I’ll follow-up with Brandon’s question; What do you plan on using it for? And what are you expecting from it?

I would stay away from the Kobalt, not because of quality, but it’s only a 7 1/4” and I think you will be real disappointed with such a small blade.

If your basing most of your decision on price, then go with the Harbor Freight. It will be handy for basic cross cutting lumber and basic trim carpentry. I would have my doubts about real accuracy.

If your looking for more quality cross cuts and miters, then like Brandon said, you would be better to save up for a better saw. I realize it’s real easy for someone else to spend your money, so don’t feel bad if that’s all you can spend right now for a saw.

Most of us can’t afford the top of the line from the get-go, but we’ll be glad to tell you that’s what you need. LOL.

Good luck and enjoy your new saw.
