This power saw provides great quality for any do-it-yourself home project. Personally, I would be hesitant to use it on a professional job where it would be used all-day every day, but for home use, it is great. The laser trac helps keep a straight cut, even when not using a straight-edge guide. The guards provide safety and piece of mind, although one still needs to exercise care when using any power tools. But these particular guards are protective while not being intrusive on the work. Adjustments for various angle cuts also provide a wide variety of options for possible cuts and different types of projects. Adjustable depth also helps ensure that one is not cutting too deeply when simply trying to make a shallow cut. Replacement blades are also typically easy to find. All around, this is a high quality saw, and provides a good value for the price that is paid.
