"Witch" = a magician, sometimes considered malevolent, usually depicted as being female.
"Which" = a pronoun denoting an option of one item or another
What's the difference between a 1/2" vs. 3/8" chuck - 1/8" In some cases that really is the entire difference. With pro-level tools, you can expect either to be plenty durable, but the 1/2" will most likely be more powerful, have more internal bracing against deformation, and better cooling.
As to which one is a better tool, DeWalt will certainly be the better tool...but you have to want it. Expect the DeWalt to cost at least twice as much as a B&D of the same capacity. And don't expect the B&D to hold up very long if you intend to use it at a professional level. You cannot wrangle commercial work out of a consumer-grade tool, just forget that right now.
One exception: B&DI - Black & Decker Industrial power tools were seriously heavy duty gear. Easily as robust as anything DeWalt was generating at the time - and probably far superior to them in the larger items - B&DI tools were a perfectly safe investment if you wanted to use power tools in a commercial setting. However I haven't seen them since the 1990's and if you found any for sale now, they've probably been used to death by somebody who really got his money's worth out of them.Source(s): Handyman

They both belong in the same company Stanley Black & Decker
BQ 1/8 The chucks will only accept drill bits/etc with a diameter of 1/2-3/8 respectively

The De Walt Company has the most reputation for manufacturing high quality battery drills & electric capable of giving good reliability for business & home use. However it depends for what you using that drill. Since De Walt is excellent but is also expensive, the Black & Decker is fine for occasional home projects and cheaper. What ever is your choice, I will recommend 18 DC volts or higher if you are going to drive screws like building a deck, floor, walls etc. Good luck...!

As already mentioned, DeWalt is a subsidiary of Stanley Black and Deck, so...it's really not like you're going to be getting something from somebody unrelated.
Technically DeWalt is B&D's high-end professional line, but without knowing your usage level, it's hard to advise you to try it or not.

== if you see that you might be using a drill into concrete then you can get a combo DeW that will do both drill and hammer drill ... the 1/2inch chuck is in front of a tough center shaft and is the better choice for all projects ......DeWalt is the best of your selections ... I like SEARS tools for durability and price ...

I prefer DeWalt.
+++ THE PROS +++
[+ UTILIZES LI-ION TECH]: Li-Ion offers more power in a smaller/lighter package, vs. NiCad and NiMH.
[+ LED GUIDE LIGHT]: Positioned above the trigger. Turns on when you pull the trigger and auto-off after 20-seconds of non-use
[+ 2-SPEED MOTOR]: High speed (up to 2,000rpm) for drilling, Low/Variable speed (up to 600rpm) with clutch for driving
[+ LIGHT WEIGHT]: The 1.5A batteries weigh 12oz each. With battery inserted the total drill weight is 3.5lbs
[+ 2 X 1.5A BATTERIES]: With each 1.5A battery capable of providing several hours of runtime, you're not actually giving up much runtime at all to have a lighter drill (vs. having a single 3.0A battery). That, in combination with the quick-charger being able to charge a battery faster than it takes to drain one...You could actually keep working with the drill on-stop, perpetually.
[+ DUAL VOLTAGE QUICK CHARGER]: Charges a battery in 30min and if you happen to also use Dewalts' 12V MAX line, this charger will charge those batteries as well.
[+ INCLUDES HEAVY-DUTY CARRY CASE]: With the included belt-clip, the drill could just as easily be a part of your tool belt or be in your tool box/chest. But if you like having a place for everything and everything in its' place, then the included case keeps your 20v kit together nicely and should be strong enough for the job site
--- THE CONS ---
[ - ACTUALLY 18V SYSTEM]: At full charge and checked with no load, you get the 20V reading. The actual in-use voltage is 18V. But so as to not confuse this new line with their other 18V lines that don't use Li-Ion, Dewalt calls these the 20V "MAX" system. So you'll need to remove the voltage difference, when doing comparison shopping, to other 18V systems.
