Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ActivelyRetired Light and powerful
I love this drill. It is about half the weight of my other 18 volt drill and the smaller overall dimensions allow me to work in areas I couldn't get into before. It has great torque and the two-speed range makes driving screws and drilling pretty easy. The LED work light facing the work area is a definite plus.The kit included 2 batteries and a charger and it all came in a practical high-impact plastic case. I was fortunate to get it on sale, but the regular price would still be a good buy for someone who regularly uses a power drill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kb01 It works and is light
The drill is light and works well. For simple/easy/light work around the house, all I notice (vs a previous ryobi one 18v) is that this is lighter and smaller. I have not used it all that much yet though. The battery must be good. It is still on its first charge. I put the extra battery (in baggie) in the fridge so it would age under a less stressful temperature than it would get in the garage.
I like how everything fits into the case, though the case is a bit large.
Bosch sent back a rebate in a timely fashion.

I teach Applied Practical Arts and I like the fact that there is a spare battery. The battery life is great but when it stops working it happens with little warning. I liked them well enough to add to my collection

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AtlHunter Not much speed or power...
I'm a huge Bosch tools fan. My two criticisms of this purchase are:
1. Not much speed/power (this works fine as a driver, but not a drill) - this will end up being a glorified power screwdriver.
2. Lowe's had this much cheaper than HD. I bought it at HD because it was on sale; two weeks later it was on sale at Lowe's for even less.
If I could do it all over again, I would not purchase this drill; it's average at best. I still defer to my Dewalt for serious work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TG34 Tremendous value!
My Bosch drill has been in the house for less than 1 month, and I already see that it is capable of performing the tasks that I require. I am in the midst of remodeling a bathroom, and this drill is doing everything that I ask of it.
The drill was ordered with 1.3 Ah batteries, but shipped with 1.5 Ah batteries, that include a fuel gauge, which is kind of handy, but wouldn't have been a deal breaker.

This is my first Li-ion purchase. Great so far! Nice to have a battery operated device stay fully charged and ready to go weeks down the road.
