Somewhat disappointing. I bought this based on what other owners said about it. It is fairly easy to install. The set up is a little tricky, I ended up going to the DeWalt web site to watch the set up video. I had to dig into the site quite a bit to find the video, but it was worth it.

Not Accurate This product was a big dissapointment. The laser installed fairly easily after reading the instructions, but then was a pain to adjust. After I finally adjusted the laser I found that the line it projected was very thick and that is not adjustable. After a couple of cuts it was back out of alignment. This Item is just not up to par with the rest of the saw which I am very pleased with.
