    for home diy this is more than adequate - mine is 5 years old and still going strong

    How do you know have you ever used one? Really bugs me when people make blanket comments like that without any knowledge of the item in question. I pretty much built my kit car with a couple of these. Did the job nicely.

    probably alright for the odd bit of home DIY, but dewalt, hitatchi, makita etc are worth the extra money imo. This may do the job most of the time, but decent tools will save you alot of headache with some jobs

    I agree cheap and nasty, it's more a toy than a real drill - for anyone disagreeing buy yourself a decent drill driver like a Makita and use it for 10 mins you will never look back.

    Personally I think Dewalt has gone downhill big style, the old stuff was good and some of the very expensive stuff is good, but all the cheaper stuff is cheap chinese rubbish on a par with this from Aldi

    I bet he's never used a Dewalt either.

    If folk wanted to forever compare good aimed at the cheaper end of the market with premium brands then there's be no hot dealt and this site would be pointless. I often wonder what's going through their heads when they make such inane statements but there you go.

    have to say I did buy one of these about a year ago and it was really poor, levels of torque from it were laughable in my opinion,

    for light use it would be okay but at £20 it's about what it's worth if you know what I mean

    Please don't flame me its only my personal opinion but really 18v its that much these days if you want to spend you money wisely spend it on a much higher voltage drill

    18V is plenty strong enough for most house hold tasks, however when doing my kitchen I picked up the Aldi 24V drill to make life easy. The battery life was appalling and just wouldn't hold a charge - I could drill maybe four or five holes in to brick before it was giving up again! A colleague bought an 18V and it was equally rubbish. I tend to like Aldi stuff, but the cordless drills just aren't worth the bother. Instead invest in a Li-on drill - you'll find you batteries last and it stays good and strong for ages. B&Q have recently done a couple of branded drills for about £80 - they are much better value. Also 13mm chuck is a must.

    What is a home DIY drill?
    I use a £100 Makita 14v. Charges in 30mins and holds charge for over a month.
    I've drilled concrete slabs, laid a large sturdy deck, put up a quality shed, drilled through brick walls etc etc.
    Thats what I call home diy.
    I would like to find a £19.00 drill that's up to the home DIY I do.
    But you pay the money, you take the choice.

    I arrange repairs for our factory drills, which are all Dewalt and Makita, although I don't have many problems with them packing up when they do, my repair shop charge £25 just to look at them.

    This is not for me but I'm voting hot because it is a good deal for £20 and will suit the needs of many very nicely

    It's obvious that the likes of Makita and Hitachi will be better quality and you' pay for that quality and durability.

    I have a Dewalt 18v drill which is excellent for diy jobs.
    If this cheaper drill doesn't have hammer action, then I wouldn't waste your money.

    Why would you want a hammer action when drilling into wood or metal?

    How could you not need hammer action when drilling concrete?

    It's all down to your personal needs balanced off with the available budget.

    I bought an 18v rechargable drill/driver from Aldi in Germany over 10 years ago and whilstz the battery is now getting a bit tired and doesn't hold it's charge for so lang it is still more than adequate for lighter DIY tasks. I designed and built my 12' x 8' shed with it and the frame is 4"x2" and there were no prblems whatsoever.

    If you ain't tried it then don't knock it!

    If it did have hammer action it would be cr*p anyway as even my 18v Dewalt with hammer action is rubbish in concrete, can only manage cinder block or brick comfortably, always have to get the mains SDS out to drill concrete or mortar.
