Summary: he drill performed well initially but eventually failed. When I tried to get warranty service I was told that the part that broke was not covered under the warranty. I had it repaired at a local authorized repair shop and that lasted about month before another part failed and yep you guessed it, that part was not covered under the warranty either.
Summary: I bought this tool on the strength of the Milwaukee name and I think it will be my last Milwaukee tool. Bad side -- I bought this drill to rebuild my deck and the tool barely made it thru the project. I found it terribly underpowered and it drained batteries at an astounding pace. I was changing batteries every 15 minutes. Gutless...regardless of setting selected, it would bog down at the slightest resistance.
Summary: I was always a die hard Milwaukee fan and when I saw this drill at the local tool store, I just had to buy it. I have been using this drill for abut 2 years now and wish I would have done more research before purchasing. Please beware Milwaukee was bought out by a Chinese company TTI (Techtronic Industries) in 2005; they also own AEG power tools and Ryobi. Ever since TTI took over Milwaukee, they have had numerous battery issues and just over all quality problems.
Review of Milwaukee compact drill from a V28 owner

Summary: I have been an electrician for over 20 years, and have seen and used alot of cordless drills in this time. I have either owned them or my employees have owned them (Dewalt, Milwaukee, Makita, Hitachi, PC, Panasonic, Bosch). With that being said Milwaukee has been the best brand for me thus far. The Dewalts are junk and the rest of the drills are pretty good with the exception of the Panasonic being quite a bit above average.
