Many interesting answers posted here. I have been selling cordless drills for many years and I will tell you the same thing I tell anyone who comes to my counter. The best drill for you is what you are comfortable with. How balanced in your hand it is. How much you want to spend and how often you are going to use it. Feel them out and decide what you like, then you will have the best cordless drill in the world. Keep in mind, Black and Decker makes Dewalt, Bosch makes Skil, so on and so forth. If you use it a lot and you may abuse it more than the average home user then I would recommend an Industrial drill (go to an industrial supply company like Fastenal, not Home Depot or Lowes). Always check out the type of carrying case you want, number of batteries supplied, ease of charging and charge time. Bottom line is, it is your money and your preference. I personally prefer a Bosch Industrial 14.4. I like the weight, the feel, the color (it is not that yellow thing that everyone else has) and I have owned one for years, dropped it off a two story roof, left it out in the snow and abused it but it keeps charging up and running like the day I bought it. Good luck with your quest!
