Good Value Saw
Overall this is a good saw for the money. Works well with good power and cuts very actuate. Areas that could be improved would be the sliding square's adjustment locks. The blade that comes with it is not worth even using. Just buy a good one initially. Other than those things it is a good saw and does a nice job.

Good for the price
Nice size for cutting larger tile. Accuracy of the cut in relation to the fence and the stop was poor and the motor itself was mounted at a slight angle makeing a less than perfect cut on one of the two edges. Good price for a large saw but don't count on this one for precision.

It's the "goto" saw
Rarely am I satisfied with tool purchases. I guess I am pretty hard to please. This saw satisfied me 100%. I imagine if it were used commercially every day, day in and day out, it would probably take a pretty good beating. But, for the money and if you have large pieces to cut, or lots of smaller pieces, this is the saw you need. I used it right out of the box to make four 22" long cuts across two granite counter tops. It cut them like butter. Two of the cuts were trimming off a piece 1/2" wide, 1" thick, by 22" long. The cuts were so smooth they didn't break. I will say that when I first turned it on, the pump motor wasn't running. I wiggled it, no luck. I took it out and while holding it in my hand, tapped it with my knuckle and it started working. I re-installed it back in place and it quit again. So, I tapped it with the knuckle again, it started back up and has been working fine since. Even if I have to replace the pump, it is still a well designed easy to use tool.

QEP Bridge Saw
I purchased this saw to remodel my kitchen. I laid 94 square feet of granite tile on the counter and two islands, and had no problem with the saw. A bridge saw is much easier to use than a saw with a sliding table, and I can cut 24 inch square tile without a problem. The laser mounted on the saw works very well to align the tile to cut right on the line you have marked. I was surprised when the factory supplied blade cut all of the granite for the counters as well as 64 square feet of marble back splash as is still as sharp as when I bought the saw. The legs of the saw fold up so that I can store it on a shelf in my garage. I would definitely recommend this saw to anyone who has any significant amount of tile to lay. It was much cheaper than renting a saw over multiple days.

good for the money
pretty good cutting saw ,lacks some of the frills of a higher priced saws,8" blades are hard to find,the scale and fence leave some to be desired...a lot of bang for the buck tho ...with 9 more family tile jobs ahead (lucky me) this saw was a wise investement and will serve its purpose quite well

Worth the money
Thoroughly enjoy using this saw instead of the 7" table top tile saw. Water pump works well and the saw is easy to cleanup. Saw cuts great and is easy to control, even with little tiles and trim cuts. I wish I had it when I tiled my kitchen floor, it would have made the job much quicker.
Only con is the weight, over 100 pounds. The only improvement I would make is to the leg system, make it similar to the Ryobi portable table saw.
