I have both, what are you trying to do? Each has different uses. I've only used a roto-zip for drywall. Control is all about direction. You have to cut everything in a counter clockwise direction with a roto-zip. If you go the other way, it will take off on you. Oscillating saws are great for plunge cutting and tight places like the bottom of door jambs or cutting up against the toe kick of a cabinet.
I use the heck out of mine. Zipping off flat tight spots its the only tool I reach for. Even cutting outlut boxes in drywall. I've been using it quite a nit this summer cutting nails off behind floor joists if I need to move one. Slick tool! Jim
I have a cordless Dewalt. Same battery runs my drill and my oscillating saw.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.
Horses for courses. Ya wouldn't go logging with an oscillating saw and ya would not break out a Stihl 661 if you need to cut a door frame to get your lamitate floor shoved under it. It all depends what ya want to do. each has their place.

I do all my own stunts ... but never intentionally ... Let's go Brandon
"Shall not comply" with morons who don't understand "shall not infringe."
Just bought a FLEX oscillating saw & 1\2" hammer drill in a promotion for the new brand. 24 volts. Supposed to be high end. Made by Skill. Got five batteries in the promotion five-year warranty, even on batteries. One 5amh and four 2.5 amh. Bag and carrying case, three extra blades for saw. Two chargers. $386. Thought it was a good deal. Used both a little so far. Appear to be high quality as advertised.
