I've been in the market for a miter saw for some time now. I haven't really pulled the trigger yet since there are so many to choose from and the slider versions are so expensive. I happened to be strolling through Home Depot today and out of the corner of my eye I noticed this: It looked fantastic. Smooth, sliding, 12", 15 amps... *but* also $537 (if I remember right... its either that or $597 but Home Depot's site is so ridiculous sometimes trying to find products they carry in-store). Normally, I'd keep on walking due to price, but there was a big sign attached stating that you get the $200 table it was on for free with the purchase. I've always said I'd get a table for the saw whenever I got one, but this was the mack daddy table. click here for bad picture of table Really nice stand though. dual rollers on each side. I guess my only concern is the name. Ridgid is something I don't know anything about. DeWalt, Makita, Delta... those are names I know. Can anyone comment on the Ridgid products... durability, value etc... Is this a good deal or am I just being a "sucker for packaging". Sliding miters is what I really want (not that I couldn't get by without it), and with the nice stand it *appears* to be a decent deal, but I'd like some more experienced input. Thanks in advance.
