Rated 5 out of 5Â by citizen This Ridgid circular saw R-O-C-K-S!
For the money, you just can't get a better saw. I paid $110 on sale and I passed up a Makita and a DeWalt to try this one out. I don't regret it a bit. Blade adjustment couldn't be easier, the base is heavy duty with a thick edge for running down a rip guide and the kirf marks in the base are dead on. I was cutting very wet decking and she never slowed down. The 15amp motor handle the biggest jobs and that 12' power cord can't be beat. I had myself convinced I needed a $200 saw to get good results but this thing rocks! Registered it for the lifetime service so I'll never have to buy another saw again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GEOPUBLIC Not Your Average Product
I enthusiastically echo the superlatives expressed by the other reviewers. This Ridgid product is so good; so well made and thought out it is hardly believable it can be in the same price class as some of the pedestrian competing models it is being compared to; Milwaukee, Dewalt, Skil, Ryobi etc. The design for 'useability' is what I like most. It is such a pleasure to use and makes the job go so quickly I find myself looking for more reasons to use it. All saws cut wood. Not many make it a joy to do so.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Skakidalex Reliable, good priced saw.
for an every day saw I find it to be highly reliable. I really enjoy the little features they've added; like the light on the cord. the saw seems to be of solid construction, and has not let me down with it's preformance.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by WaywardPilgrim RIDGED MODEL 3205 (NOT 32022!) IMPROVED
Model 3205 is IMPROVED (over 32022, being discontinued)
IT CUTS DEEPER, has STEEPER BEVEL, smooth deck doesn't gather lodged debris, has spindle lock and has numerous ergonomic tweeking on its much venerated older sibling. (See side by side spec comparison here abouts). I've read many rave reviews for both these $99 siblings-- near indestructanle, out lived several more expensive name brands, quieter, surprisingly manageable compared to most other professional 15 amp saws. I'm looking forward to getting even better acquainted with this promisingly tweaked 3205 model. (Sold my equipment when I retired. This'll help ease a few regrets on that :)
