I recommend DeWalt table saws above all other portable table saws. If you can get dewalt in your location read on, if not skip to the next paragraph…I have them all & prefer the DeWalt by far. Better fence, better design. Lots of power although the makita table saw is very powerful as well. If you want a good moderately priced saw look up the dewalt 745 or DWE7480 , the difference is the rip capacity. A step up would be Model # DWE7490X. The first one I mention is an excellent DIY table saw, its what I like using on job sites.

I used to use Ryobi table saws 10 years ago, they worked okay, the switches would have to be replaced after a while but they were inexpensive back then. I have a makita that doesnt quit, I purchased it used. If its your first DIY table saw look for something with a decent rip capacity & a good fence, the fence makes the saw, good luck.
