John, Seasoned DIYer

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Comes out of the box ready to use
Bad points:
First job was trimming some pine, forgot to remove some staples. My old saw would have zipped thorugh these, this saw was skewed off center ruining the cut. Limited space so the overall dimensions of this product are too large when in operation. Unsure of build quality but it seems to 'feel' wrong.

Confirmed purchaser DIY guy for 40+years

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Basic but powerful - it does what it says on the tin. For occasional sawing operations to doors, panels etc. this is an ideal budget power tool at a good price.
Bad points:
No carry case - you will need to save the box!

Bad points:
Used it once and it went bang with a puff of smoke - it was only very thin plywood which was being used. Have had a replacement and I'll see how we go with it.
