Very powerful an a fast service you want a drill this is the kiddy for you.
First impression the drill seems very well constructed as you would expect from dewalt. The only criticism i have is the 5amp battery pack does not feel securely fixed to the base of the drill when installed. In fact when you shake the drill in your hand, you can feel the battery assembly moving around, not what you would expect from dewalt. However this may be unique to my unit and therefore an unfair criticism.
Ggreat piece of kit from a brilliant seller.
I have owned a dewalt xr drill before, this new drill has replaced it, but what a different machine, it is smooth and much quieter than the old one. The battery lasts for ages before charging, nearly a days moderate work before a battery change and recharge.

The de walt dcd995p2-gb xr is clearly a quality tool feeling very solid and quite compact and well-constructed. The two lithium ion batteries are a massive advantage over older style battery technology giving no battery memory problems and they don’t self-discharge while stored. The charge level indicators on each battery are extremely useful when checking the status before starting work. Trigger control is very sensitive and responsive in all modes and the torque control is the most advances i have used. The drill is very well balanced when in use and stands up well when you stand it on its handle/battery unlike other drills i have owned. I have to say though that the drill is around 2. 2kg (excluding the case, charger and spare batter) which i can see as being an advantage in being stable when use but might be a bit too heavy for some people to use for extended periods. As a nice touch the led light in the handle is very useful; bright and remains on for 20 seconds after releasing the trigger, illuminates the work while drilling.
One of the best, but then everyone knows dewalt are quality goods, the price was very competitive.
I purchased this drill to replace my 10 year old dewalt 988 combi drill. The 988 has never let me down and i fancied an upgrade. My son now has the 988, is using it on his house extension and it has performed flawlessly. This new dcd 995 is an absolute beast of a drill,plenty of torque fast charging(although you don`t need that often as the batteries last absolutely ages) powerful hammer action,well made,well balanced and will go through any material with ease. It has a strong plastic case which although is tight fitting, you can still get a few bits inside for convenience. The led light is a great feature and it illuminates the job well. If you need one of the most powerful rechargeable 18 volt/5 ah drills then this is the tool for you. Others may be a bit cheaper but you pay for dewalt quality and reliability.
This is a brilliant tool, only complaint is that it feels quite heavy after long use but it will do everything you want it to.
