Rated 5 out of 5Â by BengaliJay Very good cutting tool
This thing comes in handy doing various types of cutting jobs you can imagine. For a DIY project, it is a perfect tool. For a homeowner, having this in your tool box is a must. It is easy to use as the tool itself is very light weight. Blade changing feature is another plus point for this tool. Also the blade storing compartment within the body is an excellent design as it is convenient to store the blade when not using the tool. I look forward to doing more cutting with this jig saw. This tool needs 3 different blades for cutting wood, metal, and plastic and there are three slots for the storage of the blades but the package comes with wood cutting blade only. Blades are not expensive, but Black & Decker could have included all three blades to make it a complete cutting tool.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ESTO1tenT Great for my household projects
I needed a jigsaw to complete some household projects that I have undertaken. I am a single mom and just bought my first house. This little jigsaw has served it's purpose very well. It is light weight and the line of sight feature has certainly helped. I'm a novice, so this is the first jigsaw I have ever owned. I'd recommend it to anyone needing simple, affordable solutions to their needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 Basic Jigsaw for light work
I only needed this for specialty cuts around door frames on 3/8" engineered flooring and 1/4" plywood. Lightweight, and easily controlled.
Using quality blades helps, and it doesn't scroll as easily as more expensive jigsaws do, but it got the job done, and I still have all of my fingers. Tool less blade changes are a big plus!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Hepcat This product has good value
Works as advertised. About the least expensive jig saw out there. Probably not up to daily professional use, but for the do-it-yourselfer or occasional user it works very well and is definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Flotsam Perfect for a Woman DYIer
I have been able to use this product with ease for all kinds of projects from cutting metal basket hangers for customizing my closet space, to fine, rounded cuts in wood for cabinetry and flooring. It may not be the fanciest or most powerful on the market, but I use it all the time and have never been disappointed.
