Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HeirloomCustomWood Wonderful Tool
I bought this at Home Depot to replace my older saw. I am a custom wood shop so everything I do must be dead on as well having original designs. This saw is so versatile and it takes much of the eyeballing out of the equation. The lasers perform perfectly to cut a double bevel and I have not had any issues with a compound cut. The gradual spool up is great as well. If you are looking for a saw to have this is the one.

Fence isnt square to the blade and there isnt a way to adjust besides re-forging and/or re-milling the whole fence assembly. I used to be a big ridgid fan. Cant say that anymore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RenovatedHaven Possibly my favorite saw
I have used dozens of miter saws and this is one of my favorites. Prior to purchasing this one I researched many of the other brands and debated between 10 in and 12 in. In the end I settled on this one. I felt like if offered the best bang for the buck and was a solid product. I have now owned it for over a year and have used it extensively (deck building, house framing, interior trim, furniture building, plumbing (PVC cutting) etc.). Here are a few of my favorite features:
*sliding arm is smooth and accurate
*I like the LED light and laser - the laser was not dead on when I got it and needed to be adjusted but when I have lots of quick cuts the laser is a huge help.
*I think 10" blade is the perfect size for me. I think the 12" would have been over kill (bigger, heavier, and more expensive blades). Plus in a pinch I have been able to swap blades with my 10" table saw.
*The miter angle is very easy and quick to adjust - the bevel is not as quick and easy (requires a wrench) but is very manageable.
*Plenty of power - have not ran into anything yet that has posed a problem
The only Con for this saw is the dust collection bag. It is next to worthless. I sometimes hook up my shop vac and that helps.
All in all, the saw is very well designed. I highly recommend getting the mobile Ridgid Miter Saw Stand (Model # AC9945) if you plan on moving it around. The combo of saw and stand have made this saw easily my favorite saw I have owned to date.

Great saw. Love the solid feel. The dual laser lines and gravity light are very handy. Has all the customary stops for crown, etc. Also like the depth stop - can use for quick dado/rabbet. I bought the 10" since i have lots of blades and didn't want to add another size to my inventory...and this has all the capacity I'll likely ever need. The stock 40 tooth diablo cuts fine...have not needed to change out to finer blade yet (one floor and trim job so far). The saw is heavy so having a stand helps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JM Great saw for the money!
I played with several saws before purchasing this one. My first impression was this was the most solid feeling saw in its price range. The slide and movement feel solid and precise, unlike some of the others. The LED lights and laser guide are great too. Some of the adjustments don't work exactly how I initially expected, but they didn't take long to figure out (without having to crack open the manual). I've only used this for a single one day project so far, but fairly certain I won't have any regrets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jrd Very nice
Unit is built very well you get a lot of features for the money the selling point for me is that you actually get a Diablo blade with it. I like all the miter and bevel controls up front. Slider is nice and smooth. Highly recommend this saw

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JSSMITH Awesome miter saw
Shopped around, best value by far. Definitely a professional grade saw. Other manufacturers should take notice. I bought the stand with it, what an amazing pair. I'm able to do extremely high quality finish work with this saw right outta the box with very little effort. I did upgrade the blade to an 80 tooth, same blade brand for my finish work.
