Amazon dropped their price on the Dewalt DWS-779 12" Sliding Compound Miter Saw down to $329, which seems to be a decent price based on past threads. This model is basically the DWS-780 less the shadow cut light, but the light can be added aftermarket for about $60 and a bit of your time.

According to CCC it's been this price on amazon for the better part of the last two years.

You can add a kerf light. I did on mine. I believe it was around $40 to do it. Kerf light is superior to laser.

Internet consensus is that the only difference is the XPS light - do you have any other info?

Sure. For example, look up replacement parts for both saws. They use a lot of different parts. You can look on ereplacementparts.com for instance.

Part numbers aside, there really doesn't seem to be any major differences. Certainly not enough to justify the $150+ price delta (imo). However, adding the XPS light does add ~$65 to the 779. So it seems the 780 may be worth it if that's essential and you'd like to avoid any warranty concerns.

" The DWS779 and DWS780 miter saw are two identical models with one difference. The Dewalt DWS779 does not have the XPS Cutline positioning system (blade alignment marking) that the DWS780 has. Despite the argument that rage online, phone conversations with Dewalt engineers have us convinced that the blade marking light system is the only difference between these saws."

"But when you shop replacement motors, a discrepancy pops up: the two motors are not interchangeable. This has created several online forum discussion about the difference in motor quality, with assumptions made that the 779 uses lower-quality windings and bearings inside the motor.

There is nothing that I can find to substantiate those claims. The Dewalt DWS780 seems to use a slightly different mount and an added adapter for connecting it to the XPS light. Based on my research these motors seem to be very similar and of the same quality."

Grabbed this saw last year with a stand and I love it. Thing is a workhorse. Also added the shadow guide...pretty easy and works 10x better than a laser.

It's not a sliding miter saw. The DWS780 would be the one with a kerf light. https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DWS...551&sr=8-1
