18V ONE+ HP Compact Brushless 1/2" Drill/Driver Kit
18V ONE+ HP Compact Brushless 1/2" Drill/Driver Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 181.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing Every time I use this drill I'm happy. I was coming from a Ryobi drill that was a cheap $20 drill plug in the wall from 15 years ago. This drill is so much better in so many ways, from the way the drill bit can be clicked into place by hand, to the portability of it due to being battery-powered, to the torque settings which allow me to adjust the driving strength, and the amount of control that I have with my trigger finger to go as slowly or quickly as I need to. And the battery life is amazing. I have not had to recharge my battery since its initial charge, and I have to have used it for at least 10 hours over 2 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Size I've used this on several projects already, and I love the compact size and excellent power of this new drill. I have three other Ryobi One+ drills, and this one is destined to become my favorite. I've had the One+ system since it first came out in 2004, and still have the original blue drill that was in my first kit (and still use it). I think Ryobi was the first company to develop the "one battery - many tools" concept, but it was the right way to go, and now everyone is on the bandwagon. The new brushless tools are a great improvement, I already have the drill and the one-handed reciprocating saw, and will add more as I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who Would of Thought? 20 years ago I bought a combination set of 1/2" drill, sawzall, circular saw and work light. Who would of thought when I bought the Compact 1/2" drill, the battery charger and spare battery in December 2020 that it would breathe new life into my 20 year old tools also. The new lithium batteries work in the old tools as well as the new tools. The new compact drill/driver is nice to use because of its lighter weight and smaller size. Kudos to Ryobi for thinking about the customer/consumer of their products for developing new products to work with their vintage products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, powerful & just right! I’m a professional handyman & I also live on a boat, so I was looking for the perfect balance between weight, size & power. I’ve owned maybe two Ryobi tools in my career- a belt sander, and a palm sander, so when I was looking for a new drill driver, I really didn’t consider the brand. HOWEVER, once I compared this particular HD release to the competitors, I was sold! It’s tight, functional & feels like a step above what the market currently offers at this price point. I’ve dropped mine overboard, driven 3 1/2” hole saws, and drilled & driven all sizes of bits & screws. As a 25+ year, experienced renovation expert, I’m absolutely thrilled with this lil’ drill/driver!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mildly disappointed due to lack of features. I purchased the PSBDD01CN (1/2" compact drill) as a possible replacement for one of my P208Bs (1/2" standard drill). If you remove the batteries from the 2 drills and place them side-by-side, the height is nearly identical. The compact drill is about 2" shorter (from the back of the motor casing to the front of the chuck). The chuck is shorter than normal and does not hold bits as tightly as the standard. The compact drill does not have a friction clip for a drill bit and does not have the handy magnetized area for screws or more bits. It also comes without the built in level on the P208B. It does have a meaningless LED light that is of very marginal utility. I'll keep it, but it does not replace the P208B.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small and Light, BUT? My first brushless drill, bit not my first time using one. First let me add it is pretty light for a drill, 2ndly it's louder IMO than my brushed Ryobi drill, 3rdly the stock batteries that came with it don't last very long it seemed when I did a small house project. I had to take a star off for two reasons. 1 it doesn't have that bit holder that is mounted on the front of the drill, 2 my drill had a magnet on the front so certain bits and screws wouldn't go missing on the floor if they slipped out of your hand. However I do like the small led on the front of this one and the torque setting knob seems to have grip this time. compared to my old one. Finally the price was just about perfect compared to popular name brand drills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Drill with lots of power! This little drill is really impressive. It is really compact and light compared to any previous cordless drills I have used, yet it is very powerful as well. It also is easy to grip with the rubber coated handle. I have been using a Ryobi cordless drill for years, and it has been a workhorse. This new tiny drill is now going to be my go to drill as it is much smaller and way lighter, probably with as much or more power than my previous drill. It also seems to be pretty efficient, as I am getting lots of run time, even with the included compact batteries. The LED is a nice touch as well, lighting up even with the drill not running. If it is as reliable as all of my other Ryobi One+ tools, I expect it to be using it for many years.
