Compound Mitre Saw - Sliding - 12" - 15 A is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 155.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw for do it yourself and pros I use this saw everyday and love the auto tilt bevel locks and cuts perfect. I do wish the saw dust system wasn't a mile long tube to the bag. Clogs up right away. The fence slides are hard to slide out and have to get hit with my hammer to extend them. I would like to see dewalt set up a different slide system, with the bag on the back I hack to have over 3to4 feet from a wall so my saw has clearance makes cutting in hallways on big jobs impossible. I would also like the saw to have a little more rpm saw bogs down on cuts and causes the blade to warp in my cuts also. I also would like a laser and tape measure marks on the saw fence or even on the platform for fast cuts. Great saw but could be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% the best buy for the money Purchased saw when Lowes ran a special that included the base stand, a $200 dollar option, for FREE. I am so happy I did so. Such an awesome addition to my shop. At first I was torn between the Bosch and this, the free stand sold me and I don't regret it for one second. Angle cuts are spot on, the light is spot on, almost everything about this is perfect. The only thing I'd improve on for this saw are the clamps and the blade depth stop. Those two aspects are the only thing I see that my buddies K-Pex does better, but at $1200s for a K-Pex no thanks. When cutting tenons use a spacer against the back stop and it'll work just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool I own This saw has all the professional contractor level features, yet is very immediate level DIY'er friendly. I'm not a professional contractor, but with this saw, my mid level DIY skills and attention to detail, the work I've done to date, looks very professionally done. My only con is that at my age, carrying a 50 to 60 lb miter saw in and out of storage every time I want to use it, is going to be a pain in alot of places. i made the mistake of choosing the "heavy duty" miter saw stand instead of the "rolling" stand. That mistake will be rectified (smile).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw I have owned I previously had the ridgid 12” saw which I was able to pick up for 100 dollars cheaper than the dewalt. The two saws don’t even compare in my opinion. After having issues squaring up the ridgid saw and the blade guard completely failing on me I returned it to Home Depot and purchased this saw. The dewalt was completely squared out of the box. Also angle adjustment on the dewalt is far superior. The slides are smoother and the overall footprint is smaller and lighter. I do recommend changing the blade that comes with the dewalt to something nicer like a diablo. Overall I highly recommend [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw, awesome price Ordered mine online, had $200 off of price plus an online order discount, paid a little over $500, quite happy with that price. VERY IMPORTANT SOLVED ISSUE, RAIL RESISTANCE the biggest thing I had an issue with was when I first took it out of the package to test it, the saw had a lot of resistance moving on the rails, I read through the manual and looked all over to find what was causing it to bind with no luck, I was contemplating having to send it back thinking "this is why it was so cheap", luckily I kept reading for a solution and I did find out that there is a tiny little Allen key set-screw behind (almost under) the tension knob, once I adjusted that it glided without resistance, I was glad that I didn't have to return it, such a sturdy versatile saw. Note: use a 5/32 allen key to adjust it cheers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saw! The Dewalt DWS780 Miter Saw is a great buy for anyone wanting a powerful and reliable saw for the job site. I am a contractor and have used many miter saws, this is my favorite. The dual bevel functionality with the large fence makes for quickly handeling complicated cuts on crown and othe moldings. The fence does need to been extended out to the maximum outer setting for 45 bevel cuts. The saw weighs about 50lbs making for use with a rolling stand preferable if you plan to take it to and from jobsites. Would have rated 4.5, but couldnt. Weight and the fence adjust are only downside. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth it Reading reviews will turn your head around so I went to the store and ran the saws thru the paces (without power of course) I narrowed it down to this one and the Bosch GCM12. I thought the Bosch "sliding" system is by far the best out there. (Bosch) Neither seemed to have much movement with the head fully extended. (tie) Bevel adj. (Bosch) The flip out crown extensions that add to the fence length on the Bosch beats the sliders that every other saw does. (Bosch) The shadow blade alignment is simply FANTASTIC on the Dewalt. The Bosch has no alignment help. Lets get back to the shadow feature. You turn on a light switch and lower your blade, It will cast a shadow exactly where cut is going to be. No set up. NICE! (DEWALT all in caps because this is awesome) Price (Dewalt) The deciding point for me was the free stand. Now that I'm using this saw it is an excellent tool. Right out of the box it was spot on no adjustments needed. A real time saver. Everything moves easily and if you can get the ($200) stand for free it's a no brainer. My only complaint so far is you really have to slide the fence just about off if beveling 45 degrees left. But once you see that's the way it is no biggie. No free stand offered and you have an extra $50? Flip a coin over the this one and the Bosch.
