worked good...for a month
I bought this saw right before Christmas to do some small furniture building and household duties. Didn't need anything extravagant just wanted a cheaper saw that would cut straight. It worked good for me for a month, then I went to cut a 4x4 chunk of wood about 5/8 inches thick. I was almost all the way through it then I heard a loud bang and the chunk went flying. It wasn't long enough to use the clamp so I was holding it by hand. I found the wood and went to look at the saw I noticed a large break in the fence and the whole fence was pushed back and misaligned. I have never heard of this happening, probably a freak thing but sure was a surprise. Home depot was very nice and helpful returning it. I did upgrade to a more expensive one hoping to never have a problem again. Also, the saw was delivered much faster than the range given. I would recommend this saw because I do think this was just a freak accident.

    Nice product
    My son got this for my husband for Christmas. We have lots of projects that can be done for our daughters wedding. Product seems to be sturdy and easy to use. Some of the levers are plastic so I wonder how long it will be before they break. Good product for the price.

      Good Saw
      Seems to be a good saw. It makes a good Compound miter on a 2x6. Only issue is that he Dust collector bag is almost useless. It does not pick up the saw dust due to it's location. The blade throws it out the back. Only thing that was wrong with the assembly was that the blade was not tight so I had to take off the guard to tighten it. Overall I am happy with it. A good saw for the price

      Works 'ok' but not accurate
      I have to have the miter at 1 degree to get a square cut and the handle has wiggle in it making your cut not perfect, you get what you pay for. Trying to figure out a specific bevel with it is mostly impossible, just go all the way it can for a 45 degree bevel. Dust bag doesnt do anything. Otherwise its a saw and cuts wood, at least it can do that.

      I gave this saw to a son as a Christmas gift, and he loved it. I thought the price was a great value! The shipping was fantastic!! I will most likely buy another in the future for my husband, because of the features and price!!

      Not what its cracked up to be
      Low price shows with product durability. 8 months after purchase, with basic home use, product fail. Poor customer service from WEN products to get fixed.

      Good for cost
      Has slight wobble if trying to make a precise cut. Works good for everyday use though. Slide is not smooth, bag doesn't catch sawdust. I'd recommend throwing it away and just attach a shop-vac instead.

      Good for the DIYer.
      My main motivator for buying this miter saw was the price. There were alot of high priced choices and I'm sure you get what you pay for. This miter saw has the sliding feature that allows you to cut wider boards and this was what I wanted. So far this saw has performed as expected.

      The saw is a great value.
      I was looking for a 10 in. Sliding Compound Miter Saw and the WEN is a great saw for the price. I use it for wood crafts and built a loft bed for my granddaughter and couldn't have done it with out the saw.

      Great for my projects around the house!
      This saw had the most features for the best price and after a couple months of use on projects around the house I am very happy with my purchase! This is my first miter saw so I can't compare to others but this one is pretty nice for my needs. The sliding action is a little rough as others have said.

      Very good saw. Does the job.
      Have used this saw for cutting Hardie Plank, PVC trim, and wood for a siding project on my house. The motor is powerful, and the base is very steady. Have been using it all day for about 5 days now without any issue. The sliding mechanism is a bit rough compared to a DeWalt or Makita, but those saws cost a lot more, so this is to be expected. I put some graphite on the sliders and that improved the action. The whole unit is only 40 lbs, so it is easy to move and setup. Overall, this is a good sliding compound saw for the non professional, and is a capable and well thought out product.
