Two things to note: First, the few Fein attachments that i have work with Bosch, but not the other way around. Second, the Bosch uses the old-school hex-wrench approach to blade attachment, which may be important consideration in a production environment. (Like the Fein, P-C has a quick-release system in their new MFOT released in 2011, but the blade selection was minimal when i looked into it. The one minor complaint i have with this Bosch is that when you're cutting sheet goods where you run the multitool roughly parallel with the stock, the frequent bumps and rubs unscrew the blade bolt. Minor pain. I would much rather have had this with a quick-release blade system. If you're considering the Fein, there are a lot of Fein/Bosch comparisons and reviews on the Internet. I'm completely satisfied with the Bosch. b.t.w., the plastic box it comes in is well-designed and useful, which really surprised me). If it had quick-release, this tool would be perfect.
update: i'm rapidly becoming a fan of Imperial and Oshlun blades. I haven't had a bad one yet in remodeling - hardwood, softwood, ABS, PVC, drywall, trim, particle board, nails & screws are all cut easily *if* you use the right blades. Imperial has a wider selection of OIS-12 compatible blades than Oshlun, but both perform well - at least as well for me as the Bosch OEM - and Imperial and Oshlun are less expensive (Oshlun seems to be a bit less money than Imperial, f.y.i.). You might consider this option. Both are available on Amazon. (I've also used Versa, but have found they don't hold up as well for me as Imperial and Oshlun or Bosch for that matter.)
update2: I've used this Bosch on several large remodeling projects so far. The more I use it the more I like it!
It is true that the blades don't last a long time, however when you take into account the difficult job the blade is performing you realize what a time saver the tool is.
Whether it is better or worse than the Fein Multimaster is debatable. The Fein upper models do have a quick blade change mechanism. If you use the tool every day in a production environment this could be beneficial, however most people only use a tool like this occasionally so blade changes don't really matter that much.
The plastic storage box is adequate in size for the tool and a large assortment of extra blades. Would I prefer a metal case? as a matter of fact I would if it were available.
For my money the Bosch is a better value and excellent quality.
The tool does have a weak spot. The bladeholder, which Bosch calls a toolholder (Bosch part number 2609110769, $6.25 plus shipping online from Bosch), is easily damaged. If the setscrew that holds the blade to the arbor comes loose, which it does easily, the vibrations with the loose blade will break the small mounting projections at the base. There are only 12 projections, and at some point there will be too few projections to hold the blade firmly. At this point, the blade holder can be removed from the arbor with a small puller. It would help also to use bearing splitter. It is an easy press fit. Installation is the reverse, with a soft-face hammer or puller. See my photos for explanation.
Recommendation: buy this tool, but be prepared to replace the blade holder.
