Summary: Cuts smooth & fast without being too bulky. Good line of sight illuminated with LED light. Gentle stream of air generated by cut to keep the debris from inhibiting your view of the work-piece. Feels well-built. Have used mostly on pressure-treated 3/4" plywood.
Summary: After several disappointing tries with other brands and older saws, I had pretty much given up on jigsaws in general.

Summary: I bought this jig saw a few months ago and finally had an opportunity to use it yesterday when I was building my work bench. The saw performed flawlessly throughout the project. For the money I think its the best jig saw on the market, bar none.
Summary: I am recently retired and I have a few home repair projects going on. I needed a new Jig Saw and didn't want to spend a bunch of money. This doesn't have all the bell and whistles, but who the heck needs all that.
Summary: I needed a new jig saw. I knew my 25 year old jig saw would not be capable of cutting the Brazilian hardwood we were using for our new deck. The jigsaw was necessary because of the semi-circular stairs my wife and I had decided would look neat coming off our deck.
Summary: The quality of this Jigsaw can't be beat at this price. Excellent power with a cast metal base that is flat and true. Just dont expect variable speed at the trigger. This saw has a seperate knob to vary speed. I have used Dewalt units and you just don't get that much more for your money.
Summary: I bought this jig saw to upgrade from the one I currently have which is a skil. No comparison. The Hitachi has a light that helps you see your line and the motor blows away the dust as you cut, great feature.
