It’s always great to get a new tool.
I will echo the recommendations to spend time setting up the saw.
An inexpensive caliper is indispensable (IMO), I use mine on every single project and tool setup.
A square that is actually square is also indispensable, unfortunately finding one is a lot harder than it should be.
The time spent getting the blade and the fence parallel to the miter slots and the blade tilt stops set to 90 and 45 degrees is worth every second you spend on it.
Good luck, be careful, have fun.
