I have been using DeWalt framing saws for years now. This newest version is well built, with a cast and webbed foot plate. The depth and bevel locks are easy to read and adjust, also the double depth (and length) framing hook is a nice touch. As before, the motor is powerful, making cross and rip cuts with ease.
This latest version is also much quieter than the 378 model, no longer do you have the annoying rattle that sounds like your bearings are about to fail.
I would rate this saw above similar models from other manufacturer's due to it's lighter weight, strong construction, and added features.

Found it to be all they said it would be. Light weight and guard doesn't snag on materials even thin cuts.Lots of power 15amp.The rafter hook comes in handy, fit larger material then just 2" bys. The shoe has good guide marking on front and back to keep the saw on your line thought the cut.

Have had this saw for awhile and has given me no problems. Plenty of power and should last a long time.

This saw got some good reviews online, and I liked the available rip fence, so we decided to try it out. Overall I've been impressed- it is balanced pretty well (but it is a little on the heavy side), and it seems to be powered well also.
The deck seems to be virtually indestructible, and the extra large rafter hook is nice too- fits over a 2 1/2" TJI with ease.
My only issue is that the depth adjustment lock lever seems to be extremely difficult to lock/unlock... but that's pretty minor in my opinion.
We'll be buying a few more of these as the other saws wear out, if for no other reason than the rip fence option.
