Pros:
I bought this for occasional use. I needed a cordless unit and I didn't want to spend a lot.

Cons:
It has a lot of vibration. The full vibration of the mechanism is transmitted into your hand which holds the rear handle. You don't want to use this saw for more than a few minutes per session.
You should use gloves.

It broke on me after the 3rd or 4th time I used it. I pulled the trigger and the blade wouldn't move.
I took it apart and found the connecting rod was not attached to the blade mechanism. The little clip on top of the link pin had fallen off. The clip looked possibly damaged on top. I bought some new 6mm retaining rings (p/n 90967A110 from mcmaster.com) and managed to put one back on the link pin. My tool is now working again.

To see what I'm talking about, go to servicenet.blackanddecker.com and look at the Exploded Art assembly diagram. Zoom in on the middle assembly. Notice the sprocket with gear teeth on it.
A "dogbone" (connecting rod) connects the sprocket to the blade holder mechanism. This converts circular motion to vibratory motion. Notice the two link pins sticking out of the dogbone, one on each end. On my unit, the pin on the right side had the upper retaining ring fall off. This allowed the pin to slide down below the dogbone, making the unit fail to operate.

I didn't have external retaining ring pliers that were small enough to handle the new clips that I bought. You need pliers with 1mm tips, with no more than 0.5mm separation between the tips.
Instead, I inserted some small needle nose pliers into the small part of the clip. I was able to spread the clip apart enough to slip it on the link pin and get it into the groove. The link pin has to be held in place while you do this (requires 3 hands). See the attached photo of the 6mm retaining rings that I bought from mcmaster.

This is my first reciprocating saw, so I have nothing to compare it to. The saw comes with a wood blade, an instruction booklet and a product registration form.
I have a few tools in the Black and Decker 20V max family, so I have 4 20V batteries. I like the bare saw option.
The saw seems to be well constructed, feels solid in hands.
I bought it for two projects, building a raised vegetable garden, and trimming some low branches from trees in my backyard.
Now the first project is done. I used this saw to cut landscape timbers (3x4x8 in size), and had about 12 cuts. It had no issues; when used properly, the cut turned out clean and straight. The saw felt comfortable in my hands.
After the project, I also trimmed a branch (2 inches in diameter). No issues at all. I will trim several more next weekend.

I beat the heck out of this saw in the past month, trimming 5 trees and cutting up a large Leyland Cypress that was downed by heavy snow last month. I already had two batteries for it, and it works well with both the small and large one. For trimming a large Bradford Pear that is overwhelming everything nearby, I duck taped the saw to a 14' pole and used a rope to pull the trigger to trim higher branches - a bit heavy, but it worked very well. For the Leyland Cypress stump, I used the short blade that comes with it to cut the roots (through much dirt), and a longer blade I bought ($3 or so) to cut the stump into pieces I could carry. I haven't timed how long the batteries last, but my expectations have been exceeded. Love it!

I needed something lighter than other battery powered recip saws for work in the garden. My hands and strength are failing me. This is ideal for removing branches too large for loppers. Obviously the blade is too small for anything much larger than 2 inches, but just right for about 90% of my needs. Battery lasts longer than I do, maybe an hour of off and on use. Also have the 20V Max Lithium grass trimmer. Keeps me in the garden.

Please be more clear in the product description about whether a battery is included or not. I understand people who buy lots of tools know what the term "bare" means, but for those of us who buy tools infrequently, this means nothing. A simple line in the description stating, "this tool does not include a battery nor a charger," would be fine. It would also help tool-illiterate people like me to know why the price is so cheap.

I bought this saw specifically for some hardened bolts I needed to cut. These were bolts holding up steel targets. After a few hits from a high powered rifle, they weren't coming off any other way. The saw did a great job on the bolts, using a standard hacksaw blade. Those reviewers who said you can't use standard blades were mistaken.

Then Mother nature decided I wasn't getting enough exercise and dropped a tree in the yard. The saw came to the rescue. On one battery charge, I was able to cut off the limbs that were in the yard, and then cut them up into small enough pieces to haul off. One battery charge with power to spare.

This saw is the best purchase I've made this year. Last year I purchased a Black & Decker hedge trimmer. It uses the same batteries, and it was my best purchase last year. I have four tools that use the same batteries and they are all excellent products. Black & Decker can't be beat.
