Excellent quality. No jams or issues, other than running out of juice in the middle of a session. It only comes with one battery, so you might want to splurge on another. Found two 18v XRP for $99, or one for about $85. Fairly heavy, but pretty well balanced so it does not pull on my wrist much, and so does not feel as heavy as it might if it were unbalanced. Only takes 18g, but that works for what I need.

I did some fine trim work in a very visible part of my house and this nailer, er, sorry, nailed it. It drove a brad every time,and drove it below the wood's surface just as I expected after I did some adjustment. Easy to load and use. Battery life was as I expected. I was working on surfaces above my head and it did get heavy, but that is to be expected as well. I am inclined to by 16 gauge nailer as well.

I chose 4 stars rather than 5 due to the lack of use for the tool and how long the batteries will hold up. I have used it and found that is heavier than my B&D I own. It has significantly more power than the B&D and must be tried on a scrap piece in order not to send the brad through the material. At this point it appears to be a good purchase.

This is my first nailer. Ideal for installing trim. Works as advertised, but there is an adjustment wheel for depth that does not adjust. I will have to call Dewalt about that. I don't understand what a depth adjustment is for anyway. You want the nail to set slightly below the material surface, which it does, so why the adjust wheel?

Just used this for my first project. Couldn't be easier to set up and use. So much better than having to lug around a compressor. I was using it for crown molding so it's a bit heavy but nothing you won't get used to if you are switching from a compressor nail gun set up. Definitely makes your life easier!

I bought this nailer a few months ago and just now got it out of the box. At first, it seemed kind of bulky. However, as soon as I used it I fell in love. It is idiot proof, safe, reliable and not to mention, works great. I can't wait to use it again in future projects. I love it. I wish I had used it sooner.

I had been wanting a nail gun for for many years, but never wanted to get into the whole compressor thing. I have been finishing my basement and have a lot of detail molding and trim work to install. I had purchased an Arrow electric nailer from Home Depot about a year ago for around $140 and the thing was nothing but trouble. It jammed, wouldnt set the nails properly, and then finally just stopped working completely. (You could hear the whole motor assembly shaking around loosely inside of the plastic housing) I returned it and as always, Home Depot was very easy to deal with on a return. They took it back no problem and gave me a full refund. So i started my quest again and came across the DEWALT Nailer. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but the reviews were good, so I went ahead and ordered it along with some nails. I put it to work right away installing window and door trim and baseboards. I love it. Having to put in a lot of baseboard, it was a pleasure shooting the nails quickly, rather than speniding hours on hands and knees hammering them in and THEN setting them. Wish I had this when I did all the trim work in the rest of my house! It worked perfect every time. Probably shot about a few hundred nails already and it worked every time, setting the nail and leaving just a tiny hole to fill. So based on this very early experience, I would rate it 5 stars, and well worth the money. Hopefully it will continue to operate as well as it does now with contnued use. It is a bit heavy, but beats the hell out of having to drag around a compressor and hoses for the casual DIY-er. I also bouught the nails for it, but they are available at HD or Lowes if needed. They load super easily and come in sizes up to 2 inches for this model. Very satisfied with this purchase!

this nailer is awesome for trimwork, the downfall is the lack of power when working with hardwoods..it doesn't countersink fasteners when using on hardwoods, paslode is better for that application, nonetheless I am very happy with my purhase

I recently purchased the Dewalt 18-Volt Cordless Brad Nailer for some woodworking projects. I am using the Anchor Stainless Steel Brads, varying sizes, also purchased from Amazon. Our local community Lowe's and Home Depot do not carry cordless nailers, and after building small toys for my children for years by hand (which has its merits), this tool is a welcome relief.

It feels heavier than my other Dewalt tools, but, typical of this company, the brad nailer is well balanced and can be held and used comfortably at different angles in one hand. The instructions are easy to follow for this low maintenance device. Brads are easy to insert into the chamber. It comes with an 18-V XRP battery and charge (as well as a carrying case). I especially like the safety features. There is a quick flip switch that will lock the tool and prevent brads from being fired (useful when the kids are checking on project status). You also have the option of setting the tool to fire upon trigger squeeze or auto-fire each time you press the device head against a surface (these two firing options are set easily with the flip of a switch).

After many hours of use the past few weeks, I have nothing but praise. This is a low maintenance tool (the instructions are very clear to the customer about not lubricating this device. I would highly recommend to those looking for a brad nailer that can handle 18-gauge brads from 5/8 inch to 2 inches (thus far, the Anchor Stainless Steel Brads have worked flawlessly, just be sure to get the 18-gauge ones).

I needed an accurate, reliable, and capable machine to join 3/4" x 4" hemlock molding flush to another wood surface along the 4" side. The molding had to be tight, and I wanted a minimum size nail hole to fill. This machine worked perfectly, after charging the battery out of the box, I watched a video on how to load it, and 5 minutes later I was nailing. A couple of jams, no big deal to clear. I used 1-1-4" Dewalt brads, set the power-depth at 5, and the nails were recessed exactly where I wanted them. Make sure you read the operating and safety instructions. The machine is very easy to operate and maintain.
The build quality is excellent, metal top and nail magazine, the rest that neat yellow durable plastic. Lightweight at 7.5 lbs, but I'm doing mainly down hand nailing on a bench top. I'm sure it will work in awkward and hard to get to places.
Update: 2/1/15 I have used this tool for a few jobs already, and am happy to report it works consistently( no jambs), and in a variety of woods. One job was as stated above, it could be adjusted so that the 3/4" hemlock was tightly nailed together and the heads were recessed precisely. A second job with 1-1/2" nails secured 3/4" trim to framing, very tight and accurate. Strong nailing. A third job was nailing 3/8" oak threshold to 7/8" oak flooring, and at the top power setting it did the job perfectly. Went right through the oak and recessed the heads about 1/16". Very tight nailing in oak to oak. An excellent, well-designed and executed product that does the job.
