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 love the portability of it. It's really good for light weight moldings. It cut 2x2's easily, haven't tried anything bigger. It's not easy to turn the saw to make angle cuts though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJRIII A perfect addition to carpentry tool collection for small projects at home.
Saw is awesome for small projects, it's lightweight, compact, and equipped with a laser light for accuracy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Good power and features
This is not a professional grade tool, but it is great for most household projects. My workshop is in a detached garage. Being able to have a compound miter saw right where I am working really saves steps and time. It has all of the basic features one would want in a portable tool. I love it!

This is great! I have used this with a Fine tooth blade and it cuts SMOOTH! I also like the laser for spot on accuracy. Now Ryobi just needs to make a portable skill saw in 7 1/4" I have an older home where the lumber is really 2" and the little 5 1/2" saw is just not enough.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dyiwannabe I like it
must bolt down to something. I used a harbor freight vise grip work bench a two bolds. laser was accurate on cuts. Cut thru 2x4 very easily. Cut a 2x8, but had to cut from both directions and trim till the cuts matched up. Battery was fair, not a problem if you have 2 batteries and have one charging all the time. Light weight, dust bag doesn't work so well, could probably tighten up the dust bag with a Velcro strap. I like it.

The saw does a wonderful job for smaller work pieces. It has plenty of guts for cutting even a 2x4. Since I already own a few Ryobi tools and batteries and chargers, use was no problem.

Love the brand. Great power and batteries last long enough to do small to medium projects. Love the versatility of battery operated tools. Lightweight yet powerful tool.
