Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jmac1074 Great Combo!
The impact driver drives screws like a champ, even into hardwoods. My only complaint about it is a slight burning smell when at max RPM, which other reviewers have noticed. Not a big deal though, as fas as I can tell.
Drill is great as a standard cordless drill, but as a hammerdrill drilling into stone, concrete, etc it just doesn't quite have the power. Don't get me wrong it can handle the job, but it takes a fairly long time to drill holes into hard surfaces.
As someone who needed both a drill and a hammerdrill, this was a great way to save some money, and as I don't need hammerdrill functionality very often. I wouldn't suggest buying this for anything other than that reason, especially not for the hammerdrill feature alone.
But very happy with the purchase, DeWalt makes great, rugged tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wstcstlogger excellent product
I`ve been using these 2 tools constantly for the last 6 months, especially the impact driver. It can drive 6inch lagbolts into fir planks in seconds and lasts about 3 hours on one charge with steady use.The batteries recharge in less than 30 minutes.I`ve dropped both of them off 6 foot ladders onto concrete with no discernable damage.The driver is rather loud so hearing protection is recommended. You can`t go wrong with these tools in my opinion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 It's Dewalt. Nuff said. Get er done!
Theres a reason these tools cost $ my friends. If you use em regularly, want em to last, and get the job done. Dewalt is the real deal.
Drop it from 15 feet in the air, pick it up, put the battery back in and get back to it. Try that with anything else....

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jason6434 Burning Smell From Impact Driver
When I first used the Impact Driver, there was a very distinct burning smell! I thought maybe because it was new, it just needed to be run a bit more. But after using it for a while, the burn smell is still there.
The hammerdrill works great though.
Unfortunately, I expected a bit more from Dewalt, and will be returning this kit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grunt Excellent so far
I have borrowed a few Dewalt tools and friends and family members have other brands. This was my first Dewalt purchase and will not be my last.
Two useful tools in one hard case, fast charging and lots of power. I would rate higher if I would have gotten to use them more before this review.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JimB good quality and price fair.
You need to let people know that when the battery is low, the tool just quits. It doesn't slow down. I thought the tool broke, till I changed battery.
