My miter saw was a present for Christmas 2 years ago. It's a 10" Craftsman with a laser. I know this saw was under $200. The best thing I can say about it is once I changed the blade I was happy with my results. None of the factory extra's impressed me. The table extension that came with mine is not to be trusted for being square to the table. The dust collection bag is useless, even with a small shop vac attached to the port most of the dust escapes. The electronic brake works well, the pivot stops for the miter are pretty close to dead on. It is a valuable part of my workshop. I am planning on building a bench with wooden extension tables and an extended fence this spring. I feel that for the money this saw is a good value. Keep in mind that the saws with a single laser usually project the line on the left side of your cut. This makes it easy for the majority of work. A twin laser system projects a line on each side of the blade which would be a benefit to a production shop.
