Energer ENB455CSW 185mm Circular Saw 220-240V
Not the best
This is the first circular saw that I've purchased so it might just be my technique but, if you want a square cut, avoid this and buy something better.
Material that I was cutting was 38mm thick worktop and kitchen unit side panels.
Depth of cut is fine, speed of cutting is fine, but I have been completely and utterly unable to get this thing to cut square, no matter how much time I spend adjusting it.
It will be going back.

Very good for the price
I was wary of this because it's so cheap to buy and handled it very carefully but now I've used it I'm impressed. The slide plate and guide are probably the parts most vulnerable to getting bent and certainly don't seem as robust as on the more expensive saws. Having said that, if you nurture the saw rather than fight it during cutting it does the job well.

This buzz saw is excellent. I have used several different make saws before ( some brand names and some not ) but for a little over thirty quid , you can't go wrong with this one. Used for fitting chipboard loft flooring. I thought the coarse blade that comes with it would cause chips galore and I was preparing for more expense by buying a finer toothed blade but, it left no damage at all. Great saw. Would recommend.

I don't usually buy cheap gear but as I only use this type of saw now and again it made no sense to spend loads of money. I have been very pleased with its performance and do not regret it purchase. Only time will tell on its reliability but I am confident it will stand the test of time.
