As of today, I've owned this set for 7.5 years and they still work as well as the first day. I still use one of the two battery packs it came with; the other I abused and would no longer accept a charge. I did replace the chuck on the drill since the bite was worn from all of the work over the years. I've dropped these guys dozens of times now and every time I pick them back up I am so pleased because they still work.
Overall I've more than recouped my investment, many times over. They have a really natural grip, and they just perform great. Ive been so pleased with these that I purchased several more 18v tools and a couple more 5 amp batteries to compliment this set.
Makita doesn't do EVERY tool the best, but they seem to have a really broad platform, and most of the main tools they offer are solid. The charge time in particular seemed to be the fastest among the competition, and the battery reviews generally seemed most favorable. The newer 5 amp batteries give a much longer run time than the stock batteries.
Overall I would totally recommend these to a friend. Either these, or the yellow competitor would be a fine choice for a new drill/driver set.
