There is a difference. The biggest difference is that the rentals have a fixed blade on top, and you push a plate that has the tile pinned against into the blade. The tile doesn't move. Using these table top models the blade is on the bottom, and it pushes the tile up while you cut. You get sloppy cuts. Don't event think about using this with mesh backed stone. It is a disaster. I borrowed a top blade mounted saw and breezed through a backsplash in a weekend. Highly recommend a fixed top mount unit...

Good deal, I've been waiting for this model to go on sale again for awhile. Took so long I just ended up borrowing a tile saw from a friend.

What's the difference between this and a higher end rental? Will I be frustrated using this for my entire kitchen and bath?

Why can't this cut wood? The size of the blade? Couldn't you just get a bigger blade?

I'm a novice and I did 600sqft with a harbor freight cheapo that I put an expensive blade on. It worked great, and this one looks a lot more precise with the guide

They use a diamond blade. Plus ..not sure exactly how this model works...they have a water tray under them that keeps the blade wet... plus these are usually pretty small.

I have an earlier version of this saw which has worked well for several bathrooms, ranging from 18" floor tiles to subway to 1" hex. Though I do prefer a manual tile cutter for places where the edge shows due to the small amount of chipping that I can't seem to avoid using this wet saw. Actually, I tend to use a manual tile cutter more often than not because of ease of use and the lack of mess. The fence on this one looks to be improved from my version which was hard to lock square.

This one has a diamond blade and water reservoir that the bottom of the blade spins through and splashes all about. This style requires you to slide the tile across the table which is not always a smooth process as opposed to the profeesional type where the whole table slides.

Good deal on a nice saw. This one has a more solid cast aluminum top and a more precise fence/miter system than the cheapies. Wish I did enough tiling to justify upgrading mine ...

This is a wet saw made for cutting stone and tile, not wood. Doesn't have the appropriate safety features to handle a wood blade.

No frustration. Perfect for DIY projects. Unless you are a contractor, that works on tiles every day, this is perfect. You can also buy a stand with it if you don't want it laying down on the floor.

Diamond blade included with the saw.

For a stand for mine, I use a couple of those cheap folding metal saw horses with 2x6's mounted to the top. A simple wooden frame that fits snugly around the base of the saw is screwed to the sawhorses and keeps the saw from moving.
