Good saw
The Saw was easy to setup and went right into the work table I had for the old Skilsaw I had which was a great surprise. I have used it for a few weeks and the saw is powerful and does everything I ask it to do. I did change out the blade as I had a better on on the old saw and a extra one hanging in on the rack which is one reason I got the 12 inch saw.

Precision and Power
I have been in the home remodel business for the past 20 yrs and nothing is more synonymous with precision and power than Dewalt. They simply are the best at what they do, and that is providing its consumers primeum products for a great price! They absolutely broke the mold with their Miter Saws and portable/collapasable stands. This saw delivers anything u could need in a miter saw. I have never been let down or disappointed in this product. So if you’re in the market for a mitre saw you can’t go wrong here!

Purchased two years ago and could not be more satisfied. I build tables of all sizes and with a good blade it cuts accurately every time.

Best saw iv owned
My wife and 3 kids bought this for me for fathers day that passed. Works beautifully and is alot better then using a corded circular saw for all the cuts I need to do. Got it for a good price and home depot price matched and gave an extra 10% off witch helped out alot. Couldn't be more happy with the saw iv had no issues with it.

Very well built
I have had this saw for almost a year. And has held up well still and solid as the day I bought it. Matched with the Dewalt miter saw stand very solid combo. Went with the DWS779 instead of the 780 because I wasn't worried about the XPS light but for some that is worth the money.

I bought this saw a little while back and it is one of the best saws i have ever used. I'm a trim carpender and i've used many saws including other dewalt miter saws and this one is by far my favorite. Right out of the box it was extremely accurate, the fence is very sturdy and perfect for larger cuts and crown. I would highly recomend this saw to anyone looking for a durable/ acurate saw

12" miter saw
This saw is a very good saw. Meet my needs in every way except for the thin flaps on the dust collection. When I hook up my dust collector to it, the suction is so strong that it sucks the flaps together.

DeWalt DWS779 is igreat for small and large projects
Great tool for the price. Appears to be identical to the DWS780 minus the LED guide. Very good design. A bit heavy but has a handy carrying handle and folds nicely for travel or for vehicle storage.
