This jigsaw has very good power and comes with blades to get you started. I used it on a custom cabinet to install a apron sink and was able to easily cut angles and got the job done fast!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dustin New blades are a pain to get
I purchased one of these recently to assist in a deck project and future diy projects. I've read just about every review out there. I saw people say they had trouble with blade replacement and others say they had no proble. I took a chance a went for it, I bought some bosch t-shank blades and they didn't fit. The blade lock doesn't fully close therefore not allowing for proper installation. I called ryobi and they gave me a number to call to purchase blade. This is the only surefire way to buy blades and know they'll fit properly. The blower also shoots up and to the right so you can't hold it on the right very well. I ended up returning it and went with a 6.0 amp Skil jigsaw from lowes and it was $10 cheaper. If ryobi fixes this issue then I would give it 4 stars. It cut great and has plenty of power but I couldn't get past the cons.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick123 6.1-Amp Variable Speed Orbital Jigsaw
This is a good jigsaw for projects. We used it to cut out a counter top for a kitchen sink. It ran straight and did not curve off as some jigsaws tend to do. My only problem with this tool is that all my old jigsaw blades will not connect to this tool as the connector is of a different type.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vk Base plate keeps moving
The drill runs great and has plenty of power. The only issue I had was with the base plate. After tightening the adjustment as tight as possible with the allen key, it still can move off of 90 degrees. This kept causing a crooked cut. I ended up returning the saw due to this poor design.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Good, but I'd change a couple of things.
I've always been nervous to buy Ryobi tools, but 84 reviews with an average of 4.4 sold me. . . .that and the fact that the 6.1 amp motor model Ryobi is less than 1/2 the cost of a Dewalt, Makita, Milwaukee or other name brand saws with similar power. The saw works pretty well but there are a couple of things that I think could be improved. First off, the gauge to show the angle of the shoe plate is buried between the shoe plate and the body of the saw, making it very difficult to read what angle it's set at. My second critique is similar. The nose of the saw protrudes far enough over the blade that I feel that I've got to keep my head in front of the saw to be able to see where I am cutting. Bot of these critiques are somewhat minor aggravations and wouldn't prevent me from purchasing this saw again. Things that I like about it:
Plenty of power; variable speed; tool-less blade change chuck, led light shines on the work surface when cutting, decent carrying case included. All in all this feels like a good purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BB Worked well!
I bought this to use for a laminate floor installation. I could not have asked for more. It worked well and I look forward to using it in the future for other projects. It cut easily through the 10mm laminate.
