WEN miter saw any good?

70751 dual bevel sliding 10" saw

These are on a good sale at woot but I can't find any reviews on them. Junk?

I would use it as a homeowner. Wife wants crown on the kitchen cabinets and in a morning room. Some trim work here and there, chair rail, etc. I don't need the best but I don't want to be frustrated by a piece of junk if that's all it is.

most cheap slide compound saws have too much ''play'' to be very accurate,your better off with a 12'' non slider from a major manufacturer,you will have better results

I've seen them side by side with the better brands at the box stores and they just look downright cheap. Saws like that are good for one or two major projects and then they are kaput. If you're looking for a cheaper model, consider a Skilsaw.

P.S. IF you just need a saw for a project or two around the house, it is far better to rent one from your local tool rental store.

Once bought a cheap craftsman miter saw thinking it was good enough. You could spend an hour making sure everything was lined up. Make 3 cuts with it and it was out of line again. Go with a better saw you won't regret it later.
