This Christmas, my wife bought me a PreformaX 10” sliding miter saw from Menards 164.99$. I was surprised to find out that they are part of the same company that makes Jet and Wilton tools. The box was huge, and everything was well packed. Set-up and adjustments were very easy. The manual was not the greatest though. The laser was “factory set” not sure in what factory that was perhaps by Mister Magoo without his glasses on. It was off by at least a 3/8 of an inch. Adjusting was simple and the saw is dead on now. The saw slides back and forth with no effort at all, yet is very tight with no slop. Miters are right on the mark and no adjustment was necessary. The dust bag I guess would be fine for the job site, not really practical in a home workshop. It does come with an adapter to connect to a dust collector. The hold down clamp works well, as does the stop for repeat cuts. Considering the price and a 2 year warrantee and features and an actually pretty good blade. For a miter saw it is reasonably quiet. I am overall very happy with the saw.
