Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IMDavid Individual Tool Difference
As pointed out by another..... the circular saw and reciprocating saw are not the same quality, as sold individually, in this particular combo. However this is not always the case and other stores do offer the better (more features) tools included in the combo, albeit at a higher price.
This is a great deal if the better featured saws are not required!

This product is not made in America (USA) with global materials. I am returning and purchasing the 4 piece kit made in America.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rangervall Great set of tools
I came home from Christmas vacation with a flooded basement. We had to rip out walls and rebuild. These tools were a Christmas gift from my wife, and my old Ryobi tools couldn't handle the job. My only issue is that the sawzaw isn't adjustable. Other than that this set is great for the do it yourselfer. I have had Craftsman, Ryobi, and a few other sets of cordless tools in the past, but now I'm sold on everything DeWalt.

The only assembly on this kit was the circular saw needed the blade installed which was a no brain er and the drill handle if you use it. I like the fact you can check the battery power by pressing the check button on the back of the battery to see what the charge is at and these tools are a very robust and last a long time. The drill may be a bit heavier than the compact one however this one is more powerful than most ones I had in the past. Would have been nice if they included a cordless cut off saw or hand held grinder. I had to purchase one separately. I would not hesitate to spend a little bit more to get a great tool.

Milwaukee batteries last far longer.
My contractor laughed at my frequent trips back to the charging station.
I was terribly embarrassed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lonnie The impact driver is great.
The 36 volt dewalt sawzal and skill saw is hands down a much better match for a contractor. The 20 volt skill saw does not match the powerful 36 volt. Nor does it have a tool less reliece for the blade. The 20 volt one drains the battery way to fast. And I think it's just as heavy. The 20 volt sawzall has the power and longevity I like in a battery. And operates well. But the 36 volt one has more options with blade positioning and makes the 36 volt sawzall much nicer for tight places and funny angles. Overall I'm disappointed in the extra 10 years of technology the 20 volt saws have, verses the 10 year old awesome 36 volt saws. Looking back now I would much rather pay a few more dollars and get the 36 volt set again. Although the rest of the tool set is great. I love the impact driver and the drill. I do wish the light came with a hook to hook on my belt. But other than that its great too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DylanM Buyer Beware! Items included may not be what you think they are!
As far as the 20v Max system goes, I am totally 100% satisfied. I currently have a kit comprised of a half dozen tools using this platform, and I couldn't be happier with the performance of it all.
Now, talking about this specific kit-
Hammer Drill- Great, 5 stars. Packs a ton of power, punches through concrete like butter.
Impact Driver- Also phenomenal. This was my first Impact driver, and I can not understand how I ever lived without one
Light- It's a light. It works. The swivel on it is decent, although I wish it pointed downwards more. Also, the beam lacks any focus capability.
Reciprocating Saw- Garbage. Totally stopped working after one use. Please note- this is NOT the same tool that you would get when purchasing separately!!! This saw lacks the 4 way blade clamp and does not work nearly as well as the other model. The saw in this package is model DCS381, while the standalone unit is model DCS380. Big difference in performance and features.
Circular Saw- Also completely different than the standalone model! (DCS393 vs. DCS391) Big difference here is that the model in this package comes with a stamped metal foot and poor quality adjustment parts, where the standalone unit uses a nice magnesium base and higher quality parts.
I understand why companies take cost cutting measures like this, but it is unfair to the customer to not be more upfront about the difference in quality they are getting.
All in all, I am happy with the 20v MAX set I currently have, but was pretty upset upon learning that the tools I bought were not what I thought they were. Needless to say, I returned this set and went elsewhere to purchase the tools individually.
