Excellent tool
This tool is the best tool I own for use in wood and fiberglass, both drilling and screwing. It tightens screws tighter than can be tightened by hand without stripping. I have several other impact drivers that are great with more voltage (up to 20V), but this is handy because of its size, and just seems to perform better in wood and fiberglass. Works good with metal, but I generally use one of my other ones for that because of their weight. Surprising how long it can work on a charge, but can't change batteries if it runs out during use. Having said that, I can say that I have never run it down on a single project, even drilling and screwing dozens of times. I have had mine for about a year, and am buying a second one today. I would have done this sooner, but couldn't find one until now.

Great all around the house driver
This is by far the best deal out there for what I was looking for. I need a strong light weight driver for small jobs around the house like putting up blinds. This driver is awesome! It does the job. It's lightweight, yet solid and powerful. Ergonomics on the handle are a bit ackward, but not a big deal at all.

Best drill ever
It never gets heavy. It's super fast but it also has a real sensitive trigger if you need just a half turn or to go slow. I own two for when the battery goes out I can keep working. Charges quick and lasts a long time. Not a replacement for a 20v drill. It's limit would be drilling 1" screws into piloted wood. It's fast, perfect for drywall, electrical, cabinets, knobs, small stuff. Carrying it around all day it's your best friend. Hanging doors I use it with small screws just to the get door up. This is an awesome professional tool.

Duh..! Great little tool, prefect for me.
I use it for almost every thing that needs a screw in or out. The magnets are ideal on top of the tool not only does it hold my bits it also holds extra screws.
