I spend my time between the main land and Puerto Rico out here on the island I would say about 85% of structures are made of cement including all new homes,so having masonary tools is a must I myself own 2 sds+ drills and a newer Ryobi cordless hammerdrill so I wanted that middle of the road hammerdrill with a cord,all I do is DIY and ocassional jobs for the family so this Ryobi corded drill looked fine to me from that point so I bought it and broke it in by running it full speed with out a load for a minute or two to let the brushes set in then I fit in a Dewalt 1/2 carbide bit and tried to drill a couple of holes on a solid slab of concrete and it all went nice and smooth,won't now how long this will last but if you buy cheap bits you will kill this drill sooner than later so if you know you got yourself a good price on the drill don't cheapen out on the bits,use quality bits like the Dewalt set Model # DW5207 also from HD and the drill should perform good and cool also when on hammer mode go full speed if posible to keep the drills fan at high to prevent overheating the drill,I have had good luck with Ryobi tools and this one looks to be a solid good one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RoughCutCarpentry Not great, not horrible
We purchased this drill to make 10 1/8 pilot holes through bricks.. my regular drill was left home and in a pinch I figured why not. Holes one and two were ok, drill ran fine, 3rd hole and things went sideways. Drill started to smoke.. motor was burning out.
I would understand if these were deeper holes, wider even but at 1/8, that's just not acceptable. This drill will work in a pinch, out of the box for light duty type stuff.

Works well as a drill and hammer drill. The dial on the trigger that controls the variable speed is a little tricky because it can move as the trigger is pulled but over all it preforms better than expected

Drilled two 3/16" holes in brick and drove two tapcon screws and the drill started smoking. Returned immediately.
