are very confusing to me.

I've looked at all the differently branded new releases and am not sure that most are not the same things with different names/prices. Am I right or mistaken on this??

I'm talking about the likes of Cadet, Matador, Dreadnought, Maggard and (maybe) Sabi.

What are your thoughts/knowledge on this y'all??

Michael, I do not think you are mistaken at all.

There are many copies and tweaks of existing (and discontinued) razors, but you will find not only do prices vary, but so do results. Some may be fine shavers, but I've not had first hand experience with any of the brands you have mentioned so I'm unable to direct you in choice in regards to these.

EJ and Muhle are a classic example. They have the same safety bar head, yet are priced rather differently. The OC FaTip and Joris is yet another example.

You will have to wait for someone else to chime in.

Cadets - I think are new
Dreadnaught - I think is a reworked EJ89. (And it is also sold as a Blue Beard Revenge Razor)
Sabi - I think are Gillette Copies.

I have not heard of the Matador or Maggard.

However, I am sure that there will be others that will see your post and will know much more that I do about these other razors.

Matador razor is a Cadet. Maggard is a house brand I heard is very good and looks somewhat like an EJ. Priced at $15.95 certainly a bargain.

however, I am sure that there will be others that will see your post and will know much more that I do about these other razors.

I use the Cadet Mongoose, in my razor rotation I love how it shaves.
Good value for the money.

Everyone seems to be making stainless steel 3 pieces. Are they really all that different?
