"I bought this saw to trim doors, cut kitchen kick plates and laminate flooring. Saw works well. The saw blade gives a fine cut. The saw has all the power that I need for this type of work.
Two minor complaints. It would have been better if the saw were supplied with two batteries and the depth of cut (on my example) just fails to go through a standard internal door.
Having had a moan I must say that the saw is a delight to use and I tend to use it in preference to my corded Makita circular saw even in the workshop. It is great for cutting sheet material even 18mm. It is so convenient not to have a cable to worry about.
I have marked reliability as average as I have not had the beast long enough to assess it."
