The saw is great would highly recommend and the features are very good. Compared to the higher end comps, this is a steal, especially if you can catch it on the many sales Sears has for around $199.99. The LaserTrac is a joke and just there as an add on for show and just to say it has one, totally and completely 'USELESS', does not show up unless your in a very low light or dark room with no lights, then you adjust the wood then you turn lights back on for cut. Just forget this sliding miter saw has a laser and you'll be more comfortable making the purchase or for that, owning one. Sears should really recall this laser back and give us all a replacement to add on that reall works, what were they thinking? Bottom line, don't buy this saw at regular price of $299.99, it's really not worth it, wait it out for a sale price.
Got this saw on clearance ... Lazer is a little off but saw is of good quality for the cost you can't pass it up also purchased the stand for all under 300$

Bought this for my husband with the points we had earned. I love getting his tools at sears because with the points I can afford to give him more. He loves the saw and I'm love seeing projects get done.
WOW! What a terrific tool to buy for my husband. He used it to help our neighbor install a laminate floor, then he is going to do the crown molding in my kitchen! And.....it was on sale (bonus!). And...our children purchased the stand for it for Christmas (we have a 10" saw) which works just awesome. I am very pleased with this purchase.
This is an excellent saw for the price. When compared to other saws of the like, the craftsman saw stands with them. You get a very good quality product at a fraction of the price of the competing brands. One can never go wrong when purchasing and using Craftsman products.
I'm installing 750sqft 3/4 oak flooring and the saw has worked great so far. I did install a bosch 80 tooth blade since this came w a 24tooth blade. It cuts through the oak with ease. I am not sure why the laser guide has received some poor reviews as it is easy to see and has been a big time-saver since I only need to put one measure mark on the board. I also have done some mitre cuts on moldings which came out good. I would've preferred the dual-bevel but couldn't justify the price difference - with a single bevel you just have to think more about which way to turn the board. Finally with Sears points i was able to get a discount on the basic mitre saw stand which I'd highly recommend.
This saw does everything that i need and with great cutting power. Easy to manuver and set up. Stays accurate an seldom have to re align the blade. Makes accurate cuts.

Bought this piece of garbage a year ago. It is on it's second trip back to Sears to be repaired. The blade guard just does not want to stay on the saw while cutting. The guard has failed twice now during cuts. Each time catching the saw and breaking apart in my face. Not fun... Paid good money for this saw, I expect a product that works. Sears has failed with regard to this saw and their only response is to take it back to Sears be repaired. And that is only because I purchased the 2 year Master Protection Plan. Spend a little more money and buy a DeWalt or another quality brand. I will never buy another tool from Sears.
