Own and prefer are two different things. I own some Black and Decker cordless stuff. It's been good to me. I will only buy 18v tools. That said, in my construction days, I used Dewalt and Mikita and they were both great. I'd prefer tools of that quality, but my budget doesn't allow it and honestly, I don't need those higher end tool. Hand tools, same deal, Craftsman has been decent but I've recently started switch to Kobalt stuff. The ergonomics are much better. Would I like a garage full of MAC or Snap-on? Sure. But I don't need it and it would be a waste of money for me to buy tools that expensive for no more than I use them.
