We 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.
