If you don’t need your miter saw to make furniture-quality cuts, there is a lot to like about the DeWalt. The trigger works easily with either hand and doesn’t have a second safety trigger, which is a slightly annoying issue with other saws. Changing the blade was easy and the blade guard has large view ports. Also, the table-locking handle is the easiest and most intuitive to use, with 11 detents for common miter settings, more than the other saws. But the cutting action was not as smooth as on the Bosch and Makita saws, and there was a little more runout, especially when cutting miters.
