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 2 out of 5Â by Dave GOOD SAW, EXCEPT FOR PRECISION CUTTING
This saw is well made and has a strong motor with a hefty, sturdy build.
The problem lies in the base of the saw. The edges of the base are not square and cause the saw to walk around when using a cutting guide. The stamping process is faulty on the base metal piece. I had to return mine and attempted to buy another, however, after opening two other boxes, I found that both had the same problems of the base not being flat and square.
I would look elsewhere if doing finishing work. I actually had to buy the worm gear Rigid saw to find one that had square, true edges for use with a cutting guide.
