This may not be the most feature rich miter saw on the market but everything it does, it does great. Build quality is the best I've seen in this category.
On of the deciding factors for me was the weight of the machine. My old sliding saw weighs about 75 lbs. This saw weighs about 35 lbs. and I can still cut about 8" wide. Which is good enough for just about everything I do.
The manual includes instructions for replacing the motor brushes, a good sign that this is a tool designed to last.

The vertical vise and side extensions are incredibly useful for making precision cuts. Would highly recommend to anyone.
