So I am in this same boat right now. I had narrowed it down to either this

ridgid
http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18...601/203810442#

This...

bosch
http://smile.amazon.com/Bosch-DDS182...osch+dds182-02

Or POSSIBLY this dewalt combo
http://smile.amazon.com/DEWALT-DCK28...productDetails

Although, the dewalt is really more then I want to spend.

Mine would also be for stuff around the house. I will be doing some home improvements in the near future (putting in a 2nd bathroom and a small deck)

I had been reading and seen that brushless seems to be the way to go nowadays. But my tools would probably sit more then then are used, as I am not a general contractor, plumber, carpenter and the like.

Are the ridgid/bosch good quality? I have never used them. The dewalt, obviously the name is recognizable. I had never heard of ridgid, but the lifetime warranty seems nice!

however, the bosch is REALLY compact, brushless motor, gets REALLY good reviews and my buddy swears by them. Not that I am going to buy based solely on his opinion, but it always helps.

Any thoughts?

I have an 18 v bosch. Like you I am not a heavy user but when I do use it it gets the job done. I know thats not much help.
