I love Makita tools. That's what I use, I have many 18v. Makita, DeWalt, Milwaukee,, it's like Ford, Chevy, Dodge. Everyone has a preference, but all are top line, Excellent tools. Far and away better than Porter Cable, Craftsman, Ryobi (though I do use Ryobi too for my less used tools, and they are very good, best of the second
tier tools in my opinion) . Brushed or brushless? Won't matter for a homeowner. The power is the same, it's just a matter of how long the battery lasts. I would personally go brushed top tier main tools over brushless second tier. Ryobi has really changed the game though, bridging the gap between homeowner grade and contractor grade. For the price, their nailers are game changers.

I own this set (ct226) and have the CLPK22-120 kit (as well as a PS42-02) at work.

The Bosch's live in our datacenters and are are used almost exclusively for mounting rack-mount hardware - although I did take the kit home a few years ago for a weekend for various things while we were building our home (before I bought the Makita kit.) Though the drill was a tad bit underpowered for the 1" holes I was drilling through joists, it was only about 10 holes and it got the job done.

Point being: I really like all of them. The PS42 is clearly the best of the drivers, but that's to be expected as it's brushless. But as to the CLPK22 vs Makita question: get whichever is cheaper. (The only reason we bought the ps42 was we needed it right then and due to a sale it was basically the same price as a ps41, so why not?)

For me, the 12v batteries are more than enough for most household things. I also own an older 18v Dewalt drill (well, 5-piece kit) and the NiCad batteries died long ago. This kit has kept me from buying additional batteries because they've been "good enough" for everything I've done.

If you're buying these for just odds and ends jobs around the house: go for it. If you're buying these to use ALL the time on jobsites, well, don't. Get something more powerful. But these batteries do seem to last me for MONTHS at a time.

Side note: bought mine from HD back in 2016 for $69. https://slickdeals.net/e/8486597

Does anyone know how this compare to the Bosch 12V drill/driver sets (CLPK22) ?
Or the CLPK27 set which I have previously seen etc?
So many choices, all quite confusing ....

I have a few of the makita 12 volt tools. Never had a problem with them . I don't have the drill or driver but would not hesitate based on my experience with makita.

I've used the Milwaukee and DeWalt 12 volt drill/driver set and this are just as good if not better just bear in mind this aren't brushless

edit:
I think, this kit comes with a Makita drill model FD05Z, which may not be as good as the Makita model PH05R1 (drill/hammer driver - normally sold standalone).

Perhaps I should just wait for BF deals?

Makita is high quality. Milwaukee is great, especially their m12 fuel series but Makita still withstands the test of time with me. You could have this set for 10 years without any issues. You would only need brushless or 18v if you needed higher torque for drilling into heavy wood or drilling metals or loosening tight bolts, but this is a great all around drill set for 100.

Better off going with Milwaukee if you are looking at 12 volt based on price and tool line up.

Subcompact line has been on sale at Home Depot, but the best values are/were bundle deals. Ex: free circ saw or rotary hammer with purchase of 3-tool kit.

I have both 18 and 12, I mainly use the 12 as it's light and super portable. The 18 only comes out when a job demands for it. Especially this combo comes with the impact, there's less reason for the 18 full time.

But if you only own one set, get a 18v.

You own a sub compact 18v? Because it's the best of both worlds, 18v torque with the weight and portability of 12v light. It's like the Nintendo switch of drill / driver haha
