I bought this set sometime in Dec. 2015, and used it for several projects - kitchen nook, 2 bath vanities, a picture frame, a modification on an Ikea dining table, and various repairs around the house.
I loved the saw in particular for the low noise level.
Most of the material cut were 3/4 thick ply or pine, and the tiny battery is good for quite a few cuts.
As a reference, recently I charged the battery full and cut the Ikea table leaf that was 2 inch thick. I did the equivalent of 12 feet if work before the battery quit.
The saw blade included is very rough (24 teeth?). I bought a 34 tooth blade, which cuts pine almost just as fast as the original blade, but leaves a much smoother cut.
I think this set is definitely worth to be considered specially by a rookie.
