I recently purchased this drill as a replacement for a Milwaukee. As always, Amazon's shipping was very quick and arrived in perfect shape.
PROS: This drill's power is stout. Nothing that I have attempted so far has been able to slow it down.
The trigger is sensitive enough to manipulate for fine screw insertion.
The light is useful and stays on for a couple of seconds after the trigger is released. It is really useful in shaded or darkened areas.
The drill is heavy, but for the power it generates, well worth it.
The chuck is steel and grips bits solidly.
The "slide in" style batteries are excellent and easy to put on and take off. These type of batteries also allow for a slimmer handle which I find more comfortable than the older ones with the "post" style battery.
CONS: It is a little big for smaller or more delicate jobs - kind of like trying to sink a finishing nail...
I bought this to replace a 10 year old Makita that had a lot of use and I thought was a pretty good drill but battery replacement was becoming a hassle and expensive. I am stunned by how much better this DeWalt is. Have all cordless drills gotten this good after 10 years? I don't know but WOW!
My first major project using it was to build a shed in which I pretty much fastened together exclusively with 2 to 3 1/2" screws. Absolutely no problem, and I only went through 3 battery charges. It's amusing that it comes with a fast charger when it takes me a week to run the battery down. Amazing.
Awesome torque, awesome battery life, awesome chuck, it's a winner.
Update: I was so impressed by this drill that I went out and bought their 20V impact driver and circular saw. Both are very impressive as well. I never thought I'd say this but I'm done with corded power hand tools.
I bought this drill for my Dad last Father's Day. He absolutely loves this drill. In particular, he praises the long battery life with the rapid charging batteries. He used to have an old Black and Decker that was a decent drill, but if the battery died, work was done for the day. There was no way your could charge the battery back up within even a few hours. It seemed like an overnight kind of deal. Another great thing about this drill is the balance and feel in your hand. It's not too heavy, but still feels substantial. The drill has a lot of power and doesn't have trouble drilling through wood, metal or cement. I would highly recommend this product.
