This is my brush with Sunk Cost fallacy as it pertains to power tools. I have a Porter-Cable impact driver and drill set, along with a Porter Cable reciprocating saw, 20v cordless. Bought it in 2016 or thereabouts, and got the saw for my birthday last year. The impact stopped working late last year, I bought the brushless version that was on sale. It came with two batteries, so now I have four PC batteries. Last week the magic smoke got out of the drill. I use these tools a lot. I use the impact driver to do setups on my machine at work, and to do appliance repairs on my own. The drill gets used a lot at work too. When it started getting hot in the handle, and stopped working, I considered buying another PC drill since I had batteries already... But I didn't want to buy another one a year from now. I wanted to buy one and have it still working a year or two from now. I looked at alternatives, narrowed it down to Makita or DeWalt. Makita was cheaper, but upon seeing the tools in person, it was obvious why they were cheaper - gone are the blue tools I'm used to, replaced with these effete little solid black tools which are lighter, but they just felt flimsy. So I gritted my teeth, kicked the wall in rage, and spent the money on the DeFault - er - DeWalt impact and drill kit, that's DCK283D2, which includes DCF887 (1/4" impact) and DCD791 (1/2" drill) along with two 2.0 AH batteries, a charger, and a soft tool bag. These things are leaps and bounds above the Porter Cable stuff. When using the PC impact or drill you could feel the injection-molded halves squirming around under your hand. On the other hand, these ugly yellow things feel like you could hammer a nail with them. The PC drill did have a nice metal chuck, with a sprag clutch that kept it from turning so it could be tightened, but it's nowhere near as nice as the chuck (also metal) on the Dewalt, which spins freely and smoothly when tightening or loosening it. It also stops and won't turn so you can tighten it on a bit. Other than the chuck, I can't say much one way or the other about the drill. It drills holes and does a quick job of it. You can spin it very slowly to get a screw started if you want. The impact is considerably more powerful than my brushless PC impact. Supposed to output 1825 inch pounds. It will back the lug nuts off my truck and it's not supposed to do that. It will also snap off a 3/8" adapter if you're stupid enough to try unscrewing something too big for the tool. It also has a couple of lower settings, one is 1500 inch pounds, and there is a 250 inch pound setting that will screw a screw in, until it bottoms out, then it will stop. It won't let you go too far, just completely turns the motor off. One of the reasons I went with the ugly yellow tools is the local Dewalt repair shop. They're awesome. I bought a Dewalt 40v weedeater, which was great. The battery stopped holding a charge, I went to see if it could be fixed. They tested the battery, said it was bad, and gave me a new one for free. It was apparently still under warranty. Sure enough, my new tools have a three year warranty.
