We were quite intrigued since, when comparing the specs to other items in its category with a similar score, this 20v cordlesss drill doesn't seem to excel or lag behind in any way. What it lacked in outstanding specs, it made up for with its special feature: a rotating dual-chuck that allows users to switch between two drill bits with just a quick twist.

Users seem to agree with our speculations about the Worx Switchdriver. Almost everyone praised the drill's dual-chuck feature, claiming that it was a great time-saver. Users also liked the built-in of the LED light, which is located just above the chuck. Based on reviews on other drills, we noticed that people disliked having the LED light located below the chuck because it casts a shadow over the work area. This is not a problem with the Worx Switchdriver.

Users who were less than thrilled with this 20v drill cited its underwhelming power as a major drawback, with one even going so far as to consider it as a toy. Other critics also didn't like the fact that the drill did not have a belt hook which would have allowed users to carry it around more easily. One major criticism was directed towards its charger, with the user claiming that the charger does not shut off automatically and it killed the batteries that came with the drill.

After checking 1943 reviews from multiple sources, our system gave the Worx Switchdriver an adjusted score of 4.5 stars. Underwhelming specs might have caused the Worx Switchdriver to rank lower in our system, but its innovative features was enough to secure its spot in the top 10 2ov cordless drills.

The DCD796D2 is powered by a brushless motor, which DeWalt claims to increase the drill's lifetime by up to 57% compared to brushed motor drills. The increased run time, coupled with the presence of a second 20v Lithium Ion battery included in the bundle, is designed to allow users to make good use of its higher than average RPM (compared to other drills in our database) for extended periods of time, but what exactly do users have to say about the performance of this 2-speed drill? We had our shopping algorithm go through 361 reviews from multipler sources. Once finished and analyzed, our system gave it an adjusted score of 4.5 stars.

A closer look at the user reviews shows that most users did like the DCD796D2's long battery life (although DeWALT did not specify the actual expected battery life in its product description). One user recommends charging one battery while the other battery is being used to minimize the drill's down time -- a piece of advise we'd attach to any drill, though. Another user also liked how the drill's two speed settings are different enough that switching between them actually makes a difference, making it suitable for a variety of drilling tasks.

Although the DCD796D2 received plenty of praise, it also landed its share of negative feedback. One of the users that gave it a low score of only one star stated that their drill vibrates too much when using larger bits and that it breaks smaller ones into pieces. Another one was disappointed with their drill's hammer feature, which stopped working after only three days worth of work (although we suspect that this is a chance case, given the other positive ratings).

Even though the DCD796D2 did not secure the top spot in its category, users find its capabilities good enough that our system placed it among the top 10 20v cordless drills in our database.

Our system analyzed 1030 from two sources for the BDCDMT120C and gave it an adjusted score of 4.5 stars

The BDCDMT120C's main selling point is Black & Decker's Matrix Quick-connect System. With this feature, users can convert the drill into a different type of tool like a jigsaw, an impact driver, or a reciprocating tool provided the user has the necessary head attachments. This 20v cordless drill is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery, with users having an option to pay more for an extra battery bundled with the unit.

We wanted to see what users had to say about the BDCDMT120C, so we took a closer look at some of the more notable reviews. One review that gave the drill a perfect rating said that the Matrix system was good and "well-executed", allowing them to carry their essential tools with only one bag. Another user particularly liked that they can use both round and hex bits with very little issues. Almost all those that gave the drill a positive review praised it for its decent power and sturdy build.

Despite receiving mostly solid feedback, a few users do have some complaints about the BDCDMT120C. Most of the people who gave the drill a score of 3 stars or lower pointed out that it doesn't have enough power to perform more heavy-duty tasks even with the torque set to the highest setting, which seems to confirm its personality as versatile, but not necessarily super powerful. Other complaints include the drill having an awkward grip (which we find interesting because this particular criticism came from someone who gave the drill a perfect score in their review), a low RPM of only 800 and, for a few users, a slightly wobbly chuck.

The BDCDMT120C's innovative features might not have been enough to put it on the number one spot, but it still manages to find its place in the top 10 items in its category.

Our ranking system checked reviews for the DCD791D2 and calculated an average of (rating temporarily unavailable) stars. A closer look at the reviews gave us some insight on why people loved the DCD791D2. Many users praised this 20v cordless drill's compact but powerful build, while others liked it for the extra battery -- It comes with two batteries. One of the most popular reviews for the DCD791D2 even went so far as claiming that the drill was a "beast". Most users agree that the DCD791D2 packs quite a punch for its size, which probably explains why the reviews are so high.

The chuck received polarizing feedback (even among users that gave the drill 5 stars). Some users claim that it is good, while others cite it as the main reason why they gave the drill a score of 3 or lower. The most common complaint about the chuck was that it was wobbly and the drive bits tend to loosen out -- Heck! That leaves us surprised it got such good reviews, making us wonder if those who experienced wobbles got a bad unit, or were too picky?

Another feature that received mixed feedback was the cordless drill's built-in LED light located just above the trigger. One user liked the LED function but wished there was a way to turn it off, while another claimed that it was too bright and annoying to use indoors.

Specs of the DCD791D2 include a high no-load RPM of 2000, 15 settings on its metal clutch, a brushless motor, a belt hook, a chuck size of half an inch, and a UWO (Unit Watts Out -- DeWalt's own proprietary metrics) rating of 460.

Despite the criticisms, only 5% of user reviews (at the time we wrote this) for the DCD791D2 gave a score of 3 or lower, which is a very good ratio, and which tells us that the vast majority of the users liked it. We weren't surprised that it convinced some users.
