Great for around the house
on August 9, 2011
Like the reviewer that gave this drill 1 star, I also got this on the gold box deal. I had done a bunch of research and was actually about to buy a corded drill since they are cheaper and don't have the environmental impact of the battery. The only thing they don't have, which I think is an essential feature, is an adjustable clutch. Anyway, this seemed like a great deal on the gold box, so I pulled the trigger.
Lightweight (with the slim battery)
Seems to hold a great charge (at this early writing of two weeks I haven't moved to the second battery yet)
Seems strong (haven't drilled any metal yet)
Great case - I was able to fit the drill, two batteries, the charger, two boxes of bits, my pack of spade bits, and some socket adapters, and there is still room for more odds and ends.
I noticed a slight wobble when using a spade bit with an extension. I did some checks with other long bits to make sure, and it's definitely the drill. It's really hardly noticeable and the spade bit with extension still drilled a clean hole in drywall. For everything I've done with shorter bits this problem did not show. I will update if it gets worse.
I'm mostly just an around the house DIY user and this drill has worked out great for me.
