If you line the board up properly then you will get a proper 45 degree angle.
That said, there are a number of issues with it.
1. Not mentioned on the listing, but the best way to use this (and the way recommended on the packaging) is to clamp it to a workbench. I didn't have a workbench or a clamp, so i've been using it laid flat, which means the board can move around inside it.
2. The clips which turn in to hold the board in place do not go in very far, so I ended up also slipping in a thin book to hold the board flat (the board was 20mm thick, and the depth of the gap is about 30mm). I should also note that there are three of these, not two (as shown in the picture) - the product you'll get is a bit taller than it looks here.
3. The brown guide strips you see in the picture are made of a thin layer of flimsy plastic. A sharp saw will eat into them so they are no longer flat - and so the cut you get is also not entirely straight. After you've sawed through that plastic, you also cut into the relatively cheap MDF from which the EMIR product is made - which again can be cut so the line doesn't end up straight.
Even with all of the above flaws though, the product does get you pretty close to a decent 45 degree angle - and it works.
It seems to be well assembled, but my main complaint would be the quality of the materials. The structure is MDF, and I can't see the thread which accepts the plastic thumb screws lasting very long. Additionally, the Tufnel wear strips have worn quite badly where the saw blade has been in contact with them (I have been using a fine toothed 11TPI saw). The instruction leaflet does say that the strips will need to be replaced periodically, but I have only made 28 (careful) cuts so far. I would have hoped it would last a little longer.
Nevertheless, for the price, I can't complain. All in all, it's an inexpensive solution for the occasional DIYer.

quite expensive for what it is and doesn't always give you a good mitre, needs careful usePublished 19 days ago by R. Benson
Fell apart after a few cuts. Just about got the job done. Great example of a good idea poorly executed. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Not worth it. There is no way to secure the saw while cutting so you end up with a cut that tapers. Would not buy again, would not recommend. Do not waste your cash.Published 6 months ago by Rob
Not great quality - I had to glue & nail one side back on after a days use. However, it did the job.Published 9 months ago by Tom W
Does the job. Mine separated after a few cuts and I had to screw and glue it back together.Published 10 months ago by Aubrey Leonard Green
Wasn't heavy duty enough for big skirting I found. The plastic clamping bolts didn't grip well. Discarded it after doing the one job. Read morePublished 11 months ago by master krisp
