That is the drill I grab 83% of the time -- it's great.

I almost bought one of those a few days ago. They look nice, and the size was just right too...but...I have a Panasonic impactor 14.4v with brushless motor. I was able to buy just the body of the Panasonic driver, drill, and use the batteries from the impactor. It all worked out cheaper than the Bosch, so I went with that.
It's made in Japan, and the Impactor hasn't missed a beat.
I still like the size of the Bosch. I use the driver when I deliver dining tables. Sometimes it's easier ( you wouldn't believe how small Japanese entrances are) to take the top off for delivery. That means putting all the buttons back on in the house. I've been doing it by hand until now.

Cheers!

If I were in the market for a 10.8v impact driver, this is what I would be looking at....

Makita TD090DW 10.8V Li-Ion Cordless Impact Driver

Pretty close to the same tool except it comes with a 3 year warranty. If you use it a lot, then that would be a good thing. Also .2lb. lighter. Can't really beat the price. 3/8" shorter if you need to get in a tight place.
