What customers say about "Key Specs"
BLACK + DECKER LD120VA 20-Volt Max Lithium Drill/Driver
  • A maximum speed of 750 rpm is definitely a shortcoming in a small hand held drill. Otherwise it's a pretty good package. Just make sure it will fit your requirements before you buy it.
  • It has good power, variable speeds, and good balance. It does not have a built-in work light, level, or trigger lock... but for the price you cant beat it.
  • Awesome and powerful little drill. Light weight and easy to maneuver. Wish it was two speed but still nice drill for the money.
  • I use it for small jobs when I travel. It takes up very little space in my luggage and it has enough power to do most jobs. The maximum speed is low but that's OK.
  • This drill only has one speed, so if you are doing anything that needs some power, you'll need to upgrade. (it won't drill or screw into anything with resistance)
BLACK + DECKER LDX120C Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill/Screwdriver
  • This drill worked great for exactly a year. I think it has developed a short in the trigger (not diagnosed by an expert). When I pull the trigger the drill motor works for a second or two.
  • This is a single speed, works great just have to put it on drill setting for higher torques. I work on military aircraft and this works great for my jobs.
  • Found it to be a balanced and lite weight drillGreat when working overhead and on latters.Has great tourque to drive screws and drill through metal.
  • Doesn't appear to be a true daily workhorse product, but great for people with only an occasional need for small to medium projects.
  • I also think a pro would want a drill with a little more torque and definitely more drilling speed.

  • This drill is incredibly light weight and the price is right considering it comes with battery, charger and some basic accessories.
  • It is light weight and does the job quickly, never had a nicer battery operated drill with attachments.

What customers say about "Features"
BLACK + DECKER LD120VA 20-Volt Max Lithium Drill/Driver
  • Excellent speed control. You can turn a screw at exactly the speed you want. This is very helpful in avoiding over-torquing and having the bit jump out of the screw.
  • The accessories are a great feature. It does not come with a case.
  • This drill/driver features lithium-ion battery technology and because of Black & Decker’s exclusive smart charge technology, can hold a charge of up to 500 days between projects.
  • It has now been a year and this drill still performs like it did right out of the box. The battery keeps a charge for a long time too.
  • For now I can only give it 3 stars because without the flashlight feature it just seems incomplete.
BLACK + DECKER LDX120C Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill/Screwdriver
  • The light always works when the trigger is pulled. The battery is charged so I suspect it is a trigger issue.
  • The tool holds a charge that is unbelieveable. After a few hours of hanging drywall, this tool was ready to go the next day without a single charge.
  • This is a great drill for average use around the home or shop. Seems to hold battery life fairly well compared to other small 20V drills I have used.
  • I'm extremely pleased with this drill. It stops spinning as soon as you release the trigger, which is a feature not all low-end drills have. It also has an adjustable clutch, so it works very nicely as a screwdriver.
  • The light is an added plus as my old drill did not have that feature. Recommend.
