"Always bought Makita gear but decided to have a change. This bit of kit is awesome, its light and super fast 2000 rpm on gear two. My Makita's will be sitting at the bottom of the tool box for a while. If your looking for a drill then stop know, you've found it...Buy it."
"My first De Walt Drill. Awesome power and performance so far (only got it at Christmas) need to have good quality drill bits to make the most of its power on masonry, assss it is too easy to blunt cheap ones. No hesitation in reccomending."
"This is the third DeWalt cordless drill I have bought and they get better each time. This one is particularly light to hold but heavyweight in performance. It does everything you would expect from a premium drill. A nice touch is the light which remains on for a limited period after releasing the trigger."
"I recently purchased one of these drills while on a trip to the usa but it came with only 1 battery so I decided to purchase drill and battery over here as a kit and oh boy this is a brute,and so light weight seems very robust go on buy one you wont be dissapointed!"
"amazing power and speed, its the only drill iv ever used where iv needed to use the tourqe settings. very very fast for driving screws. its better than my impact driver! plenty of low gear torque to really force a 38mm bit through a work top or joist. not as much torque as my 3 speed makita but theres easily enough for the job and with the 1.5ah batteries its compact enough fot the kitchen units but still has a nice heavy weight to it. battery holds a decent amount of charge and because its a german brand it should be quite strong and even if it breaks it has a 3 year garuntee, not warranty, a garuntee. and to top it all off the bit holder is a flat magnet so u can stick any bits to it u want. very nice touch"
"This DeWalt DCD785C1 Cordless Drill was bought for use while on ladders, I've found it easy to reach for on any task. It has good torque which is adjustable; Sits in the hand very comfortably, is very good when used as a screwdriver and the quick charging time (about 30mins for full charge but will work after 10mins or so) means you can survive with only the one battery. I have only had it for 4 weeks so can't honestly comment on durability."
"I hummed and hared about wether to get this drill or not. But I am pleased I did. I works like a dream. It has a little light to show where you are drilling or wherever you shine it. The drill has great power for my needs."
"I did a lot of research on a number of websites before buying this drill for my husband. He previously had a Black and Decker that had lasted decades but was a dinosaur in the world of drills and I thought he deserved something better. I wanted a lightweight (lithium ion) cordless including a light, that would last well and had all the features a competent diy-er was likely to need (from outdoor work to carpentry). This fitted the spec, was very well reviewed everywhere and the Screwfix deal was the best I could find from a company I knew from previous experience to be reliable. The drill arrived very quickly and as a bonus has a sturdy case to keep everything together. My husband is very pleased with it and the only reason I have only given 4 * to performance and reliability is that he has not yet had the chance to fully try it out or test its reliability. The only other thing to add its that I find the search facilities on the Screwfix site excellent, plus the product descriptions are sufficiently comprehensive to be confident of choosing the right product."
