Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grogan14 Decent for what it is
As the title states, this tool is decent for what it is, a screwdriver. It is not an impact driver, nor is it a drill. You can certainly use it as a drill, with 1/4" hex shank drill bits, but it is intended for driving smaller screws, hence the 500rpm max.
I like it well enough for that, utilizing it mostly for installing switches and receptacles, or small screws when working on my vehicles - finesse applications. Wish I had waited for the newer model, as it has 2 speed ranges, topping out at 1700rpm, I think, and a good bit more torque, which makes it much more versatile than this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MARK Have recamended this many times
this has been the best drill driver I've tried and have been using this product for 6 years. Have tried others but none compare at this compact and light design. I am able to change the bit with one hand when I'm on the ladder holding up a piece of trough with the other hand. The battery charge last most of the day. An average day consists of screwing aprox. 100 hangers plus. That's a lot of torque on the wrist which makes this light weight product also ergo friendly. the cons about this is that I was told yesterday at Home Depot Guelph On. Canada that this product is been discontinued! What The Heck!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catlynn World's best small cordless driver
I bought this driver for my dad 2 years ago at Christmas. Borrowed it a few months later and "accidentally" never gave it back. I love this tool. It is small and light-weight (features I chose intentionally for my elderly father, but that, as a woman I greatly appreciate); yet it is versatile and very powerful. It holds full a charge for ages, and recharges quickly, but also has a spare battery so no work time is lost. I adore the quick-change feature. Dad's old drill was the chuck and key type, a real pain if someone torqued it down too tightly. I bought a set of quick-change drill-bits, and I use this tool as both drill and driver. One last thing - for the quality of this tool the price is amazing. Really, this little fellow is my favorite tool ever. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thanks, Milwaukee!

You may forget how to use a regular screwdriver. Great torque for screwing or drilling. My only dig, the fwrd/rev button allows unintentional direction change if your not careful.

This is a great driver, by far the best tool for its versatility. It is more powerful and flexible than its counterparts in the industry. It does weigh a little more, but the trade off is worth it. The charge lasts a long time. It is a snap to change from an allen wrench driver to a phillips head. I find myself seeking out this tool whether the job is big or small. Ironically, now it may take longer for me to get the tool from the garage than to do the job.

Lightweight and powerful. Would much rather drive screws with this 12-volt tool than my 18-volt impact driver. Was well worth the cost.

This tool is light, small and very powerful! It gets the job done. It is one of my favorite tools. From switching outlets out to small drywall repairs to screwing cabinets up this tool shines. I use it for so much! The other reviewer commented that it isn't very powerful- it is for what it is. If I was building a deck another tool would be more suited to the job of course, but for so many other projects this is the tool of choice. All my friends who have borrowed it think so too! This is a tool that will bring a smile to your face!!!!

Purchased this item as I have the Impact driver, the Hackall, the Palm nailer, and 90* Angle drill. First time with Milwaukee tools and liking them.
