Works perfect. I've been dragging my electric drill and assorted extension cords (there never seems to be a plug where you are working) for years and always talked about getting a cordless drill.
What drew me to this model were:
1) 1/2" drive - don't buy one of the smaller drives, you will be sorry
2) The Dewalt name - I have other Dewalt power tools and they all do exactly what they are suppose to do, every time
3) Lithium Ion battery - lithium ion is the only way to go to power cordless tools. Nothing can match it and cost wise it is a great value
4) Compact size - around the house I am often doing jobs in tight spaces. This has fit everywhere I have tried to use it
5) Two batteries plus charger included - this is a HUGE bonus with this kit. You always have a fully charged battery available should the inserted battery run out of juice. Plus the charger does a 1/2 hour full charge.

I purchased this product to replace a much older DeWalt Drill. This product far surpasses my old drill in every way accept noise volume. This drill is much louder than most drills I have used, but the power, longevity and light weight more than makes up for the increase in volume.
Overall a great product.
