Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Retired Best Purchase Ever
I just finished building 3 Adirondack chairs using this tool set. There were no cords to trip over or get in the way. I have already added an impact drill to this set. There was no need to recharge the batteries, plenty of power for my project. My best tool purchase ever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TObe Great reciprocating saw!!!
I bought this set for the reciprocating saw, two batteries and charger. For that tool alone this combo is the best. The price alone makes it worth it. It's just a bonus that the drill and flash light are included. I don't really need the circular saw since I generally use my table saw for rip cuts.
To review the reciprocating saw, I need it to speed up harvesting 5-6 inch hardwood logs from the local woods. I definitely shopped around on Craigslist and other avenues for a cheap saw. For the price, I couldn't reasonably beat it.
I was mostly worried about the power and battery life. So, I attached the carbide tooth diablo 9" nail embedded wood blade because I didn't want it to dull quickly if I hit dirt. I'm going to work it hard. Then I got to work.
Check out the picture. That is 6" white oak. I was able to make 4 cuts on one of the included batteries. The saw and blade made great smooth cuts at a reasonable speed. Far from chain saw speed but beats using muscle power and my pruning saw.
The saw alone made the price worth it. Now to mil the logs in my shop and make a few projects to sell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maria Surprisingly Powerful!
Bought this on sale to complement my WeedEater/Blower combo after reading all the rave reviews... It DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!! Granted, at first the color and size made them "appear" like toys, but they are far from it! Powerful enough to do literally any job around the house with little ease! 5 Stars without a doubt

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RedStang Great flashlight
I don't usually talk about or even use most flashlights that come with these kits but i love how you can turn the lens so the beam aims up. It helps so much when i'm changing oil or working under my vehicles. I was also surprised how powerful it was because we had a raccoon around while camping and i was able to lite him up at least 75 yards away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by booneperc A "must own" set of power tools
If only I had this set of Ryobi power tools when I first started remodeling and repair projects 30 years ago my life would have been a LOT easier. I am impressed with the power and length of time I can work on one battery charge. I recently completed work on installing a skylight and used every tool in this set multiple times. It made it so much easier than the days of corded tools and hand saws. I even used the light to find my cat that climbed up the ladder into the attic and got lost in the insulation-ha! My neighbor owns this set and I saw how convenient these tools were. That's when I bought my own.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by halfwolf This is a great tool combo.
This is a great combo, all except for the light. The light might be used in the future, but has not been of use as of yet. The circular saw is great, but uses a lot of juice, and can do what most electrical saws can. The drill seems to last forever on a single charge and with the right bits can do whatever is needed. The reciprocating saw is great and works just as good as high dollar ones. Overall this is a great buy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied Great Customer Service
When I first purchased this product, I was disappointed. The batteries that came with it were defective. They would not hold a charge and rendered the tools useless. However, Ryobi customer service, after investigating the problem, not only replaced the batteries, they sent me upgraded batteries and charger and an additional tool. With the new batteries, all the tools have great staying power. I am doing a complete house remodel and I am giving these tools a real workout. They are the first tools I reach for. I am very satisfied with this purchase and very impressed with Ryobi's customer service. These tools are a very good value for cost choice. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DoingItRight Very impressed with this Ryobi Combo Kit
I purchased to set to complete a few DIY projects around the house. The cordless functionality is great and makes the tools easier to handle. They are sturdy and well made considering they are cordless. For someone doing heavy construction of course this is not the kit for you but for the average homeowner it is plenty enough. I added the Ryobi cordless miter saw to this kit and it also works great. Battery life is good depending on what you are cutting an the type of blades. The blades that come with the saw is mainly for ripping but you can easily change it out for a finish type blade with finer teeth. I am very satisfied with the kit and have had no problems with it after about 6 months of use. I did all the trim work in the bathroom shown in the picture below using this combo kit and the Ryobi cordless miter saw. This includes building the line cabinet, medicine cabinet, wainscoting and trim around the mirror.
