            Garbage. Don't waste your money
            The saw pulls to the left, especially on a long cut when the blade heats up. Depth setting is a pile of junk, loosens up all the time. Nor does it have a safety start. My $29 Skil saw was much better than this, at a fraction of the cost. The picture I've included with this review shows what this saw does. That wobble was despite using a 3/4" high guide to keep the saw on the line. Utter garbage.

              Great saw....cuts through wood like butter. The guard can stick a bit and the depth adjust is maddening. But, if you take the time you can figure it out and work with it. Put a Diablo blade on it and you have a gem of a saw. Easy to work with. Note ...the cut guide mark is actually the immediate left of the blade....meaning a cut on a line will actually cut to the right...and leave the line, which I find helpful. How the depth adjust design passed muster is beyond me. Basically, a little spring holds the hold thing in place...or not.

                I absolutely love this saw, I now own two so that I always have one in my truck and shop. Plenty of power and light weight. The fact is I even bought one for a great friend.

                It does the job, although it doesn't have a laser pointer or rip cut guide or any accessories and a little heavier than similar size of other brands

                I find only one flaw with this saw. The cut depth lever does not hold for a long period of time. You are always having to re-secure it.
