Gets 5* reviews, got last one from Peterborough however one in stock Stamford Lincs store.
I bought this from Argos last time. Don't waste your money on it. It's rubbish. Worth £12 at the most. Spend a little extra on a Bosch, Makita, DeWalt or Milwaukee.

​little extra? Like atleast 3x the price. Although I do agree that these are terrible.
Saying "these are terrible" is not very helpful for people. Can you give some constructive feedback? Eg - reasons, examples.... it may be that for the casual user, the issues you experienced are acceptable at the price.
Cheers

I've got one and it's fine for simple diy jobs. ebaysniper, where have you seen a hammer drill for £12?
its no makita dhp481
If ur an occasianal DIYer,this will do perfectly.. Im happy with mine. Got it for £29.99 from argos when it was on sale.. Cant complain much u get what u pay for..if this is intended for everyday heavy use,dont be surprised if it packs up.. But it comes with 2 yr warranty which is a peace of mind for ya...
£50 on the Lidl drill tomorrow.. 14th July ... Might be a better buy?

​And is also double the price, as said this will probably be fine for occasional round the house
Not a good drill with a 5 hour re-charge time,the similar priced drills from Aldi or Lidl have a 1 hour recharge time and 3yr warranty.
Shocking, talk about trying to fool the customer.
Its a complete cheap knock off of a relatively cheap drill anyway from Ryobi
Stole the general build look and colour from the Ryobi one range which is only about £70 for a 18v lithium drill.
Ryobi are okay, not great but they are worth about 10 of these pieces of junk.

Single gear ie slow, minimal torque, single battery AND slow charger. As said, OK for occasional light DIY at best.

For a cheap drill, their next model up for £33 looks much better value:

homebase.co.uk/en/…550

Two gears, nearly double the torque, two slightly bigger batteries, fast charger. Should be quite capable of some moderate DIY.

It has a 1.3ah battery absolute waste of money
Single speed makes the driver function pretty useless. Leaving you with a pretty low powered drill. Great if you just want to put a few holes in some wood.. No excuse for not having variable speed on any drill driver.
any excessive chuck wobble?
Just an fyi the maplin 18v drills are back on offer at 30squid also for anyone who cant find stock on this.
thanks to all for the comments...
