Keyless are OK for drivers, but I can't stand them for drills. (Though now that I think about it, the keyless chuck on my old eggbeater drill works just fine. Maybe it's just that production quality has slipped. Or maybe it's that I can't spin the handle as fast as the motor in my powered drill can....)
Thanks for filling out the survey! More people said that they had problems with the chuck than I would have imagined. It was up there with weight issues and battery life. This is definitely an issue that I will be looking at more!
