So far, it's been good.

"I'm on the sixth tank of gas, so consider this an early review. I'm using the saw to clear brush, so it is a combination of felling (<6" diameters), limbing, bucking, and cutting through bushes. The saw is performing as expected, considering it is homeowner grade. It is a model 240 and you can go to the Husqvarna website to read about it.
When I follow the starting directions exactly, the saw has always started. The saw I got did NOT have tool less chain adjustment, which I'm OK with as it is one less thing to break. One thing to note, though, is that the bar oil runs out before the gas tank goes empty. I didn't catch this at first and had some trouble using a dry chain. I'm going to try a different bar oil and see if that makes a difference.
I like this saw, it has a good feel to it, and I look forward to using it."
