@flippedcracker: Yes you are correct. I am complaning after having the saw for a year. It has not lived up to my expectations and it is clear to me that you are paying all of that extra money for the break not the saw which after living with it for a year I can say that I am dissipointed by the value of the saw. When I bought the saw I did my research, I was willing to part with the money because I thought that it would be worth it. Break aside I am saying after a year of owenership save your money for the PCS. I don’t hate the saw it still cuts wood and does it fairly well. You can call it buyers remorse if you like and I will agree with you on that. I stand by my opinion of it is not a good value. The extra money for the PCS is a better decision.

As for changing my mind after a year at least I can say that I have done that with a year of using the saw. Almost every review I see is someone reviewing their new toy that they just got. I was thrilled when I first got this saw now after a year of living with it I am less than thrilled.

As for doing homework before buying I went on the best information that I had, reviews on this site and others. If others still love their contractor after a year than good for them, I just wish that I spend the extra money on the PCS and this thread should be a warning to someone who is in a position to buy a contractor SS.

I don’t think I am the only person who bought something, then after living with it was less than thrilled. I can think of a few friends that bought the latest car (two in particularity one bought a mini and the other a VW bug) all of the reviews were great but after living with the car for some time they started to notice the short comings of it and wondered if their money could have been spent better on something else.

Is SawStop like Apple? I am starting to see a cult like following here…....
