Default Milwaukee's new 12v cordless tools

Has anyone tried any of the new 12v lithium-ion stuff from milwaukee? I like the looks of the hacksaw, it looks like it would be convenient. I saw the screwdriver and hacksaw kit in the HD today, and at a buck 99 its purdy tempting. what yall think ?

I own almost every tool Milwaukee makes. I love the hackzall.
I used the impact for triming out 'cuz it's screaming fast. I also have the driver w/ no impact, inspection camera and laser. Not to mention all the 18 volt and 28 volt and 120 volt, I've spent a fortune w/ them. Hackzall is definately handy. I just throw it in my bag, it takes up no more room than the impact, and you've always got a sawzall beside you.

Is the hackzall really formidable enough to cut 1/2''-1'' pipe?

I paid $179 just for the hackzall and love it by the way. Have been looking for the impact but haven't seen it yet.
