I love this set. I am a picky consumer who pays attention to product design, build quality and how products wear and tear.
This set is light weight, powerful for 12V, very comfortable plus they look awesome. Especially the impact driver which has a squarish front end similar to a NASA drill.
The impact driver has 3 lights on it which illuminate the work areal beautifully. I do wish the drill had the same lights, but it doesn't. It has one near the trigger like most others.
This set fits in my hands VERY comfortably - much more so than the red brand and others who put the battery in the handle.
Overall super happy with this set, and love using them.

Dewalt did this drill well- the battery life is good but not phenomenal. It also seems to not hold a chucked item too well unless you really crank down on it. IE, when i put in a say a hex driver, and then free-wind the drill motor a couple times (coming to an abrupt stop), the stopping action actually loosens the chuck and the tool falls out. This won't happen if you tighten it up pretty well. The impact driver is LOUD when it is impacting. I didn't anticipate this. Its also very weak unless its impacting. While impacting, it does a good job, and the lights on it are nice for night work. both tools hang nicely from a belt and are super handy that way. I don't like the charger- it emits a high frequencey whine when pluged in, charging or not. I also don't like it that the battery sits on the charger "continually charging, remaingin topped off indefinitly" when its done charging. that really bugs me. I think it should turn off when done charging like my makita unit does. but, maybe i don't know whats best for these new LI-ION batteries. I just know they are finicky has heck and you don't want to do anything bad to them or they will have a short, wretched life. so I unplug the charger and remove the battery- as I would have a battery sitting on the charger for weeks sometimes between charges (I don't use the units tOOoo much, home use). Though when I do use them heavily, its very nice to have the 3rd battery to switch out. Ah, I did notice that the impact driver did not hold a drill concentrically (hex-driven drill)...it wobbled a bit. This doesn't seem to matter though, it worked ok but surprised me by the lack of concentricity. would I buy this again? probably. the power is OK to good, but I can over-come it without too much trouble. I can drive a 3" sheet rock screw into wood and sink it- this is nice. The impact driver will also eventually get a screw in that deep. I had to use the slow setting on the chucked unit to get enough power to sink some heavier lag screws (3" long, thick, phillip head driven). That was annoying- but I should have expected it I suppose. My old makita would have sunk them in high gear I think. I may look at the 18v makita set next as this chuck only takes a 3/8" drill. The 18v makita set isn't too much bigger either. though it costs a bit more. and weighs quite a bit more.

My kids bought these for me for my birthday. I have a lot of the 18v DeWalt drills, drivers, circ saw, etc and was not sure if these would stand up. They have been a great alternative to those larger tools for small repairs and woodworking tasks. Highly recommended.

This is by far the best cordless drill/impact set I've ever had. It easy light weight and easy to use with all the power that I could want. Would highly recommend this product. I will only buy this brand of tool in the future.

Compact, lightweight and plenty of power. Chuck on drill was wobbly, but the local store swapped out the drill and the new one runs true.

Only had these for about 3 weeks so far Used it so far for mostly trim screws in the car and other light duty stuff. I also used it a few times for drilling holes in thin plastic and it has worked fine. I had to drill out a bunch of thick powdercoat from a hole and it was plenty powerful for that. I haven't used it yet to drill metal or drive screws. I would use the impact for that probably. I have used the impact for a few small car projects, and it has been great. The small size and light weight have been really great. It's hard to beat with the extra free third battery and case. The case is just a zippered cloth bag that holds both tools and probably a few other small things, though I am not sure I will use it much because they both fit in the toolbox.

i would recommend this to everyone...everyone. I just bought a house and these fun little kickers did the job. the impact will drive 3in screws in to knots with ease. I am telling you that I have bought every other drill out there being that I am a professional maint. Tech I go through tools. U will not regret it. I just cant say enough about them. ...... OK co cons. well it sucks cuz you cant put them down lol I guess that's not a con ether.

Excellent Battery life.
