Rated 5 out of 5Â by greekboy Great value!
This is a good piece of kit, good features and plenty of power.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Thistimenextyear I like it!
I bought this jigsaw after my bosh jigsaw gave up the ghost, after 30 years hard labor.
It does cut true and straight once you get used to the arrow on the base plate, it cuts on the arrow when the waste is on the left and on the thick of the arrow if the waste is on the right. If you use the laser, the laser beam is the same thickness as the blade.
I have cut 6 mm ply 2440 mm long without a guide perfectly straight. The laser and the light are a great help. The jigsaw blows the dust away from the work piece well.
I liked the Jigsaw so much I am buying an additional two, one for my son in law and one for me, for when my first one conks out.
I only gave it an average for reliability as I have not had it long enough to comment.

Was persuaded to buy this, over a more expensive product, I wish I hadn't bothered. Like the other reviews say, the blade is not perpendicular to the base plate (no matter how you adjust it) the saw then wanders when cutting thicker material. The guide plate locking mechanism is not substantial enough. The guide wheel also did not operate correctly. I returned this product.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Bluebirdnick Doesn't cut straight
this saw has a laser, which would be useful if the blade followed it. It does not - the blade wanders significantly and I have to fight the saw all the way through the cut.
