Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pilot12345 Fantastic tool!
This is perhaps the best power tool I've ever bought. It has tons of torque (it'll twist the head off of a big screw if you let it) but the trigger makes it easy and intuitive to control. I've used it a lot on a home remodeling project, doing everything from pulling framed walls together with 4" long screws to screwing drywall, and it's done an awesome job of everything I've tried it on.
The only thing I can find to complain about is that changing modes from impact to drill is difficult - the selector lever is recessed and can be grumpy about moving. A little squeeze of the trigger will typically get it done, but it's not as easy as I'd like.
Other than that minor inconvenience, it's a fantastic tool. Just be sure you get good bits for it - it has plenty of torque to rip apart cheap bits in short order. Don't ask me how I learned that one, but fortunately I had safety glasses on!

I use this down at the boat slip where there no electric. I have put in the 3/8" Square drive and driven 4" galvanized lag bolts in to the dock. Couldn't do without it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Magpie67 super versatility!!
Bought this for the impact feature, but was pleasantly surprised by it's versatility as a ulti-speed driver and the tree leds to light up the work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gmoney worth every penny
This is the second 26618-01 that i have purchased. The first one is still running great with no problems at all. Gets used 5-6 days a week at my job in all weather conditions. Loved it so much i bought another one. Batteries work great unless it gets really cold outside...but thats a lithium ion thing not a bosch thing. Every lithium tool ive ever owned had a problem charging when it gets really cold. This is the fourth overall bosch tool ive owned and never had a problem with any of them. Buy one you will be happy with its performance.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Not what I expected.
I bought this because I have used Bosch Batt. drills that the company bought and was very pleased with them. I used it for a few days without any problem, then i tried to put an auger bit through an untreated 2x4 and smoke came out the back end. Called Bosch and they sent me a new one; no questions asked. Received the new one and it did the same thing. I still believe that Bosch makes top quality tools. Just not this one, at least for me. Will not keep me from buying Bosch in the future. Customer service was top notch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DavidM Powerful, yet sensitive (trigger)
This tool packs a ton of power. I don't own this tool, but I was borrowing it. It easily handled the 3.5 inch decking screws I was using. What I like about this impact driver, compared to some others I have used is that the trigger is not either a full on or full off. It has lots of variation in between. With my impact driver, even gently tapping the trigger applies all the power and torque and trashes the screw before you even get started. This is a great driver. The best one I've ever used (of about 4-5 different brands).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Howard31 AWESOME TOOL!!!!
I bought this tool over a year ago and use it everyday at work!! I do garage door work. I have only had to send it in to get fixed once! The warranty is awesome, I called and they told me were to take it and they fixed it no charge and that was after a year of use!!!! I have run other brands and none have lasted more then a couple of months before needing repair!!!!!! I HIGHLY recommend this product!! I am in process of changing all of my cordless to Bosch to make an awesome tool!!!!
