A couple of years ago we rebuilt our deck and 'old school' hot tub. I hadn't planned to rebuild the tub however it was quite badly rotted out by termites. We purchased some redwood 4 x 6 planks from Home Depot and then needed to angle each edge so they would join correctly when re-assembled in the circlular shape of the tub. Since it was a one time project I decided to buy the lowest price table saw I could find which I thought was capable of doing the job. I have to say that this saw is a very versatile saw. The blade is very easy to set at an angle however I would recommend using an angle finder as opposed to the angle gauge that comes fitted to the saw. I'd make the same comment about the rip fence as it is possible to lock it in place at a slight angle which can cause the blade and the wood to bind. These are minor though and what you might expect to have to do with a value priced product. My main complaints about this saw are the serrated jaws that stop the wood kicking back after it goes through the blade just got in the way and lightly scratched softer wood so I tied them up so they don't interfere with the wood going through the blade and it feeds through much more smoothly. The setscrew that holds the blade shield can also loosen with use and this allows the assembly to fall out of alignment with the blade which can also interfere with the wood as it goes through the saw. The rubber protectors that are supplied for the bottom of the support table frame will fall off when you move the saw around so glue them in place like we did. Finally, the handle that you use to lock down the rip fence can get in the way of the wood if you're lining up by sight rather than by measurement. Since buying this saw, we've used it to rebuild the hot tub, ripped an entire bundle of 100+ 2x4x12s lengthways for a roofing project, used it to rip engineered wooden flooring for our living room and most recently ripped 1/2" plywood sheets for curtain valance boxes. For the larger sheets of plywood, the saw bed isn't that large and can become a little unstable so it pays to have a second person to hold the saw bed firmly when feeding these through. Throughout all these projects the blade has remained sharp and hasn't been changed out as yet. When not in use, you can quickly dismantle the stand and simply sit it on a shelf for the next project.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, easy to set up, compact storage when not in use
Cons: rubber stand feet do fall off, kick back device gets in the way

This is a good small saw for home use furniture and craft projects. I've used it to for several projects now and have been very pleased. Keep your expectations in line with what this saw is, its a hobby saw, it won't be suitable for contractor type construction and don't expect it to perform like a $2,000 saw.
There are a couple of things you need to know:
1- if you don't know how to use a table saw, learn how, watch videos, tons of videos, read books, ask a friend, whatever, learn how to use it safely.
2- the rip fence that comes with this saw I have found to be accurate, just double check your measurements from several points and you should be ok
3- the miter gauge that comes with this saw is almost useless. It does not sit snugly in the groove and is way too small to be useful with larger pieces of stock. So you must learn to build yourself some jigs, do this and you can forget about the horrible miter gauge. If the images attach properly to this review you can see some of the jigs I made, as well as a few of the projects I completed.
The saw will perform its job. Have patience. Measure twice, cut once.
Pros: Easy to Use, Accurate, Light Weight
Cons: Limited Features

this is for 45 degree miters
this is for cross-cutting and squaring up edges
This is the first project I completed with the help of this saw

I got this saw for a home remodeling project and didn't want to spend a lot of money. This unit did it's job well for what I asked it to do. I used it to make the cuts installing 2000 sq ft of laminate floor, cut trim and millwork, and build a fence and a couple of gates so far. The miter gauge has some slack in it so I made my own jigs and a crosscut sled. The fence is flimsy and not very solid but it works OK when you measure and set both ends before you cut. The factory settings for blade alignment were OK on mine, the instructions give clear directions on blade alignment. Some other reviews are trying to compare this to more expensive, high end, professional saws. This isn't one of those. It is a basic, bargain priced, home handyman saw. It works well for that.
I gotta say, the on/off switch really kicked my butt. It literally took me 15 minutes to realize the yellow plastic key had to be inserted before the on/off switch would work.
I've used it to cut molding, laminate flooring and PVC piping - works great and says "Feed me more, George!"
Pro's: Lightweight - can be easily moved from place to place. Does everything I need it for. Instructions provided a picture of the wrong way to fit one of the safety devices.
Cons: Instructions don't discuss the red key. Instructions should tell you to use lock-tite on the carriage bolt threads (guess what fell apart - LOL). Saw is really loud. It keeps the cats away though :)
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
Bought this table saw so that I could rip some of my own lumber rather than have it custom cut. It really does a fine job and for the price I couldn't resist buying it. The stand is sturdy and the blade is well protected. The anti-kick-back feature is a plus. I built an extension table to support large boards as I feed them through the saw.
This saw is sturdy and good enough to do for me what I need to have done. I purchased it to build beehives so I normally have to rip 1" x 12" x 10' into several different sizes and it does it without problems. I don't know if this saw would be good enough for big construction projects but having it for what you need to do around the house, this saw is perfect. The stand is very sturdy and it is very easy to put together. Once you open it up, you may be able to start cutting in the next few minutes. I am not an expert and this is my first saw of this kind but it does make my life now whole lot easier.
Great tool for the price. One of the cheaper table saws you can find, especially one that comes w/ a stand, and will do all of the necessary jobs for DIYers with great accuracy.
Would prefer if the fence was a little bit more sturdy, and you do have to measure it at the front and back end of the table to make sure it is level with the blade from front to back, but other than that, it's a great tool for the price.
Used it for a complete basement finish, including studs, wood flooring, and more detail work like crown molding and wainscoting. Would definitely recommend as an entry-level table saw.
I table mounted this unit for my wife to use in her side of the shop! It absolutely needs a shop vac to pull the sawdust out or with this kind of installation it comes right up into your face and everywhere else. No big deal as I put one in. Cuts strongly. I bolted mine down. The miter gauge fell off the end of the table and the adjustment knob broke. It has fallen numerous times since out of carelessness. I wish they had a groove cut into the slot to keep the miter gauge in place. Wear your hearing protectors 'cause this is a loud saw when table top mounted, far louder than my 12" radial arm saw. Again, no big deal as it is a hobby shop unit and it works well for small projects very light and ultra portable.
Pros: Easy to Use, Light Weight, portability
Cons: Not Durable, Limited Features, need a groove in the table slot to hold the miter, very loud
I own several Ryobi power tools and equipment and generally like their products. Bought this saw 3-4 years ago. I never used it a lot, but when I do it's mostly to rip 3/4" fir and cedar, some plywood and an occasional 2x. It is what you would expect from an inexpensive table saw. Very loud and somewhat rough sounding, the motor is on some sort of spring mechanism that causes it to bounce a little as it cuts through moderately heavy material like 2x's . Although it is noisy it always seemed to have adequate power. Not impressive, just adequate. I renovate houses and purchased this saw because it was compact and portable enough to haul around and didn't take up too much space in my trailer. It worked fine until today, when the motor started to smoke. I was ripping 3/4" cedar boards at the time. It seems to me that it should have lasted longer, even at this price. Hope your luck is better.
I bought my first saw 12 years ago in Va. and used it to remolder a 1200 sq.ft.home also build mt own privicey fence around the yard. I rippied 2x4,2x6,4x4,4x6 and smaller.The saw cost 99.95 then. It finally died last week while I was ripping landscape timbers. I purchased anothe to finish the wifes project. The saw has had some upgrades from the older model. It now comes own stand, a better blade and rip fence. Great for the home owner. I feel that I got more than my moneys worth and I hope this one lasts 12 years
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
As with anything, there may be some reviews that are sub-par. But it's the luck of the draw and the great thing about Home Depot is the return policy. So far, I've been cutting 3/4" oak hardwood flooring with no problems. It sure beats our old saw that was so much more money and didn't have all the safety features as the new saws. Be sure and get a 40 tooth saw blade if you intend to cut without splintering!! So far it is cutting like a hot knife through butter. You do have to 'true-up' the blade and get a feel of how/where it cuts but for the price you can't beat it!
Will meet most needs for cutting. The fence is not the best, but will get the job done and it will make straight cuts if you measure from both ends of the saw blade. Motor so far is strong. Cuts through all the different sizes of wood that I have cut without any problems. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a good saw for around the home jobs.
I looked at and researched several table saws in the $100 - $200 range and found this one to be about the best for the money.
Several didn't include the stand and was generally about $30 extra... The saw needs a bit of adjusting before using and it's a good idea to make a dry run before actually cutting anything just to get a feel to the device.
After owning and using this saw a number of times for just over two weeks I found it to be better than I had expected. It is highly recommended that you read ALL of the instructions and follw them carefully. Make the necessary adjustments and you should be in good shape.
The box looked like it was brand new but when I started to assemble the saw to the table there was a lot of sawdust on the motor, so obviously someone used it before and returned it. The switch was missing and many other part. The problem is I live in Mexico Baja South 600 miles south from San Diego and there is no way I can return it.
For someone on a budget this is a OK saw. Personally, I wish I would have spent a little extra cash and bought a 10" Craftsman. The saw has plenty of motor, but the fence is something to be desired. If anyone plans on buying this saw always measure from the fence to the blade front to back or you'll waste plenty of wood.
