Yesterday I was watching a recorded show, and when I
cut it off an infomercial for the blade runner was showing.
Since it was a tool I naturally had to check it out for
at least a few seconds. Well, then I saw the most
fantastic thing about it. It comes with a mount so that
you can mount it on the wall and use it there. What
really got me was the wall they showed it mounted to.
It was almost bare. Obviously not a real wall. At
least I have never had a garage/shop wall that didn't
have anything on or against it. There are work benches,
shelves, stuff hanging on the wall, stuff stacked
against the wall, you name it.
The saw may be a fine saw, but I think for my next
tool purchase I will get something else.
There's a 4 foot level and an orange extension cord mounted on the small
section of wall shown.
Some people are neater, or more obsessive, than others.
Me? I don't have room on my wall to hang a saw blade, much less a whole saw.
Is this the saw you saw, or sawed, or sawn? :-)

The consensus of the legitimate reviews is it is ok for small projects such
as bird houses, but not for large projects especially those involving wood
thicker than 1 inch. Also, Rockwell blades are not very good - you need to
buy some from other manufacturers.
Everything I've read/seen/heard is blatant infomercial hype. Isn't
there an aftermarket table to mount an upside down jigsaw, like for
routers? Shouldn't be too hard to make one. I love the nonsense
about "it mounts to your wall" and in the next breath, "can make long
rip cuts". Is that the wall with the hole in it? ;)
