Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyDIY Every Man Needs this combo
The Dewalt drill is very strong and the Lithium-ION battery is lighter weight and the life is impressive. Having the clutch and multiple speeds is the cherry on top.
Now for the real reason I am writing the review, the Impact. I had never heard of an impact until a buddy of mine brought one over to help me hang drywall in my basement a year ago. At first glance, this thing is not too impressive. Upon first use however; I quickly realized this thing was incredible. This little impact drove screws into the proper depth with speed and control. My buddy was able to sink double or triple the screws I was with my old drill. The power and ease of use is unbelievable! My drill was stripping screw even though I was pressing with all my might. Ultimately I had to remove my stripped screws with his Dewalt impact.
Fast forward to a few months ago, I finally broke down and purchased this combo with the new Lithium-ION batteries from Home Depot. I don’t know how I've lived without a this Drill and Impact combo. I've hung shelves, more drywall and built a baby gate since purchasing this.
Ladies, every man needs this Dewalt combo if you want us to complete your honey-do lists!

I purchased this kit about a month and a half ago and have used it on a daily basis for my job as a commercial glazer, installing storefront window frames. I use the 1/4 inch impact to drive some very large screws and haven't found anything that gives it any problems. The drill is a bonus in this kit. It is a standard drill and works well for drilling holes, even with a large multi bit. I have only one complaint, and that is the price of spare batteries. It will be more cost effective to buy another kit than to buy spare batteries. I only hope they will put a reasonable price on the batteries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SLCDIY Go for Li-ion
Just had my old niCad batteries die and of course for $120 you might as well buy new tools. Would go for 20v but the trouble is my finish nailer, receip saw, and circ saw all take 18v. So I'm stuck but at least I can get the better battery type. So for the charge time, weight, and (hopefully) shelf life, I am happy to have the option to upgrade to lithium.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mdjw I use this driver and drill everyday for work it is the best combination of power and is lightweight
The 18 volt lithium battery in the driver goes so much longer than the 12 volt between charges and has all the power you could need

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHALL22 Excellent Performance
Had another name brand cordless drill that finally made its way to that big toolbox in the sky. Found this combo and was very impressed with the price. DeWalt has alway been a brand that demands respect so I decided to get the drill and the impact was just an extra. I have used the drill a dozen times in the month that I have owned it. I am extremely impressed with the life of the Li-ion battery. The suprise for me was the impact. I have used it more than I would ever imagine. It is perfect for drilling holes through any material. For me it is a no-brainer, this is a must buy for any person weather it be contractor or just the weekend home repair.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Great product. Good price.
Powerful driver and drill. No issues with the batteries. They hold a charge a long time and recharge well. Can't beat Dewalt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SBHD It's good enough for Mike Holmes
All my Dewalt tools are 18 volt ni cad, and the tools work great! I needed to replace a bunch of wore out batteries and found the cost excessive. I got two 18 volt lith ion kits for around 400.00 (both on sale) that netted me 4 new tools and 4 new batteries. Donated the old tools to Goodwill.
Once charged these things are AWESOME !!! They are more powerful and like others have observed last way longer than the old set. Also all the batteries are compatable with my least used Dewalt tools so it's a plus all around.
