Default kobalt sliding miter compared to craftsman sliding miter

I purchased the craftsman 10inch sliding miter 2 weeks ago.( on sale plus coupon paid 170.00). Mainly good reviews except poor dust collection and handles not well constructed, neither are big deal to me. DONT LIFT BY HANDLE_easy enough. l have noticed that Kobalt looks very similar exspecially slide mechanism, motor and handle, but slight differences to extension table adjustment screws and left side of fence is higher on Kobalt vs craftsman. I called sears to see if they sold accessory to attach to fence to make it higher but they could not find one. kobalt is 199.00 but has 3 year warranty compared to sears 1 year warranty. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with either saw?

Greetings (your name here) and welcome to the router forum. I do not have any experience with those brands. Now a DeWalt 12" slider that I could comment on.
