I just bought a Dewalt 12in sliding miter saw about 3 months ago and love it. My personal preference is naturally Makita, but you can get the Dewalt on eBay for $350, vs. approximately $550 for the Makita. For me, the $200 difference was worth it for the saw. I have already used it to the max depth of cut the saw can take on hardwood, and the motor doesn’t bog down like my prior Harbor Freight did. In my opinion, if $$$ isn’t a problem, go with the Makita. However, for a little less I would say the Dewalt is well worth the price! Just my two cents worth…
