Details looked good on paper but in use it lasted only three holes in medium hard tiles. I took it back for a replacement which lasted four holes. Are the more expensive ones any better?

Like others who have commented I had my porcelain tiles chew up any drill bit that I used. Last hope was this and it drilled through in seconds. Strongly recommended.

Got this and an 8mm for drilling holes for fitments in 10mm Porcelain tiles. While the bit cut the first hole in ok time I find the following issues:
* gets hot and this seems to deplete performance. successive holes get slower and slower
* tends to wander - due to the slow drilling it opens the hole larger than intended and can elongate the hole if you are not careful
*Hollow where the wax is situated tends to get blocked up with tile debris - this hampers drilling and allows the bit to overheat. I had to drill the tile debris out at least half a dozen times to continue drilling.
Might be ok for cheaper, thinner tiles, but for thicker porcelain I think I would try a Marcrist bit next time.

I'm doing up my house, and having been given the task to hang a few items in the toilet and bathroom I thought a 20 minute job with the tile drill that I bought.
4 hours and 3 holes later I was almost admitting defeat when the Mrs read about this tile drill. So off I went to buy it not looking forward to having more money and time wasted.
Having attached it to my drill and starting, it literally took less than 20 seconds to drill a hole. All holes drilled and fitted in less than an hour.
I have never loved a tool so much in my life!!!!
Thank you Mr Erbauer.
