It is all that I expected
The power cord is very stiff, making it difficult to use in a cold environment. The saw works fine. It would be nice to have the rip fence for the saw

A real clunker
I bought this saw based on the price and the positive reviews last year. This year, when I really needed it (of course), the depth-adjustment mechanism broke. And not just broke a little bit, I mean this thing BROKE. This rendered the saw pretty useless for one of a its most useful features - adjustable depth! I really need that feature in a circular saw. Now this saw is permanently stuck at a certain depth, making it good for cutting down debris to fit into bags, but not much else.

It was okay before it broke, but it is very cheaply made and the shoe (?) is flimsy. I figured I could get by on it since I used it regularly, but in short bursts. Nope. Spend another $30 and get something a little beefier that you'll only need to buy once. Hitachi and Makita offer far better saws in that price range. If you really want the Skill, fork out the money and get the proper worm-drive ones. Much better.

I have an old Skill circular saw. I mean OLD. I bought it new in about 1960. It still runs fine but because it is so heavy and clunky, I use it mainly on cement board and other things I would not subject my newer saws to. But it is amazing to me how similar these two saws are. They look like they came off the same exact assembly line, the only difference being that the motor case and handle case are plastic on the new one. Oh, and the build quality on my 51 year old saw is way better.
