I have a mix of Bosch and Makita and have had great experiences with both brands.

Had the dewalt 20v but but didn't like them, kept having problem with them so ended up getting a makita kit. Haven't really had a chance to give it a try yet. Played around with it a bit I think I'm gonna like it a lot.
