Brought this drill because my apartment has cement walls. I wanted something simple to use to hang up pictures and shelves etc (without having to call my contractors every time). The bits (sold separately) are not the easiest to insert in and out of the drill. The little key that you use to tighten the bit grip can be cumbersome; I kept dropping it. But, its very easy to manage once you get the hang of things. It was the least expensive hammer drill available at that time and I'm happy I purchased it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyDee Get the Right Tool for the Job...... Ugh!!!
I'm the pro bono techie at the Volunteer Center of Brown County, and needed another CAT5 from the basement to the Dmarc. The floor is concrete, no worries because I have my 3/8" Skill drill and Craftsman carbide tip concrete drill bits.
Man, I worked on that whole for 4 hours...... needed a longer drill bit, and found this Ryobi on the HD site. checked out the reviews, and headed to Home Depot. Within 15 minutes the hole is done.....
Note to self: "Get the Right Tool for the Job"
Very glad with my purchase!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYguy Don't waste your time and money! Buy the DeWalt DW511 instead.
If you need a hammer drill for masonry or concrete work, don't waste your time or money with this drill. The Ryobi D620H is marketed as a hammer drill, but it has the weakest "hammer" function I have ever seen. If you just want a conventional drill, then maybe the Ryobi is okay, but there is little to no hammer capability with this product. I went through three drill bits and only managed to partially drill two 5/16" holes in concrete. I then packed this unit up and returned it to Home Depot. I purchased a DeWalt DW511, and could not be happier. I quickly (less than 5 minutes) finished the remaining 10 holes with a single drill bit, and that bit still has life in it. I wasted an afternoon with the Ryobi. Don't waste your time! Buy the DeWalt instead.

Bought this to drill through 10" block wall. Got a big 1/2" x 12" bit and this drill cut through like butter. Have also done smaller holes for drapes etc - works great. Wish i would have bought a hammer drill years ago instead of chewing up bits with a regular drill (this one has regular drill mode also). Make sure to get hammer drill bits which are different than regular masonry bits. I Highly recommend this drill.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wayne Buyer Beware! Stop working after 5 minutes!
I read the reviews before I bought it to do some concrete drilling. It sounded perfect! But I noticed one review that stated the drill stop working after a short period of time... and that is exactly what happen to me! When it was working (which was for only 5 minutes!) it drilled through the concrete like it was butter but soon just stopped. I took it back for a refund. Maybe it works better with wood.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KennyHendrick Awkward for normal use
I can't help but to comment on this drill. Firstly, I'm 50yrs old and have used a few dozen drills in my time. This particular drill is the most awkward drill I have ever come up against. Yes, the price is right but the prospective buyer should maybe go down to home depot and check out the feel of it in your hands and try to envision the chores you'd like to use this for. Then try the feel of another comparably priced drill.
Here's my assessment: All the weight of this drill is foreward of the drill handle which makes it want to fall forward, you might presume you can just hold the handle firmly to steady it however the drill button is going to restrict one or two fingers from holding this drill up when drilling laterally. I debated returning this and probably would have if I could drive. This requires the use of a chuck to tighten the bits but seems to hold the bits well. As for the adjustable speeds....well, it could be a tad more smoother but again, for the price I guess we can't complain compared to the 2 or 3 other makers our country has a choice of nowadays.
On a scale of 1-10

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SR12 Does what it says it will do..
It made drilling holes in concrete as easy as drilling holes in wood. The switch to make it like regular drill and then hammer drill gives it a lot of versatility.
