I use a Makita 12" mated to a Ryobi stand I bought about 7 or 8 years ago. I was worried a bit about the Ryobi at first, but it has turned out to be a solid and useful stand. The handle in the middle balances it, making it easy to carry, and it sets up fast. I do a lot of outdoor garden structures, and it would be helpful to have adjustable leg extensions to find that solid spot. I made some small shelves that fit on either side of the saw that hold tapes, info, all that stuff, and that would have been a nice touch from the factory. But for $99, I can't complain.
