I am right handed but only like the saws with blades on left.

I take almost every crosscut to the miter saw, so for me a circular saw is only for cutting sheet goods so they will fit on the tablesaw, and the occasional trimming of large wainscoting panels. The Bosch is a nice saw with good cut-line visibility for right handed users. Power is more than adequate. It follows a clamp and guide straightedge very well.
My only negatives are minor...
1. The blade it comes with is carbide, but for framing. I switched to a 40 tooth Freud as I do with all my saws. The stock blade has a tendency to kick back, while the Freud will not. P.S. the blade goes on backwards for left-blade saws. IE: the Bosch blade is installed with logo facing outward, but Freud and other blades install with the logo facing inward.

2. The saw is a little heavier than a 6-1/2" circular saw, but is has more power too. I chose this saw over the smaller versions for its ability to perform standard framing cuts. I think it weighs about 10 lbs.

3. There is no safety switch. You know that little button you depress before you can start the saw? The Bosch doesn't have one. I never cock the blade gaurd back with a pencil, so it's not an issue for me. Just be careful.

The construction is robust, and fit and finish is good. It comes with some nice features like an onboard blade wrench, and a tool-free spindle lock. Very Nice.

As a deck builder, I use this saw EVERY day, cutting extremely hard woods like ipe and garrapa. This saw, like all 15amp, circular saws can handle the wood and any kind of cut. I use only top quality Diablo blades, and regularly perform finger rips and compound miters without any issues with the motor bogging down and blade deflection. I also regularly have to rip wet PT wood, and this saw handles it all fine. This is a great saw and a great price, the blade-left design provides excellent line of sight when cutting with your right hand. Very lite weight and powerful, with all cast-metal parts and a tape on the foot. I'd like a detent at the common bevel cuts (22.5 and 45) but it's fine without it. Unfortunately, it requires a lot of strength to get the plate back to square (0 degree bevel)

UPDATE; I've been using the saw daily now for 2 months and I really like cutting with it. I'm a deck builder and this is a primary tool for me, it's held up well so far.

UPDATE; 6 months in of daily abuse and the saw has held up pretty nice. I did bend the foot some in a fall but it's pounded flat now and is cutting fine.

UPDATE; 9 months in and all I can say is that the saw is holding up really well. The plate bevel is still a bit tough to square up and I'd like to find one with an electric brake. Otherwise, great quality saw that has seen tons of use and abuse and stood its ground.

One real complaint; when you're cutting right-handed, the dust is directed right into your shoes and nailbags. The blade-left saw doesn't have a Bosch dust chute accessory available, and this saw really needs one. When you're cutting a post from right to left, the dust is projected straight up, into your face and eyes. Bosch needs a dust chute for the CS-5.

Ive been using this saw now for about a week and I think its great. This is the first left blade saw Ive owned. I don't think I could ever go back to the right bladed saws. This saw makes cutting lumber a piece of cake, whether you're cutting 2x4s or plywood, having that clear line of sight really allows you to see what your cutting. Did I mention how powerful this saw is? This little gem of a saw doesn't complain one bit as you cut through a wet 2x. The blade guard works smoothly without binding. All the adjustments are done with levers, not wing nuts. Cutting depth and cutting angles are a snap to set up. There is also a little blade change wrench attached to the shoe. If there's one complaint its that this saw didn't come with a rip guide. That's a very minor thing that does not detract from the overall quality of the saw. I paid about $85 for the saw with free shipping which makes this saw a super value. A comparable product might go for $50 more. If you're in the market for a left blade saw, you should give this beauty serious consideration.

Light weight, powerful. If you're standing at a cut station all day buy a worm drive. If you are up and down ladders, topping posts, doing "surgical cuts" this is a great saw. Simple design, practical.

I borrowed a Bosch 4" left bladed circular saw several years ago and loved it so when I came across this larger saw I jumped on it. The price was great and I've always been happy with Bosch. This saw is fantastic. A tad noisy but smooth and strong. I too was a little surprised to find I needed a container attached to me to catch all the sawdust coming my way. This is a small price to pay for the accuracy of the left bladed cut.

this is my first left hand circular saw and it is very nice. i have used alot of saws the last 20 years (milwaukee,makita,dewalt,etc) and this one is up towards the top.

it is lightweight and has plenty of power. the base is solid and flat. easy thumb lock adjustments.

for you guys wanting to try out a l/h saw this is an excellent choice. i didnt find any downsides to list. great saw at a great price i would recommend to anyone.
