I am a serious DeWalt fan. My first power tool was a DeWalt nine-inch  
radial arm saw I bought 46-47 years ago. It has been used plenty. I  
have wired it back and forth from 120 to 240 depending on power source  
and hauled it around to many new residences. The motor has never had a  
lick of work. It sits in my garage here and still does anything I ask  
of it, accurately.

Based on that history I bought a couple years ago the twelve-inch  
DeWalt sliding miter saw. I am totally happy with it.

A premium with the above was a 5/8-inch air brad nailer. Haven't tried  
it yet.

I bought last year a DeWalt corded half-inch drill. I changed the  
chuck to keyless. I like it fine, except I am still getting used to  
the power. Have gouged my hands a bit from forgetting to unplug when  
changing a bit when it still had the keyed chuck.
