Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AyeSail These White screws are more than adequate, for me.
I had installed more than a dozen wall tracks using these screws in my home in Annapolis. I used a couple different drills with bits, including the Worx power hand drill. All tracks were installed on studs and I hung a dozen cabinets and Gladiator accessories on these tracks. Of all the screws I used, I stripped about one half dozen but that was due to not drilling pre-holes in the studs.
Since then, I removed all Gladiator cabinets, accessories, and tracks and moved to Florida, where I'm in the process of re-installing this Gladiator Garageworks system. So far, I've only installed a couple track, with these screws into the back wall which consists of drywall backed against 3/4 inch plywood, which in turn is attached to studs. Since the stud finder cannot locate the studs, I just attached the tracks to the drywall - plywood combo, successfully. While not relying on this to hang cabinets, I am hanging Gladiator shelves and accessories. Since, aside from the back wall, the other walls are bare (painted) masonry, I will have to use tapcon screws to attach the tracks and mount the cabinets.
I said all this to say, I'm actually reusing these white screws, with no problem, especially since I'm pre-drilling holes for the screws in the drywall/plywood boards on the back wall. I did find, however, I had to make certain the drill bit was perfectly perpendicular to the screw heads to prevent slipping and stripping of the screw heads. So, for me, these screws are quite fine, and I'm happy I could reuse them with no problems.
While the attached photo may appear a bit "busy," my garage in a work in progress as I've just moved in to my new home, its added to show the shelves attached to the track.

They shouldn't have painted the screw heads or used Phillips head.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will Use a 1/4 impact driver, makes a huge difference
I just installed an entire wall of gladiator 8' wall panels this past weekend. I installed well over 200 screws without a single one stripping out. I predrilled and used a 1/4 hex impact driver, made a world of difference. Using only a drill with a Phillips bit does not work well at all. Out of the hundreds of these screws I have installed in the past two years in my basement, shed and now garage only one package had half of the screw heads filled in with paint.

I experienced the same problems as the previous reviewer. I ended up buying higher quality screws at a local home improvement store, and replacing the color-matched screws where visible to assure a consistent appearance.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UCT White but otherwise not a good product
The only benefit of this product is the color matches that of the Geartrack channels and Gearwall panels. The paint makes it difficult for the Phillips head bit to maintain good purchase and thus it tends to slip which in turn removes some of the paint! It is better to use regular deck screws and then paint them if that is important to you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ben Not the best option
These screws are guaranteed to strip. The Husky screws for that system work much better, are thicker, have a better head and come with the special bit. I used 2 boxes of Husky brand screws and dropped 2 of them, with non stripping at all. I ran out and had to use the Gladiator brand that came with a kit and dropped 8 out of 10 I was screwing in, and stripped every one of them.
The Husky screws are even cheaper and have been in stock at several of the Home Depots in my area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bigdog Worst screw ever.
I bought 30 packages of these screws to install the 8' gear wall sections. The screws are poor quality. I had at least 30% of the screws that stripped out the head even when predrilling. Some of the screws where bent in manufacturing which did not help in installation. Do your self a favor and buy some Torx head screws.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Good with no stripping
These worked great.
I pre-drilled the holes to make installation easier for me since I did everything myself.
I would recommend doing this extra step as it seems many people had issues with the screws stripping otherwise.
I put up 3 boxes of these with zero stripping problems. The paint did chip off a bit (Not that noticeable) and I may get some touch up paint, but overall they look and function as expected. Downside is that they are a little expensive for screws.
