Purchased yesterday and started using the drill after charging both batteries (took about 50 minutes combined). Plenty of power and torque for what I needed (hanging cabinets, installing shelving). Didn't have to use the 2nd battery and the first battery still had 3 lights left (out of 4) when I put the battery back on the charger about 3 hours later.
Compact size, light weight, bright LED light that is positioned well...overall I am very happy with it.
Registered for the Lifetime Service Agreement this morning and sent the required info off. They say to allow 10 - 12 weeks for confirmation; I'll update the review when I receive it.
A couple things: First, you are NOT getting two X4 items, only the impact driver is X4, the drill is the fuego version. Still, drill, driver, two batteries, charger, bag and lifetime guarantee for only $179 (and I got the 10% military discount on top of it, so $162)...no reason to complain!!!
Second, the Home Depot site shows this as "online exclusive", however the local HD had about 30 of them on display for the same price.
