    Great for light to medium applications., March 4, 2003

    This review is from: Black & Decker AD600 6-Volt Alkaline 1/4-Inch Hex Cordless Drill/Driver with Accessory Assortment (Tools & Home Improvement)

    The driver feels very solid and nice in your hand. It comes with 4 hex-shank bits – a medium philips, medium flathead, 3/16 and 1/16 drill bits, which should be fine for most jobs. While there is plenty of torque for drilling, there is no torque range adjustment, so you’ll have to be careful not to overtighten screws. For that purpose, it has an intuitive manual spindle lock that clicks firmly into place, allowing you to use it like a regular screwdriver.

    The bit holder shaft has a convenient quick connect sleeve. You simply pull back on the sleeve insert or remove the bit. The bits have a groove at the end to keep them in the shaft when you work, solving the common problem that I always run into previous power screwdrivers and drills, where for various reasons, the bit gets stuck in the hole or screw when I pull away.

    The handle has cartridge style battery pack. Also included with the drill/driver are 4 AA batteries, 20 screws, and 20 plastic inserts (for dryway)– everything you need to get started. It comes with a full 2-year home use warranty.

    I really like this unit. It was very inexpensive, does the job, has the fit and finish quality that one expects from Black and Decker, and has an ergonomic look and feel.

    While it would have been nice for this drill/driver to run a bit faster (it runs at only 130 rpm versus the more desirable 180/rpm) and have a torque adjustment ring for worry free screw driving, I think the price makes up for it considerably.

    Overall, the AD600 is an excellent value.

    This review is from: Black & Decker AD600 6-Volt Alkaline 1/4-Inch Hex Cordless Drill/Driver with Accessory Assortment (Tools & Home Improvement)

    With Lithium Ion models now available in all price ranges, this model is now really dated.

    Maybe still a good value, if you find it for under ten buckss at discount store beginning with “W”.

    Handy for driving screws.

    Fits in your pocket while climbing a ladder.

    Fits in a small tool-box.

    Good for low-clearance uses (6 or 6-3/4 inches from driver tip to heel).

    Wimpy, but enough torque for medium duty. Sinks drywall screws without pre-drilling.

    At 130 rpm, it’s painfully slow for drilling. It’s much slower and wimpier than 35 dollar or 95 dollar Li-Ion models. Buy this only as a screw driver – if you already own a cordless drill.

    Nice feel, ergonomic handle. Forward & reverse triggers are handier than a separate F/R switch.

    The owners manual says to use only alkaline batteries (4-AA), but I find that rechargeables (2100 mAh NiMH) work great, last a long, time, and only cost as much as 5 sets of throw-aways.

    One disappointment is the spindle lock, which you can use when hand turning a really stubborn screw. It does not disable the motor. There is no motor OFF option when stowing. It would be nice if the spindle auto-locked whenever the trigger is not pressed and if there was a motor-OFF switch.

    **Update 1-15-2010: After 5+ years of moderate use (including one 12-foot drop from a ladder onto concrete) it still works.
