I have an earlier version of this Hitachi saw. It’s direct drive. Works fine for most casual needs, and if you need a portable saw, it will serve you well. Cutting 2 by stock in spruce or yellow pine, or plywood, it will work as designed. Only issue I have with portable saws is they tend to tip over if you are handling large stock, so an extra pair of hands is mandatory is ripping sheets of plywood, for example.

It is NOT a cabinet saw. So don’t expect that level of performance. Otherwise, it’s a good saw. It’s on sale for $269 here.
The grade A recon tools from big sky tools are indistinguishable from new. I’ve bought plenty of them.
