I waited several months before writing this review - I wanted to have plenty of time/use on the saw to base any comments on.
I love this saw! Upon receiving it, I went through all the checks and adjustments. It was very close when it arrived, and would have been perfectly fine for jobsite use prior to any adjustment, but I performed the checks/adjustments to get more familiar with the saw. The fence system is excellent. it seems to have plenty of power. The blade guard is so convenient and easy to use... that... it actually gets used on all appropriate cuts, and on-board storage is good enough that pieces don't get lost. Yes, the miter is inexpensive and of questionable value - worth about as much as DW paid for it (when purchasing in quantity of 10,000 pieces!), but I'm okay with that. It's acceptable for my rough work. For anything other than rough work, consider getting an Incra miter. The saw's real test will likely be one of longevity and/or customer service when/if there is an issue with the saw. I'm hopeful that I'll be happily using this saw in 10 (or more) years.
I purchased the package with the scissor stand (the package was only $20 more than purchasing the saw without the stand - so it seemed like a no-brainer). The stand was priced at $60 (?) separately, so at $20 I was happy to give it a try. I wasn't sure that I'd like the stand or be satisfied with it, but I've found it excellent for my use. The stand folds and moves/stores easily, deploys easily, and is a good balance of strength and weight (I have no reservations about its strength). My stand has a little side-to-side wobble when the saw isn't on top, but once the saw is on top it's quite stable and I don't notice any wobble. My saw/stand is mostly used outside, on uneven yard surfaces, and I've been quite comfortable with its stability to rip long sheets and lumber. The nuts that attach the saw to the stand could be improved a bit (I think others have mentioned this). I tried using wing nuts for easier/quicker on/off, and it works well on the out-feed side, but there isn't clearance on the in-feed side (stuck with the factory supplied nuts until I figure out something better for the in-feed side). The saw/stand has been secure/stable enough that I've used them together without any nut/bolt/fasteners, including large/long rips without any issue/concern (I don't recommend others do this, I'm just including the info to illustrate how stable/secure the package has been for me).
Could I have been similarly satisfied with a Bosch, the Skil worm drive, or a less expensive DeWalt? Possibly, but their tables are a little smaller, their rip capacities are a little less, and I have absolutely no buyers remorse. Based on my experience so far, given the same options, I'd buy this saw again.

Basically, the reason I wanted to write is because I just adjusted the saw blade and the riving knife with Allen wrenches and I was very pleased that the instructions and build made it simple to do. Also, I had at first difficulty raising the saw blade to full height, but:
~underneath the table, found above the left metal shaft that the blade cage slides up and down on was a silver screw protruding out as though not fully screwed down. It has a small black nut that tightens it in place, and it's function is to put pressure on the metal shaft, I am guessing as a safety feature that helps the saw remain at desired height. That bolt can be turned counter clockwise, which also turns the screw, lifting some pressure on the shaft, and then a screw driver can hold the screw in place while you tighten the bolt back down. This gave me more ease in adjusting the height of the blade. I didn't loosen it much, but just enough for ease of adjusting the height. Posted pictures to show you what I am talking about.
On the other side underneath, the black plastic blade cover can be removed for easy access to the riving knife adjustment. Check your fit on Allen wrenches good, so you don't get any stripping out.
I haven't used this saw yet, but I am fully confident it is going to work wonderfully. It is obviously built like a truck.
Adjusting blade perpendicularly to miter slots and centering riving knife properly before use should yield best results.
The adjustments needed are explained in the manual. The other things I mentioned are not.
Hope this helps. Let me know please. I would say Dewalt is a great brand to go with.
Maybe I could post again after I have given it some good use.

So Far So Good
I'm fairly new to WW although it's all I do. Not understanding that the table saw is the cornerstone of any shop, I bought the $120 Ryobi...and was never more frustrated! The 7490X addresses every single concern I had with the Ryobi. It possesses adequate power whether ripping or cross-cutting. The fence system is EXTREMELY accurate/reliable. I threw the leg-system in the corner and built a custom cart on wheels for it (as I have a small shop) and with its portability, I can't run out of ways to use it. The quick release riving-knife is a really cool feature and its operation consumes only seconds. I hook my shop-vac up to the dust-port and it deals with about 65% of saw-dust. I built a sacrificial fence for dado use, along with a custom throat-plate and dado-cutting is consistently "right on." I love the feature that defaults to "OFF" if power is interrupted and the punch-stop button is pretty cool too. OK...Here's a few features that I don't like:
1. The power-cord is kinda short.
2. You gotta kinda "Mash" the "On" button or you will get a false-start.
3. The table top is non-ferrous so a magnetic feather-board is not an option.
4. The housing is not enclosed so 90% dust-collection proves difficult (without a high-end system).
Although I've only owned this machine for about 3 weeks, I've made 1000 cuts and so far, so good! I'm working my way up to a Delta Unisaw but in the interim, the 4 con's I listed is low hanging fruit compared to the pro's. I really like this machine & would recommend it to my friends.

Very happy with this saw
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I couldn't be happier! I did a lot of research before buying this saw. Right out of the box every setting was accurate, the fence measurant from the blade, and blade at 90 degrees were perfect. The set up was easy.
