You can do a better job of cutting plywood with a battery powered saw. I use sawhorses to lay the plywood on. I lay the sheet down on the sawhorses and use an 8 foot level and 2 c-clamps as a guide for the saw to help make the cuts straight. The battery saws are much safer and do a fine job of cutting plywood, you just need another battery in the charger while using the saw so when it time to change the battery you can keep going. Table saws are nice, but they take up a lot of space, cost alot of money, and can be very dangerous. if you are a casual user, get a nice 18 volt saw, an 8 foot level, and 2 c-clamps. You will be happy with the results and still have some room for other things. And yes I have a table saw, I use the leval and clamps most all of the time.
