I have used the Bosch quite a bit, it's a great little saw.
I have seen but never used the DeWalt and the Porter Cable

If that's any help :)

Hi Patriot,

I have found a useful review for you to consider on the Dewalt.

I see your price point & would like you to consider a slightly more expensive offer. $50 + tax higher.

LOL you beat me to it Glen... again. ")

The rigid table is another great choice for $549 in my neck of the woods.

You should really have a look at this saw Patriot. I have used this saw when helping one of my neighbors set it up and get it dialed in. It was really accurate right out of the box. A great choice with it's large table surface and much greater cutting capacity.

The Bosch saw is also a good choice compared to the DeWalt saw. If I had to make a choice between the three saws, I would probably go with the Ridged but that is just my choice. Keep an eye open for used saws for sale in your area as well, There are some great buys to be had if everything checks out.

Let us know what you decide upon. I have a few more suggestions for you once you choose your saw.
