Pros: comfortable, keyless blade clamp makes switching blades a snap
Cons: serious lack of power, lack of precision blades
Summary: Having recently bought our first house - and since that house needs a bit of, well, attention - there are any number of minor tasks for which I need a saw. One of my in-laws gave me the Navigator when we moved in, and raved about its versatility - ... read more

Pros: Great motorized replacement for a hand saw or hack saw
Cons: Most jobs are not suited to a motorized hand saw or hack saw
Summary: The Navigator is kind of like a cross between a jig saw and a reciprocating saw. In fact, you can get accessory blades and rotate their mount so you can use the unit like either of those tools. But it isn't a perfect combination of a jig saw and a ... read more

Pros: The Black & Decker Navigator Hand Saw/Jig Saw provides two electric saws in one package.
Cons: The blades are too difficult to insert into the handle.
Summary: I wanted this item so much because of the possible versatility - electric hand saw and jig saw in one product. I do a lot of carpentry and am running out of room to store power tools. This tool was a Christmas gift to myself, but I have yet to figure ... read more

Cons: Performance was very poor at best.
Summary: The ergonomics were poor. The trigger must be squeezed constantly unlike many jigsaws with a constant on switch. The trigger locks were in awkward locations and almost always required two hands to start the saw. The guide shoe is plastic and is too ... read more
