I don't use a drill often so the cordless models are too much hassle to keep charged...this is a nice corded model, always ready to go and does a fine job. Ideal for the weekend project or quick repair. Good quality at an affordable price
Don't be fooled by the price of this drill. It may be the cheapest drill at Home Depot. It is made in China. You would think it is made in America or Japan. It does not feel cheap though. It is easy to use. It has amazing power. You can hear its power. You can feel its power. It works without any disappointment. I love products that are simple to use and do their jobs well. This drill is a winner. Cordless drills are great for tightening screws. This drill is exactly what I want in drilling holes through wood, steel, cement, concrete, and stucco. Get yourself a good set of drill bits and you are set.
Pros: Durable, Strong Suction, Powerful, Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting

No, I do not recommend this product.
While my need for an electric drill was somewhat modest as I planned to install a hasp for a padlock for the storage locker in the basement, I found the Ryobi 3/8 very suited to those needs both stylishly and economically. As I faced the 100 year old door frame that had seen a century of various handymen and had outlasted them all having the Ryobi 3/8 at my side was a welcome asset in my battle. With grim determination and my blue whirling Ryobi 3/8 comfortably in hand I completed my task against stupendous odds and now my possessions are safely locked away and I can focus on m other problems. Thanks Ryobi 3/8!
Pros: Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Powerful
I read the reviews and decided to make the purchase, I've never owned a drill and I'm a petite woman so I need a small drill with a lot of power. First and foremost, you cant beat $30 bucks with a stick, and I even purchased a driver and bit set to go with it which costs $11 another price you cant beat. It came in a convenient zippered bag, which also fits the driver set (sold separately). Those drivers go through metal like a hot knife through butter. I put up my daughter's curtain rods and installed a top lock on my apartment door all in under an hour, which is great for my first time using a drill. Great purchase, I strictly trusted the home depot customer reviews.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
This drill was the least expensive in the store that day, so I bought it. It's very light weight and very easy to hold. i am a 60 year old woman and not as strong as I use to be. I was hanging my tv on a brick wall and didn't think this drill was powerful enough. Surprise! I purchased a kit that had every size anchor and screw. The kit also included drill bits that worked wonders. It was suggested by the employee that helped me. I thought the drill bit was not strong enough and my drill not powerful enough. I was wrong. They both worked great. It only took me a few minutes to drill each hole in the brick wall. I've used it quite a few times since. I am really happy with it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
I bought this drill because I have a cheap cordless one that doesn't do anything. I was going to return it thinking that anytime I needed to use a drill I could always borrow my neighbors. I decided to use it once before returning. It fit well in my hand, wasn't too heavy and seemed 10x's more powerful than my cordless drillmaster. Great value and great quality, I'm now browsing HD's website for more tools from Ryobi. Be sure to join Ryobi Nation for some great DIY ideas!
I have used electric tools a little before but this was the first one I owned. I was concerned that it wouldn't work and be a waste of money but was pleasantly surprised. I used it for a few household items and it worked well, even when I needed to drill through metal (thin).
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
Nice little drill. can't beat it on price. Someone left a review that the chuck would not accept a 3/8 inch drill bit. Well I can only speak for the drill I have and it will accept a 3/8 inch drill. Heck it will even accept and hold a 25/64 drill bit.
Pros: Powerful, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
I mainly bought this drill for household repairs and other simple insignificant things such as polishing my rims so I wouldn't have to burn out my Makita 3/8 drill, mainly for my rims though. I could also let other people use this without worrying about it so much. This drill has an Amazing amount of power, even as much as my Makita. I've used and put this drill through a lot of abuse, because it has three years warranty, and it's still going strong. I've used it to drill thick screws through cement backer board to wooden studs when I was rebuilding a shower, I've used it to screw up drywall also but that's light duty, I've used it to drill holes in all sorts of wood, and Most Importantly, I've used THIS DRILL, with a 1/2'' hole saw bit to drill through 4x4 posts of pressure treated lumber!! This drill is my new favorite drill, I absolutely love it. Buy it, you won't regret it. And it has a really high speed which usually takes away from a drill's torque or power, but not this baby.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting
The keyless chuck is very difficult to tighten. There is no way to get a good enough grip on it in order to tighten it sufficiently to keep the bits from slipping inside it during use. Totally useless for drilling steel, it may possibly be of some use in drilling plastic, wood, or other soft material only. Additionally, the motor gets very warm during use. I returned this drill for a refund and will search for another that actually holds the drill bits tightly. I may have to get one with a keyed Jacobs chuck, but these are usually on the larger 1/2" drills or the more expensive 3/8" units.
Cons: Difficult to Use, chuck will not tighten enough
I love all my Ryobi tools, but this one is simply my favorite. No need for a complex, expensive drill when it comes to reliability. It is extremely durable, comes in a case of its own, and all for just $29.99. Everyone should have at least one VSR corded drill. It's simplicity alone is essential to any workshop. So far, it has outperformed my old Craftman, which I gave back to my father. I'm no sponsor for cheap gadgets, and this one's not one of them. It may be a drill that comes cheap, but it sure isn't a cheap drill. P.S.> Last Job--Drilled fast through a cast-iron toilet flange and well into the concrete below with ryobi's own hex 1/8 drill bit.
I had mine for a couple years and it worked alright but wasn't very powerful. Mine eventually died but only after I abused it pretty badly. I would recommend this for light use with wood and other soft materials such as plastics and thin metals.
I wanted a corded combo product with a cord. Since all my DYI projects are small and minimal, drill a whole to mount a bracket and attach the bracket, I did not want nor need a battery powered tool and have to worry if it is charged when I need it. This combo has been perfect. Light weight, easy to use. The only drawback is that the speed is controlled by pressure on the trigger. However, it is less than $30 which is a winner for me. With the storage case I am always able to have my drill/driver and necessary bits in one place.
Pros: Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Durable, Powerful, Light Weight, storage case included
