A few complaints
Because of the laser, the nose was shortened to save weight, so you've got to lean over the saw to see the old-school guide. Only bevels to 45 degees, I like my saws with a 50 or even 55 bevel available. Not a bad saw, but I long for the porter cable that was made a decade ago. Seems sturdier.

The Best Circular Saw I Have Owned
At first I thought the non-adjustability of the laser sighting system would be an issue, but the more I use it, the more accustom to it I become. The laser indicates the exact center of the kerf, so you have to lay it to one side of your cut line (or adjust the line position about 1/16" ).
Love this saw.
I have already recommended it to many . . .

Even the refurb is good.
Bought this to repair my deck. Wish I had purchase it earlier. It is so nice moving up to something with a little more power. It just zips through wood. Much better than my bargain basement 6 amp units or my 19V cordless.
