Marc Spagnuolo (The Wood Whisperer) did a nice roundup and comparison of clamps a while back. JET has a quick-release trigger and an easier-to-grip handle. The only other noteworthy difference across the top 3 brands that I recall is the jaw size.

If you really want to get the most for your money and you can get by until then, wait for sale. If the lack of clamps is blocking you from getting work done, just buy what you need, as you need it, and buy more when there’s a sale. I missed some sales but set up several Amazon alerts for various brands/sizes using, and ended up buying several JET clamps on Black Friday.
