Not sure if it's a super deal but seems to be decent price as it's dropped in recent months. I picked one up as I needed it and thought to share. Apologies if it's not a slick deal.

Use to be $199 and dropped to $179 approx month ago and now $159

Selected this particular set because of the COMPACT size of the two tools and how they felt in hand with the smaller batteries (1.5). For me that was the deciding factor vs the brushed set or the standard size brushless set.

Personally for most I don't think brushed vs brushless is going to matter at all in regards to how they will work in getting your projects, etc.. done and how long they'll last.

Includes:
(1) PSBDD01 ONE+ HP 18V Compact Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Drill/Driver
(1) PSBID01 ONE+ HP 18V Compact Brushless 1/4 in. Impact Driver
(2) PBP002 18V 1.5 Ah batteries
(1) 18V charger,
(1) tool bag

I have no opinion as to whether this is a good deal or not, but I will clarify something for those that may be confused by Ryobi's new product lines. They are a bit confusing.
  1. Ryobi is ending the "HP" line of batteries and has a new "High Performance" battery line. The two battery lines are more or less equivalent. There's some internal upgrades and some slight size differences, but that's pretty much it. Both are fine to use interchangeably.
  2. If you are not aware, Ryobi has both a regular 18V battery line, and 18V HP (Now High Performance) battery line. The difference is that the High Performance battery line has two extra electrical contacts to deliver more power to tools that support it.
  3. Ryobi's new line of tools now use the "HP" branding, but it's a bit misleading. Not all tools in the HP line make full use of High Performance (or the old HP) batteries. Some HP tools have the two extra electrical contacts, some do not.
In this particular deal, the tools are from the HP line, but they do not have the two extra electrical contacts. The batteries that are included in this deal are not from the High Performance line of batteries. These tools would not benefit from using High Performance batteries. (You can attach a High Performance battery to one of these tools and use it just fine, the tool just wouldn't make use of the battery's extra power delivery feature.)

Ryobi does sell a drill and impact driver in the HP line that does benefit from using High Performance batteries (and therefore have much higher torque), but they are more expensive. For day-to-day use of the average person, I'm sure these tools are perfectly good.

I hadn't been paying attention to Ryobi's recent product changes, so I was a bit confused and had to look into this myself. Maybe this info will help somebody else.

So what does everyone think, this deal or this one for the non-brushless tools?

Same boat as you. I was thinking of getting that 4 tool combo but someone on another thread said it's worth getting the brushless. It's a big difference.

That's why I'm still on the fence. But I do know that brushless is more powerful. Like they say, buy once cry once.

You do NOT need brushless unless you are using the tools constantly (contractor). These are perfectly fine for a homeowner or for occasional use. They will give you years of service and the entry-level Ryobi line of tools is the best bang for the buck. The 4-piece for $129 or the 6-piece for $199 are the best deals to start out with

Go with the brushless. The other tools you can get for fairly cheap from directtoolsoutlet. I have two cabinets of ryobi tools/lights/fans from that site. Just add ryobi to your slickdeals keywords. Direct tools blemished means they are new and you still get the warranty. Home Depot has exclusive rights to sell New ryobi.

Just out of curiosity, what prices do you recall seeing or getting from DTO? Specifically looking for a drill/driver and an impact driver plus some batteries (starting from scratch here), with maybe some other odds and ends tools here and there. Purchased the 4 tools for $129 but debating if there's a better deal to be had. Thanks

I agree that the less-expensive, brushed tools are just fine. However, the brushless tools are also higher-quality overall, in my opinion. I have a bit of both.

I selected this particular set because of the COMPACT size of the two tools and how they felt in hand with the smaller batteries (1.5). For me that was the deciding factor - the actual size of the tools themselves and of course being able to use the Ryobi batteries with other Ryobi tools I have.

Personally for most I don't think brushed vs brushless is going to matter at all in regards to how they will work in getting your projects, etc.. done and how long they'll last (for most people using at home).

Get whichever you can happily afford. I've had the standard ones and I've been able to do a ton of great home renovations (built two kitchens, build deck stairs, etc. etc.) and both the standard drill and impact driver performed admirably.
That said, after all that work I am hoping to buy the brushless ones! Why? Mostly because of the more compact design. In all that work I did, I often wished my tools were lighter or smaller/shorter, to fit under cabinets or between boards better, to carry up a ladder, etc. So I don't yet have brushless, but wish I did! Either set will serve you well, I'm pretty sure the brushless will cost more but perform somewhat better and fit in tighter spaces.

just checked my receipt on this. i picked this up on 1/31/21 for 139- $10 off 100 coupon = $129. Actually my gf bought it as a bday gift. This deal isnt that bad, but its been better.

Great set though. The impact even has a little light on it. i used it for installing lag bolts for a tv wall mount and regularly use it for removing the underbody cardboard panel for oil changes.

thats true, but I would rather have the two tools i need and actually use in brusheless than a set with tools i don't need brushed. The average home owner or DIYer might not need a saw or some crappy light.

Does anyone think its worth it to just get the drill for $100? They have it on sale with two batteries. I bought it, and I am considering getting this but I figure most jobs a drill will be good enough to use. Any thoughts would help, thanks!

This is a good deal on an outstanding drill and impact driver. Even if you do not routinely need brushless tools, I think getting brushless in drill/driver is one that is worth getting.

These are "slimmer" batteries and make these two tools much more compact, as someone else stated.

Highly recommend.
