Have a look at the Screwfix forum - there's quite a few generally good comments on this saw. It does look good value.
There's even a few recommendations on how to improve things with a few adjustments.
Yes the throat plate is rubbish and will soon break but its easy enough to make a new one and the other problem is the fence which is nut robust enough to stop the far end pushing away as you feed through the wood.
The easy answer for this is to clamp a small piece of wood against the far end to stop it pushing away. After saying all this the saw itself is very good for the money.
