Summary: I have used this drill for everything from very small to medium size home "DIY" projects & repairs. Each time, it has performed above & beyond the call of duty. I have no gripes whatsoever, and highly recommend it. It is relatively compact, charges quickly, and is well-balanced in my hands. If you make a living doing things with drills (ie, contractor, etc.), then I don't know how it will hold up under constant heavy use.
Summary: Cant beat this driver. Powerful and light weight. Sturdy, and fairly compact. Only missing item is a small illuminating light for dark/tight spot while using. Shipping was quick, and painless. Very satisfied.
Summary: This is my second one of these drills the last one I had for 6 years a long time for a cordless tool that gets used by a finish carpenter everyday. The amazing thing is how long the batteries last. Other brands of cordless tools I've had, the batteries won't hold a charge after about a year and a half.
Summary: I wanted this drill because Consumer Reports magazine gave it a very good rating. I've had a few drills over the past 15 years and was disappointed with the performance or lack of performance with each one. The price I paid was very good and just like I hoped, this drill works like a dream! It's not too heavy, it charges very quickly and it easily handles my home repair jobs. Of all the items I've purchased on ebay, by far, this one makes me the happiest!
Summary: I bought this product because I worked side by side with someone and mine. Absoltuely no contest. It's like the eveready bunny, it just keeps running and running. Great product and very light.
Great cordless drill/screwdriver for home projects!

Summary: I have owned several brands of cordless drill but have never been real impressed with the torque, or battery life. This Panasonic has more torque, is smaller and more compact, and has tremendous battery life. It is now my favorite tool. I have been recommending Panasonic to my neighbors. I never did that with any of the other brands.
Summary: I took this little bad boy out into the sugarbush last spring with 3 batteries and over 1,000 7/16 holes to drill in hard maple trees. The holes had to be about 2-1/2" deep. I used 2 of the batteries. If you ask me, there's no better cordless driver/drill than a Panasonic!
Panasonic cordlesses have become contagious in the building trades

Summary: I bought my first Panasonic cordless after ridiculing a co-worker who paid more for a used 9.6v Panasonic than the cost of a new Makita. He loaned it to me for an hour and the next day I bought a new 12v one for myself, and then shortly, another. Over the years many co-workers who borrowed mine have done the same. I just bought 2 more of these. I use them in tandem a lot, so I buy them in pairs when the batteries start to need charging more than once a day.
Summary: My first Panasonic (EY6432NQKW) lasted 7 years under heavy use. Fabulous torque, battery life, ergonomics, balance. Not much of a factor in purchasing it, it's shorter length proved invaluable in many situations. This thing drives screws through several inches of dimension lumber for a long time on one battery charge. Very impressive. The chuck clutch finally gave out, but I quickly bought this new Panasonic, and also another mfgr's lithium model.
