Makita drills came as a recommendation from a friend, and I'm glad I took it. I bought a Makita MXT 8444D 18v Cordless when I started doing work to my house a couple of years ago and it is one of the best tools I have ever used.
Three speeds, hammer/drill/screw selector and 16 (yes, 16!) torque settings, which work really well when used for different jobs.
The battery life is good (3.0Ah), but a second is always recommended if doing a lot of work. The charger is quick though, so you'll almost certainly have a fresh battery ready before the current one runs out.
The most impressive piece of work it has done in my opinion was whilst completing my bathroom. I put a 40mm core drill through a 'double skin' exterior brick wall using this thing......incredible! I thought I'd have to borrow a mains drill, but no.
Bad points? Can't think of any. Highly recommended.
