Hitachi DS14DVF3 14.4v Cordless DrillWe give the Hitachi DS14DVF3 14.4v cordless drill a 7.4 overall rating. The price is the most attractive thing about the DS14DVF3, which is why this model ranks as one of our best buys for under $100. Users rate this as a 3.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon. It features a NiCd battery system and comes with a flashlight as part of the kit.

The performance of this unit is below average. With 300 in-lbs of torque and 1200 RPM’s, it will do for odd jobs around the house, but it won’t be able to handle heavy duty drilling or driving tasks.

While this drill is not intended for professional use, we do recommend the DS14DVF3 for homeowners who need a cheap cordless drill.

Makita 6281DWPE 14.4v Cordless DrillThe Makita 6281DWPE 14.4v cordless drill gets a 7.0 overall rating. This Makita is a compact 14.4 volt version with NiCd batteries. Users generally rate this drill very well and there are few negative reviews. The price is also better than most other 14.4v drills at under $140.  Another positive is that it is over a pound lighter than average for its class.

As for negatives, well the obvious one is the lack of power. It has just 260 in-lbs of torque with is well below average and is not really suitable for heavy duty drilling / driving tasks. Buyers should also note the 3/8″ chuck size compared to most that are 1/2″.

About the only drawback of this unit is the price. At just under $200, it is more expensive that comparable 18v cordless drills.

Panasonic EY6432GQKW 14.4v Cordless DrillWe give the Panasonic EY6432GQKW 15.6v cordless drill an 8.2 overall rating. If we were rating just the drill and not the batteries, then this drill would score higher. Users on Amazon love this drill with 4.5 stars out of 5. Unfortunately, however, the battery technology in this drill is the very old NiMH style. The charge rating is the best in class of 3.5 Ah, but these batteries lose performance while in use and will not last as long as Li-Ion through several charging cycles. Because this drill is older, it is also getting harder to find and it is expensive.

Although user ratings are very high, we cannot recommend this model due to the old battery technology.

DeWalt DCD920KX 14.4v Cordless DrillWe score the DeWalt DCD920KX 14.4v cordless drill at an 8.3 overall rating. This model is powered by the XRP NiCd batteries rated at 2.4 amp hours. It has above class average torque and speed for superior performance in all drilling and fastening applications.

The biggest drawback to the DCD920KX is its weight. Weighing in at 6 pounds makes it a pain to use this drill for long periods of time. The price of close to $180 also is more than many 18v models.

If you are looking for a DeWalt 14.4v cordless drill, we would recommend the DC730KA instead, unless you need just a little bit more power.
