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.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeannie Useless for me
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RogerKK much better than the old blue version
I finally had enough with my old blue version on the Ryobi Cordless jigsaw. The old version's blade would eventually turn slightly so that for me to cut a straight line the jigsaw would have to be held at an angle. I have a lot of Ryobi cordless tool and the old, blue, jigsaw was my least favorite tool.
This new Yellow version is much, much better and worth the price. Some reviewers have commented on the standard blades from other manufactures not fitting. You have to make sure it seats properly or the blade will pop out. It happened to me on a Dewalt jigsaw blade. I put it in a again and it held and made great cuts. I also like the new Blade saver feature which allows you to raise the saw base further away from the bottom of the saw allowing you to use a different part of the blade which may be worn out. I gave it 4 stars, not the 5 due to the blade lock issue. Other than that I am happy with my purchase.
