Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by haplessgardener 7 1/4" Miter Saw (RYOBI)
Nice cuts for 2 x 4s. impressed, laser guide so helpful. Only reason I gave a 4 star is that it's quite small for larger wood-sized projects. I think I should have taken others' reviews to get the 10" or 12" saw. I wasn't looking down the road enough for future projects as the current one was just 2 x 4" cuts only.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ric Thot Good for the price - you get what you pay for
Probably the cheapest 10" miter saw on the market.
Works just fine!
But read through the manual :-)
I'd bet negative reviews below did not go through the proper saw adjustment, as covered in the manual!
The laser isn't OFF !!! Read the manual! The laser should be used with the blade all the way UP, it basically will tell you where the blade will cut when you lower the blade. What the laser will NOT do is remain on the cut mark all the way down!
You need to adjust the laser first, using the small adjustment screw, again, ALWAYS with the blade all the way UP!
When you start lowering the blade, the laser will "move" away from the cut mark... That is to be expected with this saw! The blade will cut EXACTLY where the laser was with the blade all the way UP though!
Manual even tells you how to adjust the laser to cut right of, left of, or directly on the cut mark.
90% positive reviews of of over 135 as of May 8 2016 can't be wrong! This is a good saw for the weekend carpenter and small to medium projects!
But keep in mind you get what you pay for, if you need fullpoof quality and build, go with the other yellow brand..... and pay 3 times the price!

I've had this saw for months now and finally used it this past weekend to cut 2 x 4's for a small project. This saved me so much time! It was easy to set up and worked great. It has a laser light which really helps to line up your cuts perfectly. My only caution to other users is that you have to bring the arm down slowly when cutting through 2 x 4's otherwise it stops and you have to restart the saw. In other words, it's not like a heavy duty saw that you can quickly saw through the wood.
I use all Ryobi 18V tools and use the batteries from those tools because this saw does not come with the battery or charger. I love the ease of use and how convenient it is without having to plug it into an outlet! The cuts are clean and the battery life is long. I'm going to be using it for all my base trim work after laying my new floors. I would recommend this to anyone needing a convenient and dependable miter saw that's very easy to use!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cliff Great value, works great!
This was works great for cutting trim and moulding. Has very precise adjustments, is easy to handle and very portable to move from room to room. Use have to cut slowly or the blade will stop and then you have to remove and re-insert the battery. Wish this Ryobi tool had the "Hybrid" option to run on 110 volts!
