Doing professional trim/cabinetry a few years back, used a couple of differen saws. Hitachi 10" slider was nice but think they are made a bit differently now. Used a Bosch 12", while it was accurate was just not my favorite feeling saw. I own a DeWalt 12" double-bevel; at the time was one of the only saws with a belt drive, thus motor was out of the way and increased cut depth. That saw was one of the first 'real tools' I bought, while I wouldn't get rid of it I do find myself wishing I had a slider in my home shop. May go for a nice, old, solid used machine for long cross-cuts in the future.
I still smile every time I cut something with my DeWalt 12" saw though, especially loaded with a brand new blade =D
