DO not listen to guy above, he should've done his research before purchasing. [...] I purchased this on black friday for [$]. Great buy and great price. This drill is worth the retail price, so I am not sure why the guy above me is complaining. [*] ANyways, if you want a good drill for around-the-house use, this is great. Even better if you got a good deal like I did

I have had and used the DeWalt cordless drill for several years in my woodworking/electrical shop. I was very pleased with its power and battery life, although I had to have every single one of my batteries rebuilt by Battery Plus. My only complaint was that the drill motor burned out. True, I had been putting 3" SCREWS into Oak lumber, but the drill had done that before. I was using it one morning in my shop and smoke started pouring from the drill motor and it lost all its torque. I have never had it rebuilt because I have other cordless drills that are just as good.

Comments about Dewalt 1/2in 18V Heavy Duty Cordless Compact Drill/Driver Kit (DC970K-2):

Love the drill and ease of use. The only downside is I have small hands and although I can handle the drill power, I find it a bit heavy after an extended period of use.

                The drill/driver is great overall. However if you are in a hurry to get one, pay for the freight, the free freight to the store is quite lacking. the web sight did not show that the drill had shipped until it had arrived at the store. The store never called, I had to call them.

                        Have used this model for 8 years and buy these kits for the batteries and the spare drill.
                        Have not used a corded drill since I got this as part of the circular saw, light, reciprocating saw and this drill/ driver kit. I use the drill driver to remove and install decks and hang drywall, Batteries last about an hour on drill which is excellent. But the extra batteries and charger are a bargain and "free" drill to get through a job without dragging a corded drill or saw. Especially handy for hanging gutters. #1 tool in my tool box.

                          I've been wanting a cordless drill for a long time, and after reading many reviews, I chose the Dewalt. It was on sale, and had good reviews.
                          I've used it several times. It has torque control, and two speeds. I haven't used it long enough to run out of batter power, but I will test that in time.
                          The drill is easy to handle, and squares up nicely (even without a leveler onboard). I'm sure I'll get many years use out of such a fine tool.

                            Got this as a first time buy. I always had some hand me downs and this is my first buy. It was a great deal online at Ace and I was happy to jump on the sale. Works great for all my around home tasks.

                              Much better than the last Dewalt I bought 6 years ago.

                                Virtually unstoppable in my experiences to date, even with the Ni-Cad batteries. Mine are over 3 years old and haven't lost a bit of power. I use my DeWalt to remove and replace lug nuts on all of my vehicles. First break them loose and then spin them right off. Start the nuts back on , spin them down and then torque to specs with a torque wrench. Drilled countless holes with Forstner bits and all types of regular bits. I would buy another one in a heartbeat if this one ever dies.

                                  Just started using this drill but after using about a dozen other drills this will undoubtable one of my favorites. I really have no negatives. Great battery life, case, power, weight and fast charging. You just won't be disappointed with this drill.

                                  I have had and used the DeWalt cordless drill for several years in my woodworking/electrical shop. I was very pleased with its power and battery life, although I had to have every single one of my batteries rebuilt by Battery Plus. My only complaint was that the drill motor burned out. True, I had been putting 3" SCREWS into Oak lumber, but the drill had done that before. I was using it one morning in my shop and smoke started pouring from the drill motor and it lost all its torque. I have never had it rebuilt because I have other cordless drills that are just as good.

                                    DO not listen to guy above, he should've done his research before purchasing. [...] I purchased this on black friday for [$]. Great buy and great price. This drill is worth the retail price, so I am not sure why the guy above me is complaining. [*] ANyways, if you want a good drill for around-the-house use, this is great. Even better if you got a good deal like I did
