Smooth, powerful, well balanced but a bit heavy. I haven't found the weight to be an issue but it is heavy. You'll never catch me holding a board in one hand and a saw in the other making a cut. I really like all of my fingers. if you possess this bad habit then maybe another saw would be better, for those of us who wish to be buried with all ten fingers the weight shouldn't be a problem.
This saw WILL change your mind about cordless saws specifically and the capability of the latest generation of cordless tools in general.

Q & A :
The other knob is a detent knob. That one sets the angle there is a detent at. I believe there are 2 common angles to choose from (22.5° and 45°) plus the maximum angle 56°. It just makes it easy to set those angles.
For example, with the detent knob at 22.5°, releasing the friction lock, the table will just about fall to 22.5°.
That said, I honestly never use the detent. It’s so rare that I need to go back and forth between 0 and one of the detents. My work is almost exclusively rehabs and nothing is square or level so any “45°” is really 43 or 47 or.... further it’s a framing saw and cutting a bevel is pretty rare other than for roof rafters in a valley. Point is most of the time you’ll set it on max and forget about it, but maybe I’ve just been unable to figure out how to use the convenience; it wouldn’t be the first time.
