    Try Bosch Rotary Hammer drills. These use the drill bits with SDS sign on them. They are reliable and last a long time. hammer drill are not able to penetrate the wall.

    The brands like Makita, Hilti and B&D or Dewalt (which is also under B&D) are well known brands. Makita and Hilti are very well established in construction arena.

    Bosch is in between. just get the entry level rotary will do. Price around $200 +/- make sure you get the SDS drill bits from Bosch not the 3rd party ones as they are not reliable.

    I use bosch, Dewalt, b&D and Makita before.

    I thought impact hammer drills should be more than enough?

    Bosch, Makita, Hilti.
    Dont go to places like HomeFix to get them. Go to Serangoon Road (Thieve's Market) area to buy from the independant stores. Better prices, and they will guide you along on what you need too .
    The sooner you get it, the longer you enjoy it.

    It should be more than sufficeint for the job. If it was a drill that was going to be used professionally I'd be looking at a rotary hammer but for a few holes around the house a regular hammer drill will do the job fine and won't require the special drill bits required by a rotary hammer / impact drill.

    I always start drilling with a smaller bit as it can penetrate the wall better, then increase the size of the drill bit to get the size i want. Using B&D too (Can't rem the wattage). I also find the quality of the bit important.
