Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John Allen Don't waste your money. Can't even trim a hedge!!
The chain bar is to flexible. The oiler doesn't work, the chain won't stay on no matter how you adjust it. Noisey and rattles. I RETURNED IT IN LESS THAN 2 (TWO) HOURS.
I bought a Ryobi pole saw instead. Much better. Same money!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cnjontheroad This darn lil saw
I gave this Electric saw an average rating, because of a couple of items. First the cord attachment area is too small for the right sized cord to fit in to the handle. Then the so called anti-kickback protector on th etip of the bar kept hanging up on small limbs and causing the chain to come off, after several times ,I removed the tip cover and had no more problems. The Adjustment part is a good idea as I did not need tools to remove the chain and clean / replace it several times it came off.
I would not recomend it to a novice user.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tam45 First chainsaw purchase
I needed a chainsaw for small jobs around the house, but I've never used one before. I didn't want anything too heavy since I am getting older lol. Only used this a little bit so far but love it, super easy to get ready to use and fairly lightweight as well

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Al Pleasantly surprised with performance
Purchased this electric chainsaw to save myself a bunch of money! Had a rather large tree (24 in. diameter trunk) and branches that ranged from 12 inches and under. This chainsaw did the job! The 12 amps was more than adequate and allowed me to use normal house current. The instructions recommend a 50 ft 14 Guage power cord which I purchased to go along with the saw. The chain held up very nice requiring I sharpen just once during several hours of cutting. If you want to purchase a backup chain I recommend a Oregon 56S. As mentioned by another reviewer, I also removed the tip guard. Also aka sure you check the chain oil reservoir frequently. For the price, this was a great deal as opposed to paying a tree surgeon 700 dollars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mark chainsaw I needed
A branch fell from a tree and I needed a saw. I didn't need a gas chainsaw so this was a good value however I do wish it had about 4 more amps to the motor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PGoTer easy to use chainsaw
I have used my Homelite 16" electric chainsaw for a few months now. I use the chainsaw to cut logs and branches from around the yard mostly hard wood Red Oak, Maple and others. I find the saw easy to use it is quite has plenty of power for logs up to 15" to 16". The Chain is easy to adjust and the auto chain oiler works well, easy to fill, no driping of oil on bench after use. I have never had the chain jump off the chain bar. One con I wish that the chain had a brake auto stop when you let go of the trigger. A big pro not having to mix and store gas, no smell, no noise, very easy to use. Pete in North Carolina.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oscarcat Great for small jobs - light duty-occasional use
Similar to what others concluded, this saw is super convenient for occasional light duty use. I judged the 16" blade to be ideal given the nature of cutting this saw is designed for. Perfect for clean up after a storm or winds. I ruled out cordless because the battery would not be ready after sitting. And batteries are expensive when replacement is required. I was cutting 10-12" limbs today, then sectioning them in firewood size pieces. Light weight and easy to handle. Quiet - no ear protection required. As for comments regarding the chain falling off, I noticed my blade tension adjust knob became loose due to vibration and use. With that knowledge, after every 3-4 cuts I check it and give it a quarter to one third turn. If you don't, it will get loose and the chain will fall off as others noted. Not a deal breaker for me, just something one should remember to do. Meanwhile the manufacturer needs to address this by re-engineering the blade tension knob so it remains where it is set. A lock nut type of set up??? Mfg should also include a starter pint of chain oil. Speaking of which, I noticed when holding saw at 90 degrees to cut a small tree, oil trickles out of the hole in the filler cap. Simple things the mfg can address to make a good product great. FYI I own a 16" gas chain saw but after sitting since last season the primer bulb was shot and the repair was going to cost almost as much as this electric saw.
