Fuego 12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Magnesium Compact Framing Circular Saw is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, solid saw - lightweight, handy for remodel/overhead/vertical use. Blade depth lock doesn't... Good, solid saw - lightweight, handy for remodel/overhead/vertical use. Blade depth lock doesn't seem to clamp down at max depth, but hasn't been a problem. Doesn't come with a rip fence - really silly - you can order one from Rigid for <$3 + shipping - a needless hassle. Soft case would have been nice, too; but after 6 mos. & several projects, I'm a satisfied customer & would buy it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Adjustment depth barely works. Then broke after 10 uses and rigid won't replace cause I registered to late.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Woulda coulda Let me start by saying that this would've been a great saw. It cuts beautifully. But Ridgid went cheap on the hardware. The thumblock mechanism went soft - I couldn't lock the depth at all; it kept slipping to full depth. I have years of experience and I'm not going to cut 3/4" plywood at full depth, and it wouldn't even lock there. I tried to tighten and adjust, only to find out the square ended bolt is simply pressed into the blade guard and the springed-plastic thumblock lever is easily stripped. Not able to fix it. Looks nice on the shelf, useless on the job. Sorry, I had a Ridgid mitre saw that I loved, but the quality (and the lifetime warranty) are gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid circular saw Overall, great product. It is a lightweight, 6 1/2" circular saw. It is what it is. The blade is on the right (for better or worse). I am right handed and would prefer blade left, but I can live with decision. Here is why. I researched tons of circular saws as I am laying hardwood floors and I need to cut planks repetitively. I borrowed a cordless Dewalt 20V 6 1/2" inch and it has been convenient, except for batteries. The blade for the Dewalt is positioned on the left, which I like. The saw is lightweight. I thought I wanted a corded saw with a left blade, but I only found two made, one by Bosch and one by Milwaukee. Both models are 10+ lbs. For my hardwood floor cuts, I want a light saw, as I am cutting free-hand using a speed square. This Rigid saw's larger brother received good reviews on websites, so I trusted this saw would be good as well. I feel that it is. The saw is light enough that I feel comfortable with it in my left hand so I can see my cut line while holding a speed square on the plank in my right. I can adjust the depth of the cut, which will allow me to hold the speed square to the plank with my left hand, and cut while holding the saw in my right. I decided on this saw as opposed to cheaper alternatives, like the Ryobi 7 1/4" saws that are a little lighter (7-7.9 lbs), because the composition of the saw appears to be sturdier, not plastic. I decided against cordless because a $100 saw easily turns into $200+ when you get two batteries and a battery charger. I am happy with it overall.
