Riggid X4 Impact at Home Depot vs Riggid X5

I just bought the Riggid X4 Impact at Home Depot for $94. I just noticed that Riggid came out with the X5 in March. Has three speeds ect. Home depot dies not sell the X5 yet I can find it on ebay.

The X5 impact has 3 speeds and possibly a new motor.

Has anyone upgraded from the X4 Impact to the X5? Was it worth it?

All these low end drills like Dewalt, Makita, Milwaukee, Ridgid etc. are equally crappy and sufficient for puttering around the house.

I bought 2 of the X4 kits, one for home and one for work last year because of the lifetime warranty which includes the battery, tool and charger. No regrets. Nobody matches Ridgids warranty that I know of.

I've done a bajillion renos with my RIDGID tools - any of those will do. Yeah, some are more reliable than others, but for someone who does a small reno or whatever, it won't matter at all.

OP, if you're just a DIY weekend warrior, I wouldn't worry about whether you have the X4 or the X5. Hell, I have years old Canadian Tire power tools that still work and do the job just fine. The only thing I recommend is that you follow Rigid's warranty registration to the tee, otherwise they will deny your lifetime warranty.
