Worked flawlessly for my purpose - through the wall venting of a portable A/C unit. Perfect diameter for exterior venting and duct.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sterling Does not cut holes large enough...
Cut 6 holes, went to insert cans and they do not fit, hole seems to be to small by about a 1/4 inch all the way around. Trying to make holes bigger takes more time then just cutting all of them by hand. Stupid. Btw no arbor.

This is not a cheap tool, but worth every penny. Not sure how you perform the task without this gem. The saw is relatively light, considering how big it is. Have cut 13 holes through 1/2 inch sheetrock and the hole saw still looks brand new.
Agree with SIRSPENDALOT, go slow for best results. Going slow, you do not even tear the paper on the attic side of the drywall. Suggestion for cleaner operation, in addition to going slow - have a helper hold a trash can lid below the drill, otherwise you spread a lot of drywall dust and insulation around the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by andrewwynn fantastic tool for recessed lights & more
4 vs 5 stars simply because it has a pilot bit but NO ARBOR in the kit; it's actually $40 not $30, that said, probably worth double that based on this example alone: i drilled a hole in a porcelain tile in less than a minute with this tool; absolutely stunning!
Use a 'crumb catcher' there are commercially available ones but i just used the bottom of a bucket with a hole, wrapped some foam tape around the top and not a speck of dust falls when cutting overhead holes.

I needed something to cut holes in drop ceiling to accommodate some LED fixtures that are about the same size as a 6" can light...the drop ceiling tiles are more of a masonite material and this thing did a great job. It would also work well in drywall and thin plywood.

Used this tool to put in 7 recessed lights in a neighbors kitchen. Worked great. No issues at all. Makes perfect holes for 6 Inch recessed lights. I also purchased a cheap plactic plant tray ($1) and then cut a hole in the bottom so the drill bit could fit though it. That way when I drilled the holes the tray caught all the dust.
