Summary: I purchased a new 14.4v for the shop last month. So impressed I sold my 15 yr old 14.4v Dewalt for $50 on gregslist and ordered another new one. Slightly thinner profile and the black handgrip is easier to hold. I also appreciate the easier way to tighten the chuck with only one hand.
Summary: This drill didn't fall short of my expectations. Solid design, compact size, very powerful and I got a really good deal on Amazon. I'm not giving it 5 stars because when I use it at very low revs I feel it vibrating a lot. I'm not sure if this is normal or if the gears need to be broken in.
Summary: Just got this two days ago, so can't comment about the long-term. Arrived in good condition, had to charge the two batteries for about an hour each, but no big deal. Although smaller than my 11-year old 14.4V Black & Decker, it is heavier and appears to have a bit more power.
Summary: Pros: The drill has plenty of power to drill or drive screws! I have gotten over an hour of use before needing to charge the battery. Cons: The drill is as heavy as my 24V. I was expecting a lighter drill. The single LED provides plenty of light, but the drill / driver tip seems to be in the shadow.
Summary: Once again I was faced with dead batteries for my cordless drill, and replacement batteries cost almost as much as new a whole new drill set. I opted for the new drill for an extra thirty bucks. It is basically the same drill I already have, with a few improvements.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the DeWalt Drill/Driver. The 14.4 Volt drill is the workhorse for our Set Construction Crew. We put on three productions a year and we have found that this drill is powerful enough to accomplish our needs from light work to repeated heavier work such as three inch screws...
Summary: Good drill driver, 14v is better than 12... You will notice that when you release the trigger in 2nd speed(only 2nd) that it grinds to a stop. That is normal according to a Dewalt repair tech I showed to in person.
