Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Best 10 inch slider I've owned
I've owned Delta 12", and Kobalt 10", the Kobalt was the worst, but this Ryobi's simplicity is great. Light weight and square out of the box. I'd like it if the laser was a more adjustable. Dust collection isn't great but neither is any od the other saws dust collection. I removed the side extenders because they don't slide in and out, the table supports make up for that. I haven't tried to cut crown moulding with it yet, but I have a Kreg Jig for that. I did upgrade to a Freud Fusion 10" 60 tooth blade made for sliders and it cuts great $76. For the money and you buy the miter saw table with it, you cant go wrong.

I bought my first miter saw from Lumber Liquidators when I had to put down some flooring in my condo after a flood in 2014. Compared to that, this is light years better. The positive locking table is like a miracle to me...the old one had no locks and the cast markings were nowhere close to accurate. When it came time to finish up my baseboards, I knew I needed something more precise but didn't want to break the budget. This fit the bill perfectly and I am very pleased with it. I like that the laser works off the AC power and not batteries. I did replace the blade right away with a 60 tooth Diablo since the bulk of my projects at this point is in finishings, but it was just as well as my table saw needed a new blade anyway, so it got the hand-me-down. This thing is pretty light compared to my old one, quieter, and just seems to cut so much better.
Only cons I would say is the post for the hold-down clamp uses a vertical friction method to keep it in place that just doesn't work that great. Will likely McGyver it to use a pin or something. Also the slide action of the saw itself seems "dry" in a sense in that there are spots where it seems to stick a bit. It's not enough to be a problem and a spot of oil would probably take care of it.

I swapped the blade with an 80 tooth and its cuts great. Build quality is great and make a 12 inch cross cut. Very easy to adjust as well. The laser needed to be adjusted slightly

We use all our tools for small DIY projects around the house. That being said this is a fantastic purchase. It is easy to use, affordable, and works very well. I can't comment on how well it would hold up for the professional contractor with that kind of use, but it suits out needs perfectly. We purchased on sale and our first project was new crown moulding on our kitchen cabinets. We used the blade it came with and didn't have any issues with rough cuts, but I would recommend purchasing a finer tooth blade for any finishing projects, depending on the materials you plan to use. I will echo the comments of other users re: the laser- it doesn't quite line up, so don't plan to use it as your guide for those precision cuts!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nick good, but not precise...
not really too easy to calibrate, if you use framing square (as it pointed in manual) it looks square, but gives you an error. If you use engineering square, it is mission impossible to calibrate. If you gonna use it for moldings and floors -- it is ok more or less. If you d like to do any type of furniture -- no way. I found a number of reviews on you-tube amazon and here reporting the same result, good but if you want to make good quality 90 degree cuts -- go for another brand... I bought 12'' h!tach! and it works nicely for nearly the same price. Very precise cuts. Happy woodworking!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LiCM Awesome!!!
I asked for a new ryobi saw for Xmas. My husband got it for me. It is the best saw, I absolutely love it!!!! I was using a kobalt for the past few years but this is the best hands down. I love the entire ryobi line up n glad I made the switch.
Love that the laser is not battery operated. Mine always kept going out on my other. Faulty wire in battery compartment it drove me nuts!!! That to me is a huge plus!!!
Love the longer cross cuts on this too compared to my previous 7.25" saw blade.
Love the design. Ryobi puts a lot of thought into the design of these.
I love the ease of use. I put new blades on my old saw and it was so hard to get thru wood without burning it. Oh man I hated my other saw so bad I couldn't wait till Xmas to open it.
I use this for building things every day so it was much needed.
