Rated 3 out of 5Â by Joe567 Great little side kick driver/drill
I bought replace an old Ryobi 6v drill. I've had this about a year and I am pleased. I chose this drill because I trust the Ryobi brand and I wanted the smallest drill I could find. It gets into the small places my big 18v drill cannot. This little drill is great to have around for driving screws without swapping bits out of my other drill.
The down sides are; it comes with only one battery, and the charger doesn't indicate when the charge is complete. If you need something tiny, this is it, otherwise the new Ryobi 12V One+ is a better option.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Warren98 Can drill two 1"x2" holes only after each recharge
I bought this drill Friday night and I had to charge the battery overnight. I used it Saturday morning to drill holes of 1 inch in diameter and 2 inches deep out of a softwood. I sucessfully drilled two holes, but I needed to recharge the battery before I can continue drilling the third hole. I sucessfully drilled five holes in two days. Finally, I gave up, refunded it, and bought a corded drill of the same brand which is $2 more expensive. The corded drill is much better that this cordless one.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Scooter14 Great drill for the price!!
We bought the drill to construct some shelving in a bedroom closet. Perfect for that project. Then we wrecked a glass shower door and needed to drill new holes in the tile for a rod. Once again, performed flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Butch A good drill for many home needs.
This is a great drill for around the house. I would reccomend it highly. Very compact and light weight compared to another one I have. However I find myself using this one a lot more. I re-did my deck this past summer and needed my other 20 volt to drive in the long deck screws. This one would not have done the job. Common sense is the key, again this light weight takes care of most home needs that are not heavy duty. It runs very well.
