Made good zquare cuts out of the box. Laser is a nice touch. Good power for the money. No complaints.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HandymanMike Not exact cuts.
This saw is good, but has problems. Yes it does last a long time, yes it does a good job for fences, decks, things that don't need exact cuts, but if you get into things that you need perfect cuts, you will be deeply dissapointed.
For one, the 90 degree cut notch, is more like 86 degrees. It's not a square cut. So when you cut something, the edge will have a bit of a slope to it.
The adjustments for blade depth and angle are good, and don't come loose while running.
The laser is extremely nice, my cuts would be terrible without it. but again the laser doesn't line up with the blade. If you go straight down a line with the laser, the saw blade will be cutting at an angle on the track. (instead of a 1/4th wide blade cut, it's more like a 2/5th wide cut) You will also have an uneven cut. Even if you mount a 2x4 and c-clamp it as a guide for the saw, the cut will still come out slightly wavey. U mostly notice this on longer cuts, the short cuts you won't see that much.
Bottom line with this product, is it's good for unprecise cuts, but if you need things to line up exactly (like cabinets or something) then have plenty of caulking to fill in the wavy gaps. Maybe i got the black sheep of the litter, but considering this is an asembly line product, i highly doubt it.
