I’ve typically opted for corded hand tools, under the assumption (due to past experiences) the battery life is less than desirable, the power is less than needed and cost is higher than reasonable. Fast forward to the 21st century … My kids gave me a “new” battery operated drill. I was skeptical, but quickly became a believer. After using the drill several times, demonstrating great battery life and all the torque I could reasonably handle, not to mention the absolute joy of not having to contend with an electrical cord tether, I thought … “anything that feels this good … I’ve just got to go all the way!” I purchased the super combo primarily due to the ‘package’ pricing, even though it would give me a second drill. Subsequently, I purchased an ‘impact’ drill and even got the 22in hedge trimmer. I can’t overstate how much easier my life (and yard work) is without having to deal with that pesky electrical extension cord!
The biggest advantage is the pure genius of a single battery which works in all these tools! And the package cost point(s) are manageable for us DIY’ers.
If there I could make a suggestion to Home Depot, it would be to allow a “custom” package offer where a customer could select more than one tool and HD provide a “package” price. There are several other tools I’d like to have, but to purchase each as a ‘standalone purchase’ gets to be a little pricey.

I've had ryobi cordless tools from when they issued ni-cad batteries. I've put the cordless drill under some heavy use at times until the batteries wore out. Then I went to lithium ion batteries. Runs as strong as new. I decided to get the new set on sale since my old ryobi drill was suffering from clutch lockup under heavy use on a hot day. Actually I still use it plus the new one. Cordless saw is a godsend when needed. Versatility is great with my occasional projects. If you can't afford a $500-$600 set of cordless tools then buy this. The new lithium ion batteries get a full charge in as little as 15 minutes. You can't beat that at this price!

First of all the modular design is great. I purchased my first Ryobi product for bike riding. It was a small portable air compressor for airing up tires. Then I needed a new cordless drill. I now have many Ryobi tools because they all use the same 18 volt batteries. For the cost they are great tools. I have had many brands of tools and Ryobi has surprised me with their quality. For power needs I still use plug in power tools, but these are my go to drills. I don't earn a living with my tools but I don't baby them either. I feel these tools have been a good investment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JiffyJon What an incredible deal, and great product.
I've had a Black & Decker tool set similar to this except it has Ni-cad batteries that go dead sitting on the shelf which makes the tool pretty much useless unless you leave the batteries on the charger all the time which destroy's the battery. This tool being li-ion does not have this problem, but this tool also has way more power than others I have used. The batteries charge up in less than a half an hour which allows you to be very productive. Of course the main plus on this set was the incredibly low price. I don't really understand how they can sell this whole set for only $129.95.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BOOMH READ REVIEWS FIRST BEFORE BUYING.......Limited in what it can do.
I bought this as my first set with high hopes. I didn't know much about wood work and it was on sale for a seemingly good price. It definitely has its limits. I thought the circular saw can cut a 4x4, nope! It can barely cut a 2x4 without snagging. I'm still debating on weather I should keep this or not. If you plan on doing heavy wood work DO NOT BUY THIS. Invest the money and get yourself the proper tools; miter saw, better driver/drill, etc. Again, very limited in its performance. May be good for only light wood work or something else.

I've had Ridgid and Black and Decker battery operated tools in the past all have short battery life and would loose power under torque. Not these tools I've used the circular and reciprocal saws without any issues. Plenty of power to cut through any substrate. Best tools I've had for a long time.
