    I've been using this kit heavily to finish a basement room. I did some shopping around originally to upgrade my old 9.6 V cordless. I had narrowed it down the Dewalt DC720KA, the Milwaukee 18v compact, or the BDF142 when I came upon this kit. I never used an impact driver before this, but I discovered all the pros now do their screw driving with these. I'm glad I decided to give it a try!

    Impact Driver: I will never drive wood screws with a drill again! Significantly less pressure is required to keep the phillips bit in contact with the screw head. I've driven 3" wood screws all week and not a single stripped head. It can install a fastener in tight places where a drill or hammer/nail just can't go. Superior torque will bury the screw (head and all) as deep in the wood as you want to go. I will use this more than any other tool in the kit. It is a little beast!

    Drill: Good combination of power and speed. Enough to push a 1 1/4" self feeding bit through 3 1/2" of pressure treated lumber the high torgue setting. 5/8" self feeding bits eat through studs in a flash on the high speed setting. It is light like a cordless tool should be, and has the best power/weight ratio of any cordless by far. It comes with a quality chuck and plenty of torque. I think the drill is slightly better than the compact 18v Milwaukee and just a shade behind the Dewalt DC720KA which are both fine products.

    Light: Has four convenient head angle adjustments from 0 degrees to about 110 degrees and a strap for hanging. Not a primary reason to buy this kit, but it's come in really handy for me.

    Kit positives: Nice compact case has room for drill bits and accessories. Batteries do charge in 15 minutes. These tools have serious power.

    First off, I'm a professional fabricator, and i've been typically really hard on my tools, especially cordless tools, but these have far exceeded my expectations. I bought this setup when i was in a jam, my heavy duty 18v Milwuakee crapped out after only 2mos of service, and only a week back from its first warranty repair (I'm no longer a milwuakee fan, sadly). Well, needing to finish a project for monday, and stuck looking for a new driver/drill on a saturday night, I picked up the combo kit at a Home Depot minutes before closing, figuring it would get me through the project, and the impact driver might come in handy for some light duty projects later on.

    Well I was amazed after working with these for 4 mos solid. So small yet so powerful, and far more rugged than i would have expected for their light weight and plastic-y feel. And wow, did i say they are small? I mean i can put the impact driver in the side pocket on my cargo shorts, or back pocket of my carhartts and comfortably climb a ladder like that. They seriously lighten my load when I'm lugging a bag of tools to a gig outside the shop, too.

    The only drawback I've found is an entirely acceptable compromise for the light weight and easy handling, which is short battery life between charges. But Makita makes up for this by including a sophisticated and fast charger.

    In short, this works really great for the sort of work that cordless tools do well for; tough intermittent tasks where access is tight. Sure it doesn't have all of the brawn of some of the full-size makita 18v line, but really when i need that sort of power, I'll want to be using something Pneumatic or AC-driven.

    Buy it if you need a lightweight tool for intermittent use. If you need something to replace a corded/pneumatic tool out in the field, you might want to bump up to the full size (lxt) line.

    The new LiOn driver usually runs near two hundred by itself. Add the impact driver that goes for close to this price AND include the spotlight and you definitely have a winner.

    I've used the driver myself and it is a joy to use. It is very lightweight and the batteries charge in 15 minutes. So even if I'm using the drill full time, I can't run out of juice.

    Verified Purchase
    I purchased this tool to replace a severely aged Dewalt 18v drill/driver. I build cabinets and needed a drill that weighed less than my old Dewalt boat anchor, so I purchased the lightest serious tool I could find, this Makita.

    The drill:
    - excellent ergonomics, very light weight, excellent balance, excellent run time per charge (especially given the 1.5 amp/hour battery rating), power to spare for normal usage.
    - The LED light is excellent, and the fact that it stays on for a few seconds after the trigger is released is even better.
    - I change bits a lot while working and have had no problems whatsoever with the chuck.
    - My only very minor gripe is that the trigger isn't quite as smooth as my old Dewalt...it is not as easy to finesse small screws as I would like. I imagine this will improve over time, if not then wax, lithium lube or graphite will fix it.

    Impact driver:
    - I didn't purchase the kit specifically for this tool, but it was a handy addition. Same basic comments as above, except that the trigger seems less sticky.
    - Just to see what would happen I clamped up 8 scraps of yellow pine 2x4 and drove a 4" #12 hardened steel screw (from McFeely's) into the stack. I used a 6" long square drive bit normally used for driving pocket screws. The screw broke when the head was approximately 5" BELOW THE SURFACE. Pretty cool.

    - the unit is significantly brighter than my 6-cell Maglight with fresh batteries, and will run seemingly forever on a charge.
    - As I've read in other review it is lightweight to the point of feeling cheap, but in the end it performs very well. Also includes an extra bulb.

    - intuitively easy to use, provides lots of information about the batteries and charging progress.
