Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeanKeady Perfect tool for your collection
I love this quality tool and I can see why there is a life-time warranty. I worked this Miter Saw hard with Crown Molding and Floor Molding cuts and it is accurate, durable, reliable and delivers exactly what Ridgid promises. I love Ridgid tools!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chevyguy65 GREAT SAW
Ive had this saw for 5+years!!! Not A problem with it what so ever. Cut many many feet of hardwood trim , Vinyl siding, pvc pipe. 2x4's , you name it!!!! Square up the blade when you first set this saw up and use the miter gage and every cut dead on. This thing takes a lot of abuse and keeps going. I would buy another one in a heart beat if I had to +++++

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ReschkaLLC Great Miter Saw!
I have used many Miter saws, This is my first Miter saw that i have purchased. Its not to heavy to bring from job to job and the laser light works great after you adjust it to where you know where its going to cut.
I setup my own support on each side with a 2x4 on its side. works great as well.
I also have a rigid vacuum that i have hooked up to it when I'm cutting a lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Best saw for the price!
Some of these reviews are lame. Let me start by saying the release pin is in the same place its in on every saw...... I first bought the Hitachi for 139.99 on sale at Lowes. I NEVER shop there but I figured I was a bit low on funds and wanted something I figured was decent. NOT! I had it for three days before coming across the Ridgid. At HD. Its by far better than any other saw out there. Infact almost all my tools are either Milwaukee or Ridgid. Mostly the later. They are made in the U.S. w/ mostly American parts. Now onto the saw. The laser is set to the left for a reason. So that you can make your cut to the left. But if you know what you're doing the laser is simply a guide. Also, I love the fact you make the cut in the base plate. The miter positions are tightly held by the grooves. Hitachi's positions are loose and can ruin your cuts. last but not least. Dewalt is OVER rated and doesn't compare to Ridgid when it comes to anything! Ridgid and Milwaukee are the only way to go!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy Better than expected
I have always believed you get what you pay for. There were several saws that had great reviews but hundreds of $$ more. I was on a tight budget and thought I would give it a try. The cost doesn't apply here on this saw. For less than $200, I am seeing the same kind of quality of the $400 saws. Install a tongue and grove ceiling and the cuts matched perfectly right from the box. Light weight and extremely tough for hard jobs.

Strong, Accurate, Light Weight, Durable 10" miter saw.
Excellent price when I bought mine.
I have 15 years carpentry/building experience and I use this saw currently on most of my finish work; I recommend it.
This is a great 10" saw.

0 degree throat plate is great for helping you support trim work. I got this saw as an upgrade from my beginning saw...
This saw will cut up to a 2 by 6 easily!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JW78 Returned two of them...
This was my first miter saw purchase and I used it frequently for a couple of weeks.
First, the pros: The saw has plenty of power and sliced through my 2x lumber like butter. It feels sturdy and the dust collection worked better than I expected. The bevel adjustment was easy to use and bevel cuts were nice.
Problems: I'll start with my biggest complaint.
The table is not even across the top. The circular part of the table that rotates for miter cuts, is roughly 1/16 higher than the left and right side of the table. This causes the wood to flex just slightly, especially when you have it clamped down. It may not seem like a huge problem, but it was definitely affecting my straightness of my cuts. I emailed tech support about this issue and was told that I should exchange it for another one, so I assumed I just had a defective unit. When I did exchange it though, I found that the replacement was exactly the same. I figured it must just be the way it's designed. I returned the second one and bought a competitors model instead and sure enough the table is smooth and flush all the way across. Some other issues I noticed:
My 90 degree cuts were coming out just slightly concave. I tuned the saw and tried two different blades with the same result.
The sliding fence was not flush with the fixed fence and I could find no adjustments for this, so I just didn't use the sliding part.
The miter adjustment uses a knob to tighten it down and when cutting miters I found that tightening the knob caused the table to creep a few degrees over. This also made it difficult to cut a miter that was close to one of the miter stops because the miter gague wanted to fall into place at the stops when you try to tighten the knob.
The degree markings for miter are printed on a very thin piece of aluminum that seems to be stuck to the saw with adhesive and also a few very small rivets. After just a few days parts of this strip were losing adhesion and popping up in places. This could be especially problematic over the long term as this is the only way to determine your angle for miters.
It seems like a few minor design flaws ruined this saw for me.
