BladeRunner X2 Portable Tabletop Saw is rated out of 5 by 249.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthCoastGuy from Just all around handy. This is no contractor's saw, obviously, but it does a real nice job. I had seen it on display in one of the big box stores and was interested, but as there was no under stock available, and no help to answer my queries I put off buying. I then looked online and read some really discouraging reviews (and some great ones). Now that I've used the saw I'm convinced that some of the negative reviews were from people with some really unrealistically high expectations and/or with really poor reading comprehension! I bought it primarily to do some very light, short cuts on some hobby materials, which it did easily and with smoother, cleaner cuts than I expected. (Less sanding for me!) I even ripped a short piece of 3/4" plywood, which it cut through in a breeze and again, a very smooth cut. All in all, I'm more pleased with my purchase than I expected to be! I can see myself using it on larger projects in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vetterun from Even Deckard Would Approve of This Blade Runner I was a little skeptical of the RK7323 Rockwell Blade Runner X2 Portable Tabletop Saw and had passed on buying it a couple of times. I finally bought one as a gift for my son-in-law, which made a very positive impression, enough so that I bought my own directly from Rockwell via ebay. It was shipped amazingly fast and boxed as it should be, not just in it's original carton. Consequently, it arrived as the new tool it was with no damage. I am one of those unfortunate souls who find it worse to read instructions than ask for directions. Fortunately, assembly was as intuitive and easy, my seeing eye dog could assemble it. I loaded the wood blade and was off to the races. Regarding blade changes, this saw changes blades much easier than a jockey changes mounts. Blade Runner is one of those rare products that exceeds the hype. It is light, easy and safe to operate, sturdy and punches far above its class. It is wonderful for light project work and takes up so little space, I can keep it in my auto trunk or truck box. I tend to develop relationships with my favorite tools, whether they shoot nails or bullets. I have proposed to my Blade Runner and will buy another if this one ever fails. But with a three-year warranty, it'll probably outlast me. Give it a test drive and you will see what I mean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sgtdret98 from Big help in small package! i bought mine a couple of months ago and wish i had purchased it sooner. i have been doing house renovations and this has been a great help in all my projects. i have uses it in doing my wood flooring, some framing, and making my own walk-in closet organization. i like how it is portable to take anywhere i need to use it whether at home or work. i have also used it to make Christmas projects and gifts. for me the only set back was the scroll saw blade wasn't small enough to do tighter turns and thinner cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AgeingNerd from Perfect saw for my needs. I've been waiting for this saw for years. It's much more than an upside down jigsaw. The clamp-down top piece has rollers that stabilize the blade, and the fence and miter gauge allow very precise cuts. I found a $30 table at Harbor Freight (Item # 46725) that is a perfect base--the saw has a fold-down retainer that grips the front edge to prevent the saw from moving backwards. My only gripe is that Rockwell does not sell its excellent wood-cutting blade individually--I have to buy a complete set with other blades I don't need. This is critical because you need a very thick blade to make a cut wide enough to clear the rear support when ripping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary Q from Great portable saw! I bought this and I'm glad that I did, it's great for all of those small jobs that are impractical for other tools.I like the fact that I can easily transport this to where I need it. I also like the features: the quick-change blade and the vacuum attachment. Great saw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penguin from Great addition for every do it yourself fan. Recent purchase so not used extensively as yet. Extremely easy to use with it's lightweight, small foot print and quick blade change features. Word of advice to first time users is blade insertion requires firm pressure to properly seat into the holder.
