this is just about my favorite thing. certainly my favorite tool. it's ergonomical to the hand and has good weight proportion. the angling allows for tight work environments, and it can be either tough or delicate--depending on the setting. and i have purchased a drill set and it works proficiently in that area as well. the other consideration is that bit sets have started coming out designed for this drill. bits that can not only fit regular, more powerful drills (like the powertools for big jobs), but also designed to work with this tool. sporting a modest six volts, i effortlessly drilled six inch screws through 2x4s the other day. a job no electric screwdriver has ever done before. the day after i purchased one for myself, i was very happy with it. that appreciation has only amplified with time. thus far, i've purchased one for my brother in law, and i'm getting one for my father for christmas. currently he has a 18v cordless drill that weighs about as much as a spare tire, this will ease my father's nerves while attempting small jobs and mostly he uses his cordless drill for small jobs. plus, i got him the adapter so he can use this with ratchet bits. great gift idea.
