    It depends, of course, on how 'heavy duty' your drilling needs are. If, like me, you want something cable-free that will drill through wood, the occasional bit of brick-work, and also act as a screw-driver, all very occasional DIY, then this is a good choice considering the low price and does the job well. You can adjust the torque settings and the drill speed (2 speeds), and it has a hammer function for masonry. Conveniently, it is cordless and is powered by a rechargable battery - of which there are 2, so you can have one on charge and one in use. However, for anything more heavy duty than this, and you'll find it lacking in both power and ability to do the job. Just once or twice I have needed to put hanging basket brackets into the house brick-work, and this did the job - eventually! But it's slow at it, and the battery drains quickly under such stress.

    I bought this product recently for use during caravan holidays and to build a Pergola and Decking. It has been well used and it is perfectly OK on most tasks. Drill bits do sometimes get stuck as it is hard to get the chuck tight enough and when the battery runs down it under performs( Just change the battery, it came with 2. For the price it is a good domestic drill but not in the league of expensive profesional drills.

    This Hammer drill generally lacks the power to drill into brick and concrete walls. I can get maybe two or three 5mm diameter drill holes in to a brick walls before a freshly charged battery looses power to drill. The bit grip is also poor, leading to the bit frequently stoping rotating and getting stuck in the drilled material. I thought it was a good price, its not, its not up to the minimum amount of DIY I do around the house.

    Useful drill which has the advantage of coming with two batteries. The drill bits that it comes with are not of particuarly good quality, so buy some more substantial ones and save yourself the hassle of rounding off the points. Overall the total package is good value for money.

    I was a bit dubious when I bought this drill as to whether the hammer action would be powerful enough to drill through masonry and brick,having now tried it a few times I am pleased to report it has done the job.

    First of all people complaining about drill pieces coming loose are you people using hexagon head drill pieces designed for manual tightening?
    Pretty standard common sense I would have thought, but I got caught out as well on that. only used twice to date am awaiting my hexagon head pieces to come in the post but so far I think it just about has enough power to do most household jobs including screwing joinery together. Havent charged yet after using a number of times and have 2 batteries to hand. Quite well made but then so was my 10 year old £10 challenge drill which is still going strong.

    I would recommend it for household use but not professional use. built well enough and the case is good quality as well as having its own designated battery charger. For £60-£70 its good value.

    Would have preferred drill with a chuck key to obtain maximum tightness. Unable to do this by hand and so far have found the chuck doesn't grip the drill bit tightly and when applying pressure when drilling the bit stops.

    As previously stated, it doesn't seem to have enough power to act as a screwdriver. Ok for drilling small holes and undoing quite loose screws, but not nearly strong enough to get them out itself.
