Good, but with a few flaws
on 15 November 2010
I bought the Bosch to replace a Draper. I can't say I was that impressed with the presentation tin, as its design allowed all the contents to become dislodged in transit and rattle around.
The tool itself is pretty good, but could have been improved in the following areas :
1) The direction button is easy to knock, thereby enabling the spindle lock
2) The LED could be a lot brighter (not as good as the Draper)
3) You have to charge the screwdriver on its base unit. This is quite bulky, and as a field service engineer, space in my toolcase is a luxury I don't have - I would've preferred to see a charging jack and a plug.
4) The rubber cap where the accessories fit onto the tool is easy to lose
So far, it performs pretty well, with the angled adapter being especially useful. It seems to have quite a good usage on a full charge, and a reasonable level of torque.
