I am impressed with this saw out the box. I am no longer a tradesman but still buy tools as if I go to work everyday and generally pay top dollar. This Ryobi though was such value for the money I could not be happier. Unlike other reviewers, I had absolutely no issues with the laser or any other component. I only gave it four bars for quality as it just feels light to me compared with other power tools I own and I want to see it last as long but there is no sign that anything is going to fail. It will make my next three projects a snap. Accuracy is amazing. Buy the Ryobi stand as an add on. It was designed for the saw and makes use that much easier.

Saw was excellent. The laser was accurate and very easy to operate. The sliding mechanism was very smooth. 5 stars.

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.

An excellent choice if you need a ten inch sliding compound miter saw! Comes pretty much assembled and ready to go, and works very well in creating tricky cuts! Light enough to be considered portable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dbaxRonin Nice saw for the price
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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ogre Beware the slide arms
At first it seemed like straight cuts, whether 90 degrees, mitered, or beveled, were easy. This miter saw is very convenient in that the miter control and bevel control are simple. No problem there. And the blade is easy to change out, assuming you pay attention to the instruction book (like I did), and turn the bolt counter-clockwise to tighten. However, I found that after a few sliding cuts and looking closely at the work piece, the blade left an annoying circular indentation where the blade finished the slide cut. I checked and re-checked to make sure everything was tight, angled correctly, etc., but the indentation was still there. The only solution I've found is either 1) immediately pull away the left side of your work piece; or 2) pull the miter saw handle to the right to keep it from naturally drifting left. If Ryobi could keep the slide system from drifting left or right, I would've given this a 4-star review. If the laser would actually be parallel to the pencil line and blade, it'd get 5 stars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kreeg very good saw for the home workshop
As I am a Ryobi fan, this is a great saw for my wood shop. I did have a little problem with the depth gauge adjustment clip-- the clip screw did unscrew so I could move clip

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tbody66 Great Value!
I've owned several brands and find this one to be as reliable and functional as any brand on the market at a much lower price!
