I keep this out in the garage as a quick go to for a simple job. It has a good warranty(3 yrs) and will do basic jobs. For the price, it was well worth it, but don't expect miracles.
Pros: inexpensive
Cons: not as powerfull as higher voltage units
I would recommend this to a friend!

I was surprised by the small size of the drill.but after handling the drill for a while I realized that it's compact size is an advantage. This drill is a useful tool for odd jobs around the house and elsewhere. It has good power and sufficient battery life at an economical price to be a welcome addition to any tool kit.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Please note, I've been using my Makita 9.6v cordless drill for 25 years and it's the only one I know... so upgrading to this was a real challenge for me because I didn't know... do I or don't I? Do I do this one or go with a $100 drill?
For $20 I felt it was worth the try and since batteries are $20/ea and one can NEVER EVER have a cordless drill without a spare battery...I bought a 2nd one a week later.
I have had a chance to use it and I was pleasantly surprised.
It is not a powerful as my older Makita however it is fast when drilling. It was straining when screwing in a 3" wood screw into a board but it did it.
For small tasks around the house, I believe that this drill will be just fine. For larger jobs, like building projects or if you're in the trades and you'll use the device on a very regular basis... you will need to upgrade to something else. This is made for every day tasks, but not tasks that one would do in the trades. It's just not powerful enough.
The unit was a nice size, it was well balanced and I LOVE the charger... the battery slides on and off... it's low profile.
So, I recommend this for the average homeowner/apartment owner that needs a good cordless drill for small tasks.
I would recommend this to a friend!
