Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cy Great set to get started
I bought this set sometime in Dec. 2015, and used it for several projects - kitchen nook, 2 bath vanities, a picture frame, a modification on an Ikea dining table, and various repairs around the house.
I loved the saw in particular for the low noise level.
Most of the material cut were 3/4 thick ply or pine, and the tiny battery is good for quite a few cuts.
As a reference, recently I charged the battery full and cut the Ikea table leaf that was 2 inch thick. I did the equivalent of 12 feet if work before the battery quit.
The saw blade included is very rough (24 teeth?). I bought a 34 tooth blade, which cuts pine almost just as fast as the original blade, but leaves a much smoother cut.
I think this set is definitely worth to be considered specially by a rookie.

This combo Drill and Saw set is hands down the best purchase you can get for a tool bucket Guy (or Girl) on the fly, whether your building a deerstand in the woods or just at your Cabin on the lake where you wouldn't have your stationary tools, I have had my set for 10 years and just purchased a new one for my son as a Christmas gift, what a set!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Robi Circular saw is junk
I had the same issue as another reviewer.... With a fully charged batter, the saw couldn't make it through two 4' cuts on a 3/4" plywood sheet before it was totally dead. What handyman is going to carry enough extra batteries to keep this thing going for anything more than the smallest of projects?!?! Additionally, the safety lever above the trigger is complete junk. It's flimsy and certainly won't last. It's going back tomorrow.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by garcar circular saw
This circular saw is JUNK ! Pretty much totally useless if you are cutting anything over 1/4 inch thickness. I was cutting 1/2 inch plywood and was making a cut that was only 5 feet long and this saw drained 2 fully charged batteries. I needed to make 1 more short 8 inch cut and couldn't because the batteries were dead. Do not buy this saw if you are looking for a cordless circular saw. Total waste of money !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeroche AWESOME RYOBI PRODUCT
I have, over the past year, replaced ALL my cordless gear ( shop, garden, etc.) with Ryobi 18v (lithium) tools and batteries. The tools are light and durable, the batteries charge quickly and STAY CHARGED, one battery fits ALL..the prices are right......in short...I am a HAPPY CAMPER.....

Drill is light weight and easy to handle as was the saw. Recently purchased a house and I have used this set so much it has been priceless. Also currently building 3 murphy beds and I can't imagine having to do this without this set. Great value!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Adam Saw failed after a few uses
The drill works great and has plenty of power. It has no problem drilling 3/4" holes with a spade bit through double top plates. The saw is a little disappointing though because after just a few uses it suddenly started to make a loud grinding noise. I removed the blade and confirmed that the noise was the coming from the motor. The Ryobi 3 year warrantee is a joke. You have to deliver the product to a authorized service center at your own expense but there are no service centers within 50 miles of Denver. Fortunately I was able to do an exchange at Home Depot.
