Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ed All Around Good Drill
When I first obtained the drill I was concerned with the 14.4 volts being very weak compared to my large 18v Kobat drill. My concerns were quickly dismissed by the drill's performance during a full day's work. I like the torque power to drive-in wood screws flush with the material. The drill has good balance, smooth power and speed. It's about the same footprint at my 18v Dewalt impact driver. No frills, no fancy accessories, just a good working and reliable drill. After years of use (7years), a battery replacement at Interstate Batteries and the drill is still kicking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wdm1961 Like the Drill, Hate the Batteries
Drill has worked well for about 5 years of home/rental remodeling projects. Decent power, and I like the size and balance. The build quality and design are pretty good; the trigger, charger, battery clip and chuck are all easy to operate and effective. Big Issue However; I've spent as much (or more) on replacing 3 batteries as I did on buying the drill, so overall it's just not a good value. I won't buy another, so time for a different brand, with a better battery.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dewaltguy Drill is fantastic, but batteries are not
I read other reviews on this product and agree that the drill is amazing. Always performs well. I have had it for probably 3 years now and love it. I do not however love the batteries. I have had so much trouble with these batteries. Two have just stopped holding a charge and my third is now starting to lose the charge. This does not make me happy. I would recommend the drill, but I feel the need to mention the battery issue I have had although it doesnt seem like any others have had this problem, or they posted when they first bought the drill. These batteries are not cheap!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eeey2k DeWalt 14.4 Compact Drill Kit
I have had mine only a few weeks but it is the power tool I have waited for all my life. The balance is perfect and the weight is very manageable. I can't wait to tackle the few household chores I have lined up for it. I have had at least three people tell me DeWalt is the best out there, and one of them was the professional redoing my kitchen. He said they cost a little more, but it will last longer than I will. That was enough for me. I am very excited to own a tool I have wanted for as long as I can remember.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ElvishPrincess We received this drill as a gift last year. The trigger has broken on it recently and you've got to press it a few times to get it to turn on and because of that it now only has two speeds on and off. However its been our first drill of choose durring our one year home renovation so I'm guessing we've worn it out?? We will be replacing it with the same model however because it is great to work with.

I purchased this drill about 2 months ago and love it. It is perfectly balanced and has all of the drilling power you need. I have always purchased Dewalt power tools and swear by them. You wont be disappointed with this drill. I have used it for everything. Thanks Dewalt and Home Depot! It was also priced right as well. -Jim

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Perfect for all around the house projects
First cordless drill for our first house, and it does everything I need it to, reattaching the hinges for the fence gate to the posts, hanging track lighting, building horseshoe pits, and more. The weight is fine, charge time is about an hour from drained, and comes with a spare battery. Torque and power are perfect. I would recommend this to anyone.
