As with all other tools it really depends on the kind of woodworking you do. For long moldings like trimming out the interior of a house, the miter saw is hard to beat. On the other hand, if you spend all your time making small jewelry boxes, you’d probably never want to use one in favor of a sled on the table saw. Mid to large size furniture projects are somewhere in between.

I had both but ended up selling the miter saw because a sled or precision gauge on the table saw was more accurate for the work I do. If I were a trim carpenter in the housing biz, I would have probably made the exact opposite choice
