Solid saw, decent price
I bought this a few weeks ago, as a combo with a 18pc blade set. So far, has worked exactly as intended, cuts clean and accurate. It feels solid and well made, time will tell how durable it actually is. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is the lack of a vacuum port, and the allen key bevel lock. Neither one is a huge deal. The blower does a good job clearing the cut line, so unless you're working somewhere super clean, the dust port isn't critical. As for the bevel, 99% of the cuts I will make will be 90 degrees, so trading convenience for a simple, solid bevel lock is fine by me (It does have notches to make it easy to set to 90/45) All in all, a solid saw, and a competitive price. For what I paid, and with the blade set, it was too good of a deal to pass up

Easy blade install/replace
My wife bought me this saw as a present. I have no other Bosch tools. I love this saw. Easy to use and cuts anything. I will seriously consider Bosch when my next tool purchase comes up.

Good shtuff!
Been using Bosch jigsaws daily for several years and though they won't last forever, it's by far the best jigsaw out there in my opinion!

Not Square
Had the saw less than a year and have used it a good bit building Adirondack chairs from pressure treated 1x materials. Cuts well and handles smooth but to save my life I cannot get the blade square to the sole plate. This causes the cut to be at an angle, not 90 degrees. I have tried numerous Bosch blades and also to resquare the saw to no avail. Makes scroll cuts look horrible.

Broken blade within housing
I purchased the saw a year ago to cut both wood and metal. I like the saw and also selected it for the speed thay one might attach a blade to the saw. However, when cutting a metal sheet on an angle the blade broke within the housing and there appears no way to remove the broken component so that I might use the saw again. This is a significant design flaw as I see others have reported the same problem. I also note that it could be rectified buy allowing this component to be opened or it being able to be detach and replaced, which may increase the cost of the device by a few dollars but this would make the saw more resilient.

Same part broke twice
Purchased this tool a few years ago using it only a few times per year. Tool was never abused. On a recent use the keyless chuck holding the blade broke. Replacement part cost $40 so I went ahead with the purchase. The replacement part broke on second use. Such an important part should not be made of plastic.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
