Save your money, this saw is a BIG dissappointment!!
4 May 2015
Excerpt: This saw is good if you're an average homeowner, but if you're ANY MORE than that, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GET THIS SAW!! Don't believe me? Go find one in a store and try it, or buy one and try it first.
Pros: Absolutely Nothing, Absolutely Nothing At All, Looks good
Cons: Blade Wears Out Fast, Difficult To Use, Inaccurate, Inadequate Safety Features, Poor Design, Rough Slide, Severely Underpowered, Slow Cutting Speed, Unreliable, Xps Light Is A Joke
Summary: Really nice saw. Came fully assembled. When I checked the alignment, it was dead on. Really like the"aiming" system. Can see where it could be more accurate than the laser systems. Blade supplied was of medium quality which would work fine for coarser projects like decking and siding.
Summary: I used to work for a stair company building treads, rails, elliptical and circular stairs. We had one of these in the shop and I fell in love with it. It is so easy to use and the cuts are precise.
Summary: Oh boy, if only they allowed for six stars, I would rate this saw even higher. It is one of those purchased products that one hopes will meet my expectations, but it exceeds them! Specifically, it came out of the box set up dead nuts on.
Summary: I was a little nervous after reading reviews claiming sticky slides. My DWS780 arrived in a beat-up box, but the saw was perfect when it came out of that box. Perfectly in square, both bevel and miter. The slides run as smooth as silk, not the slightest catch or crunch.
Summary: It is the best Compound Miter Saw I have had, the angled cuts are accurate and clean. I like the XPS system it uses for lining up the cuts, not only it is accurate it also provides nice light for the cutting area.
