Excellent Jig Saw
Very good jig saw. Once you release the trigger, it stops immediately. Four different orbital settings from none to strong totally serve the needs from cutting fast to circular. Blade change is super quick and I love the LED indicating safety on or off (as long as it lights, you can cut - when it is off, the saw will not react to the trigger). Great tool, expensive but fully worth it.

As good as a jig saw gets
I would take this jig saw over the newest Festool (which I own) or any other. And I own every brand made. (I own a finish carpentry business)

Very good
It is my first professional Jigsaw (have had semi ones), so cannot really compare to parallel saws, but I am simply very happy from the results.
The cutting is smooth and accurate, and the fact you can choose the speed is very good for different material uses

As good as the best...
I have used the Bosch corded jigsaw for years and put off buying a cordless only because of the price tag. I finally found the right combination of price and available budget, and ordered this saw. This jigsaw has a couple little idiosyncrasies that, once you get used to them, aren't a problem. The slow start seems strange at first, but once you get used to it, the advantage is that you can start a cut more accurately. I like that you only have to touch the "lock" button rather than holding it down to operate the saw, and the light coming on with that touch is great. The tool free blade change is fantastic, I hope the plastic holds up. The shoe cover and splinter guard being included was a nice bonus. Above all else, it's nice to not have to run the cord...I'm now totally cord free for my hand tools on the job. Next up will be the miter saw I guess!

Decent but not exceptional
Overall solid tool which will do the job for a long time. It does not seem anywhere near as smooth as the corded Bosch I used before and the slow idle feature is terrible. (The tool runs at low speed until a significant load is created by contact between the blade and workpiece. Must be to save battery. Ill conceived idea to sacrifice initial control for a few minutes of runtime. ).
