Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by damansays You might want to look into this saw
I purchased this saw after looking at many many saws in this price range & even after seeing the bad review here.. for sum reason this saw is about the same as 1 sold at hf with good reviews only difference is color. anyway ive been using it over a month now for many projects some not so nice to saw. And its still works great. setup was pretty simple. took longer building stand. Anyway this is not a cabinet saw or a high end contractor saw.. but if u take time setting up b4 you cut it is an accurate saw. add a good blade i used marples & frued & it cuts very smooth. If u let 1 bad review determin not getting saw you may be missing out on something good.

One review compares this with a Harbor Freight saw. I have that Harbor Freight saw.
Believe the review that is the good one. This is a solid home saw. The miter gauge
is almost adequate. The fence is ok if you use a ruler and square each time it is set.
The motor is powerful. The blade is fine for framing. With care it will make furniture,
but is not a cabinetmaker's saw.
Harbor Freight has a warrantee that would cover a bad motor. If Wen is not with it,
maybe that's a better buy. For inexpensive tools, I think companies must use "consumer
quality control." So you need a good warrantee (a free one) at the time of purchase.
A bad motor might be exchanged by Home Depot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BroncoRoger This product is a piece of junk
I had a hard time putting the saw togeather because the instructions were so difficult to understand and no parts were labled. Then after getting it put togeather I cut about 12 cuts of 1/4 plywood and 6 cuts of 3/4 plywood and the saw started making a loud popping noise, with each noise a bright white flash would come out of the motor. I called WEN tech support and the guy talked to me like he could care less about my problem. He told me that the saw probably had a bad armature. I replied it is brand new just out of the box. His reply was it must have been bad right out of the box. He said I could send it back to them for repair at my cost. Not impressed with WEN tech support or their product. Will never buy anything else with the WEN name on it.
