Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adrian Nice saw, another well built Bosch product.
I bought this saw for a deck rebuilding project. I'm an advanced DYI'er and a professional woodturner so I'm rather picky about my tools. I read many reviews, but the real test is to pick up a tool and see well how it fits your hands and to get an idea of the manufacturing quality. When I picked up this saw the heft was just right, you know what I mean. Every other saw I picked up, either felt flimsy or cost more than I wanted to spend. This is my 3rd Bosch tool and I am very pleased. However, the cord could be a bit longer. With a longer cord I would have given this a 4.5 - 5 star rating.

A perfect jig saw from the inventor of this thing. It's made in China, but the quality is superb.
I was using this tool for cutting plexiglass and wood. It makes perfect cuts.
Easy to see the cutting area and good maneuverability for its size.
The motor is very powerful, and the blade replacement is super easy.
It comes with plastic shoe cover for delicate materials, which was very helpful for me to avoid scratches on plexiglass.
Very happy whit this tool. Definitely a keeper.

I did a lot of research and found this to be the best bang for the buck. I'm very happy with this jigsaw. It performs much better than any I've used in the past. I'm sure the newer 7amp is even better, but with the $30 sale at the time of my purchase, this model was literally half the price. For only half an amp difference, I feel like this is a better deal and perfectly suited for my needs. I honestly couldn't be more satisfied. I look forward to getting a lifetime of use out of this excellent tool.

I used the jigsaw to cut 1x poplar board for window sills. Enough power, no complaints. Make sure you use the right blade for what you are cutting and you won't have any problems. 5 star product.

Excellent quality. Will last you for years. Plastic switch that controls the dust-blower nozzle is a bit flimsy, but that's the only shortcoming and you rarely change the blower setting.
The saw slides nicely along a metal ruler, so you can cut perfectly straight lines in plywood, etc. using the ruler as a guide. I cut some vinyl trellis with beautiful results (I use C-clamps to hold the ruler in place while I'm cutting).
Comes with a big, rugged carrying case which can hold spare blades, instruction manuals, small tools, etc. Also has a long power cord for convenience. It's packaged with only one blade, so buy extras.
The blade moves straight up and down, or you can have the blade cut at an oscillating angle. Some materials slice better that way. The saw runs at varying speeds, depending on how hard you squeeze the trigger, and the saw has a control to limit the maximum speed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FEDUP914 Is everything made in China??
If I hadn't been told that the jigsaw was still made in Switzerland by a Home Depot Rep. I would not have purchased.

This saw has cut beautifully for my first few projects. I will definitely be investing in the extraction tube for the dust because the dust blower doesn't work as well as I would hope. Otherwise a great tool.
