Excellent Circular Saw
Having never owned an electrical saw of any kind went for this DeWalt based on expected quality, price and previous reviews.
I have used it to cut 19mm sterling board, 4 x 2 joists and their respective noggins to rebuild from scratch a 28ft x 15ft outbuilding pitch roof. It has made this part of the job really quick & easy.
I was concerned initially that the quality of cut would be rough but the saw produced a very clean cut, avoiding the need to purchase a different blade as well.
It surpassed my expectations for what I needed though I have not used the dust collector attachment, the rip fence or with the bevel feature.
Very pleased with the purchase.

TOP NOTCH SAW
HAVE BOUGHT LOTS OF CIRCULAR SAWS IN THE PAST BUT THIS IS TOP QUALITY AND WELL WORTH THE MONEY. AS YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A WORLD LEADER OF ELECTRIC PROFESSIONAL POWER TOOLS.
HAS A LONG LEAD AND A GOOD BLADE BUT WILL BE UPGRADING THE BLADE AS I DO A LOT OF FINE CUTTING AND DETAILED WORK AS A KITCHEN FITTER. TOP SAW AND WELL WORTH THE MONEY.10/10

Not a bad saw
The quality of the build is fairly good and all the features you need for a skill saw. I rarely use the guide but choose to run up against a straight edge for trimming doors etc.
I had a problem with the saw running off the straight edge and after investigation found that the steel base edge wasn't parallel to the blade.
Using a vernier for measurement bent the back pivot on the base to align with the blade.
It is now working perfectly for my needs.
