Is this not its normal price ?
Great set, I bought it recently from Homebase for £119 (now £159.99)
It supplements my 18v Makita set, i use it for home rather than work.
Only downside is the charge time is 60 minutes. A faster charger can be purchased but not worth the added expense.

The usual fan boys at work.
Just get 18v and have done with it!! Who even bothers with this crap??!!
Good price, excellent kit. I've had this set for a few weeks and can highly recommend for the keen diy'er. Paid about £137, which was the best price at the time.

People who don't use it for a living?
Heat added but already got s set
I would at least advice 18v as this won't be strong even for home use

I have a dewalt 10.8v and its a cracking little set... really useful.

Also have a makita 18v... bigger and bulkier... have to say i really like using the 10.8v and it tackles anything i do around the house. A useful piece of kit
18v is advised and cheaper
I use a Bosch 10.8v for work and it's a great bit of kit. Anything stronger needed I crack out the sds or core drill. Would happily buy this if I didn't have the Bosch.
At this price get the 10.8v set, will cover most uses. They are lighter and can get into tighter spaces. The 18v is still in the box.

Me! The 14v was a bit weak for DIY but the 18v is the one to go for.
This is a great set and before you knock the 10.8v tools - give them a try as you will be pleasantly surprised by the power
Although I have a decent 18v, To be honest for drilling I always use my SDS BOsch Pro as it always creates flawless holes (mainly because I guess the bits are so high quality) and I have a 18v Ryobi impact (when it was 50 quid or so with the B&Q code stacking glitch) which is absolutely amazing.

i rarely use my cordless drill if I am honest, this is for home use.
Yeah but why would you buy something that's just ok, and not spend a little extra and get something that's good. Black and decker is for people who don't use them for a living

What would you suggest?
My son is moving out today into a new build, but he's a plasterer by trade and just said that he'd want to use it for putting up boards on the job, as well as for home use. I was going to buy this as a house warming gift. With all the best intentions in the world, I think I should stick to driving a Taxi for a living, and let him get on with it. Even nice gestures can be a mistake if you don't know your stuff.

It would be more than suitable for him.
Always need to factor in the cost of extra batteries to determine if this is a hot deal. With only 2 you could be stuck swapping batteries between units when one goes flat, useful to have a 3rd so one is always charged and ready to go.
What does the second drill do in this set that's different to the first? (I haven't used a cordless before)

It's an impact driver. Used for screwing and unscrewing.
You can get a proper drill for plaster boarding. It is a drill that come with screw cartridges full of screws so no need for fiddling about trying to keep the screw on the bit and holding the board at the same time!!
I use one of these to supplement my 18v kit at work.
They mainly get used for lighter overhead things such as fitting hygienic ceiling boards with wafer screws.

Wouldn't recommend them as a stand alone piece of kit though.
