Have had this model for several years now

Mike in Chicago, Amazon
23 January 2012
  • Summary: Initially I liked the drill, and for the most part it did what it needed to do.(at least for first 2 years) I'm a homeowner, so its not like I'm putting this under a lot of stress each time, or using it a lot, but I have to say it just doesn't hold up with battery charges like my 12 volt Makita has. Those are Ni-Cads, and the Makita has far more power and torque, than these 18 volt LI-ion's.

Loved It Till The Batteries Failed

Tars Tarkas, Amazon
20 May 2011
  • Summary: I really loved this drill for about 2 years. It had plenty of power for my home handyman uses which included driving screws through treated lumber when building a platform for a garden shed. The batteries lasted well and would charge up before the second battery could run out. It also feels nice and balanced in my large hands. Unfortunately, at about the 2 year mark both batteries started to fade.

Not happy

builder, CPO
12 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Very weak when it comes to long screws in hard wood. It might be a defecttive drill. I will take it in for repair. Battery drains quick when it is put to hard use. Not very happy with it for a 18v lithium battery.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Ergonomic Design
  • Cons: Lacks Power, Poor Battery/Charger
