Cordless Drill

I am looking for a cordless drill, just for some DIY, and mainly for screwing things together. Any recommendations please?

Yep, that's what I thought.
Need to know as recommendations would be different for a shed / tv stand for example.

Anything for less than say £100. I have been told Dewalt are the best but as I will only use it probably a handful of times its not worth the cost. Yes that was a typo. All sorted.

I got this from Screwfix about six months back. I have to say that it has dealt with everything I have chucked at it. Well pleased.
Check out the reviews for it also.

Dewalt / Bosch Blue / Makita or Panasonic are the ones I'd look at.

Go for Lithium Ion battery if you can, a good Amp / hour is more important than a higher W (e.g. 12w / 14.4w / 18w etc) and if you can, 2 battery kit is well worth it...
