Laser cut line - Worth it?

I'm going back and forth on a compound mitre saw on whether to get one with a laser, get one with TWO lasers (shows both sides of the cut), or not even bother.

Is it just a gee-whiz feature, or is it really useful?

I always thought the laser on a miter saw would be great so you know where you are going to be cutting. Then I read an article about miter saws and found that some of them have lasers that are easily moved or placed in a bad place on the body of the saw.
The ones I don't understand are on circular saws. The saw moves and so does the laser mark. Guess that tells you how bad you are cutting. Good luck in your choice.
