I'm holding out for brushless 12v drill/drive sets to drop to near $100.

Why? What do you need brushless for?

Shame the PS42 impact driver isn't part of the sales, but the bare tool at $119 shows a free 2Ah battery (a bunch of other bare tools seem to be included as well).

Combine the $99 drill and this and you got a very handy combo (but still pricier and less capable then the red M12 Fuel kits on sale).

Nobody NEEDS brushless, but $100 brushed combo's are common, so I'm not going to spend $100 on a single brushless tool, so holding out for a brushless combo for $100, be a better value

This is my favorite compact drill, and I have had or currently own most of them.

The PS32 is absurdly light, well-balanced, and truly compact. The runtime is amazing. it's as quiet as they come while still being a drill and not a screwdriver. It has the Bosch clutch which actually has a very useful linear sweep of torque settings and it has excellent control under load at low rpms, meaning it can flush the screw without the speed jumping around.

Fantastic for light duty install and assembly. Fantastic to have on your belt. In terms of woodworking, I'm not alone in feeling that it's a better value than the Festool 10.8v.

Every single time I pick up the PS32, I feel good inside, and for a moment I forget about late capitalism and consider what increment of global warming I would exchange to keep my Bosch ps32, which is an even tinier increment thanks to the ec brushless motor.

If I could I'd buy 12 of these rn and be done with Xmas shopping.

For me, the point of 12v tools is light weight, small size, and good ergonomics in a tool that still has a decent amount of functionality. While the M12 Fuel will be more powerful than this Bosch, that extra power is not needed for most tasks and comes with a significant penalty in size.

No, you'll need a hammer drill to drill in brick, stone, cement, rock, etc...

I agree, the Bosch 12V is very handy. But while it can do 90% of the task you'll throw at it, you're going to be wishing you had sacrificed the portability for a bit more power on the other 10%.
At $100 for a drill and driver combo that's a great supplemental in your tool park (or a great starting kit ot learn about your needs that won't be obsolete when you get bigger tools).
$100 for a single tool (being a kit helps of course) it's a bit tougher to recommend given the alternatives.

Or better yet, a rotary hammer.

I just get out the 18v tools if I need more power than my little compact 12v tools can provide. It is always going to be a trade-off between size/weight and power, and for me, I don't see the need to be using a larger more powerful tool than is necessary for what I am doing.

A rotary hammer would probably be significant overkill for a guy just looking to mount a few security lights on his home.

Same here, but I don't think we're a majority here. Most people would question even having a drill + driver since they're a bit redundant.

For a a few small screws you can sweat it. But if you're mounting something like rack shelving in the basement then even the large 18V hammer drills may be struggling.

Is this better deal for $99
Hard call. Without considering the extra tools in the system I'd rather have the Dewalt combo. Considering the overall platform appeal, I'd go for the Bosch.
Looking for a handy kit though, I'd wait till the Bosch previous gen brushed model kits go back on sale for under $100.
