I have had several brands of cordless and here is my take. If you want the best of the main players, Milwaukee. I have some 18v stuff and they are workhorses. Bosch is up there too. Dewalt is mid pack, maybe not hardly as good as Makita, but fair. I have some Porter Cable stuff and the batteries are fantastic and the tools work pretty well, but they are not built very heavy. I love the little inflator and the grinder is pretty good, but the drill is marginal and the impact driver compared to my Milwaukee is a toy. If you need something light to intermediate duty go for it when its on sale at Lowes (they go on sale cheap, why I got into them). If you are a heavy user at least go Dewalt.
