Same price at Home Depot with better availability. Cannot speak to the quality of this tool though.

What a confusing tool. OP it's not a "table saw" at all, it's product page calls it a "tabletop saw". Very large difference and it's more akin to a scroll saw. The blade isn't part of a large circle of metal instead they're thin jigsaw style blades bound to flex.

I'd saw it's like a mounted upside down jigsaw with a fence which is pretty cool if you're on a tight budget and don't need precision work.

I own one of these. I would not recommend it. it's just too loud for what it does. I wasn't impressed with any of its features and I couldn't get it to rip a decent line. And really the amount of noise it creates in the process is just absurd.

I found one of the original ones for free. It's not super useful, basically an upside down jigsaw with a fence. However, I have used it to rip some short lengths of 1/2 ply and found it did a decent job of giving a clean cut, straight line. But it was slow and loud. I wear ear protection always with it. I've also used it to rip a 1x board once or twice, it got it done.

I useD this for a floor project, really pain in the ass. Yes, it can not rip a decent straight line. This is intended for simple cut , not for home project
