I got this set when they were offering a free extra tool. It's solid and covered with life time warranty.

Some people say DeWalt is better, but I find they are similar. Only thing I could tell is DeWalt usually get lighter weight and have smaller grip..(personal opinion)

If you are an average home owner who is getting just into buying your first set of drills the Rigid kit will fulfill all your needs.
They are solid performers. Many Pros will use them on a daily basis. I believe they still have a free battery replacement program but I heard it can be bit of a run around to get them.
The only Rigid tool I own is a compound Mitre saw. It is 23 years old and still going strong. It had replaced two burn out Deltas.

Personally I do heavy DIY work and remodeling so I choose DeWalt as my base platform.
No complaints. More $ but it's a cost I'm willing to pay

The Ridgid $300 tool combo is made in Tawain,
The Dewalt is a $500 tool combo made in the US,
You can compare the specs of both for yourself or watch this video which appears to answer your question (the review appears to be with similar models):

Thanks for all the input everyone. Will watch the video @tegg2; Thanks! I do prefer the USA built DeWalts but I think Ridgid would be good enough for me and if it goes on sale from $279 or if they offer a free tool, this would be the wiser choice for me as I'm a DIYer and not a pro.

If you go with Team Orange make sure you register your tools, keep your original receipts for that future date when your batteries die and you want to claim their battery warranty.

The second tool is not a drill, it's an impact driver. Much more effective than a drill to drive fasteners.

Here's a vid that explains the difference between both tools:

Your local Home Depot may already have this at $350 in store.

Funny enough, last week I used the local HD $350 price to price match this at Lowe's for $314.

These are fairly heavy duty. Same ones we are currently using at work. I had a set at home too. Fairly powerful and overkill almost for home use.

Overkill for sure. Bought it, sold it. This is almost regular price now, they just juggle the price between retailers. If you don't really need it, I'd say it will come down even more soon.

+1 for Dewalt. I have a 18V XRP hammer drill I bought in 2006 to reno my basement and it's still going strong, but the batteries are toast. I bought a 20V adaptor to use with it, but wanted an impact driver as well, so this kills a few birds with one stone. I just price-matched on their online chat and placed the order to have shipped to my house. $310.14!

Great find. Thanks! Bought 2 sets to replace Rigid ones that are past due and need new batteries - one for home and one for the cottage.

Thanks OP, I price matched and they said they'd issue me a refund for the difference within the next 10-14 days. Also added a coupon for $10 off which I got for signing up for a newsletter.

I just needed something to disassemble some shelves. My 3.6V electric screwdriver wasn't cutting it. This is probably overkill, lol
