This is a great saw for the price. Perfect for your average homeowner. The included blade cuts nice finished edges, the sliders are smooth, and the laser is dead-nuts accurate (some people have complained of it being off a bit, but I think that's just manufacturing issues). I only have one complaint. Miter saws are inherently messy tools. Dust collection has never really been 100%, but this one in particular is terrible in that respect. After multiple cuts, nearly none of the dust made it into the collection bag. If you actually look at the way the saw was designed, it's obvious why it doesn't collect dust as it should. The saw spits the dust straight back towards the rear of the saw, but the collection inlet is nearly halfway up the blade and not level with the cutting surface. While I understand for the purposes of being able to slide the saw like a radial arm would be inhibited by a lower hanging chute, some simple flexible material (like some other manufacturers use) to help send the dust upward would be a nice addition. Even with a vacuum hooked up to where the bag would go, I only saw ~50% reduction in dust. The dust issue isn't enough to lower a star on this, as it's a great saw, and it's just the nature of miter saws to be messy.
I love this thing. I create reasons to use it. It makes all the basic cuts you need for baseboard, crown molding, hardwood laminate, whatever. This thing is a beast.
I needed an efficient and accurate way to cut some 10 inch wide oak stair treads and risers. The WOOD Magazine review gave this saw the thumbs up so I bought it and have been very satisfied with it's performance. I already had a good 10 inch non-sliding compound miter saw and didn't want to invest in an expensive slider. I wasn't sure what to expect from this Sears saw but I would recommend it. I was also prepared to replace the blade that came with the saw with a premium blade but the supplied blade has done a very good job and I have continued using it.
Bought this 12/2/13. Used it for woodworking, table angle lock was a little finicky but all in all, not bad. Then, after 1 year and 2 weeks, I went to move the table angle, squeezed the handle to release the catch, and it snapped off in my hand. Now that it's past 1 year, well, that's too bad. It's sad but true, that Craftsman doesn't mean what it used to mean: quality.

It took minimal fiddling with the saw to get it set up for the first cut, which after tweaking a few adjustments was perfectly square (my first test cut was off though because it was not set at the dead stop for the bevel I guess due to the shipping and so i had a slight bevel on my first test cut).
