I am a carpenter and I know my drills.
DeWalt is nice.

here is the deal, now days there 2 kinds of drills Impact and Regular.
Impact Drills are smaller and lighter and just as or more powerful. The down side is that they don't do every thing, like Adjustable speed or hammer drill.
On the job site I use a impact about 90% of the time. If you want to do more Drilling Holes than Driving screws this may not be the choice for you.


Next is the Original Cordless Drill, A little bigger and heaver but is the most versatile.
Most cordless drills today come with hammer drill, standard drill, and adjustable speeds/torque. Hammer drill is handy for drilling in to very hard material such as concrete, tile, stucco, etc. The Adjustable speeds are great for a number of things. Lower speeds are good for things like screws in to drywall, where as faster speeds are better for screws in to metal.

The #1 thing that I recommend is to check the batteries before you buy anything cheap or expensive. Make sure you get Lithium ION!!!
Lith ion is 1000 times better than every thing els. it lasts 5 times longer, it charges faster, its overall life is longer, and you get way more power out of it. All the major brands carry lith ion now. It used to be that 18V was the industry standard for a decent drill, but sense the introduction of lith ion, I am seeing some SWEET 12 kits out there these days. Stay away from the Milwaukee 12 kits it is garbage! been there done that.

this Is my #1 recommendation for a DIY, case modder, home owner.


One last thing, Im not a DeWalt Fanboy. I just used them for my pictures. If you go to a major job-site in the USA, the three major brands you see people using are:
BOSCH
DeWalt
Makita

Ditto; also the Li-Ion are a lot lighter than NiCd; not just in terms of the battery weight, but also the tools themselves are lighter.

It used to be that general contractors used to use primarily DeWalt, but since Bosch stepped into the US market about a decade ago their tools are becoming more commonly used; probably in part due to some of their revolutionary designs such as gravity rise stands/dollies for their table/miter saws.

I personally have an ever growing collection of Bosch tools and when we have contractors here for large jobs they like to use my Bosch benchtop tools, often saying they're the best tools they've ever used.
