Best Drill on the Market.
I'm using this drill at work, and I'm absolutely impressed by the built quality and battery life time of this drill. Don't get misled by the little capacity of the slim pack batteries - because this drill is very energy efficient so they are still lasting longer as their 1.5Ah counterparts from the competition.
I like also the sensitive approach of the speed trigger, which allows to use speeds down to 10rpm.
And last but not least the locking chuck - it really holds the drill bits tight - so no turning and damaging of your bits when the drill bit gets stuck.
I tell all my friends: forget orange, yellow or red - go blue ;-)

Great drill-driver, better that its predecessor
I purchased this drill-driver to replace an older 18V Bosch drill-driver and jigsaw combo that was stolen from my car after a 2011 break-in.
Like its predecessor it is well-balanced, light, and easy to use--only better in every way.
The older drill-driver and jigsaw had served me well through the final years of a garage remodeling and electrical upgrade projects in our 1956 ranch-style home. (The combo was purchased about 2005 to replace a worn-out DeWalt 12V cordless that had met its match during the home upgrade process.)
The new Bosch drill-driver is superior in every respect to the Bosch that was stolen and has been much more fun to use, too. Its greener Li-ion batteries are a big plus for this long-time environmentalist.

Good tool - great size
Easy to handle - good power. The light is a nice feature and battery life is good

Favorite of the 6 drills I own
Lightweight, compact, powerful, durable. Excellant battery life and the 30 minute charger is convenient too!
