Well if you find a 40 off 200 coupon online (just google it) you could get this down to $189

I'd say Kobalt is similar to sightly better than Ryobi in terms of quality, but it depends on the tool. Either are certainly adequate for a DIYer and they're a lot cheaper to add to than any of the pro-grade lines. The only real downside to this set is the single battery. I would definitely consider adding 1-2 4ah or better batteries right away to make these usable for more serious projects.

Ya I'll have to look into the 4ah battery prices. I have some old Ryobi stuff so I'm leaning more toward just adding to that, but this Kobalt set looks good.

This is true, but I've heard some of those coupon codes are scams.

I have this exact set. Some will dig on kobalt stuff, I happen to love it. Definitely invest in a few more batteries... They're VERY inexpensive compared to others. The capability of these tools will far exceed most anything a normal homeowner can dish out. The warranty is really what takes the cake. No questions asked, replacement or money back. Batteries are 3 years, tools are 5. I had kobalts old 18v line. After nearly 5 years, the Sawzall developed an issue (likely to my abuse). Walked in lowes and they gave me a complete refund on the entire toolkit because they no longer stocked it, I put the money towards this kit in return. Hope this helps

Now that's a warranty! Most manufacturers require an original receipt and you have to mail the tool back. Which might be a deal breaker for some if shipping cost alone is more expensive than your tool! EEK!

Lowe's tool warranty is awesome. I've swapped out a broken adjustable wrench twice over last 4 years (use all day every day at work). Second time I didn't have a receipt so they just got my license info and swapped the 3 wrench kit. Love that.

Much better than Ryobi. So far I love mine. They are very solid.

Waaaaaay better. They're genuinely good tools, just too late in the game to catch on. Anyone who was going to spend what the wanted for tools was going to go with something red, yellow, or teal. For this price, with the great warranty, you're getting way better tools than you deserve. The batteries are cheap, especially the 1.5ah for ten bucks, I'd grab a few of those for the drill and impact and bigger ones for the saws. They used to have a no questions asked 1 year return policy too. I had bought an original kit when it came out, but returned it for Milwaukee because they had much better options in a couple key tools for me, mainly the fuel impact wrench. That and my dad upgraded his saw and sold me the old one for cheap. But yea, these tools are an amazing deal for this price.

One reason I think this kit is nice is the 7-1/4" circular saw. Most affordable kits like this offer the 5-1/2" saw.

It's a 6.5" saw with a low arbor axis for the same cut depth as 7.25".

This is a helluva deal. I'm thrilled with my Kobalt tools. Great warranty, nice tool selection. Each tool has some real thought put into it (precision mode on impact driver, cut depth on circular saw, etc).

I will say that this is the kit with the lesser drill and impact driver. I'd sell those off and get the drill/impact kit with the better drills (Jacobs Chuck on drill and precision impact mode on the driver).

Milwaukee stuff is great but for my homeowner use, I can't really say I notice a difference except in price.
