It’s hard to compare noise, JBTS-10BT-3 is the only portable saw I’ve owned and it was a while since the last time I used cabinet saw. However I don’t think it’s noisy, probably quieter than my PC corded drill. It certainly does not have that roaring motorcycle kind of noise that hand held circular saws have.
I also bought it for compactness. I do have space and most people in my situation would get bunch of stand alone tools. I just don’t like clutter and accumulating junk and want to be able to tuck everything away neatly.
JBTS-10BT-3 can handle a dado.
Both JET and PC have motors rated 15 Amp. This implies they have the same power, although strictly speaking Amps of a motor is not directly related to power output (i.e. motors with the same peak Amps may have different hp. Your BTS10 is probably less powerful (check it).
