corded drill

I have a 3 amp corded B&D drill that is about 6 years old. I have completely beaten it into submission and it is time for a new one (I already have a 9.6v cordless makita that I use for smaller jobs.)

Just wondering what everyone out there uses in a corded drill. I am particularly interested in what features everone finds important (amps, with or without reverse, keyed vs keyless etc.)

For corded, I like 3/8" chuck, reversible, variable speed. I like a keyed chuck on a corded drill because of the greater power of the drill.

Porter Cable Model 666 T handle, 3/8 variable speed, reversable. Best $130 I have spent on a drill, and I use them hard.

If it's just drilling small holes that you are after (less than 1.5" in wood), go with any Milwaukee 3/8 holeshooter with a metal chuck. Keyless is nice, keyed is better - no slipping.
