Default Proxon 220TBM any good?

I'm looking at the Proxon 220TBM mini bench drill for drilling pcbs.... anyone ever used one of these I'd like to hear your thought's.

Some people report over heating after about 10 minutes, just wondering if I should stay clear maybe get a rotary tool and press instead... one person I know of bought a similar one and drilled vent holes in and added a CPU fan - I don't want to be doing that.

Apparently the Xenon 220TBX is the daughter of the Proxon, I'm told that it's exactly the same build but in a different colour for laboratory use, it's also a lot dearer because it isn't massed produced like the Proxon.

So I don't know what to do, any advice would be welcome.
