Great value

You can find this set for ~$300 at most places and it is a great value. Extremely light and well balanced allows you to use it for long periods of time without feeling any fatigue. The small form factor also allows it to fit in places that most other 18V drills would not be able to dream about going. Still tons of power and torque despite the small size too. Even the LED light is a lot more useful than I thought it would be. Helps a ton if you are working in inadequate lighting conditions and I've even used it as a flashlight on occasion!



The only real complaint you could possibly warrant against it is the batteries don't last terribly long. However they only take 15 min to charge and the drills also accept the larger, longer lasting Makita batteries if it really becomes a problem for you.

Pros
15 min charge time, really light, lots of power
Cons
short battery life
