I have been interested in this saw since it was released last year. My father bought one and allowed me to unbox it and try it out.

1. Light weight
2.. Quiet in comparison to my gas powered saw
3. Sturdy
4. Good for homeowner use
5. Nice color
6. Soft comfortable grip
7. Trigger safety
8. Long battery life so far

1. Poor wood chip ejection
2. Plastic Bumper spikes that are minimal
3. Large plastic cap for chain oil limiting amount of oil and causing spill over if not very careful
4. Expensive

Overall first impressions: Good for the homeowner, not a professional grade saw!

If you would like to see the video that I made about the chainsaw check out the link below.

A ‘first impression’ review posted as video only, without any summary text?
1) waste of time to post on LJ as review, should post as video.
2) Blatant advertising to get more followers and hits on your tube channel
3) Guarantees I will never watch the video.
Best luck on your promotion efforts!

Your points were well taken!

I have updated my post to be more inclusive.

The video is not necessary to gain the information I intended to provide.

Why so QUICKLY to vilify him…?
Here is what I got out of this and have been following with our
Milwaukee, DeWalt, Makita, and Harbour Freight companies.
They got “BATTERIES” now just add them to a product to sell…
Hence, this review. Personally, I jumped on board with my 18 volt Milwaukee batteries to:
-power blower
Now I am waiting for Tesla motors to enter “woodworking”

As a matter of preference, I do not care for reviews or blogs which just say “Watch my video” and nothing else.

I do not watch them at all. Maybe some like them but not me.

Also, I could care less for unboxing reviews and would rather see a review of how well it worked after a period of use.

Not vilifying anyone but just my preferences.

Wow. Being able to unbox an item is review worthy? Color? Who cares? Pretty meaningless review.

1. Light weight (what does it weigh?)
2.. Quiet in comparison to my gas powered saw (Duh, it’s electric)
3. Sturdy (did you throw it off a cliff to judge this?)
4. Good for homeowner use (OK, but so is my gas saw)
5. Nice color (?)
6. Soft comfortable grip
7. Trigger safety (how so? Most of my tools have a safety trigger)
8. Long battery life so far (how long? 5 minutes? a year?)

The problem with almost all of the reviews here on LJ (including some of my own) is that the main concern, namely performance is left out because the item has just been purchased. On the other hand, if you wait until you have used the item a year or two it is very possible the item has been replaced by a new model. So it seems that the pros and cons are probably the most useful info from them. Especially the cons.
