DEWALT DWE7480 10-inch Compact Job Site Table Saw with Site-Pro Modular Guarding System and On-Board Storage
This model includes a redesigned 15-Amp motor that makes ripping through hardwoods easy, with increased cutting capacity compared to previous DEWALT table saws. The 2-1/4 inch dust collection port on the table saws can connect to a shop vac for efficient dust collection.
Compact and Lightweight for Easy Portability
The DEWALT DWE7480 10-inch Compact Job Site Table Saw with Site-Pro Modular Guarding System features rack and pinion telescoping fence rails which allows user to make fence adjustments fast, smooth and accurate. 24-1/2 inch of rip easily cuts a variety of larger shelving and trim materials. The Site-Pro Modular Guarding System allows for tool free adjustments of the guarding components appropriate for each application. The durable 15 Amp 4800 rpm motor quickly rips through hardwoods with ease. A 24-Tooth carbide blade enhances cut quality and prolongs blade life and the blade can be adjusted 0 - 45 degrees for bevel applications.
The adjustable rear feet are designed to level the saw on uneven work surfaces and table coating reduces friction for smoother cutting. There is a dust port that allows for 2-1/2 inch vacuum hook up and minimizes clean up. The metal roll cage base offers greater durability than plastic bases. This table saw features on-board storage that provides easy access to the Site-Pro Guarding components and push stick when not in use and since the unit only weighs 45 pounds, the DWE7480 can easily be moved on and off the job.

Issues to note:
1) The in-feed length (length of table before the blade) is only about 4.5" (3" before throat-plate). This is an extremely short amount of in-feed. It makes it hard to align parts (even with a feather-board). As you push in it is easy to malign the wood (especially as the pieces get longer) causing a little snipe or worse, kickback. The 7490 has an additional 3" of in-feed (total of about 7.5" or 6" before throat-plate) see photos, which might not sound like much, but makes a big difference. With that extra length and a feather-board, you can have your piece well aligned before it feeds into the blade. Much safer, avoids kickback!!
2) The 7480 has a "flat-track" for the miter gauge instead of the standard "T-track" (again see photos). This is a big deal. Without the T-track keeping the miter gauge in place, it can pop out if you have any pieces more than about 6" in width that you try to crosscut. It gets hairy quickly trying to partially support a wide piece, while aligning it (and with such a short in-feed). Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying you should depend on the T-track to actually support a large piece, but it is easier if your miter gauge isn't flopping out on you..
3) The off switch, ugh. The 7480's switch pulls UP AND OUT which means to shut it off you have to push it down with your hands (see photos). The 7490 has a simple button that pushes IN to start and has a nice "knee switch" that you can bop with your knee very quickly to shut it off. You should never really need this (always plan your cuts safely and have a helper for large pieces..), but it's a good safety feature to be able to quickly shut down these powerful saws.
In totality, these 3 issues are a big deal. Any single issue might not be a problem, but they all play in together to make the 7480 much harder to use. The 7490 also has the longer arbor for use with dado blades and better tool storage. It is a little bit heavier, but I appreciate the slightly larger table top. I'm glad I switched the 7490. I would not recommend the 7480 to friend.
I don't know why the 7490 has a lower average review, it is the same as the 7480 but at $100 more it is much, much more useful and safer. Perhaps people expect that at $100 more it should be a perfect cabinet-grade saw (which is just unrealistic).
Finally, DeWalt's rack-and-pinion fence system is a dream to use. My shop has wide temperature swings and I used to have to re-align my old table-saw's fence almost every time I used it (thermal expansion / contraction). What a pain! This DeWalt fence is rock solid! Simply love it.
Unboxing and setup - Simple and straightforward. The saw is in molded Styrofoam, like a printer. The Styrofoam was crushed a bit in transit, obviously protecting the saw from some bumping around, but the saw and accessories were undamaged. Setup only took about ten minutes, with reading the manual taking most of that time. (Tip: the locking knob for the riving knife needs to be unscrewed three turns and then pushed in before you can slide the riving knife to the through-cut position. I missed that when I first read the manual and was getting really annoyed when the knife wouldn't move...) Assembly is basically just moving the parts to the right spot. The saw is aligned at the factory and mine held the alignment in transit.
Riving Knife and Saw Blade - The stock saw blade is a cheap 24 tooth 10" construction-quality ripping blade. It's nothing fancy, lacking laser-cut anti-resonance slits and having small carbide teeth. I've been cutting maple plywood without any tearout, but the blade is brand-new and still factory sharp...it's a tosser once it gets dull. The cuts are okay, but not what you'll get from a high-quality precision blade. The stock riving knife requires a blade with a minimum kerf of 0.94". That's a problem with many aftermarket blades. Freud Diablo and Irwin Marples blades have a 0.98" kerf and are fine, but their industrial thin-kerf blades have a 0.91" kerf and won't work...make sure you check before buying different blade. There's also an optional thicker riving knife (DeWalt part #N030673), if you want to use a full-kerf blade, but I generally don't recommend that in a portable saw.
Dust Port - The blade housing has an aluminum dust port at the lower back that fits a standard 2-1/2" shop-vac hose. It works pretty well to catch most of the saw dust.
Miter Gauge - The miter gauge is an absolute joke. The protractor part is ABS plastic. There are no detents, so you're guessing when it's set at 90 degrees...to say nothing of any other angle. The pointer sits far above the scale, so parallax adds additional error. It couldn't have cost more than 25 cents to manufacture and it shows. Just plan on buying something that works (Incra makes good ones). Keep the aluminum bar to make some jig and toss the rest.
Fence - Adjusts easily and locks in place without slipping. It can extend out to 24-1/2", so you can rip a sheet of ply down the middle lengthwise.
Tool Storage and portability - All of the pieces clip onto the body of the saw, leaving a flat top. You can store it on it's side, tucked against something without fear of damaging the fence or plastic blade shield. The saw is protected by a steel roll cage. You can still damage it, but it'll take a bit of work. There are two hand-hold grips on either side of the cast aluminum table. It's well balanced when you pick it up.
So...if it wasn't for that stupid miter gauge and cheap blade, I'd give this a solid five stars. Like all direct-drive saws, it's loud, but it's cut everything I've tossed at it without complaining. I really enjoy owing it and expect it to last for many years of hard use. You can't ask for much more.
