Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jsrob25 Worthless chuck
Wanted to like this drill, but overall this is not a good drill due solely to the chuck. Battery life, hand-feel, motor seem very good, but with drill bits always coming loose or being left in wood (even pine 2x4's), makes this drill useless. I am an experienced DIYer and even simple woodworking projects, i.e. building a workbench and tables for a model train layout, were a challenge using this drill. I had to dig out my old Craftsman to finish one job, which I hate but at least it held the bits. I have used previous Dewalt drills and love all my other Dewalt products, but this is by far the worst Dewalt product and worst overall drill I've used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Met or exceeded expectations
The Dewalt DCD790B Compact Drill/Drive and the Dewalt tool family are superior. They may be a little pricey but the old saying holds true, "You get what you pay for". This is the 20volt tool. I do not know if the others hold a charge as well but, the size and shape are much more pleasing than the 18v version. Could not be happier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DeWaltGuy Great drill, but refurbished
The drill is great. Keeps up with the older 18v hammer drill, unlike the non brushless 20v drill. Not much to say besides pickup a 3.0 or even a 4.0 AH battery if you're going to use all day.
The only reason it got 4 stars and not 5 is because this product was refurbished. I was expecting a brand new item. It just would've been nice if the refurbished bit was in the description. How do I know it wasn't brand new? Resealed box, dings/scratches on drill, and missing warranty card. Now you've been told.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mark As expected
Not much to say. My expectations were high and it has met these. Plenty of power and minimal run-out. Which is what I was looking for

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thaddaeus Excellent Drill
Excellent power in a slightly compact package. I already had 3Ah batteries from my brushless impact driver(also excellent) so this was perfect. Drilled about 100 1/2" holes through landscape timbers 2 timbers thick.
