Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful drill. I have to give the Black and decker electric drills their due. This drill is very powerful, and has a lot of low end torque .. That torque helps to get those stubborn screws in pressure treated wood or any other treated stubborn wood. September 28, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good overall with one big flaw This is a good product with adequate torque with one big flaw. The supporting handle has the tendency to loose its grip on the drill when working on an application that requires high torque. This results in only one hand supporting the drill/driver. If the hand is not strong enough, the drill/driver will swing back and may sprain the wrist. If the job does not require high torque, this is a good drill. All other parts are of good quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Performance at a Reasonable Price This is a rock-solid economical drill/driver. It's keyed 1/2" chuck is superior to clutch-lock style chucks. It is easily reversable and it's variable speed trigger is spot-on has gearing which produces high torque at 800 RPMs......I easily drilled a 1/2" hole into 6" of concrete basement floor with no stall or lug-down. There is no hassle with uncharged batteries..just plug it in. June 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by it feels sturdy and spins I just got it and was able to use it with a metal brush attachment to clean rust off of a basketball pole before I repaint it. It worked well. October 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Liked it at first but ... I liked this drill at first, since it seems solidly built and has great torgue. But after using it just a couple of times, the directional button (the button to change from forward to reverse drilling) started to act up. It seems to be extremely sensitive and will pop out of place and into 'neutral', time and time again. Very frustrating. I took it back to Home Depot to exchange for another one. We'll see how long this new one lasts. September 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good recommendation I needed a moderately priced drill for the basics and asked the salesperson at the store for his recommendation. It was important for me to have a plug in drill because I don't need battery feed drill. It has performed with out issue. January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase Best bang for the buck! The drill is light, powerful and easily accepts various drill sizes. I'm very happy with this product. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price; pretty good quality regardless For only $40, this was a great buy. I've been slowly working on a water equipment shed (and will be doing a few other small outbuilding projects after this one) but only had a cordless drill that would typically die within 3 hours of working on the shed... and that included a lot of time measuring and cutting; I'd estimate it would put in about 50 2 1/2" screws (including pre-drilling) before having to be charged again (and I don't have a spare battery). After wasting time, I decided I was going to get a corded one. I'm not a crazy heavy user or a contractor, so a cheap one that was decently reviewed would be fine. I found the B&D DR560 and was shocked at the price, since I was expecting to pay something closer to $100. The build quality seems pretty good; the handle is just a clamping plastic one, but it works. Some parts of the drill feel like they could have been made out of metal of some sort and improved the overall build quality... but for $40, it's great. The power is good, too. Drilling and driving goes way faster with this than with the cordless. The variable speed trigger is not quite as fluid as my cordless... but it works fine; I am not doing fine drill work, I'm just drilling holes and putting screws in them, and for that it is more than adequate. Having the 1/2" shank will likely come in handy at some point, especially if I have to use some larger paddle bits. Overall, I would totally recommend this drill for anyone that isn't going to be using it every day for the next year; for me, who will probably use it maybe 15 days out of a year but will probably end up trying to cram multiple hours of use on a single Saturday, it seems like a great buy.
