Black & Decker can be hit and miss, they sometimes sell use of their name to other manufacturers or distributors (often a combo of both),
So not all B&D are the same (usually OK-ish but sometimes utter crap).
OIOW name is only part of the story.

Others do it too, DeWalt, Stanley...

Usually in these cases the price is the warning, esp. if it looks to cheap for 'the name'

"that saw looks just like this one, same brand, but costs only 1/4 the price and even comes with 2 free blades, why??"
One's probably made in say China, the other in say USA / Germany / UK (yes UK make good tools too, just not many these days. Not just China, many German brands cheap lines often ex Poland (not as bad, China is definitely the king of crap but Poland / Hungary are Euro but they're not German quality.)

Simple version/summary.
Top quality is rarely on sale
Could it be mid range on special? After checking the price check the "Made in"
