Summary: I've purchased two of these for $200/ea, one for me and one for my father in law. Both have performed flawlessly. I've made several shelves and completely re-floored the house in hardwoods, making accurate cuts every time. After two years, it's still running strong.
Summary: Received yesterday and put right to work framing. The saw was fully assembled and true and cut well. Would be 5 stars, but: I went through the saw and packaging several times looking for the steel tube extension that holds long material level with the saw, but IT ISN"T IN THERE!
Beware, brother, beware: It is not exactly a DW715. But it is.

Summary: A quality saw. But. It should be called the "DW715-3" so the customer could have a fighting chance. You see they designed out compatibility with their own accessories labelled "for the DW715". Don't go buy the DWS7085 LED light - it's really cool, but it is not for you. So sad!
Dynamite saw! My friend has the same exact one ...

Summary: Dynamite saw! My friend has the same exact one. Got it for Christmas. Paid a lot more. Only one complaint, when tilted to 45 degrees, the bracket that holds the blade guard hits the adjustable fence unless you pull it back.
Summary: My father in law let me borrow his for a couple months. His is several years old, and they both work like a champ. This one has a better angle adjustment. It loses a star, however, because changing blades is unnecessarily difficult.
Great saw, great price...I don't think the redesign created any problems

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...
