Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by iwork2ski Rough Cuts
This saw was very easy to set up. The problem with the saw is that it makes rough cuts, like little nicks in the surface of the tile. Also having problems when cutting 45's, the tips break off. I tried taping the tile were my cut was and tried feeding the tile slowly. Neither helped. This is not my first tile saw, but my first Ridgid. I am a Ridgid fan, but I cannot recommend this saw.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wpd219 This product is simple to use
This saw is easy to assemble and set up. I like having the option for a stand. The saw also has the great adjustable base to help you cut 45 and 22.5 degree angles. I wish it had a water hose hook up so you did not have to fill it up or worry about it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jk Update on my previous review "Saw drops into sliding table"
Since my review on July 12, 2016 on the saw dropping on the table with angle cuts, the company took the initiative to contact me to pick up my saw to find solutions to the problem. I am very pleased that Ridgid stands behind their product and wants to improve their product. I am sure they could fix the problem because their R4092 10" saw that I am looking at does not have the problem.
To hold the saw head in place for the cut depth, the 7" saw has a bolt you tighten which rely on friction to hold it in place. In a wet slippery vibrating environment, the frictional forces can sometimes be overcome.
On the 10" R4092, the saw head is held in place by a bolt through an adjustable slot on the frame. As one tightens the bolt, it elongates and the tensile strength of the steel bolt compresses the head mechanism against the adjustable slot. Tighten enough, there is zero possibility for it to work loose. There is also a depth stop.
I changed the Value component and my overall rating because the company is willing to improve their product. I am looking forward to their improvements.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tilelady So easy a girl can use it .
Just finished a job using this model. I found it easy to use, cuts clean, and the fence definitely helped with not only keeping my cuts straight, it helped to keep my measurements on the nose. I like this saw a lot

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlegriaCreations lots power in a compact wet saw
I work with back splash and small bathrooms every day and i depend on my tools to make my job easier and precise. The Rigid Tile saw does just that. The Rigid wet tile saw is well made and punches lots of power. the blade guard keeps the water where it suppose to, not all over you. The saw stand is sturdy and heavy duty design easily folds away. The Fence is convenient and precise with an easily locking mechanism to set the accurate measurements. The Diamond Blade was as expected from Rigid, high quality. Over all. best value in the market.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MilosDad Great Value
I looked for a saw like this and was glad when Home Depot sent me a super sale notification. I think it is the best saw for the money as a homeowner. This saw cuts straight and the water recovery system is very good. I dont know why everyone thinks the stand is junk because, although a little challenging to assemble, it is very functional for what you need. Not bulky and pretty sturdy, which is vital for someone who doesnt want to worry about where you are going to store the stand when not in use. A "Great Value".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnPuetz Light weight , Precise, and Easy to use!
I have used my tile saw on several custom jobs. Kitchen back splashes, Bathroom floors, Kitchen floors, Entry way floors, and fireplace surrounds. My saw has been flawless in action! All cuts are Precise, smooth, and straight. The cutting blade has held up for over a dozen projects. The on board water pump as well has withstood all my use and abuse. the slide action of the saw is excellent and the ability to see exactly where your cut will be is clearly visible even in direct sunlight!
I highly recommend this, and all my RIDGID Brand tools to all my customers and friends. You just can not beat the quality AND the Life Time Warranty!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powayhandyman Saw-Good, Stand directions Bad
Notice the stand pictured has only three legs.
I found it useful to mark the “L” legs with a ring of blue painter’s tape. The directions seemed to say attach an “L” leg to an “L” leg with the steel cross bracket. Attach an ”L” to a “R”. Repeat. Nest the pairs together, one bracket up. one down so that “L” legs (blue tape) are outside. Connect using long bolts and plastic spacer. I found a Phillips screwdriver helped line up holes. 13MM socket worked on bolts and ½” socket worked on nuts.
Set top pieces upside-down on counter (with wire crossed and leg brackets up) Verify legs will line up with brackets. You can have someone hold legs up while you attach with last 4 bolts but I laid legs flat and attached with aid of screwdriver.
2 saw-horses and a 24" X 48" piece of plywood make a less expensive table.
A grout sponge helps block splatter/ water throw.
