Pretty sure I bought this kit at this price back when it was blue. This saw does well cutting 1x4 or thin sheet goods. I like the idea of this kit as a starter better than the standard drill and impact because for people just starting out the drill and impact driver are mostly redundant but the saw adds a whole new dimension of work you can do.

only has one battery. They kit for $130 with an additional saw, flashlight and extra battery is worth considering IMO.

If you rarely need these tools, it's fine.

But if you do bigger projects or plan to run the circular saw for more than a few cuts, you want more/better batteries. If you make a few cuts and have to stop to charge the saw, you aren't efficient.

Tool snobs only want to buy brushless now. And while they're definitely better, you can do a lot with brushed tools, too. But the circular saw is one of those tools where the added power makes a big difference.

The larger starter kits offer more useful tools at the discounted price than starting really small and one-offing tools as you need them.

Anybody who has been buying kits and bundles to get their tool cost down has already resold a dozen drills and circular saws, so this deal isn't going to get them excited.

Most of projects I do see now consists cutting planks/studs/PVC pipe requiring not more than 15 cuts per project...Drill would be pretty much same ..I don't expect to work on projects that require impact drill..least for now.Idea is that tools dont need stay on for more duration but need higger power,to get job done quickly. So how much does 18v vs 20v difference be realistically ?

I'm not talking volts. I'm talking amps. That circular saw is going to eat that 1.3Ah battery quickly.

If it works for you, great. You asked why there was little love for this deal. I provided reasons.

The problem with the saw in this bundle is that while it will do some things fine but for other things it's going to be undersized or underpowered. Back when these 5.5" circular saws were introduced, they were known as "trim saws" to reflect their intended use. Though most manufacturers have dropped that moniker, they won't handle more than light duty work.

If I were selecting tools for basic household tasks, I'd start with a basic drill/impact driver bundle. Yes, it's 2 tools that on the surface do the same thing, but they do it differently. It's nice to be able to have 1 tool set up to drill and another to drive to reduce the number of bit swaps needed. Also, an impact driver is going to be less likely to "cam out" (the bit slips out of the screw) than a drill.

For a beginners saw, I'd go with something corded. A jigsaw would probably be my first choice as it's lightweight, inexpensive, and versatile.

20v tools tend to actually be 18v tools rated at max of 20...not constant 20..that is the case for dewalt

Yes, I am fairly certain there is no difference between 20V and 18V (meaning both have the same number of cells). 20V ones are marketing the max voltage whereas 18V ones are marketing the nominal voltage. Ryobi's 40V tools really just have two 18V batteries inside; doing the math on the Wh rating shows that.
