I bought this saw just after Christmas and have been using it daily since then, at first I was having problems getting used to the tensioning and other things, but this is also the first saw I have owned. Now I have zero problems with the saw, I am not using the stand that came with it, I built my own from some 2x4s and plywood and have no vibration problems at any speed. And to Gaia, make sure you are loosening the lower blade set screw all the way because when I was first starting out I was having the same problem as you, it seemed like the bottom of the blade was going in but it ended up that it wasnt going all the way down, since I started doing that I have no problems with the lower blade coming out. I also have read on this site about roughing the ends of the blades with a file but have not found it necessary. So it might just be because the only other saw I have to compare this to is the Delta ss250 (which I returned less than a week from when I bought it) but I think it is a good saw.
Oh yeah, my table goes 45 in both directions but I had to remove the drop foot to tilt all the way to the right

I did have the bottom of the blade all the way down but it still slipped.
I finally found a way to bend the bottom of the blade so that it catches a bit better on the bottom clamp and have been happily sawing away for a couple of hours today.
I am now one very happy lady. (My Dad's DeWalt is still the better saw by far though.)
