Ive had this drill for a while now and I use it about weekly for one home improvment project or another. It has never let me down. It takes bits in and out with ease and has more than enough power for my novice carpentry and construction skills. Yes it has a cord which can be a pain as extension cords become a nessessity with some of the project locations in relation to the power outlet, but once its in the space I need it functions great. Whether I am drilling or boaring a hole or trying to get a screw in or out of the location its steps up to the plate and meets my needs. The casing over the unit is durable - I admit to having dropped it on many an occasion by accident without havgin it crack or suffer mechanical problems. The cord is durable as well even after a brief chew by my dog that barly nicked the surface. The chuck stays in place that I have temporaily lost it a time or two but when stored in the unit it stays without problem. Good tool to have around the house!
