Corded Circular Saw recommendations

Hello Forum,

I'm looking to purchase a corded circular saw, but not sure what I should be looking at. It will be used for home projects, not commercial use. Don't need a super, deluxe model that will break the bank, but one with useful features, amps, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

More so than brand I'd look at the amps. Preferably a 15 amp saw but definitely not one under 13 amps. I also prefer a left hand saw.

Oh, is it that time of year again? For a circ saw thread I mean? Lol Probably one of the several questions that will draw tons of purely opinion based answers. Here's some links to a couple of older some prices mentioned may be out of date.
Bought my first cicular saw - Ryobi 14 amp , 7 1/4 CSB 135L

Help me find a circular saw, please!

Yep, big factor is blade on the left or blade on the right. Once you know which you prefer, the options narrow.

Welcome to the forums.

Fairly old thread. Hopefully.... the OP hasn't waited this long to purchase a saw.
