Excerpt: I was a bit skeptical about the packaging when the saw arrived, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the contents of the box were in fine shape. I carefully checked the accuracy of the saw settings and found that they were spot on, right out of the box. The saw appears to be brand new - I like that about CPO. I needed to replace a 10" compound slider and initially thought I would purchase another 10" compound slider.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Design, Great Blade, Powerful, Safe
Excerpt: I use this saw extensively to make 45 degree cuts. Perfect ninety every time! I've also used it to make compound miter cuts and its beauty is in its reversibility. So nice to have the ability to just match the angle from the other side and not having to think upside down! I prefer this saw to the ones with rails. Its doesn't kick out the small pieces and is therefore much safer to use. I highly recommend this saw.
Pros: Accurate Cuts Every Time, Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Powerful
Summary: The advertisement on this saw was so vague that I was unable to tell that it was not equipped to accept the LED or Laser light system, there are no prewired connections, also the back fence is plastic, I complained and was given free return and a full refund, after the Amazon agents agreed that their advertisement was lacking information, types 1 thru 4 will be prewired for lights and laser, but the type they sent me will not.
Summary: Just received my DW716 from Amazon, stand and the LED light. First thing was to install the LED but I couldn't find the place to connect it. I went to YouTube and looked at a great installation video to make sure I wasn't missing something. So since the unit wasn't as described on Amazon, I am sending everything back at Amazon's cost. Then went to the local Lowe's store.
Excerpt: The machine was obviously used and not refurbished to factory conditions. The aluminum base had much scratching, which does not affect the use of the machine, and the kerf plate had saw cuts on it and should have been replaced. For me the savings didn't justify the condition of the saw I received.
