Summary: I bought this last year(more than a year now)in offer, no regrets so far. It was an excellent buy, the only downside is to get extra bits(drill & scre driver). I have to sent back the extra bit set which I bought with the set. Then I contacted amazon customer service regarding it but they are also not sure. About the product "excellent".
Lightweight but powerful and small enough to mana...

Conclusion: Lightweight but powerful and small enough to manage awkward spaces. Changing from one accessory to another is quick and easy. Battery re-charge is quick. I also found the Bosch accessories department really helpful when I rang them about needing a drill bit which was not one of the ones provided.
Summary: I bought this drill to replace a fairly basic Black and Decker drill which couldn't put a hole through butter!! I could not believe how easy it is to use and it cuts through walls with ease. Please note that the only drill bit sets that work with this drill are the Bosch 'HEX' X-Line sets and the 3 piece SDS-Quick contrete drill bit set. A great buy!!!!!
UNEO- DON'T buy a SDS plus adapter -- and an English source for UNEO adapter and drill bits

Summary: May 2011. The Bosch UNEO 3-in-1 is a brilliant tool; it's beautifully light-weight and it's cordless (it won a design award in 2009). Yes, it only comes with a few Bosch SDS Quick drill bits, but you don't have to worry about the lack of accessories any more -- and you don't need to order accessories from Germany anymore either.
Summary: I really like this product, very comfortable to use for all kind of drilling around the house. My personal favorite is screw driving mode, but be careful here, need to be very gentle not to overdo it (by going too fast one can damage the cap of the screw). The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that we had a bit of a trouble in the beginning: Bosch uneo got stuck in the hammer-drilling mode after the very first time I used it. That was very disappointing.
Summary: i purchased this drill for the purpose mainly of handiness and flexibility, it certainly meets those requirements. its small, light in weight, relitively powerfull for its size and although ive only had it a couple of weeks its already living up to my expectations and requirements for a portable cordless power tool. as for durability, im sure being manufactured by bosch it will survive a long time as long as its looked after and not abused.
Summary: What a mission! Like everyone else says getting drill bits are a nightmare. I checked with bosch themselves and there is actually two drill bit sets available for the uneo. I bought the more complete one, where from? Amazon Germany! http://www.amazon.de/Bosch-Zubehör-2607019613-43-teiliges-X-line-Set/dp/B001419S9S/ Came in about a week, you can use your existing Amazon UK account so there is no need to mess about. There is my good deed of the day.
Summary: As others have said this is a glorified screwdriver. Extremely limited range of SDS Quick bits means this is very limited. Wish I'd bought a SDS plus rechargeable instead, what a waste of money. I may try and get a hold of a set of Trend hex bits as another reviewer has done.
Summary: I was looking for an SDS hammer drill and was a little disappointed because the drill was in fact a "mini" SDS, and none of my standard bits fit. However, for DIY, the drill is perfect. It is light and the masonary bits drill 6mm holes through the toughest of brickwork and stone with great ease. I yust hope I can get replacement bits. The battery is enclosed within the drill so make sure it gets charged each day if in constant use.
