I don't think homedepot owns any of them.

From what I gather

Ridgid (by Emerson) - (exclusive contract from TTI for Home Depot)
TTI is the parent company of Ryobi and One World Technologies (OWT).

that being said, ridgid tools do seem more robust.

The reality is that the best thing about them in these types of kits is the fact that, when registered, you get lifetime battery replacement. (which I've already used 2).

The Ryobi Tools brand in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand is owned by Techtronic Industries of Hong Kong, an original equipment manufacturer for brands such as Craftsman, Milwaukee, AEG (AEG Powertools, licensed from Electrolux), Ryobi, Homelite, Hoover US, Dirt Devil, and Vax. Around 1988, Ryobi purchased the assets of the former Diehl Motor Company (a one-time division of Singer Corporation), which was the supplier of Sears Craftsman hand-held power tools. After the purchase, Ryobi continued to supply Sears with power tools. These tools typically had a model number beginning with "315" or "973".

In the United States and Canada, Ryobi power tools are sold primarily through Home Depot and the Internet. In Australia and New Zealand the line is sold exclusively by Bunnings Warehouse. In the UK the power tools are sold at hardware stores.

This kit is great price. The extra battery is nice as well. Even at 1.5Ah these batteries last longer then their competitors. I've used every brand, and the only one that holds a candle anywhere close to Ridgid is Milwaukee.

I have rigids 1/2" hog ring design impact wrench, it's good but was not compatible with Canadian tire maximum chrome sockets (even though you're supposed to use impact based sockets)

If I didn't already have an old Ridgid impact that still works great I'd be all over this. Still kinda tempting but I don't really need it.

Hoping when my (now 10 year old) impact dies in the future I can get it replaced under the lifetime warranty with a newer / more powerful one like this :)

Yup, you will. My batteries were all replaced with the newer versions.

This model have no LED? or maybe it is the older model with the LED at the bottom of the handle?

I was hoping it might be the impact wrench. Still a very good deal though. Maybe add the word 'driver' to the title.

Comparing to the other sets isn't this just regular price?

Will be returning the Dewalt combo that was on sale recently ($161.10 price match with HD).
This driver is actually stronger (2250in-lb vs 1825in-lb) than the Dewalt 20V XR

The best part is if your battery dies all you have to do is to call and you get replacement shipped. Just make sure you register and get customer number. I have replaced both batteries for my old tool already. Very easy process now.
