I have one. They aren’t perfect. I haven’t used it in a long time because I don’t do a lot of mitering, but as I recall if you don’t have enough “meat” on the cutoff side, the blade can push the work back a little. It can cut a very clean miter, cleaner than sawn, but it doesn’t do the same trick you can do with a miter saw of positioning the work abutting the blade plate, starting the saw and cutting off the thickness of carbide on the side of the saw blade.

Maybe somebody knows how to make the miter trimmer do a comparable trim but I don’t know it.
