Click on the links to check out the Amazon reviews of these tools.  So lets talk about what I think are the best budget drills.

Drill – Homeowner

Autosense Drill

Black and Decker 20V Autosense under $70 on Amazon – It is rare that an innovative new technology is put into a tool and works.  The Autosense not only works, it works well.  The drill is powerful ergonomic and simple to operate.  The Autosense feature makes even the most novice user a pro and properly torques the screw every-time.  With 20V power even a pro would appreciate this tool. Our review of the Autosense.

Drill – Professional

PORTER-CABLE PCC606LA 20-Volt 1/2-Inch Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver Kit Two Battery Kit – $140 on Amazon – Think of the Prosumer Porter Cable 20V drill as a DeWalt that went to the dark-side.  Apart from its StarWars looks, the drill is a tough budget workhorse.  The PC is tough and powerful drill and will hold its own on most any job site.
