Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JMS1 excellent value
Just did a major basement reno, and this kit has made the task easier and more efficient. The impact driver had the biggest workout, and had NO trouble sinking 2.5" and 3" standard construction screws into 40-year old dried-out joists - has held up very well over the course of more than a thousand screws. The drill has performed equally well, and I compelled to refute the negative review posted below - these things have plenty of power. Once I added the belt-clip accessory the HD person recommended, these two items easily measured up to the Ridgid drivers I had previously borrowed - I would recommend one improvement, which is to incorporate a 5 second delay on the LED so that you can have light when not actually driving.
The other tools have also lived up to expectations, and the multi-tool has been extremely handy. Battery life has been great, and the recharge time is surprisingly short. These tools also seem to be sufficiently rugged, as a couple of mine have survived a six-foot fall onto concrete, and suffered nary a scratch.
I highly recommend this set to the value-conscious renovator.

My co-workers were trying to talk me out of buying Ryobi but I did some research and bought them anyway and I'm sure glad that I did. I work on professional and personal projects with these tools and they perform great! Just take care of them and they'll take care of you. Some of my co-workers even wanted me to pick-up a kit for them after seeing how they performed.
- The multitool itself is an amazingly versatile tool. With the adapter for Dremel and Rigid attachments included, this piece alone is no joke.
- The circular saw is awesome. The laser can be adjusted pretty accurately if you got a soft touch. But I still eye my cuts anyway just to make sure, you never know when a rough cut might knock the laser out of alignment.
- I'd put the drill and driver up against a Makita any-day. Once you get used to the variable speed they will impress.
- The reciprocating saw performed exactly as expected and it's pretty lightweight to boot.
- The flashlight ain't no LED but it's not bad at all in my opinion.
The only thing I would advise is to get at least one of the bigger batteries. That plus the two included and only a half hour charge time will keep you working all-day. And at the price point of this combo-kit why not.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYNewb Refinishing shooting table
Just bought this kit last week after reading alot of reviews and weighing the pros and cons. I bought it mostly for light duty, around the house and property use.
This weekends project was an old ratty shooting bench that needed to be refinished. We didnt get extreme but added a few more features and ergonomics the old bench just didnt have.
The first tool used was the sawzall to cut through the unreachable bolts holding the seat to the sliding frame, needless to say the blade cut for about 20 seconds than snapped. I should have known better than to use the factory blade and had left my other bimetals at the house.
After that I used the impact driver to remove some old rusty bolts holding the old ply and seat frame. Zipped them off like they were butter, was quite impressed with the driver.
Next we started cutting the 3/4 for the new seat mount and benchtop with the circular saw. Factory blade and small battery did plenty of cross cuts across the 4x8 plywood and some 2x4 cross beams, but battery didnt make it through the job (did keep swapping it into impact / drill/ multitool) I still would like to get the biggest lion+ bat though and new blade.
Mounted everything , used the impact to drive them home. Made short work of 2 1/2 deck screws and 3/8 carriage bolts. The impact is the must own of the bunch. Used multitool to sand and carve initials into benchtop , nice little tool would like to get some more heads for it.
All in all I am happy with my purchase, worked great the first time out would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get a great tool kit for a good price. Cant wait to tackle another project with the tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CMG100 Great Products...Even better price!
I have had this kit for quite some time and I truly regret not purchasing it earlier. I am an electrician by trade so I get to use all the tools at least 3 or 4 times a week. I wasn't big on funds when it came time to look for a new kit to replace my old Milwaukee set that I had for about 6 years so I turned to this kit to solve my problem. It did just that and more the batteries charge in less than 20 minutes compared to my old ni-cad that took ages to charge. The multi-tool is a big plus and has made my life easier countless times. Both drill get the job done with ease and so does both saws. At first i was in doubt about this kit but thank god I purchased it and been loving them since......Great job Ryobi

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flyguy2274 The quality I have come to expect from Ryobi and more improvements!
I have most of these tools in the older models, but have re-purposed my old drill to run my ice auger. When I went to replace it and get an impact driver I realized the kit had some great upgrades in it from the old tools. The laser line on the circular saw, the lights on the impact driver and drill, with the shorter, smaller 1/2" drill providing the same power as the older version. So, I bought the kit and have thoroughly enjoyed using these tools with the improvements! Great tools, as I've come to expect from Ryobi, at an extremely competitive price to the big brand tools. Having worked contracting I've seen the Ryobi tools work along side the more expensive brands and perform just as well, while lasting just as long!
