Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by karl irreplaceable part broke
The piece that holds the blade on broke, its a specialty piece that you cannot buy seperatly. So the tool is now compleatly useless.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BennettCKM many uses
I bought this 2 months ago for one project and have found other uses no problem. Light and easy to hold in any position. Easy to control as the vibration is not crazy or awkward. I've used it to cut wood and metal as well as the sanding attachment.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pmikejunot Major disappointment!
After six months of ownership, and using this tool about once a week, the motor has a burnt smell, and it seizes after a couple of minutes of use. Multi tools have become a necessity for me, particularly cordless multi tools. I also own a 20 volt Dewalt. It has proved to be much more durable, and doesn't heat up as much when in use. The Ryobi has a couple of neat features. For one, it has a reversing switch. Depending on what edge I'm using to cut at an angle, using the reversing switch will pull the blade into the work piece or steer it away. A second nice feature is that the head detaches to motorize other optional tools. But considering the lack of durability, I don't think that feature has any real value. Ryobi has such great ideas with their 18 volt line of tools, but Ryobi is lacking in quality. What's strange is that Rigid tools are made by the same company and have excellent durability.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drummy Model P570
I just purchased the newer model, P570, and tested it on some 1" x 6" off-cuts of cedar, Douglas-fir, and pine, and some 5/8" gypsum board.
PROS: Good weight; well balanced; powerful; smooth, straight cuts; excellent sanding; feels rugged; adapter included for Bosch and Drimmel accessories (see photo).
CONS: The wood-cutting blade will soon need to be upgraded (typical with most new-saw purchases) because it requires plenty of accuracy-compromising "persuasion" after a certain point.
A few reviewers were having issues where the battery is connected. Ryobi may have addressed those issues with this newer model, but not sure. My batteries install easily and have the typical "play" (1/16–1/8"), with no signs of wear. I hope my photos help here.
This tool should serve me well for years to come, with high-quality blades.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JL price difference
The tool itself is satisfactory. My main reason for buying Ryobi was I already have many Ryobi tools, so the battery fit another tool in my collection.
The problem came when I went to the HD to buy it. The HD website said $59, free delivery or free in store pick up. I drove up to the HD to buy the tool. It was $69. I couldn't access the web to show the manager the price variance. He gave it to me for the lower price. I wonder how many other items are like this?
Anyway, I'm off to HD to show him the web site price (i printed the page to bring it with me).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mandy Light and powerful.
I loved this tool in the first 30 seconds of using it. I had another brand previously and this Ryobi was much better. It had all the power I needed. It was comfortable to use and easy to get into a tight spot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY925 Just what I needed
I was looking for a multi-tool for a few projects around the house, and was thrilled when I saw RYOBI had one in their ONE+ system. I already have a bunch of their tools, so I was glad I didn't need to buy another battery as I was able to plug and play with the rest of my batteries. Very easy to swap out the heads quickly depending on what you need it for.
