Okay, this is the 3rd cordless power drill I have owned and the reason is simply that the old ones batteries has given up and I thought it would be cheaper to get a brand new drill.
Got my performance power cordless for 30euros and didnt expect much of it.
The good is the forward and reverse rotation as the switch for setting to higher or lower speeds. This kit came with two 18V batteries which are a must since they both run down in about 10minutes.
Bottom line after a week of use:

The Performance Power Cordless Drill 18v is a realy good tool, I have used 3 diferent ones for years. But it is badly let down by no spares available.
Switch assembly failed after a lot of use and would have been an easy repair if only a spare was available!!! (read more)

The Performance Power Cordless Drill 18v is a performance drill, great to hold in hand very comfortable, easy to charge coming with two batteries and case to carry around.
Chuck quick and easy to change drills, screwdriver bits, rubberised casing to drill not so easy to slip from hands.
18V power to spare, variable torque, reverse action and hammer action.
Gears broke after 5 years, would like to buy another or have repaired or spare parts available. (read more)

Have now had my Performance Power 18v drill/driver for 4 years and it has done a lot of work. I originally bought it because the amount of lateral movement in the chuck was virtually zero - very important for accurate drilling. It is still going strong at the moment on the original battery pack and if it gives up the ghost I will almost certainly buy another. A bit more expensive than some of the other DIY kit available but well worth it and vastly better than Black & Decker. (read more)

I have 2 of these for 5 years and they' still better than the best. My friend has been through 3 DeWalt battery packs in this time (but at least he knows he can buy replacements online, cheaply) Have to try the helpline number printed on the side of the drill to see if B&Q can help. Having used it before I somehow doubt it, so if anyone has had any success, perhaps they can post info here? (read more)

Had this drill for about 7 years, it's absolutely brill. Used it to build own conservatory with it, only problem had 1 battery, but lasts very well. Old age has set in, looking to buy another so will use other spare battery. Definitely buy one again, but cannot for the life of me find one anywhere... (read more)
