I had some initial reservations about buying this kind of a tool in a reconditioned state. But it really has turned out to be a good value. Why? Because I am a bit of a beginner, and I think the average homeowner (non-trades professional) could not justify the economics of buying this much saw in new condition ($599, or more). [I bought the 10 inch model because I already owned a 10 inch table saw with a small assortment of blades in that size. I am confident that the 12 inch model is as good, or better IF you actually have a need to cut wider stock or bevel-cut thicker stock. I did not have that need].
It arrived with a couple of damaged plastic parts, which CPO (working together with Bosch) have corrected at no charge to me. Both parts were provided brand-new from Bosch and were an easy user-fix. Neither issue prevented me from putting the saw to work on that first weekend. The body of the saw had very little evidence of prior use - hardly a nick or scratch worth mentioning. I recommend to novices that they read the owner's manual before attempting any compound bevel cuts, as this function requires a bit of adjustment that would not seem intuitive, but it does work. And the saw is well-equipped to handle it.
Before buying, I read reviews of other saws that criticized the absence (or poor quality) of a blade. Mine came with a very nice 60 tooth BOSCH blade. Perhaps not equal to the finest available in the after-market, but darned good, and it cuts as smooth as glass.
Other reviewers have criticized this saw for its weight. It is somewhere between 80-90 pounds. I would not consider this to be a jobsite-portable saw. But I don't need it to be. A lot of that extra weight resides in the glide arm mechanism. Its operation is smooth and accurate, and I value that more than portability.
Lastly, there is the issue of dust management/collection. I have not tried hooking it up to a shop vac [yet]. But the saw IS provided with a plastic elbow intended to facilitate connection to a vacuum system. I have been using mine either in the garage, or on the back patio, so this has not been a problem for me. To tell you the truth, if it didn't create a bit of saw dust, I might be a little disappointed.
Bottom Line: Good saw at a good price. I puts professional-grade quality in the hands of a non-professional. It just sacrifices a little on the portability front.
