Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Bought this drill as it had all the features I was looking for and the price was $50 less than the Dewalt's/Mikita's of the world. I used it MAYBE 6 times over a 8 month period and no real heavy projects, just small stuff around the house. I was putting together an outdoor patio set and the gears stripped all of the sudden. Home Depot said they would not take it back after 90 days and now I am going to have to work through the 1 year manufacture warranty. Not happy at all... June 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drill I have been extremely pleased with this drill. I did question the purchase but the price was right at the time and I needed it quickly. I have owned this drill for four years and usage has ranged from light to medium duty. I have used this to sheetrock a 3 stall garage and a 1200 SQF basement. Still going strong. The drill is light to handle and with surprisingly long lasting batteries. I have owned many other brands over the years including Porter Cable, Craftsman, Ryobi, Delta, etc. This is my all-time favorite. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Gift Gave as a gift to my brother; he loves it & uses it in his new home weekly! January 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shocked that B&D made a drill this great Growing up most have come to know B&D makes low cost products that are typically not work horses. About a year ago Walmart had a B&D 18v drill on sale for $19. I could not pass that up. I used the drill for a basement remodel, and it it worked just great. Now the battery is at it's end and i am looking for another with the latest technology batteries. I bought this and i was shocked at how light it was. Far lighter than my other 2 more expensive name brand drills. Very happy with this new drill. If i was forced to complain about anything would be i wish the torq settings used the old style 1-24 settings. This new drill has images like screws and drill bits to adjust the torq. Its no big deal, but i prefer the numbers better. August 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good bargain I'm a female, handy with tools, do most of my own simple home projects. I have an older small driver with the old style batteries, always dead, or not enough power. This was an upgrade for me, at a decent price. I'm sure it will serve my intermittent needs well, probably not a high-end contractors tool, but just what I need. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light enough for my wife to use! I pulled it out of the shipping box and put it right to work. I used it for five minutes, didn't miss a beat. Most of my chores don't require a lot of time or usage. I have many other B & D power tools and they all use the same battery. Must have 7 or 8 by now, so I can keep going if needed. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worth the money Well worth the money got it on sale. not to big and not to small nice power. Would definitely buy another , only if it came with a 1/2" chuck would make it better has plenty enough power to handle it September 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleanty of pwer & battery lasts Great deal for the price. Impressed with the battery life. September 30, 2014
