Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â by QualityonaBudget Amazing tool set for the money
These pieces are great entry level lithium ion cordless tools. I was debating between these and the milwaukee tools but i could not justify the huge price difference.
Batteries-Good Battery life. Consider getting the full size batteries if you are doing an all day job.
Drill-Great power, great speed. NO BELT CLIP. I know it doesn't sound like much but it is pretty darn annoying. The chuck seemed a little off center at first but it's fine now.
Driver- Seriously cool tool. I have used it from driving lag bolts to removing lawn mower blades. Also no belt clip.
Reciprocating Saw-Cordless blade change! Great power, antivibe doesnt really work but it is a great piece of equipment
Circular saw- It's what you would expect from a very small circular saw. That being said, it did a good job. Very light duty. I use it in conjunction with a worm drive saw.
Multitool- you will use it for a lot more than you think. What a really great tool. Makes small trim cuts easier and allows a fantastic range of motion. Awesome tool!
LIght- Its fine. Kind of bright. Nice to have. would be better if it was a stand up flex head.
Overall-Great set for the money. I have used these in construction and even though i was joshed a little about the lime green color and the low price tag, my friends who have Milwaukee tools were very impressed. It would have been nice to get a radio in this set, but otherwise I am not complaining

Rated 4 out of 5Â 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.
