I'm rebuilding a V10 Triton engine right now and it's come in handy. A little bit of a time saver.

Really a thumbs down? It's cheaper by far than anyone else unless you get refurbished. C'mon.

Genuine question from someone who hasn't used one of these: what's the benefit of this over a cordless drill/driver?

The cheapest I found for new one was $84 on Amazon. Sorry I'll only post if it's 50% off from now on.

And by the way I wasn't arguing it. I could care less. Just thought I would try to contribute.

Good boy. Just because it's a current low price doesn't make it a slick deal. Live and learn...

I have 2 of these screwdrivers. I use them for working on med equipment. They are small for tight spaces and can give very light force to not strip out screws on expensive med equipment.

For lightduty work, it's much more convenient having something smaller. It's probably easier for most common household tasks, requiring less torque than a drill/driver. Anytime you need a screwdriver and would use a handtool, this would be a good replacement. Harder to use drill drivers to change batteries for toys, remotes, or any simple task like putting up a picture, this screwdriver can do the job. Building Ikea furniture or the like would require less torque and you would risk damaging the piece if you use a drill/driver. Even my 12v Drill is too strong for that and requires more finesse. I've broken a few light faceplates by overtightening with my drill/driver, and if not careful, can break many items by using too much torque.

In summary, if you were to use a handtool screwdriver or if your drill/driver might be too strong.. this would be a good replacement or the right tool for the job!
