Don’t bother, probably fine for basic home use but there are sales on better brands all the time

yes you are correct, this is not a professional set, hence the price point.

How does this compare to Ryobi P1832?

I can't speak to the quality of the Craftsman line; IIRC there's little connection to the tools from the Sears days. However, I've been using Ryobi tools for years and have found them to have a good balance of price and quality for household use.

it is a good set for home DIY use, weekend use.

Higher end brushless tools cost way more.

18v = 20v, it’s a marketing gimmick. DeWalt and Craftsman rate their batteries using maximum voltage (the voltage it puts out in the first few seconds off the charger), whereas everyone else uses their nominal voltage, the voltage you’ll see running the battery for most of it’s life. Yep, it’s super misleading and terrible.

I got sort of lucky, Home Depot https://www.homedepot.ca/product/bosch- ... 1001180315 has it on sale for $99.00. It's sold out but I tried to get Lowe's to price match and they did it and beat it by 10%. I think it'll basically depend on the associate you get to deal with.

None whatsoever, they're the same basic battery technology with 5 cells (or a multiple of 5) rated for 3.6V nominal or 4.0V maximum. Charge your Ryobi/Milwaukee/etc 18V batteries to full capacity and you have a 20V "maximum" battery .

I have quite a few Craftsman 20v tools... sometimes they are on sale on amazon for just ridiculous prices... for example I got 4ah 20v craftsman batteries for $34, bought 3 of them (max i could order). Their LED lights are excellent and very tough built, paid like $16 for the handheld, and $23 for the floor/mount one. Cordless vacuum i got for $33, excellent lower power vacuum.

Cordless tools i have a single set... https://www.lowes.ca/product/power-tool ... ed-1056463

I got it on rona clearance for $110. It is a fantastic set... I also have a bosch gen2 freak impact and would put the craftsman 20v (made in usa) version just a bit below it.
