Is the double bevel really that useful for a hobbyist? I've been looking at getting one of these and like the sliding feature and double bevel but are those really necessary?

nope. Not useful on a shit load of projects, just a few complex things. I'd also say the 12" isn't super required either (over the 10" models).

As someone who does some bigger woodworking projects I still don't think dual bevel is important. I do wish I had a sliding saw though that could do wider stock than my 10" Makita.

Double bevel is convenient, for example when you to cut the right end but there isn't room on the left to fit the lumber, but there is room on the right, so you flip the lumber and bevel and cut away. With single bevel, you would have to move the saw.

Sliding is for cutting wider board and large molding. It's also faster to slide through flooring and thicker stock than pressing down.

12" sliding double bevel is huge and heavy. Most people can work with 10" sliding double bevel. And with 10" you can get cheaper blade and share with table saw.

I would not get a single bevel 10" as it's too limiting.

My single bevel does all I need from it. It has never been a limitation. At all.

12" blades are expensive. 10" is was more practical.

But what about bigger cuts? Some people say sliding miter saw. That's fine if you don't mind sacrificing some precision with more moving parts. I prefer to use my table saw for bigger cuts. I prefer the precision.

Might be a good deal on this saw but HD had the 12" sliding double bevel on clearance for $200. I picked one up myself and my local HD still has 3 in stock at this price. The 12" may be overkill for most jobs but for the same price I'll take the bigger saw with more features.

Good brand name tool with a good reputation.

The best part about every Dewalt saw I have ever bought is that they are accurate right out of the box typically. I check my saws a few times a year and my Dewalt stuff rarely needs to be dialed in. Obviously you want to check it when you bring it home but if it was out of square I would be worried about how it was treated in transport.

12" is pretty over kill for most people though. You have to decide wether the increase in blade cost is worth it. I have a 10" and have never maxed out it's capacity.

I would rather have a 10" slider than a 12" fixed. However, I do understand how people will have different applications for their tools.

Just curious as to how often people are replacing their blades? I see alot of comments on that, my last miter saw I just replaced had the same blade for 4 years. I'm just a DIY weekend warrior so I guess I wasn't using it enough to warrant replacement.

The stock 32t blade that comes on it if you buy the 2 pack from HD is $6 more per blade from a 10" to a 12".

Depends on the cut, wood type, and blade.If you are cutting soft wood, your blade will last a while. Hardwoods like Mahogany, not so much. Some people opt for a higher tooth count like 60 to 80 for finer cuts which takes the blade life down due to heat.

If you want to cut 5.25" baseboard standing up against the fence get the 12". You can do it on the 10" but you have to pull the blade guard up which isn't super safe and you can only cut on one side since the motor gets in the way. It is the only thing I wish I had a 12" for instead of a 10". Large crown would be the other reason. The sliders a nice but for most people I think they would be better suited by a miter saw and circular saw for larger pieces. You aren't typically cutting miters in large pieces, so it is pretty easy to do straight cuts with a circular saw and a straight edge.

Just wanted to add that laminate flooring kills blades pretty quickly too (slider last longer though) but for that guillotine type cutter with fixed blade is much better since there's no dust so flooring can be cut on the spot you just need table/jig saw for first and last rows mainly and you can resharpen blade over and over.
