Nice tool combo set

Review Summary

I bought this set about 18 months ago, and it was my first impact driver and cordless reciprocating saw. Both of these tools are now on my most used used tool list. Once I used an impact driver, I was amazed at how much easier it was to drive screws, instead of using my cordless drill. The reciprocating saw is now used extensively for yard work, using a pruning blade to cut branches and small logs. Much easier than getting out a chainsaw for the small to medium stuff.
The flashlight is bright, and has an adjustable head for the beam. Nice, but not quite as versatile as the old Ryobi flashlight that came with my old combo years ago. The drill is a great tool, with adjustable torque and high and low settings. Have retired the 2 Ryobi sets that I have had for years, and have now added more PC cordless tools - another drill, a right angle drill, and another impact driver so my wife and I can both be working together. At the retail price, I gave it 4 stars, but always look for promotional/sale pricing for these great tools.
