Has anyone had experience of this drill?
I wouldn't risk it. Why would you? Go for a brand you know
Made buy dewalt and is the same as the DeWalt DCD985L2 XR Combi Drill 2xAH Lithium Ion Battery 18v which is 250guid so very good price

Would rather have a Dewalt/Makita for around this price

Thought that Dewalt had a 3 speed gearbox. Those batteries dont look like 3 amp hour ones either?
If your spending £100 on a drill get one that you can buy parts for easy like dewalt or Mikita. Try buying a set of brushes for this drill. You have to think of the refurbishing possibilities if you want a drill to last and the resale value.
This reminds me of the Argos "Pink" range
Try the Hitachi Li-on unit from Screwfix @ £99 atm. 2 batteries and suprising good + dependable (this is from someone that uses a £400 Milwaukee at work every day). We have one as a general "dog' body" unit and its great.

Please, Most battery drills have sealed motors with no accessible brushes, And definitely not on a 100 quid drill.
This drill would be no better or worse quality than a Dewalt or makita of the same price, From experience the battery's will go well before the brushes, At which point you get a whole new kit, As a couple of battery's would cost you as much .
Batts are 18650 cells as used in laptops. If you can solder you can replace them

Most cheap battery drills do have sealed motors. The DCD785 currently available from screw fix for £129.99 would have accessible brushes. If you have to get a whole new kit after the batteries have gone you are throwing money away as you can also recondition the batteries. I worked for a tool hire company for yrs refurbishing and reconditioning tools and if they threw away every drill that came back knackered they would have gone out of buisness very quick.
I bought a new Makita 240V HR2470 SDS hammer drill for £105 including delivery from Ebay with guarantee. It has 3 functions: - Drill, hammer and drill+hammer. Its worth an investment. Wickes and toolstation selling those around £140 and £135.
