Comments about Bosch Tools 18V 1/2" Hammer Drill/Driver:
I've used this drill quite a bit since purchase, and and impressed with the power and build quality. I've used it for various jobs - even drilled 5/8" holes through double-brick walls. Aside from prudently letting the motor cool off after every couple of holes & swapping out the slim battery when needed, it was the workhorse I needed. Much better than dragging around a long, heavy-gauge extension cord for those smaller jobs.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Hammer works better than expected
from California, United States
I have yused this for more than a year now and I have to say I have been surprised by how well the hammer feature has worked for the times I needed it. Plenty of power, decent action. You won't get the best hammer bits for this, but at the level of a handyman, its better to have one tool to carry around than two. I do like the Makita and Dewalt lights more than this setup, but

The drill feels great in my hand and the smaller battery packs are not only nice and light but they last quite a long time. The only negative thing I can think of is that the drill doesn't fit into the case when the belt clip is attached.
Good, not great.

When in hammer mode drilling hard concrete the clutch setting rotates from vibration out of drill mode down to a clutch setting. The chuck has loosened on more than one occasion when drilling large holes. The drill struggles to drill holes larger than 3/4" in wood in high speed. More light please. The hammer drill function is very good. I have dropped it without any negative impact on the tool. The new batteries are a big improvement and the smaller charger is really appreciated.

Light, strong, and very durable
from Greenwood, South Carolina
I got this hammer drill in late September 2013, and have used it on several projects since then. It is a very powerful instrument, and I have absolutely not regrets about purchasing it. It is hard to go wrong with a Bosch tool. I really like the lithium battery pack and its speed in recharging -- compared with the old NiCad batteries used by DeWalt and others. My only negative is the size of the plastic case. It is huge, and I have abandoned the box and gone to a fabric tool box.

from Colorado Springs, CO
Have installed two good sized decks in the last two weeks and this drill has kept up well. Nice and compact and comfortable to use throughout the day.
The lightest, smartest and toughest drill I have ever used....
from Donna, Tx
I am in the security business so I do so much drilling on a daily basis my expectations were high to begin with and this drill has excelled at everything. Concrete, it laughs as its pushing the bit in. Wood, like a hot knife thru butter. The batteries, wow, finally, a battery that lasts as long as promised. I was also impressed with the location of the LED light you can actually see the screw, unlike others that cast a shadow over it. The handle is comfortable and the drill well balanced. It packs a punch for something so small and light...very well done Bosch team!!!
