No case... and. more importantly... you won't get the Lifetime Service coverage you are promised either. It doesn't really exist. Don't trust me.... just google Ridgid Lifetime Warranty.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ridgid 6 1/2" Magnesium corded circular saw Nice light little saw. Nice baseplate. Cuts pretty true (+/- quarter degree) right out of the box. Designed for framing, but I have been using it with a strait edge & a fine tooth blade for nice cuts in cabinet grade plywood. Motor is made for dimensional lumber so it has plenty of power. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 14, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Check your saw before your measurements I've owned this saw for years now. I'll admit this is my first circular saw, but I've gotten to know it very well. Most projects I've done were very simple where accuracy was important but not the main priority. Over summer 16 I've taken my craft to new levels, this is were truth came came out. I use guides and/or jigs majority of the time to try to achieve straitest cuts possible. This saw is no where near strait! Never been dropped or abused in the slightest way, but after recording measurements on the saw its self the 0° setting & blade trueness are way off! I was very upset as I thought back on all the material, cuts, blades, time& effort that was wasted trying to reach higher levels of percision. I checked the math so many times & I thought carpentry just wasn't for me but it wasn't me it was the effing saw... Big mistake as a noob, at the time the saw was good for my price range but I would have spent triple if I knew the time that could be saved. if you happen to still purchase make sure you know how to assess the trueness of the tool, there are other draw backs on this tool but this was the most significant. Good luck September 10, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tried it out and sadly disappointed I bought this saw because it was compact, powerful, and lightweight. It also had a good warranty and with Home Depot Rigid tools you can return within 90 days. i used this saw on a small project where i had to crosscut 2 x 4s and rip some plywood using an edge guide. i was disappointed in my cuts and the performance of this saw. This is my list of complaints: baseplate is not perpendicular to saw blade by about 1 1/2 degrees, baseplate edges are not paralell to saw blade, edges are not machined flat., levers are molded plastic over a nut and will definetly round out over time with clamping down hard, also seems to have play in motor shaft. Overall, i wish the engineering team could have paid attention to the details i mentioned because this being one of the few compact, corded, lightweight saws available it could have been a winner. I am a former mechanical designer and i am fussy about my tools. Rework this saw design and I may try it again.--JB in Rochester,NY June 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw Light weight and easy to use. Have yet to have an issue with it. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Nice saw. One problem, tried to square saw, blade to foot at 90 degrees and was unable to do so. She cuts at roughly 87 degrees. I mean who wants to take a saw back after they just drove 27 miles. May return for exchange and or adjustment next trip. May 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Reminds me of Detroit 30 years ago. Just way too many shortcomings. 1. The depth lock is loose, and as a consequence it wouldn't lock down the depth. I had to unscrew the torx bolt, re-tighten for it to work. 2. The bevel lockdown is loose and likewise wouldn't lock down and I had to readjust. 3. The 90 degree between the blade and the shoe is not square. The adjust needs a T8 torx bit to adjust. I don't have it. So have to get the special T8 to do adjustment. 4. The blade and the side of the shoe is not parallel. It is off by about 1/16 between the front and the back which is quite substantial. Adjusting this requires a complete tear-down of the housing, motor and arbor assembly. I gave up for what could have been a very well designed quality saw if the manufacturer are on top of their QA department. Reminds me of Detroit 30 years ago where the business and production model is to ship it out regardless and let the dealers handle any quality issues. Well in this case, even with lifetime warranty, I'm not putting up for it......I returned it !!! May 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw light easy to use Saw has big capacity for such a small saw, slices 3/4 plywood faster than my 8" dewalt handles a 2X4 with zero issues. May 4, 2016
