Just starting my DIYer tool collection. Is this a decent option for corded, or should I just stay with the milwaukee brand and go cordless for ease? Price is a factor.

Great price. No electric brake, though, so I'm out. Call me a wimp but I've known enough people to injure themselves on cutting tools that I'd rather pay a little more and potentially go with a less well regarded brand to get the latest safety features if it may save me an expensive urgent care/er trip.

Not sure what you're trimming, but this is a nice, basic, saw, especially for the price. The aluminum shoe is advantageous in that it doesn't bend like the metal shoes on the more basic models. You can do many things with a circular saw, even a basic one, and I suspect most DIYs will never use 1/100th the capabilities of a basic circular saw, and have no real need for a worm drive Skilsaw or a "nicer" Dewalt or Makita. Saws eat batteries, so unless you don't have access to an outlet, or are going to be up on the roof or somewhere an extension cord would be inconvenient, you're almost always better off with a corded one. Lastly, if you're trimming off a small piece of wood, you may want to look into an oscillating tool. For those who've never used a circular saw, please watch youtube vids on the basic uses of them, because they are powerful and can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly.

This. I would look for aluminum straight edge that you can clamp to the door. They are usually in two pieces. Will ensure a good looking, straight cut.

The old model of this saw was okay. I prefer my DeWalt over other brands. Lighter and just feels "right" when I'm using it.

I was just looking for a circular saw (and worm drive) and from the feedback across the woodworking community was to skip the aluminum shoe model and get the magnesium shoe.

Skilsaw SPT67WM-22
Looks like they run about $100 @ Home Depot and comes with a nice Diablo blade.

Corded tools have more power than lower-end cordless tools, and in many cases, higher-end cordless tools. Corded tools are also much cheaper than cordless tools.

The cons of corded tools are:
(1) You can't use them anywhere there isn't a working outlet within extension-cord distance.
(2) You can't just pick up the tool and use it; you have to go through the hassle of finding an outlet.

The pros are:
(1) They're at least as powerful as the higher-end cordless tools.
(2) They're way cheaper.
(3) You don't have to worry about keeping the batteries charged, which is especially valuable on high-power tools (like saws) where the battery will be used up.
(4) You don't have to worry about replacing the batteries due to age/wear.
(5) Staying "on-brand" doesn't matter, because there are no battery-compatibility issues.

I am also a DIYer, and the real question to ask yourself is: where will you likely be using tool X? For drills/drivers, I'd say portability is valuable, because you'll be using that tool all over the place. You don't want driving the occasional screw to be an annoying process.

I mostly use my circular saw out on the deck (where dust isn't a problem), and there is a power outlet there. I have been looking at the new flexvolt worm-drive dewalt circular saw, but it's $350 (as compared to the ~$100 corded dewalt I have now), and decidedly an indulgence.

On the other hand, I recently replaced my wired Makita-vibrating tool with a 20V Dewalt wireless one. I now use the tool way more often because of the convenience. After owning it for like 8 years, I sold the Makita for 80% of the original purchase price (I did buy it on sale), because corded tools don't have batteries that go bad.

So for frugal DIYers, I'd say get corded anywhere that you don't absolutely need cordless. Also, with corded tools, it doesn't matter whether they're all from the same brand like it does with cordless tools. And if you change your mind later, you can resell this thing on craigslist for $40 and keep all your saw blades for the wireless replacement.

Also, if you're shortening a door, and want to minimize painting, you may want to cover your saw's shoe with painter's tape. You'll probably still want to sand and paint the edges of the cut.

How is this compared to Makita 5007mga?

I got it for 100$ by stacking amazon 20$ off and discover 20%. It's getting delivered today.
