Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this power drill driver based on manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this power drill driver now is good, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing, or has some defect in the product? Whatever you buy online, this is a likely chance. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). But still, you want to make sure if the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Koki Holdings America, Ltd has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. This power drill driver has positive reviews on the internet

Reading on Phone

Some people have good experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item, they have to go through the whole process of returning them. The point is, people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, so don't read too much into one good or bad review. With that said, reading multiple reviews can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This power drill driver has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this power drill driver more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those to paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See Reviews on AmazonSee Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price Chart

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in three parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and some price prediction I made, just in case if you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. This product became unavailable to purchase, so it's hard to tell. However, the last price change observed between May 9, 2020 and May 12, 2020 was a 0.00% price increase. Since this product is currently unavailable, you might want to check out the list of similar products I gathered in the similar products section!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this power drill driver was $170.01, and the lowest price point was $121.97. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. This product is currently unavailable so I can't really endorse its availability, sadly. If you plan to repeatly purchase this item, I would suggest looking for a similar product or a seller who has this product with better availability! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? I know it's currently unavailable, but if this becomes available a week later, based on past price points, I expect the price to be $159.40 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Make sure Metabo HPT is a brand you can trust

Brands

Metabo HPT doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other power drill driver brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options you might want to check out

Similar Brands

I found 4 brands that have similar products like this one: Bosch, Pink Power, BLACK+DECKER, and DEWALT. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Pink Power. If you're looking for a power drill driver with best reviews, a product from Bosch gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from BLACK+DECKER I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
