Another great product from porter cable!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PORTER-CABLE PCL212IDC-2 12-Volt Max Compact Lithium-Ion 2-Tool Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)
I was in the market for a small compact drill to add to my tool inventory. I looked at several other brands with small compact tool lines, but I already own the porter cable 4 piece 18 volt cordless set so I started looking up what they have to offer. After looking around the obvious choice was a combo set. I may have jumped the gun a little but as soon as I saw these tools ( and read the reviews ) I just bought them. The worst part about buying them was waiting for them to ship to my house. As soon as I got them I put them right to work, seriously I charged the batteries and used both the drill and driver.
There was no getting use to the tools or adjusting my routine for any reason. These tools will feel perfect in your hands. Light weight and well balanced will make using these tools enjoyable for anybody and they still have the performance you expect and need.
Some of the cool features worth mentioning, the led light that comes on when you pull the trigger is a big help. It also turns off as soon as you let go which is nice because one of my buddies just bought another brand compact drill set and the led light on that driver stays on for 10 seconds or so. To me thats just a waist of battery life. The belt clips are an awesome feature, the drivers are so light they don't way your belt down. They are made so you can switch the clip to either side of the driver or just take it off. It's as easy as removing one Phillips head screw.
These drivers are a good bang for the buck. Deffinately cheaper on amazon too, I saved $20 on this set compared to buying it from a retail store.
