Easy To Use
This was a great addition to my garage shop and I’ve used it to on many of my DIY builds. Ranging from cutting out holes for my corn hole boards to cutting out a notches for my variety of workbenches within my shop. I’d definitely recommend this tool!

Did well
Blades provided are too flimsy. Bought the Diablo fine finish blades and it worked without issue cutting the arch on my gate.

Dissapointed
I purchased this saw about two years ago and like all my Ryobi tools it preformed very well. The saw was perfect fro the small jobs i needed it for. Unfortunately the blades it came with have finally gave out. Here is where the problem starts. I went to my local Home Depot, where i bought the saw, to get replacements and the gentleman who helped me was quick to give me what he said would be the right blades for it. Unfortunately these blades did not fit at all. It is near impossible to find replacement blades for it. The design of the blade is a combination of the two most common blades on the market. Neither of these other blade designs will fit in to my saw. I have searched online and nothing is available. Home depot does not sell these blades in store or online. This is very disappointing because i have always been able to get everything i need a my local Home Depot. All my power tools are Ryobi and i have never had this problem with any of my other tools. I will now have to find a replacement brand saw to replace this one. I hate that i have to do this because I like i previously stated the saw works great.

I purchased this in 2018 & it is still going strong with no issues & perfect cuts every time (with quality blades). I did one complete home remodel, several other jobs & now in 2020 I'm remodeling another home & I couldn't be happier with how much work this has handled. This is a great item at a great price & definitely recommend it.

Great little tool
I bought it about a month ago needed to cut a bigger hole on my unitub to access some pipes and a friend had suggested a jig saw with the help of the variable speed and a carbide blade I was a able to get the job done quickly and effortlessly would highly recommend

I didn’t get to use my Ryobi jigsaw much. When it was working it was working great and still is. The problem I have is the chuck that holds the blade popped out while I was using it. I’ve tried several times to replace it but it still pops out. Nothing on Youtube to help with this problem either. Hard to give a review on this matter.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! The guide roller for the blade has a "hardened" pin with a snap ring that keeps the roller aligned with the blades movement....it is NOT hardened at all. On my third Ryobi Speedmatch jigsaw, and it broke the pin the same way the first two did. This has to be a defective design element. Will return, and seek different manufacturer.

Works well when it works, but it broke after less than an hour of use. Metal gears aren't much good when the tiny steel pin moving the blade snaps. Guess I should have kept the box to return this junk.
