Can some expert shed some light on how these compares to others (based on your experience)?

The normal price for this drill set is $159, The periodic sale price is $129, and the inflated nobody buys it at this price so we can put it on sale next week for $70 off is $199. With that clarified, I have this set, 4-A*hr batteries, the circ saw, recip saw, and grinder and they are all excellent and come highly recommended.

Kobalt's 24V line compares very well overall especially considering the lower price. I have these tools and would definitely recommend them.

Ridgid, DeWalt non-XR, Craftsman v20 / PorterCable v20, Ryobi

Craftsman c19, Skil, Harbor Freight/Walmart anything battery powered

Fanboys: sorry in advance, but the products' pricing generally bears this out. Ryobi is a light-duty homeowner-grade brand (same co as Milwaukee (top), and Ridgid (middle-grade)). It comes down to what you're using it for and how much you want to spend. Black Friday, Fathers' Day, and Labor Day are the best sales for power tools at box stores.

I have a bunch of kobalt tools at this point. Drill, impact driver, recip saw, circ saw, multi tool, light, orbital sander and ratchet. I have some dewalt xr and ryobi equivalents. Performance wise I would say they are on par with dewalt xr, and significantly better than ryobi non brushless (I don't have any ryobi brushless). I got all of mine on good sales (6 tool for 112, orbital sander for 59, and ratchet for 129 with 4ah and 2ah kit). At 130 for a brushless drill and driver kit, rarely if ever would you find a similar deal for higher end tools. The kobalt 24v line is definitely a great line to get into, and ryobi is great for their oddball tools (vacuums, chemical sprayer, nailers, etc).

Good assessment/order of all the brands. There's also the new Kobalt XTR 24V line which seems to compete well with the Milwaukee Fuel/Makita LXT lines. Probably just a tick behind them, at the top of your mid tier list though.

Torn on this because I like the deal but I've been holding out that this comes back into stock.

I suggest handling both at least first, assuming your state is not on stay at home. With covid there probably won't be any functional displays but you should be able to handle nonfunctional displays. I love everything about the m12 you are looking at except the handle angle. It's a deal breaker for me. I much prefer more perpendicular or standing straight up drills and impacts. Just dont like the feel when drilling or driving things facing me but higher than my head my or straight down around waist level. It's just what I prefer, m12 are great products but figure out what you prefer because it's not always about numbers and what someone else uses.

Thanks for the advice. My next purchase will be my first wireless drill. I currently use a craftsman power drill from the 1990s and it's just not doing a good job anymore. So I want to upgrade but I don't want to find myself in a situation where I upgrade and then I have to replace it three years later. I hear that the Milwaukee's are very good for beginner to medium cordless drill.

In my experience Ridgid Octane performs pretty similarly to Milwaukee M18 Fuel. Do you find some exceptions to that?

I agree normal Ridgid < normal Milwaukee.

I am pleased with the performance of my kobalt 24v tools and have no complaints, but this is not a particularly outstanding price.
