Rated 5 out of 5Â by Omid With what you pay you'll get enough power.
It is now about one year that I have this saw. The power is good and it gets the job done but it has some issues:
- The angle of the blade is not sync with the adjustment handle on the saw, so I need to check it manually to make sure about my desired angel.
- Fence is not accurate, so I use my square to check that.
- It's too noisy and dusty!!!
If you do woodworking occasionally, I would recommend to buy this, other than that better to go with a professional one. I gave 5 of 5, because my review is based on what I paid for this saw.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CampbellRiverHandyman Perfect For What I Needed
Remember, this is a hundred dollar saw. You will not be able to build a house with it and that is not what it is for. I bought it to lay 1800 sq ft of bamboo floor. I did not really expect it to last much longer than that job but I was pleasantly surprised. It is still working just fine. A friend used it to rebuild the interior of her motorhome and my granddaughters and I have built many bird houses with it. It is on it's third or fourth blade and just keeps on ticking.
Highly recommended for light/medium handyman tasks.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by KULMANHW For rough cuts it is okay but that's it.
Bought this table saw in the summer of '11 because it was on sale. Did not use it until late fall. Wish I would have kept the box to return it.
Pros: It cuts wood. - It is an inexpensive table saw that is good for the job site/home to do rough cuts, and it comes with legs. Those are the only good things that I can think of.
Cons: I never was able to zero in the blade or the fence. The blade has adjustment screws to zero in, but you can never quite get it. The whole motor mount just bends, and when you think you got it, it just springs back. The fence is a bit more adjustable but very hard due to method in which it is done. You have bolts on top of the fence that you have to play with, rather than set screws at the base. The mitre track is not standard size. So you can't even get a proper mitre attachment for it that doesn't flop around. The track is not uniform. On mine the track bottom bows and the top of the track is tilted. One side is higher than the other. I tried making a cross cut sled for it with hard plastic rails for the track, and it just binds in the middle. If you want to do cabinet work or anything that needs a bit of accuracy, look at something else. In fact I am so disgusted with this saw and with other Ryobi tools that I have, that I am getting rid of all of them, because everything is just built with "It's good enough" mentality, just so they can say that they have a dog in the race.
In conclusion it is good (because of the low price) if you want to see if you like woodworking, but as soon as you find out that you do, get rid of it or take it apart and use the motor to make a blower for dust extraction.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by grandma great product for a great price
I like my new Ryobi. Following clear instructions on the operator's manual, I had no trouble assembling it. Even though it is powerful, it is easy to use. Its power had me worried in the beginning, but thanks to the safety features, I feel confident using it. It handles the ripping of very hard wood (Brazilian cherry wood) just great. Yet it is light enough so I can carry it outside onto the garage floor for easier access and light.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Arhandyman46 Nice saw for us amateurs.
My previous table saw was a Ryobi and it did the job for about seven years. The saw was easy to assemble and the table is very stable. As with my previous saw, I installed a shelf on the support brackets to hold tools and small stock. The picture I have included doesn't show the blade safety cover but it does show the shelf. I am impressed with the power of the saw and with the workmanship. It may not be for the professional woodworker or carpenter but this saw will last years in most homeowner workshops.
