7-Speed Orbital Jigsaw - 6 A is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best value for the money I had a lower end unit that I had to force through the cut and stopped wanting to use the tool. It finally went up in smoke and I looked for a replacement. This one doesn't have all the bells and whistles but has a nice blower to keep the dust out of the way. Cuts like a scalpel with no force. I bought this and some bosch blades for less than another high amp comparable tool by far. I am now using it for many things and am very pleased with its design and how sturdy it is. Stays in place while turning without putting my arm to sleep and jumping like a jackhammer. It is a very good tool and I am happy to get a powerful one for half the price of its equivalent competition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw but I wish the blade holder was stronger I bought this to replace my old saw and I wanted an orbital saw at a good price. Bought this on sale and it was a good deal. Saws great and the orbital adjustment is simple to use. I also like the variable maximum speed dial. This is nice for cutting different types of materials of varying thickness. The only thing I would change is to make the blade holder to have a firmer lock up with the blade. When trying to cut a modest radius the blade kept popping out of the holder. My old saw used a screw to lock the blade in place. But it is nice that the blade holder is essentially universal accepting both T and U type blades.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mine won't cut vertically Nice saw, cuts well and the speed control is reasonable. However, I find I cannot use it for any but the roughest projects because the blade will not maintain a 90-degree angle to the work. I have carefully set and reset the sole plate, used it with and without the plastic shoe, and bought and tried every premium blade on the market. It doesn't matter if the reciprocating function is used or not...the blade measures square to the sole plate at rest, and then cuts at an angle no matter the blade speed, feed rate, or thickness or type of wood. Too late to return it, this one's going on Craigslist soonest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a bad occasional use jigsaw, not great. I purchased this Porter Cable jigsaw as I was attempting to save a little money. I do a lot of woodworking and it appeared to have all the basic features I was looking for. Brought it home, put a brand new Bosch blade in it and starting cutting. Cutting was ok but not great. Out of the box the bottom shoe was not at 90 degrees so had to manually adjust it. The shoe has presets for 90 and 45, but there is so much play in it, you just have to get close and lock it down with the set screw. If you're buying this for 90 degree cuts only, you'll probably be fine just knowing you'll have to manually find 90 and lock it in a don't touch it. I took it back and paid another $40 ($99) for the Bosch JS365.... right out of the box it was a perfect 90... good start.... put same blade in it as previous and for some reason it cut way smoother than the Porter Cable. The Bosch ran much smoother, included a case, protective boot for shoe, and the ability to add a cutting guide to it as an accessory (not included). If you're leaving it on 90 and only using occasionally go for it you won't be disappointed, if you're a heavier user, upgrade to the Bosch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light Trigger This is a very good value for the occasional use that I'll give it. I'm cutting out some new top rails for my deck railing and it's doing a very good job cutting out the concave ends of the 2x6s that fit around the round logs. I do have one complaint though. The trigger pull required to activate the saw is very light and, there being no trigger guard, it is dangerously easy to activate the motor whenever I pick the unit up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Porter Cable 6 amp VS Electric Jigsaw A very nice power hand tool. The variable speed allows for smoother cuts and less chipping. The 6 amps gives it the necessary power to cut the hardwoods. Light weight and is very easy to operate. The keyless chuck feature makes it a snap to replace blades.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't hold the blade parellel to the base edge. The tool seemed like a good value and had a nice list of features, but the quality is not where it should be. When the blade is fully seated in the chuck it is not parallel to the edge of the base. This makes it impossible to cut a straight line when trying to use a rip fence to guide the cut. The blue line in the photo is parallel to the base edge and the red line is parallel to the edge of the blade. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my battery operated unit look bad Was cutting a speaker hole in my boat, there was a fraction of an inch fiberglass coating over a 1 inch board, my battery operated saw barely made it through one hole and burned up 2 blades in the process. When I recharged the battery and tried cutting the second hole it burned up another blade. Both holes were extremely difficult to cut with my battery operated unit. I cursed a bit and broke down and went to Lowe's. After looking at the jig saws ranging from $49 to $200 dollars I decided, what the heck, this had the same RPM's as the $200 units. Porter Cable is a well known product, so I bought it. And some more new blades. It cut through the wood and fiberglass almost like butter. Moral of the story is, if you have to make a difficult cut, use electric. This unit so far has been an excellent buy for me. Just bought it last week, but I am very happy so far, hope it will continue to stay that way.
