This acquisition is a conversion from an old circular saw (with a wobbly blade) to a track saw. I have already used it in both normal as well as plunge mode, both with the track. It is precise, with intuitive operations and excellent dust collection. The saw rides in the track smoothly and without any play. As other reviewers have mentioned, the power, though adequate for my needs, may cause it to struggle a bit with thick hardwoods. I have often balked at the Festool prices but in the end I have never regretted any Festool purchase.

Believe the Hype
This saw is worth every penny. It defines a new category of saw. For the garage amateur, it greatly expanded my capabilities without having to invest in the space or equipment of a table saw.
