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 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.

This is a good purchase. This drill has a selector switch which gives it duel functionality (Hammer Drill or just Drill). I have used that a lot. The speed control is a small roller on the trigger which could have been better thought out but it works. The drill is a little off balance but no more than the other drills that are in the same price range without the hammer. This is a great tool to have in your shop and if you only have to do one job of cement drilling this purchase is worth it...it will save you that much time compared to trying to drill without the hammer.

The drill is super easy to use. It is my third drill, but first hammer drill. I love the dual feature, the side handle and the depth guard. A truly terrific drill. I am no expert at all; but I watched about a dozen video reviews of people way better at this stuff than me, using and reviewing this drill. From amateur to professional, everyone gave this drill great reviews. I would recommend watching those videos.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tucson Great drill
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tasker Very good drill.
I bought this drill as an upgrade from my existing battery powered drill which was very weak and only good for minor drilling/driving. I wanted a powerful and versatile drill that could handle pretty much anything, even if it was corded. IT is very powerful and the fact that its a hammer drill means I can now drill pretty much into any surface im likely to encounter. I think its a good upgrade if you want a serious drill for routine work without having to shell out the big bucks. It has all the features and specs of the more expensive makitas and milwaukees and dewalts and what not but at a fraction of the price. Over all a solid, no-nonsense drill that is an excellent upgrade for the casual DIY-er. I would definitely recommend it.
P.S: someone commented that the drill is front heavy because of the placement of the trigger at the very end. I have to say that first of all prett much ALL the corded hammer drills I saw in home depot had the same exact configuration. Secondly, with the grip handle the forward center of gravity became a complete non-issue at least for me. I found that the grip handle made it very easy to stay accurate and on target and drill straight through perpendicular to the wall without being thrown off.
