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
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
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 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!
Solid all around construction of drill.. I would've liked a metal chuck more but for the price, who's complaining. Aside from that bit, the drill is perfect for any novice craftsman or just as a throw around on a site. I remodel commercially, and for the price I was satisfied with the amount of power the drill puts out. A vsr At 4.5 amps and 1600 rpms, it can hold it's own when compared to the pricier cordless models out there... Again for the money you're getting a great deal, and so far for me, a reliable product.
Needed a corded drill for some of the heavier jobs around the house like drilling in to concrete. This drill stepped up to the task with ease. Lightweight, easy to use. Would recommend this to any novice DIYer.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Light Weight
Drill is lightweight and powerful. I like things simple and this fits the bill. No batteries just plug it in. Old school but I love not having to have a chuck key to switch out blades. LOL, yeah it's been that long since I've shopped drills. If this drill last as long as my Craftsman, it will be the last drill I'll own. (Craftsman drill was murdered by my wife using it to strip a metal porch rail with grinding bit).
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
