    A:  Effectively yes, the white LED “XPS” system is not included here. All the bevel and miter capabilities are the same.

            Very happy with my purchase upgraded from the rigid 10 inch double bevel the 12 inch makes all the difference in the world. No more flipping boards over to make the cut!

            This Miter Saw is a Beast
            Very happy with this saw. Very easy to use, being that im relatively new to the wood scene/ diy enthusiasts. This corded saw works perfect for me. I won’t be going to job sites , all my work will be done at home. If I ever get deep in where I have to have a miter saw ready for on the go then I’ll invest in a cordless one. Happy camper for now. Great job once again @Dewalt

              Corded Miter Saw
              This saw works very well. It has adequate power and size to work for most projects, I was impressed with how easy it was to mount to the DeWalt stand which i also purchased and it is stable and easy to use. My first small project with it was to build a sandpit cover and this saw made the angles easy to do. Remember measure twice, cut once!

                Great Sliding Saw! Dewalt did it again!!
                Only minimal assembly was needed for the saw. Only the extenders and the clamp needed to be installed. I examined the saw's alignment and followed the directions. It didn't need any alterations. It was plugged in, and I started using it. No problems.

                  Powerful, but Plastic Parts? One broke 2+ months
                  There is some good here, and that is the power that this saw has... which can also be a bit dangerous, so pay attention. The torque on this thing wants to suck the blade in. I also like the double bevel option. On the negative side, and why I gave this 2 stars is the plastic on this in the operating zone. Today, while cutting some lumber, the plastic piece (maybe the rear guard) broke off. Sadly, I can't find a parts list anywhere to narrow down what part this is and what I need to ask for. Overall, not good.

                    Still a favourite saw.
                    Always been a great saw. This is my second one. No adjustments out of the box. Nice cut capacity and is still a favourite. This model does not have the xps shadow line but you can buy it online, my 36v makita still beats it but only just...
