Good price. Personally, I am waiting for a brushless model but I am willing to pay a premium for that.
This seems perfect for the casual homeowner.

I have this with the same lighter batteries, kind of subjective but I built a playset and the two batteries lasted me a day.

Only 30% runtime of 5.0Ah batts. No thanks, I don't buy junk.

Is this the same as an "impact driver"?

These batteries are a lot smaller and lighter than 5ah batteries, and they charge quicker too. So quick that one will be recharged before you use up the other one, providing essentially endless run time.

No, this is a regular drill driver.
  • Drill Driver: for drilling holes and light to moderate screw driving. It has a chuck that takes a wide variety of bits and has a clutch to precisely control the force used when driving screws.
  • Hammer Drill: A beefed up drill that can also hammer the bit in and out to help pulverise the material being drilled, such as concrete.
  • Impact Driver: uses rapid and powerful rotational impacts to increase driving torque for larger and longer screws or bolts into tougher materials. It lacks a clutch for precise screw driving control and it only accepts 1/4" hex shank bits.
  • Impact Wrench: The most powerful of the bunch, used mainly for loosening tight bolts in automotive type applications. It takes sockets without any torque robbing adapters.

Suppose I'm building a deck or a small shed-- would I want the extra torque of the Impact Driver in that case?? And is there any danger of an Impact Driver ruining my walls for a smaller project like hanging a flatscreen?

Driving screws is much faster with an impact driver, but it lacks the precise control of a drill driver and is much more likely to tear wood fibers or strip out the hole resulting in loss of holding power. If you are only getting one tool, I would recommend the drill driver and in cases where it doesn't have enough oomph to drive a screw, just pre-drill a pilot hole. That's the way it was done before impact drivers came on the scene and it causes less tearing of the wood, but takes much longer. But sets that include drill drivers and impact drivers often come up for sale for much less than the cost of the individual tools purchased separately, so I would wait and get both.

Bigger does not make it better IMO, for a drill/driver application one does not require the extra current larger batteries provide. Those 4-5 Ah batteries are geared more for hammer drills, circular/recip saws where the extra current and run time are useful and fully utilized. I have a couple M18 5 Ah batteries but I cant remember the last time I put one on my impact over the 2 Ah I use.
