Gyroscopic Screwdriver - 1/4" - 8 V is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited Power I have the older, 7 volt model DeWalt cordless screwdriver and it has a ton of power. This one does not. Won't budge a tough screw, where as my older model will easily drive it in or back it out. Still, the design is good...you merely need to tilt your wrist left or right to invoke the direction to drive the screw in or back it out (no need to press a button or switch). Good for medium duty screw driving that doesn't need a lot of torque...you won't be driving big screws through tough material with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I am an apartment manager and have had about a dozen cheap, rechargeable screwdrivers over the years. We have drills, but those are overkill for many tasks in apartments. I used this screwdriver to change outlets and light switches in an apartment. It worked flawlessly. The gyroscopic control give you excellent speed control. It isn't too heavy and the ability to switch from straight to gun shape was a definite plus. Unlike a drill, I can stick this in my pocket when I don't need it. I let it charge overnight the first time and was able to change 20 outlets and 10 switches from removal to installing the new plates on one charge. This took place over a couple hours. Cheaper screwdrivers had me changing batteries much more frequently. The next day I used it to install a microhood and it had plenty of power to securely tighten the bracket screws into the studs. Initially, I was concerned about the price and only having the one battery. However, it lasts longer than most and charges really fast. The gyroscope control is really cool and in my opinion worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gyroscopic Screwdriver is Tops I purchased the gyroscopic screwdriver some months ago and it has been one of most used tools. The ability to change speeds by the way to turn the drill is a great feature plus the fact the grip can be changed. The light helps illuminate the screw location and I have used the tool to drill and drive or loosen fasteners. The charge indicator helps you know if you have enough power to get through a job. Charge time is fast- my screwdriver came with a flashlight, charger,extra battery and carry bag. Well made, lightweight,versatile and valuable sums it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Dedicated Screwdriver Now I love my DEWALT 18-Volt XRP Ni-Cad, so much so that I was going to give this screwdriver a shot. After first trying out the Dewalt Gyroscopic Screwdriver at home, I wanted to take it back. After using a 18 volt impact driver, this screwdriver felt under powered. What could this screwdriver do that my driver could not do better? Well, for one thing it was less likely to strip threads, if you plan to screw and unscrew the same hole, this screwdriver provides the right touch. The screwdriver is not under powered, but has the right power. It has found a home in my workshop. I was a little upset that the screwdriver now only comes with one battery, but then again this is an adjustment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the gyro First of all, I had to get used to it with the whole twist of the wrist thing. But once you get the hang of it, this small screwdriver is awesome. The only problem that I didn't like was that it only came with one battery. But charging it was quick. The first project I used it on was building a 3 drawer cabinet. Getting into small little corners was at ease. Anyway, I would recommend this small new device for small little projects. They really need to put in an extra battery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to justify the cost This tool works great, but I still have a hard time justifying the $100 price tag on this. It works as promised once you get used to the features. I have only had it a week and have not used it as extensivly as I thought I would. I still pull out my impact driver when power is needed. It worked great when doing electrical items such as installing switches or outlets and the cover plates. The power was not too bad, but still lacked the oomph needed for the heavier work. All in all a good tool, could use a second battery for the price of this thing. This might be more valuable to someone who uses screw drivers extensively or rich DIY's, but for a general contractor, it is just an overpriced gadget that will spend more time in the bag then in hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Handicapped I had a stroke several years ago. I still have limited use of my right hand. I can operate the Gyro because I can grip, but to move fingers to move switches is hard. I have used this often in the last two months since I bought it. This is for all the common screwdriver work not like hammer drill work. Great product for all, especially the handicapped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cant go wrong with Dewalt I had purchased the Black and Decker Gyro a few weeks before I saw the Dewalt and while I do like the B&D Gyro it lacked a clutch feature, don't get me wrong that is still a great product and I would suggest getting that if you are not wanting to spend the money on the Dewalt. The Dewalt has a very solid feel and more the feel of the electric drivers I am used to. Easier to use than the B&D and it has a removable battery as well so if you have more than one battery you can just keep using it where as the B&D does not. The gyro function on both are great, the B&D has finer granularity, smoother, than the Dewalt if that matters to you. The Dewalt will run you about $100 and the B&D about $40 so take your pick. If you are just going to use these tools casually then spending $100 may be a bit steep but if you like Dewalt and trust them to get the job done no matter what it is then $100 is a small price to pay. Both have great torq, I was really surprised with the B&D when I let me brother in-law using it to pull out a 4" sheet rock screw out of a 2x4 and it had no problem doing it. The Dewalt did just as well when we were working on another project.
