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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I needed! I needed something reliable and affordable - and I found it. I'm not building a skyscraper, but my home projects just got easier from using my new drill. powerful and easy to use! cordless drills are nice, but this corded drill finishes what the cordless just can't. I highly recommend this

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
