I think for that combo (drill/driver), Makita and DeWalt dominate. Both made in Japan these days. Whether they say 18v or 20v, they're both 18v w a 20v max. I use the Makita setup. Get the brushless option if you can. Smoother, quieter, etc. I use mine a lot with the compact batteries and the weight makes them great to use for my application-drywalling, framing. But I'm going to grab the bigger battery for a third as it will last way longer when framing with 2.5" or 3" screws. I even lost my temper one day and smashed my impact against the wall half a dozen times and it still works flawlessly. I would buy either of the two brands. I've used them both and they are so similar now. (But I'm not keen on yellow..)
