Porter-Cable PCL120CRC-2

Price: $130; deltaportercable.com

Highlights: Adjustable shoe hooks onto material to reduce vibration. Its electronic brake slows down the blade after the trigger is released.

My two cents: "The articulating body allowed me to use it under cabinets and in tight spaces between the walls. It was a little jumpy when first biting into the material, but overall this saw was easy to control with one hand and had good power."

Specs: 12 volts (10.8 volts under load), 3.4 pounds, variable speed up to 3,000 strokes per minute, -inch stroke length, built-in LED, three-year tool warranty.
