Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by do NOT buy this junk. do NOT buy this junk. Buy stainless I bought boxes of this junk to make my fence. I think I am building it again for the 3rd time. The screws have broken multiple times. I have boards that out of 6 screws, 5 are broken. I replaced the screws before with some of the leftovers I had. I brought a bunch of broken screws back to Home Depot to get a refund so I can buy stainless (about the same cost) but was told that I have to deal with the manufacturer since I bought 3 months ago. The fence is barely a year old. Can you imagine if I actually used the screws to make a deck?? I used different size screws but only chose to rate this one. They were ALL horrible and broke.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty Good screw, hard to start but once "bitting" drove quickly These screws were FAIRLY hard to start, but once they bit into the wood they drove pretty quickly. VERY few of the screws had defective "star bit" heads (<1%), and those that were "defective" were primarily "over paint". The star bit head COULD have been a tad deeper to keep the power drill from slipping, but that isn't a knock on them. June 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Go back to the phillips head. Star heads keep stripping.......With the phillips head I can install and remove and reinstall many times w/o stripping. June 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great screw, but inventory limited We are in the midst of replacing the boards on a 1900 sq' deck. My son & I love the product, great grip, seats well in the board, head doesn't strip etc. But we started putting in Phillips Head and Home Depot has moved all of this type of inventory over to Star or other related versions. I would suggest buying all that you need so you don't get caught changing screw types midstream.....was surprised they would phase out Phillips Head. While the project has gone well, pulling out the old screws to attach new boards has been an education. The old cheap screws made the boards break down faster. Life of the decking you use may only be as good as the type of fastener you use. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Problem With Messing Up Heads I built a 700+SF two-level deck using treated Southern Pine in 2002. I used these screws. I had no instances of the bit stripping the slot out of the screw. July 23, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny! I have used two packs of these screws (870) and have not had one stripped head. I have to buy two more packs to finish replacing the deck boards. These screws are great and so easy to use. I wish the contractor that built the deck would have used these srews, instead of steel air gun nails December 27, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work Great! These screws worked great for the dock I built. I especially like the head configuration due to being a dual bit head. No slippage at all when inserting into treated lumber. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid fasteners Gradually replaced poor nails that the last owner used with these over the last 3 years. I'm sold. Wish the other guy would have used these to begin with. May 24, 2012
