The case is a perfect fit and makes it easy to keep everything together. Nowadays, if a tool doesn't come in a carry case, I probably won't buy it. The case doesn't seem as tough as some other cases I have, but I expect it to hold up OK.
Having NiCad batteries is not ideal because of their unusual charging requirements - having to wait till they are totally dead before recharging. I've used NiCads for years, though, and they're fine. It's just that when there is something better available, I want to have it. Porter-Cable does have lithium batteries available, but they are expensive, and I don't actually need them. Like many other newer drills, this has a small LED light that shines on the work area, a nice feature.
Overall, it's an excellent drill, and when I need another, I'll probably get one of these.
The only downside was that with all the pressure I put on it, the batteries would get hot and when placed in the charger, they would have a long cool down period before they actually started charging. This doesn't happen with normal use. This is not a complaint and is not a problem unless you are planning to do something unusual, like I did. If you are going to work all day placing it under extreme pressure, you might want an extra set of batteries.
I am totally happy with this drill.
