I've been using an inexpensive oscillating tool that has several problems- it's noisy, hard to change blades, and the blades loosen during use. I find an oscillating tool very useful but was frustrated with my cheap one, I decided to upgrade to the Dremel.
The Dremel is quieter, has variable speed, a captive blade-changing wrench, and magnetic grip to hold the blade in place while tightening. On high speed, it really zips through wood.
This kit comes with an MM480 Wood Flush Cut Blade, MM450 Wood and Drywall Blade, MM435 Drywall Jab Saw Blade, MM11 Dremel Hook and Loop Pad, plus 11 assorted grit sandpaper.
The power cord is more flexible than most tools making it easier to manage when working and fold to store in the plastic case. The case has posts for storing the blades so they won't slide around. The blade-changing wrench stores securely on the tool body, detaches easily, and is comfortable to use.
The manual has a table showing what speeds to use for which tasks using each blade. Note that the manual linked on the product page is for a different Dremel Multi-Max - the MM45. You can find the MM30 manual on the Dremel web site.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sawdust dave works great
I bought this to remove grout between tiles in a bathroom renovation. Cut the grout like a hot knife through butter. Very impressed. Would highly recommend for this type of work

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FLBOY Fantastic multi-function tool
I purchased the tool to handle so grout work I needed to do. The tool handled the project with ease and was worth it's weight if that was the only thing it did. Shortly thereafter I used it to do some wood cutting in a tight area and again, worked liked a dream. So much easier than hand sawing. Something larger saws just couldn't handle due to size.

with excellent results.

I was reflooring my kitchen, but did not remove the cabinets. I had to remove the flooring down to the subfloor since there were two layers of vinyl already in place. There was no way I was going to chisel away the jagged edges around the cabinets. Running out of time before a party, I picked up the mm30 and in no time I had flush cuts against the cabinets. I know which tool to grab from now on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TXRemodeler Not bad for home use
This is a well made oscillating tool with one con. In my opinion it isn't quite powerful enough. For normal home use I don't think the average user would have any issue with this tool. I have used the Bosch version of this tool as well and it has much more power. One other thing that bugged me was having to remove a nut to change blades. The Bosch tool has a lever that is extended to release the blade.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DstBstSN Nice to have
This is the type of tool you don’t appreciate until you use. The few things I have enjoyed the most thus far is the ability to cut and sand in tight spaces and the ability to flush cut molding around flooring. As for the tool, it seems solid in the hand and the head/blade change system is easy enough. Do you ‘need’ this tool? Probably not, because you might already have other tools that do one or two of the tasks this one does. Does it make doing certain projects easier? It certainly does and for that reason I’m happy I have one.
