My old cordless drill/screwdriver has packed up, or rather the charger has, and I'm looking for a new one. The old one was from ASDA about 4-5 years ago and has shown good service for the battering it's taken in that time so for £50 I can't complain.
Only need it for DIY, nothing to big or heavy like constructing a new shed or dormer etc.
Found this on Amazon and would like some opinions. Personally I think it would suit me fine as I have corded hammer drills if I need to do heavy stuff or drill walls/concrete etc.

What do you guys think?

I've been looking at the same drill as my previous bosch is on it's last legs after 8+ years of hard DIY work.

Interested on feedback too.
 
I have Lidl’s Parkside one’s, they take a good hammering and are very decent imho.
 
Nearest Lidl to me is about 50-60 miles away but thanks for the reply.

Probably go with the Bosch then. Dewalt combi drills canbe had for £99.99 as well. I also have a worx which aren’t bad.

I've had that Bosch model for about 4 years now, and it's not missed a beat.

Struggles on our hard brick, but goes through everything else with no concerns, and the batteries, although small, are more than adequate for DIY
 
I tend to use a corded hammer drill for brick/concrete unless I know it's soft brick/thermalite stuff.
Cheers Mikey.

So do I now! Got fed up of a 5mm hole taking 15min of sweat, and brought myself a DeWalt corded during lockdown
