I used the EZ smart for years. The day Festool Track Saws came on the market here in the US I bought one and though I use and prefer a Makita now , I never used my Eureka zone stuff agsin. I sold about 1000.00 worth of Eurtkazone equipment I had on ebay.
For me there is no comparison. Using a saw made to be guided on a track and collect dust inherent in its initial design, the entire point of it's design, compared to a regular saw using parts to make the saw collect dust and be guided in a track is a huge difference. I just could never go back to EZ Smart setup.
I can easily say I never used a true track saw of any brand(Mafell, Festool, DeWalt, Triton and Makita) that wasn't better than EZ Smart. The EZ smart has matured a bit, but the best thing about the EZ smart set up isn't the saw, track or dust collection at all, but the EZ smart table set up. The EZ Smart works so if someone wants to go that way they will benefit, but I can't go back. I think in a side by side set up 9 out of 10 people are going to choose a track saw with a nice cut table over the EZ Smart.
