I'm an HVAC installer, this allows me to use spot bits, step bits, and non impact ready paddle bits without searching for my drill. If your primary fastener like me is an impact driver, this is a must have. Only thing it doesn't help with is hole saws. The only arbors that fit are small and are beat to pieces by an impact.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cotton adapter unscrewed
I'm a sheet metal worker. i use these with my impact so i don't have to carry a drill and impact all day. i used mine about a week. like others have complained, the adapter unscrewed from the chuck when i tried to remove a bit. due to some internal ratcheting mechanism it's nearly impossible to remove the bit by gripping the chuck with two sets of pliers.
i can't belive they don't use a reverse thread screw to keep the adapter from backing out.
i exchanged it, hopefully I'll have better luck with the new one.
i had one made by jacobs that lasted about 15 years. so far i haven't found a suitable replacement. i tried two from the "green" home improvement store, $5.99 and $14.99 and both of those broke the very first hole i drilled.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Junk, worthless, never again
I bought this as an alternative to buying a drill in order the save fifty of sixty dollars
Wasting two hours with it before caving in and returning it, something would go wrong every thirty seconds and I would have to completely reassemble everything
The chuck loses its bite seconds into drilling, have to retighten it or pick it up and put it back in if it's already fallen out
It's also worth mentioning I was doing incredibly light-grade work with black oxide bits and nothing heavy duty.. couldn't imagine a carpenter or a tradesman using this.. Not sure if I just got a defected one but I wouldn't recommend this product to ANYBODY

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff68 Excellent Adapter!
This adapter allows me to use long standard drill bits for my powerful impact drill. I can drill into hard thick wood with considerable ease where I couldn't do it with my standard drill. Thank you, Makita! Only one sales person, Jeremy, at Home Depot knew exactly what I wanted.

I dont understand how people give this more than 1 star if it only worked once for them. This thing is trash, im on my third exchange, this time I am going to just get my money back. True Garbage. Just get a normal drill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ParkPlusInc It works great
I use them from time to time. They work best with the Milwaukee bits that can take the impact of the driver. They are awesome for tearing through studs in the wall.
