edit: deal is live again at $299 as of 6-12 10:30 pm central time
home depot lists it at $299 but its out of stock:
Normally runs about $375, great saw if you want the XPS shadow cutline and don't want the weight or inaccuracy of a slider. A 12-inch non-slider can do 2x6 45 degrees and 2x8 90 degree cuts which is enough for me, anything beyond that I'd usually use a circular saw with a guide.
I've been waiting for a deal on this for a long time but got the Hitachi/Metabo 10" slider a month ago for $150 instead. After having to bend the fence ( took it off and banged on it ) to make the two sides line up its OK, so I'm not buying this for twice as much but I'm still tempted. The laser on the Metabo is problematic and useless outdoors, I've seen conflicting reviews on the XPS shadow system outdoors.
