Well balanced for cutting accurately!
You may come accross other reviewers who think the balance is somewhat funny- which is only true if you are trying to hold it with the blade up. But when I aligned it at the edge of my table with the blade flush, it balanced itself on the spot, with the other side of the sole hanging outside! This indicates that the saw has a natural tendency to remain perpendicular to the cut, when supported on only the right half of the sole, where the weight of the machinery was balanced.

There is a lot to like about this saw, price, size, power. It was easy to order and was delivered in good time. I want to rate it higher, but there is one issue stopping me. If you draw a line on the board you want to cut and follow the line with the saw, this may be a great saw for you. But, if you measure from the saw blade to the edge of the saw base, calculate and clamp a straight edge across the board you want to cut, to guide the saw for a good straight line cut (as I like to do), there is a problem - at least with the saw I received. There is about 1/16" difference in the distance from the saw blade to the edge of the saw base at opposite ends of the saw base. Because of this, the cut is going to be wrong (unless you remember to consider this 1/16" difference in your calculations for one end of the straight edge you clamp to your board as a fence). See the photo.

(What's this)
Genesis 5.8 Amp 4-1/2 in. Circular Saw is a handy saw to have around the shop. It fits projects where you'd use a circular saw for smaller tasks that the big saw can be more of a problem. Its four and half inch diameter blade can handle two by lumber and sheet goods. Its not nearly as heavy as the larger 71/4-inch circular saw and this one weighs only about six pounds. Because of its light weigh and design it can be held with one hand leaving the other hand to steady the lumber being cut. They show pictures cutting sheet goods, but the small size and one hand use is excellent for short quick cuts. I can cut a 2x4 with this faster than using the larger circular saw and feel safer, too.. The motor is inline behind where you hold it giving a steady feel to it. The blade is smaller so it is slower in cutting than a 7 1/4-inch circular saw, but the comfort and control in using it makes this fine . The smaller blade is better for pocket cuts and can do plunge cuts, too. Be sure to lubricate the two bevel hinges, if it sticks as mine first did out of the box. It comes with a seven foot power cord and tilts up to 45 degrees for bevels. It has a dust port and hose connection on the top of the saw which works well and it fit my small 1 1/4-inch connection shop vac fine. It has a blade guard and safety button which is held momentarily along with the trigger to start the motor. Included is an edge guide and an Allen wrench. The blade is changed with the included Allen wrench and a spindle lock button makes it all easier. It also comes with a small saw edge guide. I found the saw easy to control with plenty of torque. The way its designed you can rest it horizontally upright rocked back on the motor. The quality is there and the layout and design is very similar to a Rockwell model being sold at a premium price. I'm sure I'll be using it instead of my Skilsaw for more projects because of the ease of use and faster setup.
