I have the Porter Cable 12" CMS, and I love it to death. It's my
favorite tool in the shop. That doesn't say much about the 10", other
than it has a nice big brother...
FWIW: I'm a PC extremist. I'll nearly always buy a Porter Cable blrfl
after consideration of the other brands' blrfls. It's not always the
absolute best available, but it always seems to at least be the best
value. Very near top quality on all fronts, without being a price
Another thing that helps with price: there's no "yellow tax" for being
a lemming and buying a DeWalt.
I have used DeWalt, Delta, and Hitachi compound miter saws a lot as
well (for framing work). The Deltas are generally identical to the
Porter Cables, so they're fine. The DeWalt worked, but nothing special.
I would recommend you look at the Hitachis too -- they had a nice feel,
and I used one that was ancient and abused, and it worked like a charm.
Overall though, I like PC.

bought approximately 12 years ago but have never used a PC. I recently
replaced my Makita saw with a Hitachi 10" dual compound sliding miter saw
with a laser guide and am totally happy with it. I compared features and
prices of all the major brands and at the time I was shopping found the best
price on Amazon.com which has been running in additon to good prices, a $25
rebate and free shipping. It is probably the second most used tool in my
shop after my table saw.
