Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 88 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by warning The worst drill i ever bought. the batteries last for only minutes, and they take 10+ hours to charge to get only minutes of service. They give you two batteries, so you will get enough time to screw maybe 12 2" screws into wood. Avoid this product at all costs. You have been warned. February 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I purchased this drill for light duty use around the home and office (i.e. attaching keyboard trays to desks etc) and there is more than enough power in a 12 V to get these types of jobs done! A perfect in between for the person who is not a professional but needs more than an electric screwdriver and at a good price also. August 16, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi Speed Drill A good small drill perfect for my son - so he won't always borrow mine now that he is a home owner. It came already charged and was in a small carrying case which was great. Made a great Christmas gift. My only issue was the delivery - they only tried once to deliver to our house and then we had to drive 30 minutes to pick it up. December 27, 2010

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy!! Horrible battery life and no power. I purchased this drill a few months a ago to replace and older one that had died. This drill is a huge dissapaapointment. This one won't tackle even the simplest of projects. i tried hanging a simple closet shelf...which consisted of three screws and had to charge the battery half way through. Two inch screws into a stud are too much for this drill. If you need to use a drill bit, forget it they don't lock in properly and pull out of the drill. Which is a ton of fun if it is half way into to a wall. i have owned several drills and this is by far the worst. January 4, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ok drill for very light duty It's ok for very light duty task around the house but that's really about it, more of an electric screw driver then a drill really, the battery dies quickly and takes to long to recharge, for $50 A cheap 18v from HF or an actual electric screw driver would be a much better deal. If you need an actual drill spend a little more and get an entry level 18v. This thing would be a good deal for $20 and that's about it January 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charge time wrong Literature with drill says 10 hrs charge time, not 60 min. Have you ever wondered how a Toyota Prius gets a 100K miles on a set of NiCD's and your drill seems to get only a few miles. The problem is the cheap chargers that they provide. These chargers do not turn off when the battery is fully charged which causes the battery to overheat and degrade. Buying an intelligent charger can save a battery and quickly pay for itself which is why I bought a smart charger for my 18V Ryobi batteries. Not only do they charge in 60 min but the batteries do not degrade. The moral of this is do not buy the NiCD version of this 12V drill for $49. but the $79. lithium version. It comes with the C120D smart charger, a $40. value. October 20, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wasted money I have never had a more useless power tool. Operates on full charge for only a few minutes. Had it for a long time before I used it or I would have returned to Home Depot. Can't believe Home Depot still sells it. They should discontinue. I contacted Ryobi and they had were no help, basically said we don't care.... Worse 50 bucks I ever spent. December 30, 2014
