This saw does it all !
5 Star Review   By Huntster on Home Depot - Apr 10, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This saw is a work of art. For precision cuts and finish carpentry... Motor is strong, motion is smooth, chops, slides, tilts both left and right (even has a stop for crown molding), and rotates with many preset stops. Compound cuts are no problem.

5 Star Review   By MikeG57 on Home Depot - Jan 29, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Let me get the only partial negative out of the way first - Bosch's price for this saw is steep, but the Home Depot price was the best I could find. This saw so far has performed very well right out of the box, and because I don't use it daily, I am tuning it as I go, but it is very well-equipped for precise cutting. I will probably use a Forrest 90T blade on it for some tasks, but the Bosch blade appears to be clean enough for most work. I especially like the ability to put the saw right against the wall which works out great in my shop because of the design of the saw. This will undoubtedly be the last miter saw I will buy, and is a high-quality, well thought out piece of equipment. Most of the time, I will use a shop vacuum system with it, so may not notice dust removal concerns noted in other reviews.

5 Star Review   By Trimmer on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

had to adjust saw bevel as it was off by 3 tenths of a degree per my wixie digital gauge most trim work would not have noticed however cabinet work needed dead on adjustment was easier than the older bosch it replaced. so smooth a real dream to use

Excellent product.
5 Star Review   By Teleman on Home Depot - Jan 8, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I receive the saw in good condition. Some minor adjustments were needed to make the saw as percise as possible. Once I got it adjusted I have been extremely satisfied. It does seem to be the priceier saw on the market.

Best miter saw on the market
4 Star Review   By John on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The best feature of this product is that you can set the miter saw flush against the wall. No space is needed behind the saw because there are no slide bars behind it as is the issue with almost all other miter saws. If you have limited space in your shop...this is the saw you want! Very smooth and accurate cuts right out of the box! The Home Depot price was the best I could find out there on the internet.

This saw has every thing I need.
5 Star Review   By Gramps on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I shopped around and looked at other saws before I bought my Bosch. It has all the features I wanted and the fact it dosen't have bars sticking out the back means I can use it without moving it away from the wall seeing I don't have alot of room in my shop.

Like the feel and the power.
4 Star Review   By Greg66 on Home Depot - Jul 24, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Hold on to the saw when you turn it on. There is plenty of power. The only downside is there is no laser guide with the saw. Had to buy it extra. Would like a stop in the table for repetitive cuts. Table and fence slide easily as well. Would have also liked more instruction on how to set the miter dents. Saw came with 90 degrees spot on but the 45 dent was off a little. I feel I have it set now have not had a chance to check with a frame yet.

good
5 Star Review   By allbee on Home Depot - Jul 11, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The box the saw was shipped in was damaged on all sides and retaped to keep it closed. The good news is that the saw was not damaged and setup was easy. Thanks to whoever designed the good packaging around the saw and protection of the shipping box. Saw works good. I would like a lazer if it was avalable?

Great saw overall, but still a little room for improvement
5 Star Review   By PaulWoodworker on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Lets start by saying that I am fussy and want my tools to work precisely. This saw meets my expectations in all areas but one or two. I'll start with those. 1) The saw blade arbor has a small amount of play. On inspection I found that the blade end of the arbor is supported by a ball bearing that is well fitted. The other end of the arbor fits into a needle bearing cup, and there is a little clearance there. Due to this clearance, the outer edge of the blade can be moved perhaps .010" without flexing the blade. A tighter fit here would be nice. 2) I believe the arbor mounting face that blade mounts to has a slight runout. I have not indicated it in, but with a Forest blade on the tool, there is some runout that I don't think is from the blade. As for the rest, easy to use, solidly built, very smooth operation (tunable for more drag if desired). The bevel settings are easy to use and the balance of the machine is very workable. Compared to the best of the sliding shaft machines, this one appears to me to be not quite as stiff when you try to deflect the blade sideways - but the action is oh so smooth. It would be nice if there were a vernier to set odd angles on the miter cuts. The bevel angle reading is much improved over earlier models (sliders).

Fantastic saw
5 Star Review   By SacMax on Home Depot - Jul 4, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This saw is fantastic! Took it out of the box and checked its calibration... It was dead on. You're buying a high quality tool with this setup. Everything is well thought out and designed, from the packaging to the articulating arms to the up front controls. The finest details, such as the beveled the bottom of the belt casing so the it has the exact right clearance to cut a 2x8 on a 45 degree bevel and 45 degree miter. The only thing I could complain even the tiniest amount is the dust collection system isn't as effective as it could be... But still on par with every other miter saw I've ever owned. Otherwise this saw exceeded my demanding expectations in every respect. Indeed I hope this is the last miter saw I will ever have to buy. Also, I mounted mine on a porter cable miter saw stand with the compression shock. Works beautifully, and the compression shock is a nice addition because this saw isn't light. Most of the saw is either machined or cast aluminum.

Tough to Beat
5 Star Review   By KevE on Home Depot - Jun 15, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I'd been drooling over this saw since I read the first reviews of it some time back, and it's everything they say it is: powerful, smooth and accurate...right out of the box. Like most Bosch products, it's engineered and built to be used. Controls are well thought out and every piece serves a purpose. It's hefty, so I highly recommend the gravity rise stand unless you're using it strictly as a shop tool. Recommended with no reservations, and even the prices on Amazon were only about $7 less. Good job HD.

Love this saw...
4 Star Review   By Furn3113 on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Runs great! Smooth cuts. Required total re-setup for accurate cutting after shipping. Table and fences were hard to level and square.

Hoping to gain more confidence in the saw.
3 Star Review   By Pete on Home Depot - Apr 1, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

During the short time I have used the saw, it has yet to live up to all the hype. The stock blade is junk. Throw it away. I had to shim the right fence to bring it into allignment with the left fence. Several adjustments were required right out of the box to square up the saw. The bevel lock handle has a sloppy fit. The power is adequate and the saw has some nice features but it does not seem as robust as it looks. Sawdust pickup leaves a lot to be desired. It is a heavy machine which limits portability. With a good quality blade the saw will make clean accurate cuts. Also it seems to have good repeatability. I hope to gain more confidence in the saw with additional use.

Bosch's new Gliding Mitre Saw - WOW!
5 Star Review   By ardisbi on Home Depot - Feb 21, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This is an absolutely incredible mitre saw. The articulating arm is extremely easy to use. The smoothness of operation of the articulating if fanatastic! The maximum 14" width cut fits nicely into the size of wood that I often have to work with. Similaryly, the ^ 1/2" height cut exceeds all my expectations. The accuracy of the presets ensures confidence in the quality of the cuts.
