I have a Dewalt 12" slide miter saw. if you watch for when the new models come out you can get last years model at a discounted price. The new ones are about $550 but you can find brand new last year models for $350. They have done this for years and the "special purchase" saws are usually $200 less than the new model. Also, invest in the best saw blade you can. I have a 100 tooth Diablo by freud. It makes glass smooth cuts. Best saw blade I've ever used.
