From the Manufacturer
The Hitachi C10FCE2 15-Amp 10-Inch Compound Miter Saw has flexible miter angles and compound cutting capability for trim carpenters, framers, and woodworkers who demand precision, reliability and versatility on the job. The 15-amp motor generates a no-load speed of up to 5,000-RPM for making crosscuts and miters with ease, even on the toughest cutting jobs. For ease of use, a comfortable horizontal handle with a vibration-reducing elastomer grip keeps you in control at all times, a large table provides a stable guide and sturdy support and a built-in clamping system holds your workpiece in place. The thumb-actuated positive miter stops allow for simple miter adjustments between 0 and 52-degrees left and right. This design allows you to easily change the angle of the cutting blade for creating miters in crown molding and other trim pieces. The bevel has a range of 45-degrees to the left to provide gorgeous bevels on the first try. The large extended flip fence raises to 4-inches to allow for accurate cutting of large workpieces up to 2-5/16-inches high and 5-21/32-inches deep. A dust collector minimizes the accumulation of dust and particles and the easily accessible carbon brushes will help your saw perform for the long term. This tool provides smooth, accurate miters and crosscuts with wood, plywood, decorative panels, soft fiberboard, hard board, and aluminum sashes. Weighing just 26.3-pounds, the C10FCE2 is the lightest 10-inch compound miter saw in its class.

Top Customer Reviews
This saw changed that completely; it is spectacular, seriously. The 5 year warranty is great to have, it cut square immediately out of the box and has plenty of power. The blade it comes with isn't too bad either, though I still put a Freud combination blade on it just to be safe. One thing I noticed is that there isn't any wobble when it's straight up; if you push against the handle a bit the only thing that flexs is the handle not anything else so it can only cut square versus cheaper models often have some movement and require much more care and aren't always accurate.
For $120 this is a steal in my opinion because all you have to do is get it out of the box, plug it in, and cut. Seriously, I cannot recommend this saw enough even for professionals like myself. Hitatchi has a new fan and I can promise I will be buying more very soon!
That being said, at $150 things change and the saw is much less of a good deal.
1) Reasonably well built, sturdy
2) Good powerful motor- saw can handle most framing materials, hardwoods, and lumber with ease- up to the width of a 2x6 in one pass.
3) Lots of goodies included- laser, material clamp, extension bars. In this respect this is a good package that is all inclusive. If you shop around you'll see that some of the higher end saws lack these essentials.
4) Stock 24T Hitachi blade is surprising good for general use. Though it might not be as fine as you like for cutting hardwoods, for MDF, framing lumber this works just fine. You'll want to get a higher tooth count blade to avoid chipping out and for smoother cuts on hardwood and plywood.
5) Light, and portable- a big plus if you are a contractor hauling it from jobsite to jobsite. Non-issue if set up for permanent bench top use.
6) Miter stops are generally good and give positive feedback. Locking down for overriding the miter stops is easy and secure.
7) Warranty is unparalleled- five years. Hitachi will stand by this for the years to come.
1) Laser is not very accurate out of the box- you will need to align your laser to either blade left or right- pick one, and stick to it for all your cuts. I've seen saws come from the factory with the laser center aligned- no good and you'll have to guess each time. I don't like lasers for miter saws in general, but it comes with it, so you might as well learn to use it properly.
2) Blade guard lock (a metal bar you have to unlock between blade changes) screws come over-torqued out of the box. Be careful as you will easily strip out the screw by forcing too hard to undo it.
3) Blade changes while holding the blade guard open with one hand and holding down the blade lock, and unscrewing the arbor bolt with your other hand is awkward.
4) Table area is small compared to other brands, and also fence space is limited due to the motor design- this is a workaround if you need to make jigs and or holders for your work pieces.
5) Dust evacuation is a joke. I would venture to say that the bag picks up about 30% of actual dust generated during cutting. Even with attached shop vac, doesn't help much.
6) Availability of accessories is questionable- if you use this to cut crown, you will want to have the crown stops. It's difficult to make your own jig to hold the crown to the fence and upside down, and unless you can cut your crown using the compound method (which will work great if all your walls and corners are perfect 90 degrees), you will want some accuracy. The fence is barely tall enough for 4.25 inch crown, especially the right fence. Ycan buy crown stops for this- but they are harder to find, and they are very expensive compared to the $25 you'd spend on Dewalt crown stops.
In short, great saw for under $140- above $140, not that good of a deal anymore, but still a good, complete starter package with the safety devices you will want for safe operation. You can easily trim out a house with this saw- base moulding, door/window casings, panel mouldings, chair rails, etc. However, if you plan on cutting crown, which is probably more of an advanced/intermediate use- may I suggest the Dewalt DW713 or DW715 with DW7084 crown stops- easy to find accessories for those saws, and the LED work light system is a blast to use. The DW713 is my workhorse and go to saw for crown moulding. That being said, I'm sure the Hitachi is defintely usable if you can get the crown holders, if you can find them- or if you can construct a proper functioning jig to hold it- difficult to work around the motor size/shape though.
Either way you go, I would make sure you get crown holders/stops such that your crown cuts will be more accurate and repeatable.
