Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CollectorTexas Best all in 1!
Bought this as a "present" for my husband and by far the best purchase I have made for him. Well really us. I had been wanting boxes for collectables and I now have a beautiful collections of boxes and shelves for all of my collectables(AKA Tsum Tsum). He had it running and figured out in just a few minutes and was making me boxes very quickly. So glad we discovered Ryobi and this product. So easy to use I can use it! I just can't clear a jam. Well worth the money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AAA1221 Awesome Purchase
Bought this to remodel my half bath. First time ever using a bradnailer and it worked great. Was able to put chair rail, wainscotting, baseboards and crownmolding like a pro :-) Its light and easy to use. The battery life is really impressive as well. Would highly recomend it to anyone

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bookworm Minor not major
This product was great but it should only be used for small projects not larger ones. I had mine and maybe used it for 13 hours before something went wrong with the firing pin so now I have to dry fire it several times until it makes the noise that it can shoot a nail once again. I also can no longer close the hatch that holds the nails because I can only fire one nail before I have to open it and take it apart again. Been a long time user of Ryobi (15 years) and just felt very unsatisfied with the end results of this nailer. Will not be getting it again. It's also why I didn't bother to take my original back because I don't want it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlexD Well performed Ryobi nailer
I just bought another Ryobi 18 gauge nailer, because I just gave my old one that I bought 3 years ago when it first came out, to my friend. That old one is still working fine after 3 years.
This nailer is light, easy to handle, reliable, accurate, and gives me no problem at all for 3 years straight.
Too bad Ryobi does not plan to come out with a frame nailer. Most of my tools are Ryobi, and I have to buy the DeWalt battery operated frame nailer.
Too bad I have to buy from Homedepot, and not elsewhere, since its customer service at the stores, are terrible and just got worse, and ordering is messed up every time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ML Excellent nail gun
When borrowing tools becomes burdensome, it's time to get your own. While this gun, along with a separate purchase of the battery and charger, will out you out about much as a Porter and Cable compressor and complete gun set when on sale, it's much easier to use and takes up less storage space when not in use. There is a little more hesitation when firing vs a pneumatic gun but it didn't take long to get past that. It will tend to jam if the pressure isn't high enough, so test the adjustments and practice before using on a real project. Factory settings should be close enough to what you need. I plan on getting the 16 gauge and the stapler as soon as they are needed for a project.

Been doing a few projects around the house and I totally love this! Easy to use and works as advertised.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by On2ndThought Does the job
I have only used the brad nailer a couple times, but it cleanly drives the two inch brads fully into the board. Easy to adjust depth of nail and power of drive. Very little surface damage to the wood to clean up later. Much easier than dragging out the compressor and oiling up the pneumatic nailer for smaller jobs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MM Good attempt but falls short of expectations
I really wanted to like this cordless nailer. I have a ton of 18V Ryobi tools so adding another without worrying about chargers or battery packs was a plus for me. With that said, the cordless nailer can accomplish what I need, but it definitely has it's shortcomings. The biggest issue for me is the lag between pulling the trigger and actually shooting a nail. It's almost like it has a little capacitor that has to fill up and then release before it fires. This was not effective for nailing the tongue n groove porch boards I was replacing. I'm used to applying pressure and then shooting a nail with an air kit; but this is more like apply pressure, pull trigger, hold steady, nail. I also felt like the safety tip was a little too safe as I had several times I felt like it was compressed but would not fire. The other obvious issue I was willing to overlook is the bulk of the gun. It's a bit bigger both width and depth than a standard air gun.
Overall I think it's a good attempt to keep someone from buying a pancake compressor, hose and air gun, but I'm taking mine back as I already have the guns and air hose, but my compressor went to poo. If someone was starting fresh and didn't have experience with finish nailers, this could fulfill their need.
