I did the same. I have a contractors saw. I find that the saw starts
quicker and seems to cut easier. That might be a biased opinion.
I have an extension cord to more the saw outside when the weather is
nice. THe cord does not have to be so heavy.

If you are running it on an extension cord or have a long run back to the
service, that is probably true. The voltage drop at "locked rotor" during
startup is considerable and will show up more on a 120v setup. If you have a
short 12ga run to the saw it will be a lot less noticable. My receptacle is 3'
from the service panel.
That is yet another reason to set up a sub-panel for your shop.
