I can’t speak to the quality of the miter saws you list, but can agree with most here who tell you that a table saw is the way to go for accurate miter cuts. I bought a Bosch 4100, without the very nice gravity rise stand for @$400, and have been very happy with it. It is just a benchtop/portable table saw, but it has been very accurate and strong enough for what I’ve needed. For boxes, it should be plenty. I added the rockler cross cut jig, and have been very pleased with my miter cuts. The Bosch TS is also small and easy enough to move around if space is an issue. I think you will find that a table saw is well worth the investment, you can do so much more, and for about the same price as a decent CMS or SCMS.
