Coated deck screws are usually a heavier gauge, and of course being painted are usually meant for outdoors. I don't know if I would use a drywall screw for a place where it would get rained on, directly. But to say drywall screws are poor and weak wood screws, I just have to ask WTF you're using them for? Someone always says something negative about drywall screws and I always wonder why. Maybe they are shills hoping cunningham's law will kick in and some duckfark like myself will step in and say good things about drywall screws? Well here I am.

Things I don't believe drywall screws are good for:

Decks
Wet projects

Things I've used drywall screws on with absolutely no failures on, so far:

Speakers, subwoofers(from 25lb to 150+lbs)
Storage cabinets
Drawers
Boxes
Shelves
Woodworking jigs

I mean, each screw can hold like hundreds of lb, so maybe someone can enlighten me to more situations where they'd be inappropriate? Aside from, they're "not fine woodworking" or whatever.

I know some accomplished woodworkers who have used drywall screws in fine furniture. Sam Maloof and Gary Knox Bennet are a couple notable ones.

I've had a couple failures *installing* drywall screws, and those were from my overzealous throttle on an old corded drill and I snapped the heads off. But once in use? Nothing that I know of has failed.

Except for the last 2 weeks, the amazon price has been the same since August.

Ever since this Deal, https://slickdeals.net/f/13567132-25lb-grip-rite-philips-bugle-head-coarse-thread-sharp-point-drywall-screws-1-1-4-or-1-5-8-24-87-home-depot, I got spoiled, having gotten 3 boxes.

If this were for a 5 pound box @ 5$, then I'd bite .... just like a good roll of duct tape, you can NEVER have enough drywall screws around.

That's a super slick deal, but it's not available any more and also I don't need 25 lbs. of screws for random small projects around the property. Good for you for getting in on the deal, though. nod

I just don't use drywall screws anymore. They make poor weak wood screws which I use a lot of. Would like to see a deal on coated deck type screws.

Lowe's has a much better deal. You can buy 25 lbs there for what nine lbs would cost here. If you have a lot of drywall to do, one lb will not go far.

Lowe's Item # 112342 Model # 48366
Fas-n-Tite #6 x 1-5/8-in Bugle Coarse Thread Drywall Screws (25-lb)
$39.98
4,750 pieces per package
