Ive had this drill for two years, my friend borrowed it while renovating his house and i am using it to renovate mine. I used it to strap pex to the joists under my house screwing two hole straps and it went all day never needing the battery changed. I decided that i was gonna drive 1/4 x 3" lag bolts into wood and used that as an excuse to buy the DeWalt 20v MAX kit with big hammerdrill (which is Phenomenal) because i thought there was no way the Ryobi would be able to do that and i really wanted the DeWalt impact.... I was wrong... I decided just for a laugh to see how far it would drive them and this drill drove those lag bolts in.( Steel LH Dottie 1/4"x3" lag). Now when compared to the DeWalt of course it doesnt come close, but then again the DeWalt is in a different class, performace wise and COST wise. I am tough on tools and this Ryobi has kept up so far, for a normal person using it around the house this is an EXCELLENT drill. Driving drywall screws, machine screws etc, no problem, but dont compare it to drills outside its class and dont compare it to impacts.. On that note I am singing the praises of this drill and it is awesome, but in this particular case when you consider how much its gonna cost to get the charger and the batteries which are not included in this price, you are better off getting the lower end 12v and 18v Milwaukee, Bosch and DeWalt drill combos which in my opinion would be a better bet..

I already owned one of these drills and i liked it so much i bought another so i have the same charging and battery systems for multiple tools. the drill is very strong and lasts long on a full charge. I use one for drilling and one for screwing so as not to constantly change bits between work.

This thing works great for everything I need.

I like the 2 speed function for grinding, using a wire cup for removing paint, and using a mothers powerball.

The grip is comfortable and it has a built in holder for a bit. The magnet that sits over the battery is helpful for loose screws. Honestly, I do not use the level at all so I could not tell you how great it is. The only thing I do not like is the forward/reverse switch. I personally would like it slightly lower on the handle.

Yes, I would recommend this. I bought mine as a set with 2 lithium batteries, the charger, and a carrying bag from a local pawn shop for $50. It was almost new and included a one year warranty. Check around for prices because websites and in store prices constantly change.

If The Clicks are just a setback to this model then thats fine, But i have a very similar model the p208B and if doesnt seem to make anywhere near as much noise. It comes from the rear of the Drill where the motor is located, it seems like a plastic piece inside with fins on it is catching the edges of the frame, not sure if faulty parts or just that piece was made to large in this model. Works Though, but will Add additional Comments if that's not the case.

I have owned the standard Ryobi 18V drill for several years. I bought this one because I thought it was an impact driver. However, it is not but the drill is still great. I like the more compact design over the old drill. I haven't had any problems with it at all. I would recommend it to anyone.

I happen to have chosen a while back to standardize on a particular manufacturer for garage-type tools. This drill was not the first Ryobi product and I bought it specifically because I have the battery, which I use and share for three other products. I used it for quite some time now. Although I use it infrequently, it hasn't failed to do whatever I wanted it to do in the past many months. It has "forward" and "backward" rotation options that are easy to switch. It has a nice place to store one screw-driver bit. I like the analog/gradual control of the speed. I notice a spark inside the drill motor when I initially operate in a pulsed fashion, but that should be normal; just don't operate if you smell gas! :)

This drill came with two batteries and one will not take a charge at all. Like another reviewer, the drill will quit working for no apparent reason. It will also start working again for no reason. Too bad because I really like the balance and light weight. I will try to exchange it.

Very satisfied with my purchase. You really cannot beat the new Lithium batteries. It was a struggle getting the battery to die! I have since purchased a few other one+ items including weedwacker and blower. Very happy with these purchases as well. Great product!

This is a very nice drill - plenty of power and more compact than earlier Ryobi drills. I cannot speak to its reliability; my earlier model Ryobi drill died after just five years, because of an internal short circuit. That is not very much time for a drill.

The drill works perfect. I purchased it to use with a grain mill. With the drill, i was able to mill 13 pounds of grain in about two minutes. my old cordless drill could not mill the barley.

It arrived quickly without damage.
