Ryobi 10" sliding miter

I'm in the miter saw market - mainly for DIY projects around the house - a deck, light framing (blocking, adding a closet), and eventually molding/trim projects.

I thought I'd be priced out of the sliding market, but saw this today.


Any experience with this saw out there?

I've been looking at the kobalt one for myself. It's looks alot sturdier for the same price.

The laser quit on mine, but with a Freud Diablo blade I have been quite happy with it. So far used it to replace baseboards throughout my house and build my garden shed.

I usually buy tools based on my estimated usage and the cost of them. Then I look for the best bang for my buck. Of course I like to splurge occasionally but for a saw I am going to use 1 weekend a month for the next 3 years, something like this works quite well.

With my cordless circular saw I was able to use and abuse it for 2 years, then when it burnt out replace it with the same unit and it still cost me less than 1 "GOOD" brand.
