Hitachi DV18DVC2/JD 18V 1.2Ah Ni-Cd Cordless Combi Drill
Great VFM Set
Was looking for a replacement for my faithful old combi (dropped from a ladder) and it was a toss up between this and the other Hitachi Li-Ion version at the same price, but the three batteries swung it and I have to say I'm very happy thus far, everything arrived quickly, I had two batteries charged in an hour and this really is a punchy little beastie (in fact I managed to strip out a screw head being a little over enthusiastic). Too early to tell about long term performance or reliablity but with a 3 year gaurentee and for the price this is currently the best deal out there...

Great product at a great price
A good drill driver at a very competitive price. Worked out cheaper than buying replacement batteries for my old drill.

Too early yet to comment on reliability (although you forced me to tick a box - so I ticked 3), however, been using it for a few weeks now and very impressed with the way it handles. It's fairly compact so gets close to most work-pieces. It's weighty so stable in your hand. Very wide range of preset torques so enables good control to drive screws flush into wood, Hammer action is good. Easy to interchange drill bits, It comes with 3 batteries - and you need them. They charge up quickly which is just as well because there's not a lot of life in them. Alarming at first, but once you set up your charger, with 3 batteries there's always one ready as one dies. Glad I bought this and not my old make!
