Question 27 forces the user to use each response once and only once, which isn't reflective of how I view things.

I did all the questions but it wouldn't take some of my answers so I gave up.

The survey is defective---#27 was like 'Whack a Mole" Every time I checked a box--another check would vanish.---Waste of time.

Too many questions to finish

But note that tools can be over designed.
Metabo a very high quality German Tool manufacturer went to an outside design house to design this Pro drill to sell in the +$500 range but it was a complete bust because of the way it looks. No Pro wanted to show up on a job site and be laughed off because of the radical look.

After six months of trying to sell it, Metabo stopped building it sold the remaining units on Clearance sales. I bought one and it's really a very good high quality drill with both an SDS and a conventional chuck. The radical design just didn't catch on.

#27 doesn't work. Then I got sent back and scolded because I must have clicked too many answers when only two were allowed but I didn't see where it said that anywhere at the beginning. The number of children I have and their ages doesn't have anything to do with building a better mouse trap. The word "mandatory" is used way too often, it sounds like something the governemnt would have something to do with. Gave up at #27.

The entire poll is bogus and something more is amiss.
