I had one of these for about five years, and my Dad has been using it for the last 10 years. It is a good enough saw, and my only complaint was the noise level. It really screams. But it has decent power for a universal motor, and reasonable accuracy. While I am not crazy about the universal motor, it has a small footprint with the motor tucked underneath compared to contractor saws in that price range that will typically have the motor hanging out the back, making the saw stick out farther from the wall when not in use.

I will take a contrary view and say that I think it is a decent saw for that money if you have limited space. $100 – $150 is the typical price range that they go for in my area, although my Dad talked me down a bit lower than that. :) If you have the space and another $100 to spend you will be much better off with a real contractor saw which will provide more power, a quieter cut, more after-market add-on options, potentially nicer stock fence, etc.
