This is a great light to medium duty rotary drill. You can't compare the way rotary drill to a standard hammer drill. Its faster by a few seconds but the real difference is the effort. With just light pressure you can drill masonry holes in a few seconds. I'm using it primarily for fastening and anchoring in masonry. I also bought the driving kit which has a sleeve that slides over the supplied rotary bit and turns it into driver and comes with several screw bits. No need to fuss with another drill. Takes me about 20 seconds while working on a ladder to switch. I've only had it for a few days, but I'm pretty positive it will be my goto drill for a while. If the tool lives up to what I expect I can look into the many M12 tools.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by st17 good for small holes
Works well for 1/4 holes and putting in concrete screws. i tried drilling a 3/8 hole through 12 inches of concrete with it and drained the entire battery trying to get through. I kind of wish i had gotten the 18v instead...that being said this was much less expensive. I'll continue to use my corded rotary hammer drill for the larger holes

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PlumberMike M12 SDS Hammer Drill is wonderful
I was so excited to get this tool after i saw it existed. I drill a lot of quarter inch holes overhead and in walls for anchors and i normally have to get a cord out and use the bosch. With this tool i now have a light cordless drill that will handle the job easily. The drill is very light and feels cheap. That being said you put a hot battery on it with a good bit and it will drill into concrete like a champ.
My guys are already begging to use my new toy.
For those that use hammer drills like the bosch extreme then you'll know where i'm coming from with this next statement. This drill is quiet! I work in highrises and no hammerdrilling during the day is standard. Now i haven't tried to get away with using this during the day but i'm going to try at some point. I don't know how this drill can quietly hammer a hole but it does. If you watch a video of this on youtube you will see how it sounds rickety which it does sound cheap but its not that loud and the hammer is super minimal. the drill running is making that noise.
Overall for the price i Think its a great tool, I'm using it everyday! Think i might even get the drill vac when it comes out as an accessory!
