Great drywall drill
The cordless drywall drill is great! I haven't met a dewalt product that I don't like yet. I am remodeling the whole house and used a corded drywall drill for the first floor, and couldn't be happier to get a cordless drywall drill for Christmas.

Great Product
Took a little messing with to adjust the nosepiece but then it worked like a champ. Great product for the drywall and trim work for which I got this tool.
