Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SummerGetHereSoon It Falls Apart
Out of the box...the locking mechanism would come loose during cutting. The laser guide was off by 4 centimeters even after doing everything possible to align it. I've used it only on 4 small projects and had to re-cut pieces that were cut using vertical angle cut. The fence didn't help with securing a straight cut either. While making an angled cut the lock mechanism came loose the blade caught the wood, and the shot the wood backwards (thankfully, no one got hurt & was taking standard safety precautions anyway), it shattered the fence guide. When I looked up replacement parts for the model, it turns out Ryobi has that piece on backorder indefinitely!!!! I called Ryobi to get an ETA, and they may not provide a replacement fence in the future. Hmmmm something tells me that I'm not the only one having the same problem. In the meantime, I've created a homemade fence guide out of wood, using the old fence as a guide for measurements. I'm DEFINITELY NOT happy with it...getting another brand, you get what you pay for!!! Hitachi has a nice setup for a reasonable price, I'm not a professional, but I am an experienced DIYer. I own many tools, this is my first purchase of a Ryobi product, and probably my last!!!

I bought this when it was on sale. For the price it couldn't be beat. This is more of a around the house type miter saw. I have trimmed a few houses with it but the real draw back is when I want to cut crown molding. It can handle 4in crown (barely) but 5in no way. I wish the fence was taller. I gave it 5 stars because you can't expect a $100 miter saw to do everything.. but this one almost does so its nice to have for little projects.

I bought this saw for my wife at Christmas and so far we are loving it. It was easy to set up and get going. After squaring up the blade and reading the instructions, we were good to go. It is very solidly built and has an extra clamp that is useful for holding in the wood. The laser is great and it cuts fast ... real fast! Adjusting the mitre angle is easy. We love this tool and how easy and precise it makes our cuts.

Spent all day using it, came squared correctly from the factory and laser is a nice add on. Has all the power for DIY home projects. If its for home use dont let the price fool you. Been using mine cutting 2x4 with accurate cuts everytime.

My father and I picked up this saw recently to help us finish our basement, specifically the baseboards and crown molding. This saw is fantastic! Easily adjusts and returns solid, clean cuts. The tray ceilings we built look fantastic due to this saw! The preset locking positions make common cuts a breeze. Highly recommend!

I have used multiple types of mitre saws from multiple brands and you really get what you pay for. For $130, I'm very happy with it. Out of the box, it actually cut very square, which was a nice surprise. It cuts trim easily, 2x4's and even cedar well. Dust bag doesn't quite catch everything so use it outside. The mitre clamp does not have pre-set stops which are normal with other brands. Overall, a very solid saw for a DIYer.

I am in the middle of building a house and using this Ryobi Miter Saw works So Great I Bought 2 of them, and the laser makes it that much easier to work with.
The price range is also perfect for some one who want to save a little and still get a good Miter saw.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer17 Favorite tool purchase
The saw was easy to set up and use. There is an issue with the dust bag. It does not collect the wood shavings, as it is intended to do, so there is a mess of wood dust to clean up after using the saw. It has a laser guide to tell you where to position the board, but you have to play with it to figure out where to put your cutting line relative to the laser line, so that is a bit tedious. Also, it is battery powered and if you forget to switch it off then it runs your batteries down - which I did. :-(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BOBtheBUILDER This saw is great
Everything was pretty much ready to go right out of the box. The laser works great and was perfect right out of the box. So far I've used it to make some shelves and a work bench and have had no issues. The only con I've had is the saw dust collector doesn't collect much of anything but not really a big deal.

Set-up for the product was as simple as they come. I've been using the product regularly for a month or so, and I have yet to see a flaw in it. Especially for the price, I would highly recommend this saw.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Danny gave me a returned saw in a new package
I just recently bought this saw and was ready to use it, but i opened the box and all that was there was the saw, and the bag. Not only this but there was saw dust all over the box including on the saw. I was extremely disappointed and now have to take it back. You would think home depot would actually put a NEW product in a NEW box and a NEW product. Thanks a lot for this waste of time and money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonnieM Does exactly what it says on the label
Easy to assemble and set up. You may need to make sure the laser guide has not moved during transit but to be fair that is covered in the instructions. Cuts accurately and easily. A great tool that does exactly what it says on the box. Well worth the money.

Love the saw. Perfect for a home diy'r. Easy to operate and cuts really well. Cuts through 2x4's like butter. The only negative I can come up with is the laser is a bit of a pain to adjust if it's not on the mark right out of the box. I've had many Ryobi products and have been pleased with them all, and this saw is no exception.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYER Don't purchase this tool
Purchased less than a year ago, went to use it today and smoke started pouring out out the motor vent. HD won't accept returns after 90 days, Ryobi won't accept returns period. Need to send or drive to nearest service center in person. Spend a few more bucks for a higher quality tool.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Oldguy Not as expected
I bought this saw because my neighbor loaned me an earlier version. Plus I read all the reviews. However, I am not that pleased. The main thing is the saw blade was not square with the miter fence out of the box. So I followed instructions using my framing square (I checked it for squareness) I loosened the two socket head screws and attempted to move the fence to make it square with the bade. Thinking I was close, I tightened the screw on the left but it jumped backwards when the lock washer touched the fence! So I added a flat washer which solved that problem but there was not enough adjustment in the two oblong adjustment screw holes in the fence. I removed the fence and took a rat tail file to the holes. I'd file some metal away, replace the fence and check it. After the better part of an hour, I finally managed to square the blade with the darn fence. The laser on my neighbor's Ryobi came on when you depressed the trigger switch. This model has an off/on switch and I am sure it is a matter of time before I forget to switch off and have to replace the batteries. My combination square will have to be replaced but I do not expect it to be square to the miter table. Maybe I expect too much but I thought Ryobi made real quality stuff!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocker Bought it today! 5/4/2014
I wanted to purchase the Ryobi 10 in miter saw in green. It's up on the Home Depot site, yet it can't be bought online or found in stores here in South Florida. What's with that?
Anyhow, This saw is great thus far. The laser makes cutting quick. The saw has power and cuts stock well. For 119.00 it's fantastic. It's a 10in so look at the other saws for compatibles and you will ask yourself, "why pay more"! It cuts, it's a 10in and has a laser. This saw is worth the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYHERALLNIGHT Above and beyond
This saw went above and beyond my expectations. It cuts through any wood like a hot knife through butter. I also used it and several masonary blades to cut through over 400 bricks when doing a paver project. The saw made it through that project and is continuing to work great almost 2 years and 5 projects later. I can't complain about the price and quality. I am not a professional builder but for a DIYer it is an excellent buy. Don't waste your time or money on a more expensive saw. This one gets the job done.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gcpainter53 Good saw
This seems to be a well-made saw and is capable of very accurate miter cuts. I did purchase a higher quality blade (Forrest) for which I paid more than for the saw. But the blade that comes with it is okay.
My main difficulty is that the saw is not designed well for clamping the work., The clamp that comes with it mounts off center and tends to torque the workpiece. The back of the fence is not well designed to take a C-clamp, nor is the base. Other than that, I would recommend this saw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hommer Good saw w/ fair accuracy
I've used this saw for framing, decks and finish work.
The blade is excellent; lasts a long time and makes clean cuts. Very powerful and a pleasure to use. I recommend this saw for all but accurate trim work. The motion seems to drag slightly after much use but still works fine. The accuracy is not spot on but close enough for gov work. Would be nice to have this saw for framing and a high end saw for finish work; I'd hate to wear out a high end saw on framing and decks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cheech Great Tool
Used this tool around the house for about 5 years on numerous molding projects, casement and base molding work, crowns, sills as well as for minor decking repair. Using a quality blade will yield very consistent and accurate cuts. For me, this saw has held up very nicely and works just as well today as when I purchased it. The factory blade and fence alignment were spot-on and I've never had to fiddle with any of those adjustments since I bought it. The only limitation is the relatively small size but any 10" saw is going to be too small and have too small of a fence to accommodate large crowns or to cut large dimension lumber. Would recommend this to any homeowner.

This is a great miter saw for the money.
Would not recommend for commercial use as it does not seem to be heavy-duty, being rather light-weight. This is more of a DIYer's miter saw. All the features that the more expensive miters have, but not built to withstand the rigors of heavy everyday use. I was using a $500 12" Dewalt miter saw previously, until I had to return it to my buddy because he needed it for work. When I needed to make more miter cuts around the house, off to HD, and straight to Ryobi (I have several Ryobi tools and they all work perfectly).
I actually enjoy the fact that this saw is light weight because I only need a miter saw occasionally and must carry it out of the garage and to the yard. The Dewalt was so heavy I needed to use two hands. This saw works just as good as the Dewalt and I would highly recommend it to any other DIYer.
As other customers have posted, the laser, while very helpful, is a bit hard to see in the sun and I'm constantly forgetting to shut it off, which will eventually burn it out. So when you use it, remember to turn it off when you're done.
Another concern would be the batteries leaking. They haven't, but I'm concerned they may because I don't really use this saw a lot. Will be taking them out for storage.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this saw and am getting the exact results as when I was using the 4x as expensive Dewalt.

This saw is a great value for end/bevel cutting lumber up to 2x6 and angle cutting lumber up to 2x4. Within these restrictions saw is awesome. Accurate cuts, laser cutting line, easy adjustment, good blade braking action, portable. Purchased mine to rebuild a large deck (2x6x12' planks) and couldn't be happier with saw's performance. Mounted my saw to a Ryobi MiterSaw Stand and the combination is just terrific performance at a very reasonable price.

Good saw. Sharp cuts. The measurements for degrees are a little off but only slightly. If you plan on cutting anything larger than a 2x6 get a larger saw. The problem I had was when it came time to cut my crown molding. The fence is too short to accommodate the cuts required. Everything needed to be set ie... Laser, fence, deck and blade.

I purchase this unit after for years working with an old used miter saw I purchased off Craigslist. The saw works as advertised and I like the laser light feature. If you're like me and you only use a miter saw a couple times a year, this saw is worth the investment.
