Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ckinggo Useful, but not very powerful
The saw is good for trim pieces or small lumber, but it quickly becomes overwhelmed with anything larger than a 2x4 or more than 4" wide. I'd go with a conventional saw if mobility isn't an issue.

Easy to assemble and cuts clean. The laser light is a nice feature

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wireless1 Great For Small Jobs (Built a Toy Box)
This is a compact unit that delivers a good cut in the size ranges it is made for and seems to last a long tiem on a single battery. I did run into issues when trying to finish angled cuts that were to wide for the saws design (This will not work as a saw to do angles with large crown molding). My only real complaint is that the laser is not strong enough to be seen if you are using this outside on a bright day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peteguy135 good value for price
seems to function fine at 45 degree cuts and works well as a cut off saw, only thing is the dust collector, kind of redundent, its there but really does not contain the dust or wast material still need to use it in the outside, so back and forth with the install work. also the laser guide needs to be modified(which we done) to really work right

I needed to go to a job site and knew that I would be cutting some molding for around doors, closets, etc. I set up shop with the small Black and Decker workcenter, and then placed this on top of it. I was cutting within moments with no hassle. Cuts extremely well and was able to break it all down again quickly. Would recommend for any small jobs around the house. Cut the cord!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Iceman Perfect for the job
Have 5 rooms of trim to do as part of ongoing remodel. No cords, easy to clean up around when doing only part of a job. Being light weight easy to put aside until next time. Charge lasts longer than expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Butch Useful tool for small jobs
Only limited use so far, but it worked well and was very convenient to use.
I like the Ryobi approach of a common battery set for a line of portable tools. This makes maintenance much simpler. I just hope the corporate types don't screw up the system by going to a "newer" line of tools

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Atlantadan A hard working little saw
A great size and weight, so it's extremely portable. I bought it as a backup for my slider, but I've found myself using this little saw more than the larger one. The blade that came with it was adequate, but because 7 1/4" blades are so inexpensive, I immediately replace it with a much better, finer cut Diablo blade.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bought2much Stopped Working
I should have waited before leaving that 5 star review -my Ryobi miter saw is now DEAD. It quit working while I was trimming some 1x3s, so it definitely wasn't overloaded. As I previously wrote, it seemed like a power hog, so I purchased the hi - capacity lithium battery, thinking that might help. No good - the battery indicator showed it still had 3/4 of its charge, and the saw wouldn't power up. The trigger button wouldn't engage. I tried switching batteries (I tried 6 - I can be pretty stubborn), but nothing would work. I think perhaps a saw uses too much power to be cordless. I'll be taking it back to Home Depot today and buying and buying a REAL miter saw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeffT fantastic trim and project saw.
I am rebuilding my small garage and used this saw over a several day span. All the replacement wood is wet pressure treated 1x4, 2x4 or 2x6. No problem cutting it. Its battery powered, so u go a little slower, thats the only concession I made. The laser guide is great. Very accurate. Just remember to turn it off after a cut. I felt this should be tied into the trigger. I cant see not wanting it on. Lite, easily transported around the job site and fairly quiet. Everyone enjoyed using it with no complaints. Im an ex contractor and own everything, but the Ryobi tools are now my goto tools. Fast, convenient, reliable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dummy001 My 1st Miter saw
My 1st Miter saw. Bought this to add to my 6 pc Ryobi tools I got for Father's Day. Never used any power tools before except for power drill. This saw is very easy to use. Just read the manual on how to set up and went to Ryobi site for some basic instruction on how to use and was cutting 2x4s in no time.
The saw is very light. Easy to use. I'm a seasoned DIY'fer but the quality to is very good. Uses the Ryobi 18V One Plus System. I'm not planning on doing elaborate projects (out of my league), but for doing some odd and ends around the house, it's perfect for me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fernbark This is a light duty saw, but works ok for 2x4 or smaller
If you don't need to cut anything bigger than a 2x4, and you are not making a lot of cuts, this isn't too bad of a saw. If find that it cuts pretty slowly, and if you are expecting 110v performance, you will be disappointed. It has much going for it, like size, weight, price, and being cordless. I use it out in the wood, which makes it nice to have, but it would be much better if it was faster and could cut larger lumber. My main issue with this device is that it binds up with out much pressure, shutting the saw off.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chuckybucky Ryobe oneplus 7 1/4" miter saw review
It was not powerfull enough to go thru a standard 2 X 4 without binding.
The fence appears to be made from some inferior cast of metal and cracked the after the first few uses.
Returned it after 1 week.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JMfrommichigan Great saw
Bought this to add to my collection of Ryobi cordless tools and was not disappointed. Used for cutting 2.25 x .75 inch hardwood flooring in small projects around the house and it works great. Haven't tried it on anything larger (I have a 10 inch corded saw for that). But so far I'm impressed with how it cuts. I'm not surprised by the quality as I've never had a problem with any of my Ryobi tools.

i order this because its cordless, and i dont need a pro miter saw as i am just a home owner. i tested it when i was doing my home remodel. its has not enough power to cut a 2x4 like others, it shut itself down in middle of cutting, had remove the battery to reset it, this happen several times. also the laser not turn or when i switch on, turned couple time to turn on, this happen once. last thing is after use the saw, the battery can not to be charged right away, had to let it cold down for awhile before take it to the charger.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYguy I like this saw for what it was designed for
If you are going to be cutting some 2x6's, 4x4's or even 2x4's on a regular basis this saw is not for you.
This saw is for small jobs like trimming out windows, framing a small closet and other odd jobs like cutting aluminum (use a 140 tooth blade) for replacement window screens. For that it is perfect.
It is light, easy to pack around and best of all it doesn't need any cord to make it run. I did a small job the other day and cut about 20 2x4's, and one 2x6 and then cut a bunch of trim to add on a closet in a basement bedroom. It did all of that on one battery. In fact I built the whole closet without a power cord. Even the portable light was batter powered.
For small quick jobs this is the saw to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bought2much Great Small Saw
Perfect for my DIY projects around the farm. Being female and petite, I've oftentimes been overwhelmed by the power of larger saws. This one, while still getting the job done, is much more my size. It doesn't intimidate me at all. So far, I've built sleeping platforms for my goats, and a couple of birdhouses. The only bad thing about it is that it IS a power hog. I have mostly the compact Ryobi one batteries and it can use those up in just a couple of hours. I just bought a hi-cap battery, so we'll see if that makes a difference.

This is such a great little tool. If you already own this line of tools/batteries then you'd be silly not to add this incredibly useful bench-top and portable tool to your shop, garage or truck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tooluser Pretty nice saw
I bought this saw to cut small oak trim for a projection screen I am building. It has worked well. I was surprised that it has a soft start and maybe because of that it works fine with the smaller sized lithium battery. It is well made and looks almost identical to the 120 volt version. Although I am sure it does NOT have
the same power as the 120 volt model.
If I was going to do a lot of cutting I
would get the 120 volt model. But I have
a big miter saw and I think this one will
come in handy for small jobs. And of course the set up time for this saw is almost zero.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cfrood Exceeded Expectations
I can't say enough good things about Ryobi products. I own almost all of the 18 volt tools and love all of them. I recently bought this miter saw as a back up and lighter option. I took it to finish a deck job and it cut through everything perfectly including pressure treated 2x4s. One of the big lithium batteries lasted all day. My only complaint is that it shut down randomly a few times. I had to remove/re-insert the battery twice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jeepster Got a dud, too
Purchased this saw and battery online. When it arrived I realized I needed a battery charger too! Went to local HD and bought the charger, charged the battery and put it in the saw. The blade would turn about 2" (same issue "Matt" another reviewer had). Tried it again and it wouldn't turn even 2". Put the battery back in the charger and the charger indicator lights said the battery was defective. So, drove to local HD and got an exchange for the battery. Charged it, put it in the saw and same results. Blade only moves about 2" at a time. Returning everything at this point and shopping for a different brand.
