I also have this saw. I love it. It came setup great out of the box, the miter slot to blade was out .002 over the entire length. The blade that came with it was ok, but a woodworker 2 solved that. The riving knife is actually a tad under .1, so a thin kerf blade can be used. After about 1 week of using it, it started to bog when cutting 2 inch stock, I thought what the heck. I then re-checked the belt tension, and noticed that it must have worn in, and needed re-adjusting. A quick fix and have not had that issue again. I was running on 110, but since getting a 60 amp sub panel in the shop have re-converted it back to 220. No real difference that I can tell, but saves amps for the dust collector and other tools. I also put a peachtree router table wing in for my incra lift and have loved that. Did require some re-drilling, but easy enough. Dust collection is ok, could use some internal baffles for better direction towards the port. I clean it out once a month or so, and it only collects in the corners. Fence is pretty good, does need re-adjusting every once in a while. locks great and does not move once locked down. Tilt stops were dead on, 90 and 45 when I used my digital angle gauge. I do have a slight blade alignment issue at full blade height, but only the last 1/16 or so of the travel, have not had to use it, so I dont raise the blade that high. For the price, the saw is great. No regrets.
