The respected German brand Metabo http://www.toolstop.co.uk/metabo-m207 seems to be involved with Lidl - the colours are exactly the same, although evidently the Lidl ones are at the cheaper end, and Einhell. My Aldi saw seems to be made assembled in Germany, and apparently their tools are made by various manufacturers, including Einhell (again!).I doubt the Lidl and Aldi tools are Made in Germany. More likely made by a German company in a factory in China. Like the cheap line of Bosch.
SGL70 is spot on there ..If I were to drill a hole in the wall once every 3 months, I'd go with the cheapest. As my chequered past contains me being a carpenter, I have Makita gear which I do like...but that is a different story
Well in that case a cordless should do for the odd rawl plug. I would not want to besmirch (or reccomend) any manufacturer on the basis of single tool experience. Sure helps even if you have sockets, when putting in an odd screw.It's just for general drilling in all sorts around my place as well as screwing when I need to build stuff. I have no external plugs hence cordless.

Good choice going with makita.i'm a joiner and all my tools are makita 18v cordless now I even have the coffee maker.makitas range is far more vast than any other makes on the market and now you own some batteries it will allow you too buy other tools as bare units cutting costs massively.As an update, I've just ordered a Makita DHP459SFE 18V 3.0Ah Li-Ion LXT Brushless Cordless Combi Drill from Scewfix @ £169. I had earmarked a DeWalt at £150 from Screwfix, but that offer ended last night and its back to £200.
It had better last me many years as we are now on rice and beans for a while.
I'm curious, since I own a 453, and the OP has just bought a 459 - are they reasonable value for money? I found this explaination of the different series https://www.its.co.uk/blog/buying-guides/what-makita-drill-to-buy-2014/ - my 453 is fine for 'light' work (it depends what you mean by light), but what do you use? I assume something a bit more powerful.Good choice going with makita.i'm a joiner and all my tools are makita 18v cordless now I even have the coffee maker.
