Purchased this over the weekend. Just the two batteries go for$99. Since I have other Ryobi tools this is an even better deal because the new batteries work with my other tools. I used the impact diver on some 2 1/2 in screws and it worked great. Can't go wrong especially at this price.

People who buy seem to love it...I recently bought a similar set up made by Makita, on sale for $200 - so for you value buyers, this is the time to move (and remember, if it does not work out, you can return it to Home Depot...)

I bought this for myself as a father's day present this weekend at HD. I have remodeled 4 houses using the same Ryobi One+ drill in the last 8 years and it is still running strong. I bought this set because the batteries and impact driver are worth way more than $99. Don't pass up this deal!

Thanks !! This kit as a Fact refurb costs more than this usually !! I have had this same set for the last 5 yrs. It works flawless ! Just ordered another set 2 min ago, THANKS !!

I have this impact driver, and absolutely love it. I hardly even use my drill anymore. And the batteries last a good long while between charges.

bookmarked, going to pick this up on my way home today! I burnt out my craftsman POS this weekend.

Great deal - even better with an extra 5$ off with promo code: RMN5OFF (case sensitive!!!)

Has the quality of Ryobi improved?

@aliusa: I am unaware of quality ever being a problem.

These are very good for around-the-house use (especially at this price), but they are quite heavy if you plan to use them for hours at a time (or on a ladder) then you will want to go with a Makita or a Milwaukee. This price can't be beat for occasional use though.

@thomasr: I used to buy Ryobi products (because they were cheaper) but then someone in the construction field told they are garbage, don't waste your money.

I did not their driver builts break more readily than lets say a DeWalt brand. But I think Dewalt quality has decreased too.

I've had the same Black and Decker cordless drill for about 10 years and it's still running strong but the battery won't hold a charge anymore so this was perfect timing. I picked it up on the way home last night. The drills are $79 and $129 is you buy them separately plus the batteries are expensive too.

@cownose: The NiCd packs are heavy. But I really like the weight and capacity of the Lithium packs.
The tools do seem a bit bulkier than Makita, but I've not run into a problem with 'em yet (got a NiCd set on clearance for $30 with 2 batteries and upgraded to Lithium in October when I got a weedeater (on NiCd, it only runs for ~20 minutes. On a Li pack [the small one], it works for 40 minutes without breaking a sweat and is lighter to boot).

I do like the led's on the end of the makita though. Grmble.
And why don't these people make a LED light (or droplight bar!)?
-- I know what I'm gonna be printing when it arrives!

I'm going to pull the trigger on this one. I've got a bunch-O-Ryobi 1+ stuff already. Last year I bought a string trimmer and leaf blower to get the large capacity Li-ion battery and charger. At some point I split some tool and a small battery pack/Li-ion battery with my son (he got the tool - driii IIRC) I started with a refurb kit with drill, reciprocating saw, circular saw and flashlight with Nicad batteries. The Li-ion batteries hold more juice and weigh less. I already have the (blue) impact driver but this will give me another along with another drill.

I also have an older 12V Hitachi drill/flashlight combo that works great, but Hitachi never made the variety of tools that Ryobi made. If you're earning your living with these tools, you probably want to spend the extra $$ for DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee etc. but for homeowner use, these are fine.

@aliusa: It is like faulting Toyota for not being Bentley IMO. Ryobi is not intended to compete with Hilti etc. in commercial use. My Ryobi tools have served me well, better than my B&D stuff (but not even close to Hilti obviously).

Is there s promo code or something? If not, the price has changed to $129

@mfirey: Still $99 in the stores. I saw it there for $99 and just saw an add for that price on TV.
