Compound Mitre Saw - Sliding - 12" - 15 A is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 265.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw is a beast, strong, heavy and well built This is a great saw. For the casual DIY enthusiast it may be overkill, but if you find yourself needing to make longer cuts, this saw can but up to 16 inches thanks to the sliding saw. It is well worth the price. There is a newer version but I was more than impressed with this one. I have added the Dewalt Rolling Universal Miter Saw Stand (item 500305922) to make it even better since it is a heavy saw mounting it on the saw stand makes it very easy to move around. I found changing the blade very easy and setting the miter angle is also very easy. The exhaust is very powerful which means less mess if you attach the dust bag or even a shop vac to the exhaust pipe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Item:97 Part:N401778 Description:COVER Before turning on the saw I checked it for alignment and movement. I noticed the blade would hit something when moved back and forth so I took the kerf plates of and noticed a raised area of the plastic cover under the kerf. I did my internet research and found a couple other instances where customers noted this same problem. I also looked at a store model and it did not have the raised area on this part. I then called Dewalt and their support had no information about this being reported as a problem. The rep took my information and said she would forward it up the chain. I decided I would just let the blade cut the plastic since it couldn't hurt the blade and everything works just fine. I did some test cuts with the supplied blade and a new 80 tooth blade and this saw works like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw The accuracy and precision is the same cut after cut. Love the dewalt product line. Haven't found a tool that hasn't meet a less than ideal lifespan to date. Great saw. Would recommend the stand, as with any miter saw, if you can't afford it. I'll have to wait. Saw does have some weight to it, but it's built solid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for your buck! Did a lot of research on miter saws before buying this one. I decided i wanted a saw that was capable of cutting everything that i might encounter and then some. Out of the box it was fairly straight forward. I was able to frame some areas in the house without any adjustments to the saw. Angle cuts were pretty spot on. Not exactly the type of saw i would buy if i was plaaning to transport it often as it is not the lightest one out there. Dust collection could definitely be better but whos afraid of a little man glitter. I definitely made the right choice as this saw should do anything i need it to, making precise cuts from the get go. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saw Love the DWS779 great saw. Same saw as the 780 without the light. A light wasn't worth 200 more dollars to me. I'm a DIY guy not a pro. Saw does all I need and more. Best money I could spend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost 5-stars Overall, I have been very pleased with this Dewalt Miter saw. I tried saving money by purchasing this model instead of the newest model which features the laser/light guide that casts a shadow on material that is being cut. From the research I gathered that was the only major difference between the two models. It has performed very well. I have built a shed, some small furniture, and laid out various trim pieces in my house. The only issue I have encountered is the blade stop doesn’t keep the blade from engaging the bottom of the blade guide. Apparently this is an ongoing issue with this model. I’ve talked to various people with this model and all have had the same problem. To solve I super glued a small washer near the blade stop which keeps it from falling all the way down. Easy fix but would expect a little more quality control from Dewalt. Especially for the price we pay for their tools. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DEWALT 12-in 15-Amp Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Mi Great saw. Read manual before using. Lots of adjustments and features that you need to know before setting out so saw isn't damaged

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewalt 12" miter saw DWS779 The saw is a great for $399.00 at Lowe's. Saw cuts great! Accuracy is dead-on. It comes with a 32-tooth blade so I change it for an 80 tooth for trim.
