I needed something to be able to cut 18 x 36 porcelain tiles, and my TileMaster wasn't big enough. This saw with the Alpha guide rail system solved my problem. It made fantastic straight cuts as long the blade wasn't glazed. The quality of the saw is not as refined as my DeWalt DWC860W but it does the job. The only limitation is that it doesn't do mitered cuts which is why I also have the DeWalt.

I have been using the saw to cut pavers and it works great. The depth doesn't get all the way thru the paver but a chisel easily finishes them off. The water works great at keeping the dust down and the blade cool.
