Good question Birch. A lot depends on how you will be using the saw. If you need the ability to cut larger lumber then a sliding 12" saw is right for you. If you are an average home woodworker you will most likely get by fine with a 10" saw. Having your blades interchangeable between your saws can be a great money saver. If I was to purchase a new saw I think it would be a Bosch. The saw I have was a Christmas present, a 10" Craftsman with a laser guide. I am used to double checking and verifying all adjustments on anything Craftsman so I get good results. I used a Black & Decker 10" saw while helping refinish a basement last spring. I was pleasantly surprised by it's performance, they have come a long way. None of the saws mentioned will make you happy if you use low quality blades. I have had great success with Freud blades and will stick with them. A tough decision, let us know what you decide on and how you like it.
