Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by yardwaist design flaws
I confess, I haven't used it yet, but there are some clear design flaws right out of the box. Two frills of this saw are the hex-key and blade storage areas. The blade storage area is simply too small to fit the blade that the saw comes with. Seriously? Yes. And the hex-key storage only fits one of the keys at a time (you need to have two different sizes). Hard to believe, but unfortunately true. Hopefully the thing cuts through wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spongeface Great tool.
this is a great tool. comparable to all the major brands, and much better in price. The blade selection it comes with is nothing to brag about, and actually, that is disappointing, since the accessories always reflect on the quality of the product, however, this is a great hand tool.. the Ryobi hand tool line is a decent and comparable line of tools in my opinion.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allthumbs52 Good saw for the price
I bought this to go with my two tool combo kit, and to cut out shelves for my recently built wood shed. Does a goo job, cut 5/8" plywood with little effort using the supplied blade.
On off switch could be placed a little higher up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 88motley Great little saw
I have used this saw to cut laminate counter tops, hard and soft wood and it performs excellently. The battery lasts a long time and it gives a quality cut. Easy to maneuver around and light weight. Great addition to the set.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Hit or miss quality
I have a few of these saws and found that it is "hit or miss" quality. One of my saws died early on and was not replaceable under warranty. My second saw has an intermittent switch problem and again, was not replaced. My third saw is still going good. Not "Professional" quality but keep in mind that it IS battery operated and made for the mid or lower price point user, in my opinion. Cuts are better when used with a high quality blade. Ryobi support is lacking. Products were not replaced by Ryobi because the stamped date codes were out of warranty (just a couple weeks after purchasing). I'm not the best at tracking receipts so I mark this one up to a poor product by Ryobi and poor record keeping by me. Works ok with the older ni-cad & better with the Lithium batteries.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DickB Good so far
I decided to buy this saw when my corded saw started failing due to worn brushes, as I already have several One Plus tools. I was not aware that the saw comes with special t-shank blades, and although the operator's manual warns about it, regular blades have worked fine for me. I like how quick and easy it is to change blades with no tools - my old saw required a hex wrench that kept falling out of its holder. The built-in storage compartment is not big enough to hold the longer of the two blades that comes with the saw, an obvious design flaw. The yellow plastic guard is difficult to remove and install, so I don't use it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andre Blade storage??
I needed a jigsaw, and I'm already invested in Ryobi One+. So this was purchased. It works fine. I used it to cut a rectangle out of a 2x6 (the corners were drilled first). Had no problems. Seems sturdy. I was very pleasantly surprised that the laser guide was so helpful. Most of the time, tools come with a laser guide that might as well not be there. Inserting and removing the blade was very easy and required no tools. Only "shank" type blades are accepted though.
My only problem comes from the "blade storage" compartment. Sure the smaller supplied blade fit in the compartment, but the larger, wood one did not. Two hex wrenches came with the jigsaw, but the compartment did not hold them securely enough for my liking. Ryobi, I just want to ask how you can design a blade storage compartment and then include a blade that does not fit into said compartment? I deduct one star from your grade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thaiman bought this item and was impressed with the portability of
not having to carry an extension cord. I like the scrowing
capability to make designs and circles. the laser is good for straight cuts but not much use for cutting in circles.
which is ok. I like the angle setting for cutting at different degrees. very good product. Very easy to replace the blade with out having to use an allen wrench. life is good.
