the cutting power, light,ergonomics are good. The soft start is very useful if you are running several tools at one time. You will not trip a circuit. However I gave it just two stars because the saw died after 4 years of light use and it was very expensive. I am currently in the middle of a large project and I must buy a new saw. I will not purchase another craftman jig saw.
