Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peter Worth every penny!
Very easy to use and manipulate, many times better than my corded B&D of 7 years a go and using a bosch 20 TPI blade, it left the side I cut smoother than if I was sanding it! No exaggeration - really worth the money. Just make sure to use the 3Ah or 4Ah batteries as it needs the extra energy. It is not a Bosch or a Makita but It cuts very accurately for the price! I am very satisfied with it!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TTRaleigh T-Shank blades are NOT standard size - Bosch will not fit
I purchased this jigsaw after having the old blue model that would not cut no matter what. It's like the motor runs in reverse. This newer model so far works pretty good! The only down side is that it's supposed to accept standard T-shank blades. I had some Bosch T-shank blades that I had used in the old blue model jigsaw, but they will not work in this new model. I went to my local HD on Capital Blvd in Raleigh and they don't even sell Ryobi jigsaw blades. 99% of what they had were Bosch and a couple of knock off brands. What are you supposed to do???? I spoke with an employee about this and he was kind enough to open one of the new jigsaws and compare the size of the blade it comes with. The Bosch blade is longer from the top of the T to the top tip and this causes it not to seat all the way in where the locking collar can rotate fully into locked position. I'll probably see if I'm still within my return window and go with the DeWalt that I wanted in the first place. I have other Ryobi tools that I really like but in my opinion, they made a major boo boo with this one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VitiminJ Great cordless saw
I purchased the saw to help me with a table I was building for my Big Green Egg. I had to cut a 21" D circle, I also used the saw to round the edges on the table. Overall the saw worked great. I was a little worried that the saw would struggle being a 18V battery. That was not the case. The Ryobi saw had more than enough power to complete the task.
The following weekend I helped my uncle install some Pergo flooring in his family room. I used the jig saw to cut the pieces around the fireplace and register covers. Again the saw performed beautifully.
The "save a blade" feature was really cool. The base of the saw extended to use a new section on the blade.
I own several Ryobi cordless tools. I love that the same battery fits all of the tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkW4CHL Fantastic quality and features in a portable jigsaw, and One+ compatible no less!
Fantastic value and features comparable to corded with added bonus using Ryobi One+ batteries!
Elsewhere a reviewer lamented there is no saw guide for this Ryobi jigsaw. Though no OEM guide is available, the Milescraft 14000713 Saw Guide works great with this jigsaw and the Ryobi P501 circular saw as well as B&D 14.4v 7" circular saw!
+ saw saver feature really works!
+ adjustable orbiting action works well and easily adjusted
+ comparable performance to my old corded jigsaw
+ variable speed with ability to lock at any speed!
+ takes either U or T shank blades
+ very positive acting quick install and release mechanism for blades
+ LED illuminates front of blade well
- a bit larger than some of the competitors, especially corded ones
- blower is better than nothing but not much

Love this jigsaw. My tools were stolen last year and I've been replacing with Ryobi One+ products.
This jigsaw was easy to use, I had no problem installing the blade. The adjustable speed was very helpful for my initial project and I imagine that it will be useful down the road as well.
This tool is lightweight but has enough power for the average homeowner/ DYI-er.

I was wondering if this tool would have the same guts as a jigsaw that you can plug in. I have been pleasantly surprised. I love it. Holds a charge well and lasts for a lot longer than I imagined. Great versatile tool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Blades don't fit
Great tool powerful and light weight. Huge problem with design, the only blades that fit are the ryobi brand or ridgid brand blades unfortunately no Home Depot caries them. I went to two stores and had two associates open all brand blades sold in store only to find out that none of them fit. How am I suppose to use this tool every day if the only way I can get blades is to order them online and wait a week. This is a total waste of time. If Home Depot would begin to stock these blades I would recommend this tool until then I'm screwed with waiting for the mail man.

Be aware this doesn't come with blades at all. And I've yet to find a store that carries them. Bottom line I can't even try the dang thing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Good Saw -Bad blower
The saw has very good power and would have been a perfect fit to my growing Ryobi tools collection. It cuts 3/4 in plywood easily and the speed adjustments and tooless are also a plus. However dispite the package saying it has a "powerfull" dust blower, the dust blowing is non existent and therefore makes the saw useless for me. I have to stop after every few inches of cut to remove dust from my saw path so i can see my lines. I called Ryobi tech support and the person I spoke with was refeshingly candid and told me that the dust blower has been a main customer complaint. He said the Ryobi team is aware of this and are working to address it, most likely with a newer modle. I will return this and get something else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Whitey Works Well
Okay, it isn't yellow or blue but it is three times less expensive too. I have used the saw a couple of times now and I am impressed. The adjustments and features aren't as nice as my DeWalt or Makita but the power is definitely on par. The base plate feels a little cheap but it hasn't bent after being dropped a couple times, battery lasts as expected, and the orbital feature works well. I would recommend it to anyone looking to expand their One+ kit. I still hate the neon green and the Star Trek look of Ryobi's tools. However it is hard to beat the value for the home owner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pino Strong Cutting Action
I have an old Craftsman jigsaw which doen't even come close to the cutting power this jigsaw has and it is a corded saw. I had no problem cutting through 3/4" plywood so I tried it on a 2x4. It went through the 2x4 almost as easily as my circular saw. I'm not crazy about the fact it only takes "T" blades, but I guess I'll get used to it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Diva Horrible for a small woman
Okay, I hate to be a party downer because everyone else loves this jig saw...but, NO. I'm a small woman with small hands. This "turn this counter clockwise" chuck holder is massive for my fingers. Which are a third the strength and size of most male hands. Perhaps I have a defective one, but no matter how many times I try ,I can't get the saw blade to stay put. The minute I turn this little sucker on, the blade flies off. And the directions are almost non-existent; no help there. This has been a consistent issue for me with Ryobi...not made for a woman's strength. I vastly prefer Mikita or Bosch and from now on I'm going to stay with those brands. This has delayed my project and eaten up valuable time on my days off...grrr.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tony Solid tool for the DIY, small to medium projects.
Purchased based mostly on the influence of the other one+ tools I have already. I was torn between this and a corded model which had a laser pointer for guide (other brand). Final decision was based more on the cordless feature. I like to do occasional projects but I dislike being tired to power cord. For first use I had to cut long straight cuts and large rounded cuts to make a large poker table. I found the guide was slightly off but once I figured out the visual alignment the tool was easy to work with. I did cut a lot of MDF 3/4 inch wood and cutting around 40 or more feet of liner work did require a battery swap, actually 3.
Happy with the tool and the power. Slightly surprised but the battery power consumed until I looked back at the large amount of cutting.
Would purchase again. Good tool, plenty of power, lots of features but would still liked a laser sight. Does have lights on cutting area so it really was fine.
Not a tool for the professional grade, but for DIY its great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gmgcreative Just the right tool to expand my set...
I hate to come off all "Tim Allen" and chauvinist, but I bought this saw because my girlfriend wanted to do fine crafts with my tools... nope. All mine are for rough carpentry and such; general use tools.
I needed a fine cut on non-linear patterns.
This saw was so easy to use, even a girl can do it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Great tool, works well, but lacks just one feature
The jigsaw is powerful, cuts well, and has variable speed control (did the reviewers that faulted the slow speed read the manual and discover the speed control?) it cuts as well as my Craftsman jigsaw, but I wish it had the ability to turn the blade via a knob on top for cutting in tight spaces. I've replaced many of my corded tools with the Ryobi 18v lithium+ series and haven't been disappointed yet. Even the 5 1/2" circular saw works well for plywood and 2-by lumber.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloydT3 Love The Saw... BUT....
I love all of my Ryobi 18V One+ Tools.
I bought this saw to replace, my still working, old blue model.
It cuts very well and I love the fact that I can adjust the speed for the cuts that I make.
BUT... The Home Depot does NOT sell blades for this. My local Home Depot is in Queensbury NY and none of the stores in the northeast carry the blades for it. HomeDepot.Com used to show them online but now only offers a single blade replacement option AND will not ship to a New York address. I was lucky enough to contact a store manager in South Carolina who had them in stock in his store and he shipped them to me. Kinda' ridiculous to have to go through all of that nonsense to buy blades.
Bottom Line: I love the tool but hate the hassle that goes along with having to resort to eBay to find a blade for it that should be made available at any local Home Depot and / or especially HomeDepot.Com

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Very Good Jig Saw
I love this 18 Volt One+ Orbital Jig saw. I never used my corded jig saw anymore since purchasing this RYOBI cordless saw. It performs very well on any material that you would used a jig saw on. It has plenty of power to get the job done, but if the battery does run down, it can be changed in seconds. With the proper charger, the batteries can be recharged in 30 minutes or less. The run time is dependent upon the type of material being cut

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Taggy Great purchase
I am completely happy with the jig saw. It handles well and is easy and accurate to use. I was disappointed, however, that an edge guide did not come with it and when I went back to the store it was not available. As it turns out, I have an edge gide for a circular saw that does the trick,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Raiden Didn't work on a particle board
I bought a box of 6 Ryobi tool set. Liked it so much that I got this to add to my collection. Took it out of the box, put it together, put it in the hole I made in the particle board to cut a hole for my sister's sink. It stalled over and over again. I couldn't go 2 inches. I had 2, fully charged, batteries and yet nothing. It was embarrassing since I have been bragging about the set of Ryobi tools I had to my Bro in law. Womp Womp..... I have just returned it and figured I should read some reviews. It seems very positive so maybe it was just the one I bought. I will try it one more time.

Sought this Ryobi on amazon and ebay. Saved 25 - 30% on item price and received free delivery to boot. Arrived ahead of schedule. The One+ family of cordless tools is outstanding and the JigSaw fits right in with the others. Home Depot outshone the opposition on this one by a long margin...well recommended.

I like the light feature and the fan that blows saw dust out of the way. I also liked the guard. The quick release of the blade is nice ,but the blades are not readily available in any store I went in. I had to order them on line and wait for them. the orbital feature and the speed controls are excellent.
