"I am a lady that enjoys little projects but seems most tools are made for men, was looking for drill that is light weight, I found it. Used it all day today and am happy to report performed much better than I expected had no problem driving a 3" screw in treated wood. Read many reviews before I purchased this and I feel they were right great deal for the price. ( Where is the handylady for describing myself Northern Tool)"

"Very inexpensive product and held up accordingly.
The chuck stripped and it will only hold a screwdriver shaft, worthless at holding a drill bit.
Ya get what ya pay for.

Drill? ..not quite, driver, yeah.

"This "drill / driver" at 550 RPM is not suitable for use as a drill IMHO. It has no two speed provision as I had expected / hoped. 550 RPM makes a good driver (screws, etc.) but is too slow to make it a serious contender as a DRILL. BIG disappointment. I guess I should've known better at the low price."

"Works great holds charge for decent amt of time , would def recommend it. Only wish it had two batteries one to keep on the charger while your using the one In the drill. Charger is a little flimsy but usable."

This cordless drill rocks!

By Sabhead67

"I've spent the same amount of money on well-known brand name drills in the past only to find out they were sub par. I've owned this Genesis Cordless for a few months now and can honestly say I am very impressed. From it's solid build to it's long battery life, this drill performs. The added LED light is a bonus feature that I find invaluable for working in hard to see areas. I am also very surprised by the life of the battery charge. Even after sitting for a week between projects this baby would be ready and roaring to work when called for. This all on a single charge out of the box. I highly recommend this drill to anyone on a budget and who does not let big names sway their purchasing decisions. It is worth noting that the storage case which is included, while being sturdy, does not stay latched properly mostly due to a design flaw. A piece of Velcro strapping can easily remedy this."

Genesis Cordless Drill

,
May 7, 2012
By Bea2702
from Denver, CO
"This drill keeps a charge for a long time. I have found the torque to be more than the other drills that I have used. Easy to change the bit with the keyless chuck, and no key to lose! I love the light that focuses on where you are drilling.
It was very reasonably priced, and easy to use. I am happy with the purchase.
