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.
Summary: I really like the saw. I bought it to trim the interior of my house. Out of the box, the saw I received was not square in either plane. Spend about an hour truing the saw before jumping into your first project.
Summary: I purchased this machine as an upgrade to my 12" Delta miter saw. The Delta did not have a sliding blade, and I was limited to the width of a board I could cut on it as a result. The Dewalt's sliding mechanism has provided all of the capacity that I've required to crosscut rough stock before it goes...
Summary: High quality product... works great. The light on the blade is wonderful. Better than a laser because the light is on both sides of the blade casting a shadow on the object to be cut EXACTLY the width of the blade and exactly where it will cut.
