Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cordless Driver is a bit heavy, but a great value with plenty of power. Purchased item for all around basic use. It's a bit heavy, but holds a charge very well, and has plenty of power for turning even the toughest screws. Bag is a bit small, but holds all items, including charger. Overall, this was a great value. June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! Got this drill as a birthday gift for my husband - he loved it! Says its the best gift I've ever gotten him! The drill and driver charge quickly and are strong, despite being compact. Great product! November 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeWalt Compact Drill with NiCd batteries I chose NiCd instead of Li-ion because of battery safety. I read many drill reviews and some users of Li-ion said batteries got real hot after prolonged use, one or two said they experienced battery failure and one had a battery catch fire. Perhaps heavier but the unit is thus nicely balanced and the extra mass tends to keep the bit or driver steady on target. I purchased for a bathroom remodel project. One battery charge lasted the entire screw-down of backer board - about 400 screws put down within +/- an hour. Over the years, I've owned 2 other DeWalt NiCd battery-powered drills. Each has lasted over 10 years and each got steady use and abuse. Perhaps due to an intelligent charger, or because I tend to drain the batteries well between recharge cycles, the NiCd batteries never seemed to have "memory" problems. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed Perfect drill for my small projects around the house. September 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This drill is great. Affordable and durable. Had the 12V for more than 10 years...this one is a great replacement December 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drill I've owned this drill and 2 batteries for 3 years. The drill has taken a few drops, some paint splashes, dirt, wood putty and looks less yellow every year due to abuse. I recently installed 400 ft of stockade fence with this drill switching between predrilling holes and driving screws, it never skipped a beat. With the two batteries and quick charger, by the time one battery dies, the other is charged. Granted, these batteries don't hold a charge as long as the XRP, they are still great. I would highly recommend this product. It's a bummer it no longer comes with a hard case, but that shouldn't stop you. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unbreakable! Had this drill since 2008 and never failed me. I've dropped it numerous times off an 8' ladder and it's still running strong. Also the battery life is unbelievable! Still only takes about a 1/2 hour to fully charge and it will run all day with moderate use!! No signs of getting weak at all!!! Will definitely buy another one when this starts to slow down, if ever. You will get your moneys worth on this drill. And I bought mine when it was $160. What a deal at $99!!!!!! January 2, 2013
