Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Speeds up drywall installation I purchased this product on the advise of a professional drywall installer after I was installing drywall in my basement with a cordless drill/screwdriver. It allowed me to significantly increase the speed of driving the screws into the drywall and thus decreased overall installation time. The only problem is that you have to be at the proper angle or slippage will occour. February 27, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This drill will save your time ... This tool will save you time installing number of screws. Very powerful and has depth stop setting so each and every time the screw is drive exactly to the perfect position. Highly recommended. August 8, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Job Made this first time drywaller look good! Was an easy job. September 18, 2007
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No surprises - functioned as expected HAve only tried the screw gun out but the depth adjustment was easy and did not seem to change as some of the reviews indicate. Will give it a good workout in a couple of weeks November 20, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't last two weeks We bought three of these DW255 for a jobsite. Two have already died within two weeks of use. Not at all durable for our needs. Hoping its just a bad batch as I've usually had great luck with my older DeWalt tools. These new models just are sub par and I'm highly dissappointed. September 14, 2012
