I myself am also satisfied with the MS1290LZ, with the exception of the laser. But then again, I cannot complain as I bought the saw for $400.00 from Home Depot. They marked it down because it was a "slow moving" item. Too bad they didn't do this with my TS3650!! LOL. Anyway, accuracy is a major concern with me, and although I can use the whole teeth-to-the-mark technique, I prefer a laser that shows exactly what the blade is going to remove. This is the sole reason I bought the laserkerf. I only wish that Ridgid would partner with laserkerf and make this item standard with the MS1290LZ. Ridgid should re-name the Exactline Laser Alignment system to the Off By 1/8th-3/16th So You Had Better Account For It Laser Alignment System. But seriously, Ridgid makes some awesome tools, but I think they missed the mark with this one. Pun intended.
