Kobalt 358938

Although less than half the price of the others, this saw comes with many high-end features: micro-miter adjustment, built-in side extensions, a tall fence, and an extra handle for easy transport. The downsides are its sticker-printed miter angles, single-bevel tilt to the left, and tendency to blow sawdust everywhere but into the collection bag.
About $200, 36 pounds; Lowes

Fine print:
15-amp, 4,800-rpm motor. Laser guide.
Max miters: 50 degrees left and right.
