Speaking from first hand experience here. I bought this about two years ago for this price. This tool has saved me in a tight situation a few times.

Just doing DIY projects around the house, nothing major. If it was drilling or screwing something in, in a tight space it worked just fine.

This is one of those tools you don't think you need, until you need it. I might use it 6 times a year, but when I do, I'm glad I have it. It made those few projects a lot easier.

Some of those negatives seem to be about the standard #2 phillips bit that comes with it.

But if you want one with better reviews for the same price try this one

What's the major difference between this and the right angle tool? Ordered that one for store pick up but haven't gone yet.

I purchased this, and it was very handy, particularly assembling a dozen bar stools with some tight spots. It did break within a year though (cable snapped after trying to loosen a particular tight fastener). I was disappointed, and called DeWalt and it was still under warranty. It was the easiest warranty replacement I ever had (although I rarely go through the trouble)---they asked a few questions, mostly when I purchased it and my address, then sent me the replacement. I now try not to put too much torque on it. I also feel a little bit better about mustard yellow tools knowing Stanley Black & Decker stood behind their DeWalt brand.

I've had this for 2 years. Driving bits in hard places works great low footprint saves jamming fingers. I used it for drilling and destroyed it. Definitely not what it's designed for but save me in a pinch to get the job done and at $15 I'd do it again.

I see both have their own uses. The right angle has a bigger foot print so tight spot won't work. I would think the right angle would definitely do better at drilling. The extension is really not meant for drilling hard.

I am a diy/home user, and have both the right angle and this flexible one. I use the right angle one very often, I find it easy to use and very sturdy. This flexible one I bought 6 months ago "just in case" and I ran into a spot last week running Ethernet cables where nothing else would fit. I was using it with a hex-shanked spade bit to bore a hole in the subfloor, where I had almost zero access. I can't imagine it would hold up to a lot of this use, but since it lasted through at least this one job, it paid for itself.

Usually, there's a better option than this flex 90°. In the rare case there's not a better option, it's worth 3 times the price.

This is designed for drills and has a flex extention. The 90degree one is a about a 6inchextention from the tool. Its is also rated for use with an impact.

Had to drill screws into my truck when installing my new mud flaps, The only way was to take the tires off, so I tried this thing & it saved the day.
