Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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.

For a retired female who does her own work, this really was just what I needed. It is light enough for me to handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WoodChipper Good little saw
Good little saw. I got it for cutting plywood and smaller boards. It works great and the varible speed is awesome!
The ONLY thing that keeps me from a 5 star rating is that there is not a guide notch in the base plate. Its hard to follow marked cut lines without it. It makes you have to go a lot slower than you should have to. Other than that - its a great tool for a DIYer, and a great little saw to have around the house for odds and ends.

Bought as a replacement for a 10 yr old version of the same saw. Works exactly as expected. Great speed, although not adjustable. Doesn't matter, rarely am I cutting something that needs a speed change. I used this on laminate flooring and it worked perfect. For the price and durability you can't beat it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jhoanalyn Perfect tool for my remodelling project
I highly recommend this product. It is simple (I'm a DIY-er) that gets easily intimidated by complicated tools, but I was very comfortable with the black and decker jig saw.
I used it to cut my 1/4 acrylic sheet for my glass backsplash , and I can't believe how easily I achieved my goal with this awesome tool!
The result is magnificent, it looks like I had a contractor-glass expert shape and install my stove backsplash for me! If I can only post my before and after pics, I would, since a picture paints a thousand words!
