My Milwaukee works fine, I just don't like the safety lever, its awkward
when using in unusual positions.
That's dangerous, isn't it? I thought the preferred cordless tool
in unusual positions was a drill, with attachment.

I have the older Makita 6-1/2. works great. I recently saw the newer
model at HD, which has a more substantial base and a LI battery; looks
awfully nice. I've not regretted getting the Makita, except that the
batteries don't last long. I once had 4 18V batteries, but 2 have
already died. They cost $70+
I bought a Hitachi 18V circular saw from Menards about 2 years ago on
clearance for $99. It is quiet and powerful and has proven very useful in
some occasions, like when I was installing Pergo. But now I don't use any
circular saw very much and the Hitachi's battery is usually dead when I want
to use it. So I reach for the corded saw.
