Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kent Not Easily Removed for Correction
I am not sure if I can say I would recommend it. The reason is once you screw AZEK board in, you can not easily take it out and correct your mistakes when placing the trim. The screw goes down deep and stays there and does not come out. The only way is to ruin your PVC board that is expensive and cut it out in place. or try to rip it out. If you know you would not make mistake in placing the board then that works well, it covers holes well. it is a bit pricy, I found 16 gauge finish nailer would do a better job.

Not one ever tightened up while being driven thru pvc and into a 2x4. They just spin. This product ruined the pvc and caused alot of aggravation.

Perfect for Azek trim boards, plugs work great, look great. 2.5 inch screws don't poke thru 2x4 .

I've driven thousands of these screws into pvc and composite decking and trim and have had few problems. While I have had a few square drives sheer off, I''ve yet to have any problems with the star drive.
The ability to secure the stock and hide the fastener is a quantum leap over puttying nail holes (in trim) or having nail/screw heads visible on decking.
As far as sheering off heads it could well be a product of too much torque or speed when driving, or using too long of a screw. I use a Dewalt 18v cordless in drill mode, but blip the trigger as I drive. I use 2 1/2 inch screws on decking and 2 inch on trim.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff screws shear easily
I used the azek screws for timber tech composite recently. I have installed composite many times but this is my first time with these screws and with timber tech. all the screws were used for was the boarder around a 12 x 18 deck I had no issues with cracking as other reviewers have said but around 10% sheared off where the threads reverse as they were being driven into treated 2x10. the screw head would all of a sudden start spinning freely near the surface. I managed to pull one out that was not far in yet but for most I had to drill out the screw head slowly as to not melt the boards, then plug each hole and try again. I would not recommend these screws.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MotownVoice Not For The Inexperienced DYI
The internet is festooned with videos by installation professionals showing how easy it is to use this product. And I don't dispute that it is for them. But if you're an inexperienced DIY'er like me ... DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
I executed the installation exactly as I saw it demonstrated. And in every single attempt, before the screw was halfway in the trim (PVC) cracked and broke. I don't know if it's the heat, or the drill was trying to go in too fast (although the videos I saw were of guys driving them in even faster than I did.
But you will be disappointed if you try getting these screws in if you don't have any background in carpentry and installation.
