This will be for home use only. Mainly drilling holes to hang things on walls, drive in screws, etc. No heavy construction. I would like something durable. I'd like to spend under $150, but I could go higher if it were worth it. From my preliminary research on Amazon, this looks like it should be possible. Some specific questions:
1) Is an impact driver useful? What does it do that a regular drill doesn't?
2) How does having a higher voltage affect the performance? I assume it's more powerful, but uses up battery power more quickly. Is this correct?
3) What other important factors am I neglecting?
4) Are there any brands or specific models that you would recommend?
