This jig saw is pretty good only used it a hand full of times so far. The speed control is taking some getting used to. but It has nice power and hand feel.
The only problem was the Vermont style blades (which I have) do not lock into the chuck, I needed to purchase the Bosch style blades. I did not see this specification on the box when purchased and had to make a return trip to H.D. to purchase.

Ignore the complaints about Bosch blades not fitting correctly. They do need a little persuasion with a brand new, tight chuck but once seated, work fine. I ran this saw almost continuously for 2 hours, only stopped to let battery recharge. (I never continue once battery hits 1 bar. I let it cool then recharge.) I got this sucker hot! My garage is a bit steamy in the Florida summer. Cut 8 large holes in pressure treated 3/4" plywood. It worked like a charm. I also trimmed some stuff as well. Battery life rivals brushless competitors. (I only run a 4 Ah battery.) This is a fantastic bargain at $59.00! Far more versatile with no cord to worry about. I shot the first blade across the room until I figured out how to seat it properly. But it worked perfectly after that. A great value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Davevinci Nice jigsaw...Great customer service!!!
I initially wrote a 2 star review and was contacted by customer service because I complained about the battery life for the jigsaw. So their customer service rep asked a few questions for more info, and to shorten the rest of the story, sent me a super capacity lithium to make up for it! Woohoo!!
That's the only real caveat, you really should have one of the bigger capacity batteries. It cuts good, has lots of adjustments for speed and blade movement. Once I had one of those
It is heavier than a corded saw, but that's to be expected, right? There's always a trade-off.
The blade changes are tool-less, just make sure you have the T shank blades. Despite what some have written, the Bosch blades do work very well. Maybe they didn't buy T shank ones? I don't know.
I am very invested in the Ryobi system, (7 tools currently) and will likely become much more invested as time goes on.

The blade was a little tricky to install but once I figured it out, it worked very well

Little heavy, but convenience of no cord more than makes up for that. Only used it a couple of times so far, but really like it so far.

The blade in my older style Ryobi 18v jigsaw would twist to the right so I couldn't use it with a fence for long straight cuts on aluminum sheet metal. Since the current model has a different style blade clamp. I thought I would try it out. I got it home, chucked up a Bosch 36 TPI blade, and it was almost as twisted as the saw I have now. I packed it and the blades I also bought and immediately returned them for a refund. Why on earth can't Ryobi make a jigsaw that will hold a blade straight? I own quite a few 18v Ryobi 18v tools, some of them as much as 15 years old or more and have been extremely happy with them—they are all still going strong—but there is no way I'm going to buy another Ryobi jigsaw!

I really like the OnePlus product. What I don't like is not be able to buy replace saw blade at the store.
