Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DaveC A great little saw
Last tile project, I rented a big Makita wet saw which worked perfectly. Then I decided to do tile projects on two more bathrooms. With the size, it was going to be two or three more days of rental so it made sense to look at purchasing a small DIYer level wet saw.
So far working on travertine 12" tiles for a floor and ceramic subway tiles for a tub surround, it's worked sufficient. Sure, would it be nicer if the guide locked in more squarely more easily. But then it would be a more expensive saw. For small projects where you can take the time on your cuts, you can get professional level results especially if you pair it with a good blade. (I'm using a Black Widow.)
If you want all the bells and whistles, this isn't the saw for you. If you're looking for a saw which gets the job down with time and care, then this is definitely one you should consider.
And about the little switch key, I have a Ryobi table saw with the same type of key but bigger. I agree that it can easily become lost so I just keep them in the saw. My daughter has no interest in power tools so I have no fears of an accident. But I've still taught her of the dangers in case she ever has a mind to while I'm not at home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chad38 great saw
The saw was a great value. The stand was an added bonus and came in handy. My only gripe was the cheap saw blade thay came warped. But I did expect to buy a new blade after reading other reviews. I cut natural stone panels, that ranged from 1/2 to 2 inches. The saw never slowed down, just make sure the guard/material splitter is perfectly aligned with the blade. Since the blade just sits in the water well means no pump and no pump failure.

Although I have only used the saw on a small job as yet, I am very pleased. I bought this saw because the clear water guard allows you to view your guide marks and see the tile as you proceed. This was a major drawback to the saw I had from Harbor Freight. I'm glad someone who knows tools added this feature.

Good product for the cost. Table guide lock works fine, but tile residue reduces ease of use. Water immersion system throws water with safety guard set high enough to cut thicker material.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Paul01 Would not recommend
The start button requires a plastic insert to work, it constantly falls out. That needs to be modified or bypassed, so annoying. The drain needs a hose adapter so when it's on the stand you can drain into a bucket and not all over the floor.

Not good quality, it chipped the tile. We ended up taking it back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lou Great for the price....
The Ryobi tile saw is not a high end tile cutter but it certainly does it's job. I purchased it during the holidays so it was a great deal for the price. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to do some basic to medium tile jobs.
