I have to ditto Geoguy. I have the 12" Dewalt and really like it, except every once in a while the blade guard takes a hunk out of my thumb (if you grab the handle wrong and pull, the guard swings up like it's supposed to and catches your thumb). Several saws do the same thing though. He's right on about the adjustments and the thing staying put. It's a good saw for the money. The blade that comes with it could use more teeth, but it's adequate. No experience with Rigid, but several of their tools get great reviews in the magazines.
