I do have the barrel version and can only parrot what everybody else has said. I use it for a lot more uses than I ever thought I would. Wouldn't give a thought to breaking down sheet goods with my B&D but this Bosch has basically replaced the skil saw for that.
Also use the Bosch blades. They are as good as the saw with ground teeth and also being made in Switzerland. I just skim cut some 2X6 ends that I errantly cut a smidge long after rigging up a guide for a track. The cut was as smooth as a baby's backside. I was shocked. The pic doesn't do it justice. The thickness I took off was right at a blade thickness.
