Strange old heat history this item:
[+255] Hot at this price: hotukdeals.com/dea…993
[+249] Similarly hot at £19.12: hotukdeals.com/dea…266
[-64] Cold at this price:hotukdeals.com/dea…776

I got it for £19.12 and was/am very happy with it (super useful for bits where you don't want to get the big drill out - and can do quite a LOT!). Others may disagree. Voted hot as I still think is good value at this price. Bosch IXO probably main competitor and may be more versatile but doesn't come with all the bits/accessories at this price..

Just to mention (not clear from Robert Dyas ad) - it can flip into a 'straight' configuration (as opposed to 'gun' pictured) and has battery indicator lights on the top. Battery does last a long time.
£10 more you can just get a propper cordless drill that can do this and more

3.6V is not powerful, This is pushing it a bit too far.

It is marketing, trying to sell it to people with little knowledge and haven't researched. I just copied the description from robert dyas page

This deal is not for everyone, this is just a cheaper Bosch ixo. This is not a drill, it is a screwdriver. It has a completely different set of uses. I used an ixo for screwing bolts in during work experience, it cut down the time, effort and fiddling that would have been present with hand tools or a big combi. Some small task are just too cumbersome with a big combi, and it is just sometimes easier to do small tasks like drive machine screws in with a light weight screw driver. Also I am unaware of any "proper" combi drills for 32 quid.
This looks identical to the 'FERREX' screwdriver Aldi have been selling for about £14.99. As discussed above it's fairly lightweight compared to the Bosch IXO but is quite handy for smaller jobs with its flip rotation and the decent case and set of bits.

Agreed, did not know this existed.
Wouldn't touch Draper anything, Back in the day they made Quality gear, Just like back in the day Blaupunkt made quality car HiFi.

OK, you do you; it is your opinion and money at the end of the day. I haven't met anyone who has a draper tool say much bad about, they mostly say their stuff is good value for money; I have heard their VDE screwdrivers are brilliant.

Yer, All the stuff they put there name on is top quality, If there happy enough to have there name cheapened by going on tat like this, Then my opinion is sound, Pretty much all there power tools are generic Chinese stuff.

I never said draper tools are top quality ...
I don't buy based on brand apart from if it is a brand like makita or Milwaukee where they lock you in with batteries that can only be used with their tools. And even then if it is a good tool that i will use and the tool is worth it, i will get it and the required kit.

So frankly don't care for them "cheapening" their brand, so long as the tools I have bought works and are worth the price that is all that matters to me.

I personally try not to have brand biases as I think the only party that loses out is the one with the brand bias.
I personally wouldn't buy the drill you mention because it is not worth it for me. I never said draper power tools were good, I mentioned their hand tools. (sidenote: i don't know why people keep referencing drills)
However, you saying they are cheapening their brand because of low end tool could be applied to Bosch and Makita etc. with their low end offerings but I don't write off their other tools purely for some bad products.
Anyway, as I said, you do you.
I don't think this screwdriver is of the best quality but I think it is decent value for money, that is why I posted it, if you don't agree vote cold and move on.

No emotional at all.
Also, don't see how I can be attached to deal that in my last comment I said it is not of the best quality and I have admitted that an Aldi screwdriver someone else linked (that i was originally unaware of) is the same thing for less money.
At the end of the day, you are the one who has a hate on for a company as if they were an ex ' are not like they used to be' and also the one who felt the need to get defensive and sarcastically reply back to my reply to you, that was not designed to criticise or hurt you in anyway (also I don't know how it could of been misconstrued the way you have but here we are. No one is forcing you to reply but you keep coming back, I comment because I try and reply to all commenter on my thread/deal.
I am sorry if I offended you in anyway, I genuinely didn't mean to.
