DeWalt DWS780 vs DW716XPS (DWS779 vs DW716)
The major difference is the cutting capacity and sliding feature. The DWS780 is larger than the DW716XPS, it is heavier, has a larger cutting capacity than the DW716, and the DWS780 is a sliding compound miter saw whereas the DW716XPS does not slide.
The difference between DWS779 and DW716 is similar to the above, because the DWS779 is the DWS780 without the work light system, the DW716 is the DW716XPS without the light.

DeWalt DW716 vs DW715
The difference between them is that the DW716 is double bevel whereas the DW715 is single bevel.
A single bevel miter saw will tilt the blade only to one side, left or right.
A double bevel miter saw is able to tilt the blade to both direction, left and right.
To make it short, a double bevel saw makes it faster and easier for making bevel cuts, it allows you to make certain bevel cuts without having to flip over your work piece. However, with the single bevel saw, you still can get your work done, but maybe a little more time and effort.

DeWalt DW716 vs DW716XPS
The DW716XPS has the XPS light whereas the DW716 does not include. The DW716 Type 20 is NOT compatible with the DW7085 addon XPS system.

DeWalt DHS716 vs DHS790
Both of them can be corded or powered by batteries. The major difference between them is that the DHS716 is a fixed miter whereas the DHS790 is a slider. The DHS716 is smaller, lighter, allowing smaller cuts. While the DHS790 is larger, heavier, it has lager cutting capacity with the slide, and it is also more expensive.
