Great drill for the price. While you may not have the flexibility to use it wherever you want, due to having to plug it in, you also do not have to worry about the drill bogging down with extended use due to the battery life dying out. We have both cordless and corded drills, we just make sure we use the right drill for the right job. Have been able to use this drill from installing new doors to drilling a hole in the brick of my house. Satisfied thus far.
I'm not one to write reviews, but feel compelled after the abuse this drill has taken on a recent project. First, you should understand the obvious limitations of the tool. This is not a heavy duty drill intended for regular use in concrete. If this is important to you, then you may want to consider another model. While this is a hammer drill, it lacks the power, RPM (1,000), and BPM (16,000) to be of regular use, or for larger holes. Occasional hammer use with smaller bits will take a little time to drill, but it works as advertised. As a reference point, one of the professional brand hammer drills has about 2,800 RPM and 48,000 BPM. Second, this drill is heavier than some of the competition. I've had this drill for several years, and have used it for regular DIY work, and home improvement without issue. However, I hadn't used the hammer mode very much. This changed when I recently had a need to install an in-ground pool cover, which required 30 3/4" holes, about 3 inches deep. The media for these holes was 25 year old concrete with lots of aggregate, which sounded like a death sentence for this drill. I figured I would use it, and see how far I could get before the drill broke. I started with a fresh bit, and proceeded to drill away... The job went slowly, because of the limitations detailed above, and it beat the **** out of my body for the several hours it took to drill the holes. In this time, the drill got so hot that it was impossible to touch the metal casing, but it never stopped. On about hole number 27, the plastic chuck cover slipped the retaining clip and fell off, but the drill continued to work. I was able to finish the job without the plastic cover, and managed to get all 30 holes drilled on a hot summer afternoon. After the drill cooled down, I removed the chuck, and reinserted the plastic cover with retaining clip. Amazingly, the drill continues to work to this day just as well as it ever has. I have since purchased a professional hammer drill for future concrete work, as I have no plans to use the hammer mode on this drill again. However, this one keeps on ticking, so I can't justify getting rid of it...
Great drill! Really heavy duty and powerful enough to get through the toughest materials. The built in bubble levels work great, too!. Only issue with the product was a strange whirring sound and some black rubber/foam stuff coming out from the chuck when I first got it and used it, but as soon as that stopped coming out, no other issues.

The 8 amps is incredible. The first time I used it I almost drilled the screw deeply into the wood. I learning to control the power as I drill screws into my fence project.
Just like (drill that doesn't stop review) I had a very similar experience with this drill. As an Elect Tech Forman I have used industrial professional brands all the time and they worked flawlessly. I had always wanted a hammer drill for home use. I originally though this was a good deal being a Craftsman brand. I purchased it about a couple years ago and used it to sink 3 Tapcons worked ok then I put it away for a year. This year I used it to sink 6 more Tapcons. I press the side button in for continuous control and then it would not shut off. It was like the energizer bunny just keep going and going. At this point it is no use to me. I cannot control it and it not safe to use. I really expected better. I may seek to replace the switch. I cannot in good conscience recommend this product. It a throw away item buy it for your project but don't expect much more.
