It depends on what you do. As I said in my first post, my B&D Quantum 120 went 20 years. It still is a good drill, but my needs have grown. If you are drilling pine with 3/8" or less, and driving #8 or less wood screws into pine, it works great. It also works great drilling 1/8" mild steel, and aluminum with 3/16" or larger bits. In drilling 3/8 holes into treated 4x4, it stalls, and uses battery quickly. I am now drilling into oak, and tool steel. I'm using smaller bits in aluminum. When drilling with small bits, if too slow, they snap.
Ryobi may work for you, if your materials and bits fall into the mild use range. But, the cheapest Ryobi, at HD, is $79. The cheapest Dewalt, albeit NiCad, is $89. Cheapest Li-Ion Dewalt is $119. Cheapest Rigid is $139.
In visiting construction sites and industrial sites, I see Dewalt, Milwaukee, Rigid, Bosch, rarely some Makita. Mostly Dewalt and Rigid. When I ask the workers, they all say the same thing. Why waste money on tools that won't hold up? Their job is to do their job, not run to the hardware store after another drill.
In 1974, I bought a Sansui 8 Deluxe stereo receiver. The salesman told me if I spent slightly more than I planned, I'd be happier with the higher end product longer. I still use that stereo. Pay the higher price for the better drill, unless you need light (as in not heavy). Yeah, you'll feel "stung" for a few days, but a short time later, you'll be glad you did.
