I think you will find HD Ready is 720p actually. If you run an old graphics card on it like a 7850 it will work ~ a 270x will become quite impressive; (should we buy new cards or old tellies? ? )
I meant your name LOL
While u r one
This isn't native 720p.
You sound like a Div!
Spannerzone summed it up perfectly. This would definitely be overkill for DIY and I'm not sure if this is a good deal but it's a terrific tool and easily 100% better than the Dewalt. The Dewalt however would be more than capable for most DIY tasks and light trade.
Check powertoolmate bet he beats that price
Well high torque means it's easier to drill drills into very tough brickwork, concrete or masonry and would mean it can more easily drive screws/bolts like a very powerful screwdriver. But many people never need such power, I suspect most people don't need that for DIY and those that do might have a cheap impact driver any way. I personally would always get a higher torque drill as my house has very solid and hard bricks but i got the Makita 458 drill that's quite powerful and about £150 - £180 with battery and charger.
It's a great drill (I have one) but I don't think it's a great price. Without checking I'm fairly sure you can get it cheaper buying everything separately.
Cheers I'll give some decent ones a try.
I find quality screws make a massive difference too
June18 code does not work for 10% discount it is 97 now and not 87 anymore.
This drill with two batteries can be had for £105. Tried to post as a deal but mods didn't like the store. Seems to have arranged a delivery with DPD though. Google the model DCD795S2 and you'll find it.
I use the normal drill bit that came with my bosch psb 1800 screwdriver.
Buy the bare blue version on this link and then pick up some batteries and charger off ebay/gumtree. That is a total bargain. Either way, this kind of compact drill is a fantastic addition to any tool kit.
I’ve been monitoring the 12 GSB / GDR for a while. Bare GSB is currently £29 here - http://www.powertool-supplies.co.uk/bosch-gsb-10.8-2-li-combi-drill-body-only.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIjNGvzYLa2wIVDbDtCh0PwQmvEAQYASABEgILFvD_BwE#/product/50749 Even at at that price, adding on two batteries and the impact driver takes you to £108 and that’s without the l-boxx or charger. Unfortunately it seems the ebay 20% off would have been the best opportunity to get the kit for around £110 - it’s much cheaper than pricing up separately. Borrowed one and couldn’t believe the power/size of the thing. I’m not sure why the blue GSB is rated for bigger masonry bits as they are extremely similar on the stats but if I had the money I’d be all over it. To be honest, I’m fairly sure i’ll be able to shift this green one on for £30 used, so I’ll keep my eyes peeled for an offer on the blue kit.
Seems a very good price for a very handy combi drill/driver +2.5ah, I use the pro blue version all the time at work along with the excellent 12v impact driver. I don't know what difference there is in internally regarding industrially rated components etc, suspect not much but remember that the green and the blue batteries are NOT interchangeable and there is quite a large system for the pro tools if you want to expand your kit.
One thing I can say about the Lidl drills etc, their power tools batteries are interchangeable. Always searching for them perfect drill bits though!!
Far better off with the Bosch deal that was posted recently. These drills aren't great at all. Nor are they value for money. Plus, these batteries don't have a large variety of compatibility.
My Makita drill is ten years old and is used occasionally does the job very happy the drill bits though may as well be made of chocolate useless
If you just want a power drill for DIY use, and not planning on adding to your cordless collection, then yes, they are ok. As has been mentioned though, the LXT range starts at only a little more, and adding other LXT tools is cheap enough once you have a battery and charger.
So what is the general opinion? Good drill for a decent price or overpriced old stock that is pretty much a pile of outdated tosh??!
Depends really on what you paid and battery power, how many batteries ? The model you have mentioned is brushless’ that’s an advantage over the Bosch, but is a drill / driver ( no hammer drill function ) so it’s not a combi drill where as the Bosch is. torques are similar decent from both brands so other then yours not being a combi drill I’d say you’ve bought a decent drill.
I purchased a few days ago a DEWALT DCD777N is this combi drill any better?
No this has brushes.
Hi, is this brushless?
You say that now, but if you ever get the chance to try one they're awesome! And will remove a stubborn bolt with ease, I assembled a garden chair with mine instead of using a ratchet. Saved me loads of time.
Price gone up to £229 now
I don’t know what TV interfaces you’ve been using but for me they’ve been great. And if they are not good enough for you the only thing they can get is better and with time they will. If you’re spending £200 on a tv then £50-£100 on a GOOD smart compatible device then isn’t the extra money worth getting the smart integrated into the tv instead and getting a good quality one at that . Other that than that it is a good tv but this is just my opinion don’t want to start a war over it (lol) (lol)
Not only that, but every smart tv interface I've ever used has been so incredibly cumbersome. If you have any other means to access apps on your TV (Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, NowTv, Fire TV, Android box, Sky/Virgin box, YouView or a myriad of others) I guarantee it's quicker and more user friendly than using the integrated ones on your smart TV. I'd happily lose the smart features to save a few quid.
The drill you linked to (DHP482Z) I've owned for about 2 years now and have been really happy with it.
it depends on how hard you throw it against the wall
Which of the multiple paragraphs quoted are you referring to?! Interested to understand what specifically of the above passage is “rubbish” in your view.
Thanks for the heads. Amazing price considering the spec
Any one know if other makers batteries fit this?
Just ordered, good price for a simple DIY combi, my 10 year old Hitachi's batteries have just died and it's £80 to replace them both so seems daft not to buy this. :)
A good find, i bought a similar drill 5 years ago and still going strong. i am tempted to replace it with this. Thanks for posting.
You have to compare like for like, but the general principle is this. The higher the voltage the less current the motor will need to draw, the lower the current draw the more efficient the motor will be. With this is mind, the more force you want to provide to your mower blade, the more power you need to pull from the battery therefore making the difference in efficiency more important. So maybe an 18V strimmer is not such a problem, as you are spinning a plastic cord, but with a mower its a double headed metal blade that you are rotating. In addition, if someone is marketing a 36V mower with a 2Ah battery and an 18V mower with a 2Ah battery, you are getting half the battery power with the 18V model. So even if the 36V and 18V models were identical in efficiency, then if a fully charged 36V could run for 30mins the 18V would only run for 15mins.
Thanks ! Got one!!
If this is the same one that was included in the twin drill and impact driver deal posted on here a couple of months ago, then it's more than good enough for an amateur. Definitely a big step up on the Titan version, which I returned as the torque control pretty much gave up.
May I ask why? My mower is 40v btw
If that is the only difference, better off with Aldi and use the £30 on another battery
Just came back in at £89 and I managed to bag one. However up to 5 weeks delivery time
Compared to Nilfisk or Karcher models with similar specs which are between 440-520l/hr (eg the Karcher C120 posted earlier)
Compared to what?
I don't know much about pressure washers, is it really that low?
Yes I've ordered many products out of stock, and they always delivered eventually
I'd agree. I use a Fuel 12v brushless with a 4 Ah battery for work. Hammer drill, normal screw driving etc and charge lasts for ages. Bloody good hammer drill for a 12v, paired with a decent Bosch masonry bit it chews through bricks.
But the Aldi one is! ;)
Not brushless. I would strongly suggest commercial users go for brushless.
Just as I was wondering where Aldi got the inspiration for their uggliest drill yet!: https://www.aldi.co.uk/workzone-brushless-drill-driver/p/082864209100600
Impact driver ;)
I've found out I can also get this dewalt drill for £80 as a family member has said she can get me 20% employee discount. I'm still torn though as the stanley appears to be the more powerful drill.
I've got the Stanley and dewalt 18v drills, the Stanley drill is a very good drill for the price (£79 I paid with 2 batteries year or so ago) Only reason I'd pick the dewalt over this is that you get a more varied selection of bare units to take advantage of the second battery
My wife just bought be a book all about power tools (as I've got a lot of jobs to do in our new house) and it explains all about this. I think the the short answer is "it depends"!
Yes, plastic case with metal locks
Does this come in a case please?
Yes that's the one. DPD delivery from BeValued
Hi, I purchased this great drill. Just a question was the free battery delivered by DPD from a company called BeValued. It’s just a have a delivery pending and his is the only item I can think it is.
And the 3rd battery arrived today - result. £90 3 batteries / 3 years warranty great drill used it for the first time today no complaints
Wish I had waited now. Bought the Stanley FatMax from Argos. Only used it to put a hanging basket up so far.
Does anyone know if these are any good, or would I be better paying a bit more for something like a Ryobi? I had a Challenge drill from Argos that cost about the same and it wasn't very good so I don't know whether to spend a bit more this time?
The extra battery does help negate the long charge times, plus how many jobs would you do that would take more than 2 batteries? You'd hope it would help with better overall battery life, not being fast-charged at higher current, but who can tell?
We love an ALDI deal pennyfarthing88 :D
I very much doubt that.
B&Q have this with 2Ah batteries rather than 1.5Ah for £87 at the moment - noticed it in store earlier today, but same price online.
Shame it's not on a deal anymore, any one know of any alternatives? I've got a hell of a lot of further board planks to screw into batons (about 20+ feet) doing it by hand will suck, and I assume the little electric screw driver ones are not man enough?
price back up to £78.49 (mad) was going to order this morning!
Doesn't have to be a Bosch set. If you're starting from scratch, a small 50 pcs set is an ideal starting point, but you could just buy a £5 set of drill bits on eBay. Have a think first about how much you are likely to use it and for what you want to do with it.
Paid exactly the same a couple of days ago on a bank holiday deal at Robert Dyas, but it expires today...this may be a price match so better hurry! Excellent bit of kit, well pleased
Yep I just randomly put it loads of different areas without any luck, so will pull the post thought it might of helped someone.
Gutted. Been waiting for a decent deal on a drill aswell. This would have been ideal
It'll be automated, they'll have had at least one somewhere. Their site is just useless for knowing anything more than that.
No stock otherwise a great deal
Why do Screwfix staff even bother changing the website if they know they have zero stock anywhere in the country?
No stock anywhere that I could find, needs to be expired IMO. (flirt)
https://www.greatwatches.co.uk/products/casio-aqf-102wd-1bv-thermometer-world-time-50-lap-memory-watch-steel-band one there cheap
FYI, you should always be able to insert finger between strap and wrist otherwise you will pop pins or break housing or split strap if fabric or leather.
It's only good up to -10C! That's not very cold!
I’d buy a real watch and pay a substantial amount more. A watch isn’t just for Christmas it’s for life :D
You can adjust the temperature sensor manually so it's then accurate....I'm getting one of these tomorrow for my every day watch....a g shock with sensors is double the price.
