Bottom line: For around the yard/home owner type of gig, this saw is great! Its light, easy to use, low noise, low oil use, smoke free and quite sturdy and powerful. I would absolutely recommend it!
If I had to criticize it I would say two things: The bar seems a bit thin, rather delicate, I think that might be a potential weakness if you are not careful and gentle. Also, the trigger does not have variable speed- its ether 100% power or off. I don't think that is an issue really, just thought that it would be nice to have some more control and less speed for the small stuff.
UPDATE: Holy hell their support is awful. They want me to drive this thing and hour and a half to a service center that wants me to pay them a deposit to repair the chainsaw under warranty. Definitely avoiding Black and Decker from now on
If you're working within range of an outlet, electric is the way to go (over gas); saw is quiet until you fire it up to cut as opposed to constant noise of a running gas engine, not to mention avoiding starting problems of a gas engine or the need to prep gas/oil mixtures; comes with a plastic bar/chain cover; much lighter than a gas chainsaw which makes it easier for the average homeowner to handle; used with a 100-ft extension cord with no power drop-off issues.
Should come with some kind of a "cord cage" to keep the saw from unplugging from the extension cord, although I didn't really have a problem with it coming unplugged other than a few times when I stepped on my extension cord. This is the reason I knocked off 1-star, because a plastic cord cage would likely have cost B&D less than a dollar to include.
Oregon 18-in Replacement Saw Chains (S62 or S62T); available at my local hardware store (both Lowes and Home Depot), also available on Amazon and at a cheaper price ... about $30 for a package of 2 chains. I would recommend you order a set of these chains at the same time you order your saw, because you're bound to eventually dull your chain and its easier to just put in a new one than mess around with buying/using a sharpener.
USE NOTE: I did some horizontal cutting of a larger hardwood (ash) stump near ground level and kind of gunked up the chain guide on the bar with sawdust and possibly dirt, causing a kind of squeal when the blade brake engaged - to fix, I just had to remove the chain and clean out the guide groove and brush off the chain guides. Its probably my own fault for not occasionally removing the saw and running in vertical position to allow better lubrication of the chain; also possible that I got too low and picked up some dirt (which also quickly dulls the chain).

I used it for cutting a large cedar bush (diameter approx. 1 feet at the base) and couple of more trees diameter of around 4-6 inches. I was able to get rid of the trees and bushes. I was an effort to cut the cedar due to hard wood and the fact that i was cutting it from almost near the ground. The chainsaw worked fine. Couple of times chain got loose and then i had to put it back, but i guess it was more because of the way i used it than the fault of the chainsaw. Overall happy with the purchase.
I knew absolutely nothing about chainsaws, and had never touched one, prior. However, when a large maple tree fell on my property, I started researching, looking for something effective, safe, easy to use and, this being a tool for (very) occasional usage, budget was a big consideration.
In short, it was everything my research had suggested; it made fast and easy work out of my maple tree. For the homeowner who, like me, will have occasional need for a chainsaw, I would not hesitate to recommend this product.
