Usually $219 and right now on sale for $139. It's now cheaper then the 7 1/4 sliding miter saw which retails for $189. Cheapest I've seen.

Regarding Dust Collection-
Dust collection on this saw is not great (it's actually really tough on most Miter Saws). Compounding things, the dust extraction port is a really oddball size that requires a lot of gerry-rigging to get to work with a shop vac. I had to use an adaptor and a lot of duct tape to make it work. Once properly fitted, I can capture a lot of dust, but certainly not all of it.

If you want to see some empirical tests on dust collection between saws, check out this video-

Most these saws are double/triple the cost of the Ryobi, so understand there's a steep cost climb if you're looking for a really clean shop.

I bought this saw 2 months ago and am planning to return it in the next few days. The sliding mechanism is not coplanar with the fence. So their is an 1/8" difference on length on each end of a 10" wide piece of wood. If you are getting this for rough framing it shouldn't be a problem, but I made a fireplace with this and there are alot of places where it is not perfect.
I spent 30 min getting everything square out of the box too, Ryobi confirmed you cannot adjust the sliding mechanism FYI.

How does your logic make sense? You're talking about global warming and somehow using a power outlet is less green than using a battery in your head? Do you understand how you charge a battery? No one was complaining about it being less green, their arguments were related to portability. Please delete your comment
If you have to use electricity from the wall to charge a battery you might as well use the same electricity to just power the device directly if you have the option. Electricity production and battery production require different resources and you combine the resource consumption with the use of a battery-powered device. I'm not defending one way or the other the but the logic is pretty obvious. Delete your comment?

Not in the market for a miter saw, but just wanted to point out that you can get the harbor freight 12" dual bevel for ~160 which is well worth the extra 20 unless space is a concern.

I'm no die hard harbor freight fanatic but I've had mine for about 5 years and as a hobbyist woodworker and carpenter it's served me well and still going strong. Took a little bit of finesse tweaking it out of the box but it's still going strong today. That and I'm really not a big fan of ryobi but to each their own.
any1 wanna +1 this? I too am a hobbyist, maybe i would use the miter once a month on a project. So if I can get by on HF stuff, I may just do that if it has more featues.

Beginner here. Can you explain what you mean?

I keep thinking this is a problem with the fence, but you squared up so I guess you're saying the sliding mechanism is off angle?

Is this something you can use in your basement or would it throw saw dust even though it has a catch bag?
The bag doesn't do a great job of catching sawdust.... but I've found the same to be true about most mitre saws.

The cuts are good and the laser is spot on. We've used it to replace deck boards and put up molding. Very happy with the results.

I had bought one of these with a 10% off coupon. I was on the fence about a sliding miter. Got it unboxed and on my Ryobi miter stand. The 3" nearest to full in was quite sticky. I did a couple of test cuts and noticed some issues that last little bit. Returned it for the non-slider.

Great deal, haven't seen it at that price for a long time. Have one and it is great. Just purchased the stand for it, so I am looking forward to it.

The sliding mechanism introduces wobble into the cut, therefore you can't expect the cut to stay on angle (or bevel) for the length of the cut while sliding. To counter this, you can disable the sliding mechanism by turning a knob, but will then be limited to cuts that are the length of the radius of the blade (<5" on 90 degrees, even less on miter cuts). For sliding cuts, the wobble is fine for rough carpentry like framing, but not good for things like trim carpentry and fine woodworking. You are not going to notice any of this when using it with construction grade pine from Home Depot/Lowes because none of those boards are milled straight to begin with. For molding purposes, a little bit of caulk and paint will make any gaps disappear.

All sliding-miter saws are going to have this same issue, though some of the more expensive ones will have less wobble. For long, accurate miter cuts (or beveled), the best tool will be a table saw with a miter gauge.

Cheers. Thanks for the in-depth elaboration.

I don't have room for a table saw, so this will probably have to do. Upgrading from a 10 year old hitachi.
