Excellent saw that finally allows you to see where your cutting. Solid build and plenty of power. The Bosch blade that comes with it is a good one, but went ahead and got a Freud blade just in case. Now for the reason I'm writing this review. I only gave it 4 stars because it lacks a carry case (also a rip fence, but that is no big deal for me). Trying to find a case to fit this saw has been a challenge, but I found a tool box at Home Depot that is as close to a match as can be had. I searched the web, Lowes, Sears....etc and this one does the trick - Husky 22 in. Wide Body Tool Box - Model # 17191706. Heavy plastic body and excellent locking clasp. The height and depth is exactly perfect and the length leaves a few inches on each end for extra blades, couple pairs of gloves...etc. When you sit the saw down in the middle of the box, it stays in place because of the way the box is made. No, it does not bulge out the sides, the fit is exact, but it does have ridges internally that holds it in the middle. For 25 bucks, it is well worth the investment for a saw of this caliber. The only better solution is if Bosch made a case for this saw (which they should have, but didn't). Hope this helps those folks looking for a case solution. As far as I'm concerned, it solved it for me.

A nice simple basic design, but I just wish the quality was better!

I love the left side view of the blade and will only buy this style in the future even if I have to accept a complete saw-dusting of my clothes. I spent a good amount of time cutting specially ordered tough 1" Baltic Birch plywood using a Freud 60T blade and the power is fine for about 1" per second. While overall this saw is good for the home user I think the quality is lacking for the more picky. The problem is that there is considerable flex in the platform (even with the set screw adjusted) and there is about 0.5mm of play in the motor shaft which translates into much more play at blade edge. Even at this price such slop in the motor seems excessive. I am admittedly looking for more precision since I am finding a circular saw with a good self made rip fence to be superior to my table saw. If I could make the purchase again I would perhaps look at the Bosch 1677MD to see if the precision is better.

I had been wanting to replace my 40 year old B & D saw and thought I would try a saw with the blade to the left of the motor. Most of the battery powered saws are configured this way, but there are just a few corded saws, including the worm-drive models. Since I'm a right-hander, I find the blade lines up very well for me and I don't have to lean across the saw to see what I'm cutting.

Until you've used one, you don't realize how much nicer a left-bladed saw is (that is if you're right-handed)! Can actually see what you're cutting--safer and more accurate. Downsides (sometimes sawdust flying at you) are minor in comparison to the convenience of it. This one is powerful enough and relatively light-weight (another must) in addition to being left-bladed and reasonably priced. Perfect for the handiman user, altho my brother (a contractor) prefers the same for many of his smaller jobs.

The Bosch CS5 replaced a 20 year old Craftsman that I finally burned out. Boy have circular saws changed in the last 20 years. In the couple times I have used it I found that it is lighter and more powerful then I expected. I particularly like the left sided blade which for me makes it much easier to see the cut. Adjustments, (arbor angle, depth of cut) are very easy and quick to make. I found that it had plenty of power for my needs, but then I'm not a professional user. I also feel that Bosch power tools are dependable and well built. This is my fourth Bosch power tool and I've not had any problems. (OK, maybe operator error)
I don't know if it would be appropriate for the pro but if you are a weekender like me I highly recommend it.

I was looking for a powerful saw with a left blade design. This fits the bill perfectly. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is how the saw dust can have a tendency to be blown in your face.

I purchased this circular saw from Amazon when I was putting together plans for a photobooth project. I used the saw to do rip cuts and other assorted cuts of plywood, 2x4, 1x1's and other pieces of wood.

The saw worked to perfection, I used it in combination with the Kreg Rip-Cut tool to get great straight cuts on my plywood and longer sections. I used it in concert with a sawhorse and some clamps to get great angled cuts. This tool can essentially replace a table saw and miter saw for "simpler" projects. I would saw that if one had a small budget, that the circular saw should be the first tool that you purchase. It is the tool that gives you the most bang for your buck.

This particular Bosch saw works perfectly, its easy to change the blades, the plunge depth and the angle of the cuts. I had not issues with any play in any of the settings on the saw (I've had this issue with some other saws which I've used). The saw cuts straight and true and being left-sighted makes it alot easier to see your markings and to make great straight long cuts.

The saw has really got me into the Bosch brand and will be looking at them first when going to buy additional power tools.
