can anyone vouch for makita js1600 metal shear

Makita Shear Model JS1600JS1600

I saw a video of a guy using them and they seemed awesome, but I only saw him cutting a piece off a sheet. I'm wondering how well it would work to cut off a quarter and get your final cut right off the bat. Seems to be better than those scissor type power shears which only cut straight. This one actually cuts accurately around corners and bends, or so it seems. Just wondering if what I saw was for real and if someone can vouch for this shear or similar ones like it. Found one on ebay for $100!!!
