Can't Beat It For Value
I feel like most people wouldn't buy this drill because Ozito is known as a cheap and nasty brand, but it costs only $50, and has a 3 year warranty - you really can't lose! If it is rubbish and dies within 3 years, you can just take it back and get a replacement for free and then the warranty on that drill starts. I bought mine in 2016 and it is still going strong.
I understand that tradesmen do get stuck on a particular brand and then stick to it, but for the home handyman, you just don't need to be paying $300 for a hammer drill.
It's hard to go past for the value for money.

Best bang for buck power tool I own
For the money you pay - this drill can not be beat. It has a legendary reputation amongst tradesman as being one of the best bang for buck power tools available. This is the second one of these Ozito drills I have owned and is a slight cosmetic refresh on the older model. I am sure it is an Ozito branded clone of one of the major brand names time proven models. This is better than your typical Ozito quality and is a stand out in their range. You can abuse it and it keeps going strong. And when it finally gives up - if it is not eligible for an exchange - buy a new one! You'll still be miles ahead.
Questions & Answers
How many Watts does the Ozito HDR-3000 have? the last drill I had 'burnt out while screwing in a large screw into hardwood it had 500 Watt capacity, (It was not a OZITO) Is it best to have more Wattage for harder work?
While in general more power (Wattage) is better for harder work there are other factors that make a drill suitable for this - most notably the mechanical aspects. I have found the 710W HDR-3000 to be more than adequate for occasional to semi-frequent home use. If you are a serious tradesman that will use this all day everyday then maybe look at something a bit more expensive. But I know plenty of tradespeople that use this in their daily kit. You may want to investigate using a driver to insert fasteners and use the drill to prepare the right sized hole for a particular fastener. Drills are not really designed to insert fasteners.
