Summary: i am very happy with seller and service, but the product comes up short... the chuck does not hold the bits in place during continuous work... you have to keep inserting and retightening the chuck..
A quality Dewalt Drill with one complaint which others have ...

Summary: A quality Dewalt Drill with one complaint which others have posted about... The instant stop feature when the trigger is released will gradually cause the chuck to loosen no matter how tight you tighten it which is a serious design flaw. It happens primarily at the highest speed when drilling. Have to learn to gradually release the trigger instead of rapidly which is a pain when used to using prior models.
Great except for the battery life/replacement cost

Summary: I've had a Milwaukee and two Dewalt battery powered drills. I loved them all. This drill/driver has steel gears which make it heavy but strong. My wife would rather it was lighter, I prefer strength. Now, 4 yrs later I still love the drill but the batteries have had it and I'm not going to spend $80 for batteries...looking at the new Milwaukee with lithium ion.
The metal chuck on this version is well worth the extra money over the cheaper plastic version

Summary: If your on the fence about buying this drill over the cheaper Dewalt drill of the same voltage but has the plastic chuck. Buy this drill, the metal chuck never loosens when drilling something because it has a built in wratcheting action that locks onto bits when it's tightened.
