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.
Within two months of purchase the handle broke and I had to send it in for repairs. But the most aggravating thing is the inaccuracy. The back fence is not even straight! The fences on each side of the blade are on a slightly different angle making it impossible to get a really good angled cut. Your 45's will never meet up correctly even when you adjust the blade with a protractor. Also the laser is insultingly useless. The beam is not even parallel to the saw blade.
This saw feels very sturdy (unlike the 10" saw). It operates very smoothly. It makes quick, straight and clean cuts. Included directions are excellent. I looked for months to see what I could find of similar quality for less than I paid for this saw ($200) and couldn't come close to finding anything. I am very happy with this purchase.

I got this saw from my wife for our aniv. as a replacement for my Ryobi 10" CMS. The slide is a great feature for cutting wide boards. The Laser on this saw is EXTREMELY accurate and allows me to actually use it with no problems. I am trilled with the overall performance. I mounted it to my Ryobi Mitor stand and it works perfect. The slide outs on this saw are great because they fill the space in between the Ryobi stand and the Mitor Saw. I'm going to purchase a few different blades because the universal blade that is included isn't great at cutting extremely clean molding cuts. No complaints.
Very easy and solid to use. Has everything you need to do your projects around the house. Cuts on angles, sliding, laser, etc.... Very impress! My neighbors are jealous when I first brought this out to display in my backyard to cut some trim for my home. Both neighbors from each side of my house came over and gave me good compliments on this. I use this with the Craftsman Quick Lift? Gravity Stand, the two fit together like solid puzzles. Very happy.
I was somewhat concerned about the miter angle assembly when looking at the floor model. It wasn't a smooth locking action, and when the set screw was tightened, the angle changed slightly. Salesman said they didn't have returns on it, and this floor model may have had a problem. I gambled and took one home. After setup I had 2nd thoughts, looked again at other name brands which were all constructed better, and decided to return it. It is the lowest price saw of this size, and if you are not doing fine work it may be satisfactory.
