The innovative impact mechanism absorbs the twisting action associated with most other drills and applies it to the work piece so your hand doesn't twist with the tool.

I purchased this specifically because I wanted a light on the tool for working in darker places. I was very disappointed when I learned that the light wouldn't come on until the drill was spinning. In my opinion, the purpose of a light is to get the tool onto the screw, but if the tool is already spinning to get the light, how can you put the tool on the screw?
A good light design needs to have the light come on with the trigger slightly depressed to see what you are doing, and then the second stage starts the motor spinning. Shame on the engineers for making a useless light.
Compact size lets it get in tight spots. My driver has held up well, plenty of power for light automotive use. Quick charging. A must have if you own any of the other Nextec powered tools.
First of all, I have to say, from a design standpoint, this tool is awesome. It really is an impressive design, and I have to give credit where it's due. The fit and finish seems really nice, and I like that it's built with Phillips head screws for easy repair. The ergonomics are great for any task, and the 1/4 inch quick connect chuck is done very well, and even long bits have very little wobble, when compared to other tools with 1/4 inch quick connect. I am however, very disappointed with the variable speed trigger. It has three steps: slow, full, and off. That's it. They're really no true variable trigger. The motor is also very unpleasant sounding. While it doesn't sound broke, the sound is hardly appealing. And, so there is no confusion, this tool does not come with the cool quick boost charger, just the good old plain charger and 1 battery. Overall, I'd have to say, it's worth buying when it's on sale. At full price? Not so much.
I haven't had the chance to use it as an impact nut driver yet, but with a chuck adapter it is a wonderful close-quarters drill. It has the power to drive even large bits easily into hardwood. The only problem I have had is that the slowest speed with the variable speed trigger is too fast to start small flat or Philips screws.

after purchasing this tool i bought a truck that had a front end wreck. i used this tool all day non stop taking it apart and putting it back together and it never skipped a beat! buy it you will not regret it!
i've used this on the cars, home, and just stuff...it's small and ever so handly. i got it on a great sale months and months back. it works fine and packs a punch.
