Nothing wrong with Bosch. About 20 years ago they were one of the few good brands. Seeing how B&D had gone down the pan. However, we have a lot more choice now.
I recon a lot of the tools bought in Aldi/Lidl will still be going strong in 20 years time. I have had some for over 10 years already. Not that anyone else on here ever shops for tools in Aldi or Lidl  ok2

Absolutely, for my DIY I've got  a few Bosch tools but have increasingly moved to DeWalt. Still have a couple of old B&D tools but my battery drill was replaced with a much better and smaller Bosch one.

Whilst some of my power tools were quite expensive I justified it (to my wife!) saying that it would cost far more if we got someone in. Which is true as I've saved a fortune and do a better job in most cases than the "professionals".
