Summary: I needed and extra screwgun recently so picked this one up for $99 from Amazon Cons Chuck wobble Motor smokes when drilling (eek!) Batteries overheat really fast (less than 30 seconds) Little power for a drill. Pros If all you need is a cordless powered screw driver this is mediocre. In Summary.
Summary: I was going to be one of those folks who just ordered a new set rather than pay the ridiculous price of replacing the batteries. But the set I ordered, which clearly shows the item with the large sized batteries, came with the much smaller batteries that are about 1/2 as tall.
Summary: The Keyless Chuck is total garbage, it keeps falling out, and wont tighten up at all. i actually feel it would be easyer just to buy a new chuck for this gun, rather then send it back.and for $200.00 i shouldnt have too.
Summary: I have purchased numerous tools over the years. From Harbor Freight $5 specials to $2000 cabinet table saws, but I have never had a tool under perform like this DeWalt drill. Shortly after purchasing the drill I used it for a minute or two drilling some holes in some wood.
Yet another over-priced, under-achiever from big yellow

Summary: This drill is, in short, a dud. I bought it somewhat hesitantly on the recommendation of a friend. I had been looking at this and the Milwaukee and Bosch equivalents but went ahead and took the plunge. What a mistake.
Summary: i have owned three of these drills over the last seven years,i was very impressed the first time i used the 18 volt drill about five years ago and immeadiatly bought one. since that time i have noticed a serious decline in craftsmanship and customer service on DeWalt's part.
