Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Worst cordless SDS ive had i have all Dewalt gear and this drill lets them all down. Started making bad noises after a month or 2 then after 6-8 moths started working on and off then packed in totally after around 14 months. I took it to the Dewalt factory in Durham and they said its common for these drills to pack in so wont be buying again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Electrician opinion I've got two models. This one and older also xr 18v. First one broke after 12 months. Newer after 3. Do not recommend! If You chisell a lot. Go for more reliable hammerdrill

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Drill features I have bought this for my husband as a Christmas pressie (very early I know but I like to buy through the year). I could not leave a good answer to the performance/reliability review as my hubby had not opened it yet! I have read all the reviews online first and they were excellent. My hubby is an avid DIY person and loves Dewalt products as he loves their reliability. I bought as I felt the cost of the product was much less than I would have expected for the features the product has. I know my husband will play with this item for hours on Christmas morning! Sad I know but there are much much worse things he could be into!!! Ha ha ha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drill You really can't go wrong with this drill. The level of power will surprise you as it's very powerful. 100 % worth every penny. You will find it hard to get a better drill for the price.
