Lining up difficult cuts is a breeze with the precise laser, and the easy-to-use side extensions and stops make this a good saw for repetitive cuts. The motor bogged down when cutting thicker lumber, but the comfortable miter-adjustment handle and a smart selection of features still make it a good buy.
