Direct Power DPB084DRL 750W Percussion Drill 230V
I bought this drill more than a year ago, it's been in regular use and is very reliable. The lockable variable speed is very useful, allowing it to be used for screwdriving.
Had a problem with the chuck recently; one of the other reviews mentions the lock feature and just pull the collar back and hey presto, problem solved!

very good budget drill
a very good budget drill still going very strong after a year and a half constant use mixes plaster well built many stud walls and drill through all but concrete where sds needed as usual. chuck lock is good feature as the bosch chuck i used kept working loose mixing plaster this does not.

I was a little concerned about the comments on the chuck but I thought that they might have corrected the problem by now. The first time I used it the chuck did lock and I was going to take it back but I decided to read the instructions first. The chuck lock is a feature of the drill, you pull the collar back and it will release. I have only used the drill once but am very pleased with its performace and power. Very good value for money. (hope it stays that way).

Before buying I had read an earlier post about the chuck seizing but thought it may just be bad luck.
However after purchase my chuck seized within the first half hour & I returned for a refund. It's a shame because it has some great features for a super price but obviously has a chuck fault.
