Pros: Great drill, easy to use, we have several of the previous generation of these in tech crew, they work great and the batteries last a long time.
Other Thoughts: If you are trying to join two pieces of lumber tightly, a non impact driver will be better for the first several screws, the percussive action of the driver can create a gap in between pieces of lumber.

Pros: The self-feeding feature seemed to work well. It cut a nice clean hole in the floor so I could run my cable. Comes with a quick change socket so I guess you could swap to a larger bit for bigger holes. It did not snag or unravel my carpet.
Cons: The bits seem very sharp, which is good but I think it is actually a burr on the edges of the bits that make them seem sharper than they really are. The amount of torque required to make a 5/8" hole in my floor made the drill stall or twist in my hands a few times but I don't know if that is because my drill is not great or because of the threaded nature of these bits causes the torque required to increase compared to a common spade bit doing all of its cutting at the face.
Other Thoughts: Overall I like the idea of these bits because they make a smaller hole and then enlarge it as the bit goes into the material. This should result in longer life of the sharpness but greatly increases the difficulty of sharpening them. As I think the original sharpness is due to a burr being on the edge of these bits and not actually being sharpened I bet they will get dull quickly.
I essentially bought this set because I needed one hole drilled and will eventually need only a few more holes as time goes on. I wouldn't recommend these for professional use because I think they will get dull quickly and be very hard to resharpen.

Pros: It does its job, cuts through all types of wood my shool uses, and can cut through deck screws. Most bits fit it.
Cons: You constantly need to tighten the bit back in. My friend who's left handed also had a problem using it.
Other Thoughts: My school shop class uses it, and i guess that the school would buy something that would last.
