Some food for thought….I rarely use my miter saw. I do the vast majority of crosscuts on my table saw, and only pull out the CMS for really long boards like decking. I don’t know what else is in your arsenal, but my question is are you better off with a better miter saw, or another tool that adds a capability you don’t currently have? (planer, jointer, router, etc)

Most of the common lower priced DPs are pretty similar. Unless you stumble into a great deal on a good used one, or spend a good chunk, i’m not sure there’s a huge difference in the lower to mid range DPs. FWIW, my 13” HF DP has been pretty good.
