Pros:
Good Design
Powerful 130 inch Torque
Fast Re-Charge to Finish few more screws
Tight Chuck--Plastic & Metal

Cons:
Battery won't hold charge long
No battery low indicator
No replacement battery or charger
New batteries are just as expensive as the drill itself.

When I first bought it 3 years ago I was thrilled for the amount of money it was and how it chewed through my projects. BUT then the battery stopped working, either it was charging too long and ruined the battery, or it just does not last I am not sure but it no longer holds a charge very long. I tried using it today for a few small screws and it died right in the middle of my project, which now I know can be blamed on the NiCad Battery tech, which takes much to long to charge and does not hold a charge like Lithium batteries. It also takes all night to charge fully.

The battery drains faster when you are outside in cold weather, as in most NiCad sets, but after 3 years it's to be expected. If you want the battery to last, just run the drill completely dead, either by using, or leaving it off the charger, then charge it all night. It holds up better and longer. DO NOT leave it charging either, it won't hold the charge and it seems to deplete the battery rather than charge it. If you know you will need it, I suggest you charge it the night before you plan your project. But if you are like me who does not use it, then needs it right away without it being on a charge, it's not a good choice. Lithium holds battery charges for those who need it, then won't need the drill for a long time it's still charged.

It has more torque than the new lithium models from B&D. Which is surprising, seeing as they might want more power with more volts. My mother has had the 7.

This drill is great for the money spent. Not much more to say, it's a cordless drill for the non-professional user. It will last for years if the battery is completely drained before recharging each time (just like any NiCad battery). It's all the average home owner needs around the house without question.

In the past I've owned a few of the 18v Firestorm Drill/Drivers and they where great for everything from my woodshop to medium heavy work in building and home repairs, but for a GP around the house drill/driver this is a very good option. I doubt anyone will expect a 12v Drill/Driver to compare to a higher voltage drill say 14v - 20v tools, but for small household projects this is all I'll be needing and would recommend this drill/driver to anyone looking to use for the same.

Over all it holds a good charge while performing doing projects, and when it's put up with a charge it seems to hold it very well. The chuck has been fine and I haven't had any issues with it or the other black & Decker tools I've owned. I would not recommend this as a professionals tool, but for the price it delivers very well used in the proper environment (around the house projects).

Drill worked well for me for a few years. However, the drill no longer holds a charge, a common problem others have mentioned.
I lived in an apartment for most of this period, so the drill got very minimal use. I probably used the drill maybe a dozen times over the last three years, for simple indoor tasks.
Therefore the failure is not a function of usage, but rather appears to be a factor of time.

I would love to simply replace the battery, however the cost of battery replacement is very close to the price of a new drill and given the short life span on the batteries it is not a logical investment.

So the battery is going to the recycler and drill to the garbage.

Summary: This is a well functioning drill with a very poor lifetime. If you need a cheap drill and plan on upgrading in the future, this is a good buy. But if you want a reliable tool that will last, look elsewhere.

Amazing. I was expecting something cheap and plastic but this sucker is durable. For the price and the cordless feature it is fantastic. I would suggest this tool to anyone who needs something cordless. The battery is fairly good too. I think I get around 5-6 hours of moderate work out of it. I don't do too much drilling so Im not sure the battery life when you drill. Overall YES!

I am new to the home improvement game. After two years living in my condo I finally decided to make some improvements. I did alot.. alot of research on drills and it got a bit daunting until I came across this Black & Decker. I can say it does the trick for me. I agree with the other reviewer in that it should have a case or bag something! But I have stored it away nicely until the next use. I am not vying for a job on HGTV but if you have stuff to hang then this maybe up your alley. The price is pretty good too.

Great battery life. Some cordless drills seem to have serious battery drain when doing tougher (Or even not so tough) projects. This one seems to last well. I wouldn't drill heavy-duty holes or bolts with this guy, but it is great around the house. But, I honestly have not given this drill a task that it could not meet.

MY FAVORITE part of this particular Black and Decker drill: I do not need to remove the battery to charge. It comes with an adapter that plugs the drill directly into the wall. I have not ever needed to keep more than one battery charged. This is not that kind of drill. This is the perfect, cordless, household drill.

And affordable. I keep one, permanently in a trade show booth kit that travels around the country, making set ups less painful and quick.
