It's rare anymore to find a mundane product that shows a lot of thought and creativity in design, and is absolutely perfect. This Bosch drill is one of those rare examples where it's so good, so well thought out, operates so perfectly you just smile and go "wow!".

I've owned Bosch tools for years and have never been disappointed, but this one really goes above and beyond anything they have come up with yet.

- It's sent fully charged (a very nice courtesy)
- Ergonomically it's just great - perfectly balanced especially compared with the other competing products. Very, very easy on the wrist and arm.
- Very powerful but has a variable torque setting so you can use it for delicate work or breaking rusty bolts/nuts or drilling through rocks
- Very quiet and what little noise it makes is quite pleasant
- The case is very well designed and a great value add with ample storage for bits, stud finders, pencils, etc
- IT HAS A FLASHLIGHT built into the handle so that you can clearly see what you are doing!!!
- Has a torque cut out so you can't strip screw-heads, but it works beautifully so you can still drive them into tough materials without any problem. I don't know how they did it, but they did.
- Batteries are a solid fit both into the handle and charger.

At $129 this is a terrific value. I don't think anyone could design a better drill. It's just the greatest.

I'll preface by saying I have quite a lot invested in Makita's LXT system already. I love the Makita tools.

Now, for the Bosch. First impression, I was impressed. This is a nice tool. Very well made, great fit and finish typical of Bosch. This drill is relatively light weight but more importantly well balanced. The controls are easy to get to and use, to include the speed selector, forward/reverse selector, and clutch. The chuck is Rohm, which is a quality brand from Germany (hopefully it actually is made there too). The outer sleeve looks like it wobbles, but the chuck itself doesn't. Very little run out, and this is a hand drill anyway. The light actually isn't too bad, it points where the drill/screwdriver bit is. All these drills cast a shadow on their lights so I can't be too negative here.

The battery included is a 2Ah with digital fuel gauge. A REALLY nice feature that I wish Makita had incorporated in their batteries. Charging took nearly 30 minutes for a nearly depleted battery, not too bad. The charger is easy to use but doesn't have a fan built in like the Makita units. I wish it did as it would help cool the battery pack. This size battery is a good compromise between the usual 1.5Ah and bigger 3 or 4 Ah units.

The included screwdriver bits are good quality, my kit came with a two sided bit as well as a bit holder with Philips bit. Bosch lists the drill as having 600 in/lbs of torque which translates to 50 ft/lbs. That's pretty darn good. I drilled through 3/8" mild steel with a standard HSS 1/4" bit and didn't have a problem. Drilled through wood and both hard and soft and no problem. I did have a bit of a hard time driving a 2" drywall screw all the way into a 2x4 without a pilot hole.

I've owned Dewalt, Ryobi, B&D, and now this Bosch drill. The Bosch leaves me wanting nothing else in a drill.

Pros & Cons as compared to the others I've owned (in this price range).
Pros:
1) Lighter weight and compact, with a very solid build. This is well balanced, feels similar to my Ryobi lithium drill, but is slightly more compact. Nice for squeezing it into tight spaces like cabinets.
2) Plenty of space on the handle for a big hand. These are built for man hands, and are comfortable to hold all day long. When I'm working with my Dewalt, it feels like a giant brick in comparison to this drill.
3) POWERFUL - One of the first tasks I used it for was driving 4" screws to anchor a snack-bar into multiple layers of studs. I pre-drilled the counter but not the studs, and it sank them all the way without complaining. My Dewalt nicad drill was also able to do it, but it had to grunt. The Ryobi lithium gave up with about 1" of screw still sticking up. maybe a battery issue, that drill is getting old now, but it just stalled out.
4) The battery charges incredibly fast. I don't know how they did it, but it goes from empty to full in about 20 -25 minutes. The kit i bought came with only one battery, and I ordered a spare based on experience with other drills, but really I don't think there's much need for the spare. The drill lasts so long that by the time it needs a charge you'll be ready for lunch / dinner / or a break, and it will re-charge fully while you're eating. In heavy use away from 120v power, I'd want two batteries to make it through the day.
5) The battery has a built-in charge indicator, so you know if it's dead. It seems to be accurate enough, and is handy to check how much charge you have before it needs some juice.

Have a Craftsman 19.5 volt drill that I purchased a few years back through a Sears refurbished site. Had worked well for several years but battery would not charge at times so it was time to start looking since as I am sure you are aware that that the new batteries alone are almost the price of a new drill with new battery!

I reviewed tons of models and really thought about the Makita being the one to purchase as I had used the ones my son owns and very impressed with it's power, long lasting charge and short recharge time but could not part with that much money for a ONE drill. When I checked on Amazon and found the Bosch with a solid 4.5 stars and great reviews at an unbelivable price of $129. plus free shipping as a Prime member, it was a no-brainer. It also arrived a day earlier than it was scheduled.

I use the drill/driver everyday in my business and it performs great and have only had to recharge the battery once! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a quality product at a great price!
