I bought this to use in a fixed application. Lifting/lowering a table top suspended on cables.
NOT as a 'normal' cordless drill. It was also at reduced price in the Amazon Warehouse.
I (correctly) guessed that an 18V drill with 750rpm top speed should have good torque.
In my application it would get 5 stars. The reason for 3 stars is to reflect the general and intended use.

The chuck has a flimsy feel and is only 10mm, which restricts the use of large jobber and masonry drills.
Small drills (for metal) are going to take ages to cut at the slow spindle speed.
Small shank, or hex shank wood bits should be good.
Small masonry drills will be OK.
Screwdriving will be good with the low speed.

There is one battery, that is recharged while on the drill, and it is a slow recharge.
Definitely not a tool for anything vaguely like intensive use.

If you very occasionally drill a few holes. But don't want to spend, then this is OK.
But don't forget that you need to top up the battery every month or two.
This is a NiCd battery which will have a significant self discharge rate.
If you don't top up for months, then it can be damaged.

If you have just moved house, or are embarking on a significant project, then save up for something better.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 13 December 2013
Over the years I've collected various power tools, both mains and battery. Most have been adequate but the rechargeable ones have never been excellent. They seem to take forever to charge up and don't last long. This drill driver is the exception; I can't fault it.

I ordered on Monday, it was delivered the following day. Out of the box, it was good to go and the range of torque settings made it easy to use on some wood that's quite tough. I've also used it on breeze block and it was a piece of cake. It's light, well balanced and easy to hold, so I'm very pleased. It only comes with one drill/ driver bit. Not a problem as I already have loads from other tools. But if you're just starting out, you'll probably need to top up with a bigger range of heads. Happy to recommend.

Great drill, used it to build my own greenhouse, screwed 270 screws and still hasn't slowed down, very happy with the balance and weight of this drill, I own other cordless drills so I don't need to worry about the charging complications with the charging cable fitting into the drill, its still a great bit of kit, well worth buying.

Bought this drill to make some fixed beds but can also be used as electric screwdriver it has no hammer function but for the cost represents good value. Battery lasts a while after charge. This is a good basic drill for general diy jobs.

Was torn between 4 & 5 stars because it's 5 for domestic applications but is unlikley to be up to heavy duty professional use so I don't want to mislead. Great product for domestic use and good value for the price paid.

My second purchase as I use them as a pair - one to drill, one to screw. Excellent value. Batteries last well.
