Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Mothers Day Gift
First lets start off with this drill, my daughter is a single parent and had told my Granddaughters she wanted a drill and bits for Mothers day. Went online to Home Depot, took a look at the choices, cordless or electric, weighed the difference and decided the electric one was the best choice..so with the Home Depot price and the Dewalt brand I thought it was the right choice. I gave the drill an overall rating of excellent, quality, excellent and value excellent ...I have not used the drill personally but when my daughter opened up her gift from her girls she was blown away!!

I decided to go to a corded drill after my cordless would die half way into my project. I was also getting frustrated with drilling because to drill into a wood beam it took me like an hour. On my most recent project it took me 35 minutes to drill a 5/8ths hole that was 5 inches deep. I was hoping this corded drill would be much faster. I would be fine if it took me 10 minutes to drill. But when I used this drill, it literally took me 2 or 3 sections to make that hole. It was fantastic. The drill is very easy to hold. It has a level which is nice. The drill is really quiet. I'm quiet impressed with this drill. It's very powerfull, so if i'm going to use a screw driver function I'll stick with the cordless. But for everything else, this is the tool. Great quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ksbpilot Good choice
If you don't need the convenience And flexibility
Of a battery powered drill, then this is a good choice, especially for the cost.

I bought this because my 2 other 3/8" drills overheated on my heavy duty project. This did the project without a strain. I compared this to the other 3/8" corded drills at Home Depot and this was the highest amp motor in a 3/8" that they offered. It is powerful, smooth, and the chuck has absolutely no wobble. It may cost a little more, but it is worth it in the long run.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zertndo Could be better
This drill has a lot of power. The brand name means quality and it is a good quality drill. However, the variable speed trigger leaves a lot to be desired. It is actuated by the pressure of your finger which makes it fine for plain old drilling, but using it as a screw gun leaves a lot to be desired. When driving screws, unless you just have to power them in, the variable speed trigger is too sensitive to the pressure needed to drive a screw slowly while applying pressure to the drill itself when screwing in hard woods. You will round the inside of more Phillips head screws than you think. I've had variable speed drills with speed dials and thumb stops which are perfect for slow screwing and drilling. Also, it lacks a torque dial which would be a benefit with the irregular variable speed trigger. I love the drill as a whole, but am going to give it away for a more user friendly model. BTW, I have decades of experience in construction including rough carpentry.
