Great saw, great price...I don't think the redesign created any problems
6 June 2015
Summary: I got really nervous when I saw that this had been redesigned at some point and that the "most helpful" reviews were pre-redesign...but we got this saw and we love it. It is our first miter saw--we bought it so that we could install baseboards throughout our house, and it has been perfectly accurate...
Summary: I had to return this miter saw and am currently waiting on a replacement. The base would not rotate at all. I finally realized that the base was cocked in the frame. The left fence was jammed against the base while the right fence had a huge gap.
Summary: Perfect! I'm somewhat of a tool snob. I grew up working with my dad on many different projects and you learn quickly that only the best tools hold up well. He has always used a Dewalt miter saw (although bigger than the one I bought) and we have always had excellent results from his Dewalt tools.

Summary: This is a really nice saw. I went with the 12 inch because I was going to be cutting a lot of tall baseboard. After having it a few years, it still works great. I'm pretty loyal to the DeWalt brand. I do have a little buyers remorse and wish I paid extra for the 12" sliding miter saw.
Summary: It arrived in perfect adjustment and made the repeatable miter cuts I needed in order to finish a project. I see no reason why the compound miters won't turn out just as well. You will need a different saw blade if you're planning on doing finish work as it comes equipped with a fairly aggressive...
Summary: Used this saw extensively in the first 2 months I had it building a shed. Worked great - i love it. It was also about $70 cheaper than I could get it anywhere else at the time. Very helpful when setting up cuts for different angles when I was building the trusses.
Summary: I purchased this saw to replace the same model that I have been using for the last 20 years. My old one finally burned up this summer. I really like this miter saw. Dewalt has made some nice improvements over the years to this basic miter saw.
Summary: I broke my other saw so I needed a new one. The ease of use on this machine is amazing. I love how when I need to change degrees of cuts or angles that it can be done in seconds. I wish I could give it a 4.5 star because it does not have a laser line for where the cut will be.

Summary: I bought the miter saw to cut crown molding and it worked with fantastic results. The built in stops for the angles make cutting crown easy. The bag does a great job collecting the saw dust making clean up a snap.
