Plenty of power, has a nice feel to it (though a little heavy for some).
It's a Husky! That means a lot from starting the saw to refueling and adding oil. Made with attention to what would be most convenient to the user (well, for the most part anyway).
Chain tends to come off more often than with other models.
B&C Oiling may be an issue, especially with longer bars & chains.
Not a bad all 'round chainsaw; being a Husqvarna will pretty much guarantee that for you. It has plenty of power if weight isn't really an issue for you. My "Biggest" problem has been keeping the chain on. Once it comes off, it seems more difficult to put back on than others (in part, this "may" be due to a couple of drivers that became damaged on mine and I believe their width increased slightly). Also, the saw seems to gather debris and sort of get "backed-up" easier than some of the other models. The oiling is a rough spot for some on the 455, perhaps having to do with the excess debris that sometime accumulates. Of course taking the time to clean it more often is not a bad idea. Mine runs about 2 tanks of gas to 1 tank of B&C oil and that's with it adjusted to maximum pump rate for the oil.
