The drill is very good value for the money and is built sturdily enough to last most people a lifetime, certainly doing DIY jobs. Bosch have a reputation for producing good tools and this drill is no different.
In recent years there has been a move away from corded drills to the cordless variety. The problem I find with those is that when you do want to use it you probably find that it is not charged up. Also although they are sold as a multi-purpose tool, screwdriver, drill etc. most of them do not have the power to tackle the heavier duty jobs and can even burn our if pushed too hard.
This is a drill and not a screwdriver and as such has ample power for virtually all the jobs you would need to do around the house. The hammer action is ideal for brick and stonework. The drills variable speed action is smooth and the keyless chuck beats the old style chuck hands down. If you don't mind plugging it in this is the drill for you.
