      Excellent for the intended purpose
      I purchased this screwdriver about 6 months ago have have used it more than my electric drill! It is great for small jobs around the house and of course for its intended purpose of driving in screws. If you need more power opt for a 19.2 volt drill but you will be surprised at the jobs this little guy can tackle.

      short lived performance
      I've had this drill/screwdriver for about a year and it no longer holds a charge. I was hoping it would have lasted longer. I really only used it a few times.

      Waste of Money

      For a simple cordless screwdriver, it's way too big and the "adjustable" handle only adjusts to positions which defeat its purpose. Do yourself a favor; if you just need to drive in the screws on some pre-fab bookshelves, buy a $5 cheapo from that discount place.

      Powerful Cordless Screwdriver

      This driver fits the hand very well and is much easier to use than the 4AA battery alkaline model I previously had. There is nothing clumsy about it. I wasn't prepared for the amount of torque it has. If there is a possibility of stripping a screw in softer materials, judicious use of the power control clutch is strongly recommended. The driver engages quickly when you activate it and is very strong so make sure you are ready when you pull the trigger. This takes a few times to get used to, but the power provided to drive fasteners is enormous. The price at $34, even if it's not on sale, is a great deal for the power and ergonomics this tool provides. The only thing that keeps me from rating this product excellent is the battery. It's a Ni-cd. With the types of batteries available in 2015, I have no idea why they chose to use 40 year old technology to power this device.

      Used it once to install wall mount for flat screen TV. Didn't need it much. Put it away for the next project.

      Great Driver

      It is small enough to get into cramped areas and has enough power to drive the toughest screws!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Nice Tool, Bad Battery

      I bought this tool from a Sears Hardware store that was closing. Its a Nice tool. Love the Clutch. Works great working on my Motorcycle. It has A lot of Plastic pieces that need to be screwed. And the Clutch prevents stripping and breaking of the plastic. The problem is, the Battery Sucks. Only last a few months. I don't know what Sears problem is?? Most Cordless Tools no longer use a NiCad type battery. Lithium ion is the newer one. A Replaceable one would be nice. Just like another Craftsman Screw Driver. Sitting in its case. Why? Dead battery 3 months after purchase.
