I like my Kobalt sliding miter saw. The new model looks a lot different than mine, which I bought new in 2016. The only issue I have had with mine is corrosion (rust) on the two slide bars. Wax those bars like you would a table saw top, and wax them when you are going to put the saw away for more than 2 weeks. Other than that, I have used mine to cut 1800 sq ft of laminate flooring and the saw is amazing. You can adjust the laser so the saw blade cuts +/- 1/4" from the line, which is nice for laying flooring because you have to leave 1/4" gap at the wall, so you can just measure to the wall, put the laser on the line, and your cut will leave you 1/4" short of the line.
