The difference between this and the drill is basically just the chuck. The advantage of this tool is the quick change chuck, however that limits you to 1/4" hex drive bits. While you can find some drill bits with a hex shank, they will be in more limited sizes and cost more. There is also some inherent wobble in the connection which makes really precise drilling more difficult.

The advantage of a drill's 3-jaw chuck is that it will clamp down on any shape shank up to it's maximum size (3/8" or 1/2"). This obviously takes longer to swap out bits, but you can just use a hex adapter (included with most drive bit kits).

If it's one or the other, I'd say get the drill before the driver because of its expanded abilities at the minor cost of slower bit swaps. That being said, I appreciate the value of this tool and gave the deal a thumbs up.

Pretty good price for what's included. I just picked up the screwdriver a few weeks ago from HD for $99 with a second free 3.0 battery for the same price. This one has two of the smaller batteries instead of the one large one small, but really I prefer it with the smaller batteries, and the light and bits are a nice bonus. Also have that flashlight and it's pretty good.

Nice kit for the technicians, electricians, installers, woodworkers, or anyone else who can appreciate the control and finesse that a clutched screw driving tool like this provides. However, the only real advantage that this provides over a 12v drill is the quick and easy bit changes of the hex chuck.

This is a great deal. I have this screwdriver and its very handy. One thing I dont understand is why people always go for drill instead of this screwdriver. In my 4 years of owning a house, 90% of what I do for regular fixing and DYI is driving screw rather than drilling holes. I understand if you are a pro (but then you wont use the M12 series), but driving screws are far more common and drilling. And for occasional drilling that I needed to do, this screwdriver does is all well and good, may be a little slowly but works fine.

I would agree that a screwdriver is more useful for a normal homeowner, but a drill/driver is more versatile and more necessary (meaning, you can always find a normal screwdriver while drills aren't so easily replaced). Plus, you don't usually have to change bits so often that's it's a big deal, I would think. Just guessing, of course.

I've been looking for the brushless screwdriver on sale and can't find it anywhere, yet the brushless impact is easily found.

I do carpentry for a living and I use mostly M12 tools. My M18 tools are collecting dust other than occasional real heavy duty work and tools that I only have in 18 volt variety.

Does this drive screws better than an impact driver? What's the difference?

that kit from HD actually had 2 of the smaller batteries and the 3.0 battery as well, right?
