Very low quality.

Even though it's not a "deal" the Husky ratcheting multi-bit for $12.88 is a much better buy. It's probably the best ratcheting screwdriver I've tried, and I've tried quite a few.

This actually looks really nice. I'm gonna pick one up.

This item has been just under $5 since Black Friday at my local stores. My closest two stores have been sold out for a couple weeks.

I guess I'm just old school...I turn my screw driver, then I do it again. Rinse, repeat.

I have a set of these and they are not top shelf but you guys are making them sound like harbor freight freebies. No they are not amazing but they aren't bad. For the average Joe, they will probably last a long time. And they have a lifetime warranty. For 5 bucks l, if you want some ratcheting drivers, these fit the bill. Much easier to use than the heavy multibit one because they have the normal shape of a screwdriver. You can also put pressure on back of handle, unlike husky with mutibits the stick out of back of handle and tear your hand up. At 5 bucks, the hate is not warranted.

Bought this last time. They are low quality as people are reporting since the screw tip already showed wear after the first use...but they're fine to throw in a drawer for quick fixes. I'd buy them again for $5.

I got that one at work and while it does work, if you need to unscrew more than say a handful of screws it will cramp your hand up.

Must get paid hourly instead of by the job then. Why wear and tear ones body up when there are better options that are faster and more efficient

I almost bought this, then I asked how would I use this and why... still haven't bought it..
Confused what the purpose of there would be.

Single use screwdrivers are good because they have no flex and are very sturdy.

Racheting are good because they ratchet AND you can swap out bits.

What purpose do these serve? Worst of both worlds - they have some wobble and are single bit

Husky is generally not a cheap brand. This tool also likely qualifies for Husky's Lifetime warranty, so if it breaks you may return it for a replacement at any HD. I don't know many screw drivers that cost $1.25 that come with a lifetime warranty.

I get your point. My concern is that if it's not a great tool to begin with, I'll probably never use it and it will be a waste of space and money.

Hmm, why? Because of the weight?

If I'm spinning out low-torque screws I keep the driver still in my hand and spin the bit between my thumb and index.

I definitely think of these multi-bit ratcheting drivers as more of convenience tools to keep around the house than professional tools, so I didn't evaluate them as such. I'll defer to your experience for more frequent use.

Not so much weight but the shape of the handle. They are definitely nice convenience tools to toss in a drawer and use occasionally.

I love my Overdrivers. The ability to speed screws in & out makes it a real timesaver over other ratcheting screwdrivers.

I watched the demo, that thing is awesome! I was looking at getting a skil power driver since its fairly small and usb chargeable but figure it would be dead when I need it next.

I own a set of these, and I also own the Husky Multi-Bit Quick Load ratcheting driver. I like them both! I like having some ratcheting screwdrivers laying around that have a fixed bit, especially the T bits, because these are the two most common sizes I run across, and with these I don't have to change any bits to be ready... The Husky Quick Load driver also isn't without its flaws, for example the bits are hard to get out without using another bit for assistance, and when pressing hard in the back of it, the stored bits dig into your palm. These are great for things like putting together crap from IKEA...
