Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Harry Great drill. Better than cordless drills IMO
Have had it for less than a week and used it only once, but feels great. Solid construction, Lightweight and easy to handle. The variable speed is great help for newbies. The drill comes with a reversible button and can supposedly work as a driver too (haven't yet tried that out)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OregonPeaches I love this drill
I'm a fairly slight older woman who has purchased several drills without much success after my husband's Makita bit the dust. Cordless drills are just too heavy for me and often too big. On the other hand, I've purchased angled and other lightweight corded drills that are either whimpy or not capable of performing a wide range of projects. So I looked for a drill that had good reviews from both men and women and wasn't too heavy. This powerful drill/driver fits the bill at less than 4 lbs. (I wouldn't want it any heavier!) I put it to immediate use on a delicate RTA project with itty-bitty screws. No slippage which I always seem to do. I can't wait to work on something more substantial though I have no doubt it will be up for the test. The motion is true, didn't wobble at all and chuck is easy. I cannot imagine ever needing to buy another drill. I also purchased a 20 piece companion Dewalt drill/driver bit accessory package with an extra box of Phillips bits.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrywallRyan Good drill, good price
Normally I'm not a huge DeWalt Fan (pay an awful lot of money to get that yellow plastic on it) but this drill is great. I have a 3 drill system with a cordless 12V for screwdriving and light drilling, a corded 6A (this drill) for more serious wood drilling, an an SDS hammer for very serious concrete drilling and breaking. This drill fits in very well and is a great drill for the money, but I wouldn't pay more than what I did for the drill, just not worth it.

I love this drill. It is lightweight and fits the hand comfortably. I have a battery powered drill but every time I go to use it the battery is weak and needs three hours of charge. I wanted an electric one so when I need to drill a hole it is ready to use. I don't mind having to connect it to a power source. I am pleased I choose a Dewalt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clevitekid Best drill for my needs
Corded 115V, so no battery to worry about; keyed chuck so the drill bits are always secured TIGHTLY. Plenty of power for drilling holes or driving screws. Bright yellow DeWalt color so it is hard to misplace. I like it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by holemaker Good product for the price.
The main problem is that there isn't a button to lock the drill in "On." The cord is a little stiff. I'd recommend if locking the drill on is not important to you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma It seems to be just what my husband was looking for. It goes along easily to other homes. The case is nice and handleable.
We have used it on several occasions. It is very light due to not having the heavy battery in the base of it. Also, the battery won't have to be replaced down the road. The order went very smoothly on line and the product came within a couple of days. Very pleased overall with the whole process.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ricbrk Very nice drill
Was looking for a drill with the keyed chuck. I think they grip the bits better. This is a great drill. As soon as I got it, I drilled four holes in a 1/4" steel bracket that burned up the cordless drill I bought. Went through it like butter, no bogging or bit slipping. The reverse switch is in a good location. It takes a little while to get used to the variable speed, it's touchy. It seems like it will last a long time. And Home Depot shipped it free in 2 days !!!
