Does not need to be. Compact, light weight, not an overpowering or uncontrolled "impact". Brushless or not. This has its purpose and a niche but it is not everything.

Brushless is in theory a more efficient motor with more power for its size but.... you do not get something for nothing and it's not a slam dunk. There are good and bad brushed and brushless things and not all brushless things are better than all brushed things. A bushed motor is a much simpler design internally for the speed controller and cheaper. To offer brushless which is more complicated and expensive at a competitive price point requires design decisions that skimp and save elsewhere. Often, cheap crappy internal electronics for the more advanced speed controller that run brushless equipment is its failure. To make something brushless just to be brushless has a marketing advantage though as the subtle changes with a cheaper chuck, smaller bearings, plastic/nylon instead of sintered metal etc. are overlooked. When is the last time you saw a battery/powered tool that bragged or touted its internal design, type of ESC, bearings, chuck or head design? They don't, they just say "It's Brushless" and most people deduce that's better.
You are correct, because it doesn't have a chuck like a drill or drill/driver would. However, changing screw bits is a snap with this, holds hex bits more securely than a chuck that is meant for round bits, and you can buy drill bits with hex shanks. It comes down to what you would use the tool primarily. Bosch makes very good and durable tools.
Bosch is THE best brand for just pure quality. You pick up their tools and it's something special.

Nonetheless I still sold my 12v max stuff and went Milwaukee. Wider selection, almost as small and light, not expensive used, and they have an amazing M12 shop vac among other great things. Plus they are not very expensive and easy to buy in the states, and constantly innovating.

Am I correct that you cannot use a normal drill bit with this? This is only a driver, not a drill/driver right?

Thanks. Yeah I saw Amazon had some packages with hex shanks. I'd rather not buy all new bits if possible.

The chuck on this driver will take any 1/4" hex shank drill or driver bit. If it's not a 1/4" hex shank, it won't work.

The PS21 Pocket Driver is essentially the PS31 [amazon.com] standard drill chuck Drill Driver, but with a more compact, quick release chuck. The PS31 will accept any bits, hex or round, up to 3/8" shank diameter.

Best to have separate drill and driver tools, if one can afford them.

Just looking for something for the office, but needs to do both drill/drive as I don't want/need 2 units for an office situation. Its a very occasional use but I don't want to have to bring my personal tools in.

If you don't need the compactness of the Pocket Driver or the quick bit change feature, then get the regular drill driver with the standard 3-jaw chuck, as it will work with any style of bit.

If you need that is better to wait for da drill driver combo set. The hart one was recently only 79, and set of these not much more

The combo set was $99 about a month ago. I bought it last May from Lowes at the same price. I usually set the combo set for $99 a couple times throughout the year.

I have this and it's one of my most used tools. I also have the drill and impact from this line and they are great too. The combination of a quick change hex bit holder and clutch is perfect for driving fasteners in soft wood, plastic or other applications where you can easily over torque the fastener.

My Bosch drill/driver is from 2011 and still working fine but it's probably about time to start looking for new batteries for it. Might buy this just for the batteries. Wish it was this deal with the impact driver.
