Looks like a good idea except for:

“Jobsite users often cut wet framing lumber or pressure treated material. In those situations, the operator can effectively “ask” the saw’s computer whether a material is too conductive, which could unnecessarily activate the blade brake. Lights on the saw’s oversize kill switch in front will tell the user if the saw should be set to bypass mode using a key, for making wet-material cuts, or if it can be switched back to the safety mode with the brake system engaged.”

It will be great for cutting things like PVC and the like, but for a lot of projects this saw could be asked to do require less that ideal materials, and toggling the brake on and off is just one more thing to remember to do on the jobsite. I still think it’s a good idea though, and thanks for posting that link. I hadn’t heard about it yet.
