Rated 5 out of 5 by As Good As It Gets, top marks here. This portable is as good as the corded version or better. It shows a lot of design effort; hefts a really good weight; does not break every darn blade and cutting and visibility is the best. Blade changing a snap; and you can really direct and perfect a cut in any position and material. November 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid jigsaw This jigsaw is great, a bit heavy, but the last jigsaw I will ever have to buy, since it has Ridgid's lifetime warranty. Speed is controlled by the pressure placed on the trigger and it stops instantly when trigger is released. Other than it being a bit heavy the only other downside I have with this jigsaw is the safety trigger which most power tools companies are putting on tools nowadays.. November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like the angled handle I found it easy to handle with plenty of power. The power seemed to last an extremely long time for my project. I also like the angled handle, it made lowering my arm more comfortable while scrolling. This has become my go to tool for all of my scrolling projects. I do a lot wood working with my grandson (5 years old) even though it is a little heavy for him he still wants to use it all the time, he thinks its fun. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to use :-) Good product all around! Great tool for for the right job. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent saw to add to your collection of Rigid tools Just one of my 5 Rigid cordless power tools that are part of Rigid collection. Would recommend all the Rigid cordless tools to anyone.... I use them as a avid home renovator but no several individuals who are in the trades and they would own nothing else. Have had one battery replaced in 5 years with no hassle.... The power tools to keep in your toolbox... November 24, 2014

Any plans to add an LED light to the next incarnation of this tool? Just about every tool on the market now has a guide LED, so I was surprised to see this one does not. I was looking to purchase the 18V Ridgid tools and was intrigued by the jigsaw availability, as I use one very often, but I may look elsewhere for this reason alone.

Answer: 
I have an led light on my electric circular saw and I personally find it an interesting gimmick but nothing beats a sharp pencil and a good square.

I have found the led or laser lights tend not give you as straight a cut as the simple pencil and square as mentioned above...

Love my Rigid jigsaw....
