Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FN40 Worst tool buy I ever made
I bought this drill because I wanted a smaller cordless drill,
The biggest and most annoying problem is the chuck because it simply will not hold drill bits tightly and the bits will start spinning and slipping in the chuck. It is so frustrating and I contacted Black & Decker awhile ago and they sent me a new chuck, and the replacement chuck does the same aggravating thing! I vow I will never buy another Black & Decker tool.
Because of the chuck, I am going to chuck this annoying piece of garbage!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Good for household repairs
Seems nice. Replaced my old (ni-cad) Black and Decker. New one is smaller and lighter and more powerful. LI ion batteries hold a charge longer. Price is good too, cheaper than replacing the batteries in my old discontinued model.
I just like to have one for home repairs, occasional use. I've used it twice since getting it. May not be the best choice for someone who works with it all day or more regularly than me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TP Would like a little more power
The drill is easy to use and lightweight. Works well for jobs not requiring extra power like driving screws deep into wood studs or joists. Short on power is my negative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NoMilitaryDiscountOnline Great Little Drill
Great all around drill for not too much money. I bought a new home and have done about 100 jobs of hanging and fixing and it always does what is intended. First one was stolen by a worker and I replaced with the same exact drill.

For the price, a nice dependable item. Only problem is that the handy battery cannot be used in a variety of B & D items. The latest models use a different power arrangement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great torque, balance and battery life
I was in the market for a smaller drill/driver because my trusty Ryobi 18V was just too big for some jobs. I considered the Milwaukee M12 (which I've used and is a great piece of equipment). I just didn't want to drop a hundred bucks on it.
The B&D 12V Li is a fantastic driver. I do handyman and cabinetry work and wanted something dedicated as a driver. I use the Kreg K4 system and getting into tight places is a must. Plus, you have to be careful when driving the Kreg screws (as well as others) because I learned the hard way that they can strip the hole pretty easily. The torque settings on the B&D are very forgiving and I've quickly learned how it does things. Works great, very light, smaller form factor and like I said, lots of power.
As a drill, it also performs very well. Definitely capable, even with paddle bits.
Overall, it was the perfect solution for what I needed. I definitely recommend this tool.
