Great saw. Cuts are dead straight. For some cuts its better than a table saw, particularly if you aren't trying to make a cut exactly parallel to an edge. For parallel cuts, a good table saw will do a better job. But it's easier to transport and takes up a lot less room than a table saw.

No issues w/ my baseplate
My baseplate was fine. It cut great out of the box. I’d buy it again!

Phenomenal
Here’s the skinny: the blade, motor, track, plunge, bevel, this is the best track saw, I bought this to build furniture. The base plate is NOT warped, -however-, even though it is a single point bevel adjustment, because there are two separate adjustment knobs for the bevel, only -one- knob has the stop to prevent it from going into -1degrees and the other has the stop to prevent it from going to 47+degrees. Basically you have to be extra careful at 0 degrees and 45 degrees (the most common settings) to get the bevel knobs in alignment because only one knob at a time has the built in stop. This STILL does not allow a “twisted” plate or cut, but it does allow a 0- or 45+ cut if you’re not careful. For now I will be keeping the blade at 0 using my gauges and later researching how to possibly add a better stop to the bevel knobs. I’ve cut with several other brands and, for my money, the Bosch is the best track saw for hardwoods and woodworking.

Warped base plate
I just received my saw today and right out of the box the base rocked. Tried loosening the bevel adjustment knobs as I've seen demonstrated online, but it doesn't resolve the issue completely. Very disappointed in the quality from Bosch. I have a shop full of Bosch tools and have always been thoroughly satisfied with their quality, so this is a let down. I hope Bosch has found a remedy or solution to this given the unacceptably high defect rate documented by their customers.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the negative experience you had with the GKT13-225L bases not being flat. The base should be flat and we would like to further assist you. Please contact our tech support directly at 1-877-267-2448, M-F 8a-5p CST or via email at techinfo@us.bosch.com. We have seen a few instances where there bases had a bent in them but the findings were due to the overtightening the bevel on the front or back before tightening the other end. I am not sure if this is what you are experiencing but it would be something to check on to ensure that it is not due to overtightening. We are sorry to hear about the issue you experienced with your Bosch tracksaw. Thank you for posting your comments to bring this issue to our attention. This matter will be forwarded to our product managers for review. We hope to hear form you soon as your satisfaction is important to us. Thank you for your time.
Base Plate Fail x4
Bosch is always my first choice when considering a new tool. Apparently things have changed. Just received my 4th GKT13-225, and the base plate is not flat. How does this get past Quality Control? Lost way too much time returning saws and waiting for a replacement. After doing some online searching, apparently this is a known issue, I'm not the only one who has experienced a non-flat baseplate. Suggestion: Fix the issue or put a coupon in the box for a replacement base plate. What Happened, Bosch? I have an old 1611 that refuses to die, Several 1604's that just work, A 1941 that works like the day I purchased it, and even have a 1678 that has slid off a roof a few times, Bosch was always at a higher level than most other tool companies. Well, Bosch, you've been a faithful partner for quite a few years but it think it is time to switch from Blue to Green for this particular tool. Remember, there are still some tool purchasers that value quality over price.

Game Changer
6ish months in and this is a game changer. Attached to a Metabo dust extractor the sawdust leftover after cutting 5/8" plywood indoors is very little...I probably have under 1/8 cup after cutting 30 sheets down. Working alone was a struggle dealing with sheet goods, now I lay out my tracks and cut...no stretching awkwardly across a table saw, or anything bizarre! :

Bottom Plate
I've had the saw for a couple months. My retailer has been going back and forth with Bosch regarding the bottom plate. Out of the box it rocks back and forth substantially. The plate adjustments can be tweaked to get it flat, but still disappointing for an item this expensive. Otherwise a very good saw.
