Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ricochatrabbitt Best hand held cordless pocket driver
As a screen installer. I have to use a variety of tools. The top of my list is the Bosch PS20-2A. This cordless driver can really take a beating. I have dropped this thing of a balcony, 3 stories up. Good thing it was in the back yard. Lesson learned. I am screaming at myself for destroying a good tool. I picked it up and pulled the trigger. Wow!!!! what a surprise. It worked great. I still have it. My pocket driver came with a holster. The problem is if my mechanic needs to borrow it, there is no way he can hook it on his belt. They need a new handle, with a pop out hook. There when you need it, not when you don't.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great Tool
I've had my PS-20 for over 3 years now and I use it more than any other Drill/Driver I own. Besides using it for normal applications, I also find it invaluable at my reloading bench where I use it to chamfer cartridge mouth's and true the primer pockets. These processes are long and tedious and the tools light weight makes it the perfect for these jobs.
Besides the drills outstanding performance in a huge variety of applications, it's Lithium battery seems to last forever. I absolutely LOVE this tool and would recommend it to anyone.
Please keep making tools like this and I will never purchase another brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eztrigger jack of all drills
I got this as a bonus tool with a 12v oscillating tool and it is now my go to drill! The charge lasts quite a while and the drill packs way more punch than I expected from such a tiny package. Unless I need a chuck or a really strong drive, this drill can do almost anything. I especially like the sensitivity of the trigger. A very light squeeze will turn on the light with no spinning. After that, speed can be applied gradually as you squeeze harder. I find this helpful for working in dark areas and starting hard to start screws at low speeds. This tool is also so lightweight and compact it can go just about anywhere. All in all, I will be getting another one when this one wears out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikeydv Lightweight and powerful!
I was a little weary about this at first, wondering if it would be able to "keep up". Much to my surprise, it did, and it did it well! I'm an Aircraft Technician, some days I pull out hundreds of screws at a time! Some of them get really stuck in there and this lil driver most of the time can torque it out. Those big 18v clunky drill / drivers are a thing of the past for me. Batt life is good, charges quick. If I have to dig for a complaint... the flashlight that came with it, good luck finding a replacement bulb. They can be found, but not eaisly. I give the tool 5 stars!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack001 Worth Every Cent I Paid for It
I've had this tool about a month now and have used it to replace 13 exterior steps to my home as well as to repair a picnic table and an outdoor small table. I pre-drilled all screw holes with the tool and then used it to set all screws (3 1/4" screws in the stairs), along with some 1/4" lag screws in places.
The tool maintained power through all tasks and set all screws easily. The batteries charged quickly.
The quick-change chuck works easily and holds the bits flawlessly.
The one deficiency I found is the placement of the LED light. It would be better positioned at the front of the tool near the chuck. In its current location, it doesn't really light the work space. This is a minor complaint though, since I usually work in daylight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KevinFu Huge power in a compact package.
I was looking for an inexpensive compact driver to supplement a corded hammer drill (for lighter duty projects), and this model has exceeded my expectations. With long battery life, two included batteries and a quick charger, you're never out of juice.
I was a bit skeptical, at first, of the lower torque rating, but in practice, it's highly capable of almost any kind of drilling or driving, including large 3-tooth spade bits and hole saws (provided that they have the 1/4" hex shank).
This is my first Bosch power tool, but won't be my last.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 10thTee Better tools available for the money
I bought this product without realizing that it was a speed loader rather than a twist-to-tighten or loosen device. I prefer the t-t-t option but decided to keep it anyway. My only real concerns now are that the available drill bits are too long for tight space drilling and drilling speeds are too slow. My guess is that it was designed mainly for small nut tightening/loosening or screwdriver operations and it works reasonably well for those operations. All-in-all I think there are better tools on the market for each of these uses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheRipper Outstanding drill and batteries
This review is REALLY late in coming, but I think that makes it more valuable.
I actually bought my drill in 2006, so I don't even know if it's the same model anymore. Bottom line, after 6 years I still have the same batteries, they still hold a nice long charge and the drill has been flawless.
There are no cons to this drill. The size and weight are great. I can actually put it in my back pocket with loose fitting jeans.
The worklight is great. All drills should have one
The speed and power are fine considering the size of the driver.
The quick chuck is fast and convenient, HOWEVER, finding good quality drill bits with hex bases to use with this drill has been challenging. The ones I have are fairly low quality. Other than that, it's really nice to be able to snap in new bits quickly and easily.
