A good bargain if you're looking for an entry-level slider

+Hits: It has the best fence among the $200 10" sliders we tested. Color-coded markings help to locate the most common miter angles quickly. Built-in table extensions add 8" of support to each side with cutoff stops. The rails are covered by a hood to keep dust from building up.
-Misses: It bogged down slightly when cutting thick hardwoods, requiring a slower feed rate, and the sliding action and table pivot felt stiffer than most. This saw bevels only to the left, and the blade guard gets in the way when making 45° beveled cuts. Dust kept building up on the rear-mounted laser, lessening its usefulness. Activating the safety switch and trigger simultaneously proved awkward. We'd like to have a place on the saw to store the included blade-changing tool.

Another one that has perfomed for years

It does a very good job. I have had it for 4 years, I use it for most of my projects. Very glad I bought it.
