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.
I had problems with my 10 in.saw that could not be fixed. It had been a good saw up until now. I decided to replace it with a 12 inch.bladed saw. It came with a 40 tooth blade which is fine for some projects but needed an 80 tooth blade for finer cuts. I have used it once so far and was very pleased.
This is an accurate and powerful saw. 12' means you can cross cut wide pieces, that I would normally have to use the tablesaw for. One of my best buys.
This is a great saw, especially for what it costs. Glad I didn't spend the extra $50 or $60 on a Dewalt. Very accurate. The only thing is that it might be too much for a rookie woodworker. Even with some experience I had to practice a lot because of the power this thing has.
A very nice miter saw with a couple of exceptions. One, the installed blade does leave a rather rough cut and splintered edges. Two, the sawdust collection bag collects NO sawdust. After about 100 feet of cuts this bag has about one teaspoon of sawdust in it, while the shop vac is almost full from cleaning ALL of the tools and surfaces in the shop that this saw has sprayed!
I've been in the construction field a long time. This is a great saw. Some folks believe the laser is a poor design blah blah blah. I find that it is a great design and it's meant to be used on one side of the saw and not the other. I think that's where most people are getting confused. Overall great piece of machinery.

No issues with this saw! I never count on the dust collection so I don't get too caught up in how that works. Would love to have this in a double bevel but for the price I'll deal with it!
I have this one and the dual bevel and these work great. It has a very smooth start up and sliding. Clamp works good and laser is helpful. Pair this with the shop vac and very little to clean up.
I have this one and the dual bevel and these work great. Smooth start up and the laser is really nice to give you an idea of where you are cutting. Clamp works good and the sliding is smooth.
