Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected!! I’ve had cordless tools forever but now that I really don’t NEED cordless. I thought that I would start picking up corded hand tools. Actually got tired of shelling out a ton of money for batteries. I could not be happier for doing so. I picked up this drill and a Ryobi circular saw to start. Wow I could not believe the amount of power that I had been missing with using cordless. Thanks a ton Ryobi for always making a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product; easy to use! I'm having to take care of things myself now that my husband is disabled. I find that the Ryobi is easy for me to handle and I really love the electric one. For years I had a rechargeable one, but it was never 'ready' when I needed it. This one IS; just plug it in. May be 'old fashioned' but it sure suits my needs every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Drill is a great tool to have I purchased this drill right after buying my first house. I've used it on a wide variety of projects now and I am extremely happy with it. It's an invaluable part of my growing tool kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like an Extension of your hand... I like a corded drill/driver for around the house because access to an outlet is ubiquitous and I don't want to use up battery life unnecessarily. This tool feels like part of my hand when I use it. It's light, the grip is comfortable and the speed control is flexible. Inserting and removing bits and drivers is really easy, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than expected I needed a drill to do a job that required hole drilling along with screw driving and bolt fasteners. I had forgotten my cordless drill,which was 500 kms away, so went down to the local hardware store to pick up a cheap replacement to do the job. Found this corded drill for a very reasonable price. I was really impressed as to how it handled. Comfortable to use and more than enough power

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Sweet I was given this drill as a Christmas gift and it definitely comes in handy. I like that it plugs in so I don't have to worry about batteries being charged for the drill to give off the full power it is capable of. With that said, it is a simple drill that has enough torque to get some home DIY projects complete but I wouldn't suggest it for anything heavy duty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Drill This drill has been used for so many things in my workshop. I have it hanging and plugged in and ready to go, my preferred drill when working on the workbench. I have cordless options available for when I need mobility, but I like the consistency I get with a corded option when I'm working in an area near an outlet.
