser is hard to see and is easy to leave on. I Like all of the angle adjustments in the front of the saw.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BrettMT Nice Saw
I find that this saw is well built and properly aligned right out of the box. All I had to do is mount it, plug it in. and go. With one exception. I based my decision to buy this saw on a tool review from "Popular Woodworking" magazine. One of the features that came out was it's dust collection ability through the dust port on the back of the saw head when connected to a shop vac. The rating was outstanding. So I figured that since it is a Ridgid tool that there should be no problem attaching my Ridgid shop vac to it. Not so. I can just barely get the vac hose into the port by pushing and twisting hard. And then it fell out when the saw was used. I tried use a connector designed to hook two shop vac hoses together but the connector would not go over or into the saw port. I'll be going to my local Home Depot to find something that does work.
Another feature I know I will use that I didn't know it had is the capability to cut slots across a board at a consistent depth (not a through crosscut). Two slots and some router or chisel work and you have a dado. Nice.
Other than the dust port issue, I like the saw a lot. I have not had much time to use it much, but so far I am pretty impressed.

My first miter saw I have bought. Well built and everything was square right out of the box. Would purchase another Rigid product.

For the money, you cannot go wrong. I've used this saw everyday and have not had a problem with this saw. The Diablo blade that it comes with is super sharp. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was the Laser. The Double laser is very hard to use. I wish it would of had the single laser.
