Your wife lives in a different house, too? So does mine. long story....
Anyway, I have one of these and was very impressed by it as a "compact" tool. I expected it to be lighter-duty but it's actually much "beefier" than I expected. I would match it up against any mid-line drill. I have the big DeWalt hammer drills also, very heavy duty, but honestly not comfy to use if you are just doing small household tasks. I use that for larger stuff like hole saws or masonry drilling. I really liked the Atomic, though, as a general all-purpose drill.

I bought mine in the $199 set with impact driver; a few weeks ago there was a "free bonus tool" along with that, and I wanted the Atomic 4 1/2" saw, which individually is $129-149. So basically I got the 3 tools for $199. I like the little saw too.

Wondering if this is better than the RIGID deal form yesterday that I jumped on - https://slickdeals.net/f/14147180-ridgid-18-volt-cordless-2-speed-1-2-compact-drill-driver-kit-black-oxide-drill-bit-set-79-97-free-shipping?attrsrc=Test%3AElasticsearchIntegration%3AControl&src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo.

I don't currently have another tool with either company so I don't have a loyalty based on batteries I'd already have. I don't mind paying another $20 if the performance is better. Anyone have any thoughts?

Tough call, both are about the same value. This is brushless but not dewalts top of the line. It's nice to have two batteries so one can be charging while you're working but 1.3 ah is a joke. The ridgid will tackle pretty much anything around the house just like this guy.

Look at what matters to you. If your not using these for work or needing to build a large collection to use the same batteries, you can be very picky. Some things I found that matter to me are:
  • Weight. Lighter is better, especially when doing much work work overhead.
  • Size: From the chuck to the back of the case to fit in small places, like a narrow cabinet when installing a track.
  • A Light, that's more useful than I ever thought to light up the work area and find that screw head.
  • Power to drill big holes or long screws into tough wood.
  • Smoothness of the variable speed for that last few turns.
  • Clutch setting so you do not overdrive a fastener.
  • Size of chuck, 3/8" or 1/2".Bigger has more options.
  • Batter selection, availability, and price. Small & light works for most tasks around the home, ANd you get two here so one can charge. But on big jobs, like a deck, being able to get a larger battery helps the work keep moving along. Or get multiple batteries to keep it light. I have a other tools with larger batteries I can use here is needed.

Also Brushless tools give you more useable power, longer battery life, and no brushes to replace. But brushes can last a long time. Most homeowner are likely to replace the tool for other reasons before the brushes go. Dropped it too many times, or they don't make the batteries for your tool anymore, or the batteries are so expensive, you may as well get a a new and better kit.

I bought this over Christmas for $99. Size for cabinet work was important to me. I like it for most things I do around the house too. It replaced an old, larger, heavier Dewalt 18 volt drill that was very well used and making lots of noise from worn bearings, very low battery life. Made sense to replace it at this price.

Can't thank you enough for the detail here. Really I'm just looking for something to do odds and ends around the house. The near term projects are getting a mount setup in the living room and bedroom for our TV's and then attaching some magnetic blocks to our cabinets to eventually hang knives. My biggest concern for both of these is if it will have enough power to complete both jobs.

No. The 1.3 ah are the lowest end batteries they make. They sell for about $20 each and the DCD708B drill sells for around $50.

I have to say, I am a little disappointed in this. I am between a do it yourself and an every day contractor. I do like the size, the feel, and variable speed trigger However, my brothers 10 year old Bosch brushed had more power, his old batteries lasted longer than my brand new 2.0, and was less noisy.

Well it's just a light duty tool. Dewalt sells heavier duty drills.

I know. The way they advertise it as just a little less power is questionable. I don't really see a difference from this to they bottle tiered line.

Constantly. Lowe's had a 3-tool kit with drill/driver, impact driver, and light for $159 earlier this week. I almost jumped on that one but I already have an impact driver and just want a second drill.
