The Mother of all Saws Oct. 31 2005
By Mark N. Beaulieu - Published on Amazon.com
This is a physically large and heavy saw. I bought it and the Hitachi miter stand to take to jobs sits to do cabnet grade trim work and I'm afraid I over bought. (I'm gonna end up with a hernia or a broken back). The lazer, while accurate, needs to be adjusted with every change of saw position. Plus, my lazer runs out of adjustment to the left side of the blade but has plenty to the right (there may be another adjustment but nothing in the manual). My biggest disapointment is the digital display. It only reads to .5 degree, but you can move the table between the marks and the saw stays at .5 (I can eye ball a half degree as this saw has a excellent miter scale (And a fair bevel scale). I think this feature (and the reason I bought the saw) to be over rated. I've also noticed a somewhat gritty slide action (may need a cleaning)..That being said I have found this saw to be accurate and powerfull. The soft start is a nice feature, but it takes some getting used to as you have to wait for the saw to get up to speed before contacting to wood.

problems here Dec 1 2005
By Dusty - Published on Amazon.com
Things I like- very heavy for stationary use only. 12" blade allows using only one setting for crown molding cuts.Wonderfull!!! Don't waste your money on a 10" unless you must have a portable unit. Excellent machining and repeatabilty. Super smooth and well balanced. Handle located in vertical position.Super easy to set up angles.Superb feel.

The following is just my opinion. You may not agree with me.

Things I didn't like. The saw arrived with a broken laser. The factory gave me the option of taking it to a service center 2 hours away with a 6 week wait or they would send me the part if I would give my warranty.I'm in a hurry so I gave up the warranty. GRRR. This ain't WalMart fellows. Grrr again. Got the laser. It's a worthless one beam unit.You need two beams to locate the blade position guys. Duh. More hype. The digital readout is only .5 degrees. If you can't eyeball .5 degrees your not much of a wood worker.

The design and color scheme looks like a Ninja Turtle on drugs. Ugly, really ugly. Check the mental health of your designer Hitachi. He may have a problem. Now the real biggie- All SCMS have a serious problem with dust control. This saw is the worst I have ever used. The rear post is 5" wide with a sweeping U turn that shoots you directly between the eyes with high velocity sawdust. It even stings. I had to stop and clean my glasses off after 2-3 cuts.I came up with a very radical fix that solved the problem. You may have to live with it.Finally I have read posts that complained of a galling problem between aluminum sliding pieces. Scary since I lost my warranty. End of story. Would I buy again? I found nothing better available so I live with it.

I have used, abused and used them all again Oct. 28 2005
By bob woodworker - Published on Amazon.com
There is nothing I can not do with this saw. From the time I took it out of the box I was impressed. It does save space over the old bulky Dewalt I had and the cut is as clean as silk. I can not get over the capacity, digital readout ease of user and the accuracy of the laser. We purcahse this and the Makita at the same time. The Makita saw does not come close in terms of accuracy. The radical look of this saw sets it apart in the shop. I would not normally go for this look but I can not get over how good it looks and perfroms in my shop. I have 10 guys per working in the shop using the saw from 7am - 7PM. You could not purchase a better unit. I got the mail in rebate on the finish nailer as well and this was $189 value. I WISH AMAZON would have played this up a little better on thier site. I almost missed it. The value of the saw with the mail in rebate was icing on the cake.

The best slide I have every used!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Space Saver? Oct. 24 2005
By Wood Chuck - Published on Amazon.com
One of the big selling points for me on this one was the idea of saving space with the new slider design. Don't be fooled; it turns out the back of the saw is so big that it takes up about the same room as the old style sliders. You will need at least 19" from the back of the fence to the wall! On the other hand, I think the angle D.R.O. and laser features are great to have. Once you start to use the digital angle read out, you will never want to go back. Hitachi has a reputation for making well built and long lasting saws. (I hope this radical new design lives up to their name.) Also... Did I mention how ugly Hitachi's new tool designs are. God I hope they fire their new industrial designer so he/she can go back to work in the tennis shoe business.

Hitachi was the best, but.... July 31 2006
By Mr. Matt Huss - Published on Amazon.com
I own 4 hitachi slide mitre boxes 2 10's and 2 8 1/2's. I build furniture and install moulding. We bought this saw for use in our shop but promptly returned it. The laser is ok but not neeeded. The digital display only works to the nearest 1/2 degree and that does not help much for fine tuning cuts. The side to side slop in this saw is real bad, most slides have some but i could not get this saw to cut 1 single straight cut. It moves as far as 3/16 in either direction???? The blade wobbles and it is one heavy heavy saw. This is not acceptable for the percision work I do. The head dosent have enough spring to return to the up position itself. Hitachi spent too much time making this saw look pretty and forgot about accuracy. I will buy another hitachi 10in. I do not reccomend this saw to anyone unless you have a pretty shop where the tools dont get used. Hitachi could not give me this saw I would have to use it as a paper weight.
