From the Manufacturer

Black & Decker’s Smart Select JS660 jigsaw takes the guesswork out of making the right jigsaw cut. With the new Smart Select cut feature you set the jigsaw for optimal cutting. A range of visual application icons illustrates where to set the jigsaw for curved, straight, or beveled cuts in wood, plastic, or metal. Each icon indicates a speed setting on the variable speed dial which when set, provides the best cutting performance and finish for the application. The separate variable speed dial also offers individual speed control for custom applications. An easy to set accu-bevel with vision window allows you to set the jigsaw at 0, 15, 30, 45 degrees, or left or right quickly and precisely for the most accurate beveled cuts. The jigsaw’s quick clamp tool free blade change offers easy blade changes for both U-shank and T-shank blades. Blades are quickly and easily inserted or removed from the saw with a spring-activated lever--no screwdriver or Allen wrenches required. This powerful 5 amp jigsaw provides 0-3200 strokes per minute. It also features a dust blower and extraction tube, a tool-free beveling shoe, and on-board blade storage. With Smart Select, you set it and forget it. Both experienced and beginning do-it-yourselfers will appreciate knowing and learning the best performance setting for their projects. With easy-to-read application icons, it helps eliminate the trial and error of cutting and ruining your material.

I've use this for a week doing tons of home improvement projects. It won't be used that often once everything's done, so I wanted a decent quality saw at the lowest price possible. I believe ratings should not compare cadillacs to neon's even though they're both cars. This mid-low priced jigsaw has cut holes in 1/2" pine wood like butter...get the right blades for every tool/project! At this time the saw only came with a metal cutting blade so spent a couple bucks on a good wood blade. It's also cut 3" PVC pipe (while rotating it). I'm a home DIY'er so maybe all jigsaw's only cut to a 3/4" depth, but I do wish they'd cut deeper, seems a waste of blade length. I cut the legs off some too-high bar stools by holding the stool with a knee and chest. Likely improper, but it buzzed through the legs on the straight line. Since I'm not a pro, I do not try to rush cuts and maybe that's the difference in cutting a straight line with this jig.

Of course on softer drop ceiling tiles it was a dream. They've always fit too tight and chipped away at a bunch of things with a razor knife before buying this jig, what a difference that made! I've done more jobs and you don't have to select a speed for the job obviously. If you want higher speed and the picture suggests lower, just turn up the dial anyway. It's also very comfortable in my hand. There shouldn't be many home improvement projects for the average person that this jig can't handle imo. The strokes per minute range is 800-3,000 which has been plenty of power that's spared my arm manually sawing, and within it's class of jigsaws, I give it 5 stars.

I have used mine a lot over the past two years for guitar building,
making straight and curved cuts in many kinds of wood.
- gets the job done
- handy compartment for blades
- reliable (for me, at least)
- base angle setting adjustment is crude
- smart select dial is confusing
I see lots of complaints about this saw being unable to cut straight.
This problem will depend a lot on wood type, thickness,
whether going across or with the grain, technique, sharpness of your
blade, and whether trying to follow a curved or straight line. If you
have a not-so-sharp blade and try to push the saw harder than it
likes along the grain on thick or hard wood, it will be hard to
control the cut. The 'smart select' dial is confusing because,
from the pictures printed on the saw itself, it's often hard to
know what setting to use.

I am so happy that I chose this jigsaw I'm a beginner and as a woman it was very easy to control. My first cut out was easy but not perfect, I made a J, it had straight and curves. The shipment came in less than a day after I bought it. Highly impressed with shipping. I have already recommended this jigsaw to friends. Not bulk and pretty okay in weight.

I have read the many reviews on here about this saw, I myself am impressed with this saw it does have a slight bit of blade drift for say a few degrees, just like anything learn the tool then you can cut straight or straight enough!!!! If it is precision you need then use a skill saw or mitre saw, jig saws are intended for shorter cuts and scrolling cuts not acurate straight long cuts.
With that all said I realize that you can spend the money and get one that will cut almost straight and perfect just like anything else. For 40 dollars people are too picky I cross cut a 2 X 4 in half and the cut was perfect vertically and was able to cut straight with it so i know that on 3/4 boards it would do even better!!!I used a real good quality bosch blade. To sum it all up I think it is a great little jig saw and seem to be well built ((remember black and decker is associated with dewalt)) so it cant be that bad.

Purchase this saw with the suggested Black & Decker 75-626 assorted blades.

First, if you want a straight cut this is not the saw for you.
My project consisted of cutting a few 2x4 to make a frame. Using this saw I found out that you need to cut at a very slow speed to kind of get a straight cut but if you push a little hard the wood will be around 1/4 longer on the under side because the blade seems to flare out as you cut.
Also, you need to keep the saw kind of pointed a little to the left as you cut because if you try to cut with the saw pointed straight with the line, the saw cut tends to go to the right.

When tying to cut metal using the suggested Black & Decker 75-626 blades, it was impossible to cut because as soon as I put a little pressure forward the blade with fly out of the saw. Tried several times making sure the blade was installed in the saw correctly. I also moved forward super slow and it didn't make a difference.
The saw comes with 1 T-shank style blade so I ended up returning the Black & Decker blades and purchased the Bosch T5002 10-Piece T-Shank blades.
As soon as I received the new blades I tried cutting the same metal material and didn't have a problem with the blades flying out of the saw; the blades seem to stay in place.
I would suggest buying only the T-Shank style blades for this saw.

I thought about returning the saw and getting something better but I will keep it because I basically use it instead of my hand-saw and it is not very expensive.
If I needed a saw for precise cuts I would definitely get something better.

You get what you pay for :-)

BTW - Amazon was great and very helpful when I called to return the blades. They also asked if I wanted to return the saw but I think I'll keep it.
