Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bluedge We be jammin'
I'm very disappointed. I've always held Rigid tools in high esteem, and maybe it works fine with shorter screws, but I was using 3 inch screws, and it jammed half the time at the beginning of a clip (screws tangle and catch at entry to slide). And at the end of a clip the strip gets tight and pulls plastic into the guide edges and again jams. Spent a lot of time fighting it the whole weekend. Ordered alternate brand "S" from online supplier "A". It cost more, is bigger and thus heavier, but comes with the "W" option. It has Worked flawlessly for two days.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JustMe Not really a DIY tool
Practice and adjustments highly recommended. Once it's' "tuned" to the job at hand. Works well. But wasteful. I gave it 3 stars, because it's not a true homeowner DIY tool out of the box ready to go... For a homeowner, I recommend a simple screwgun attachment with a sleeve. I recommend this tool with common sense in mind. Needs a little work. Takes about an hour to set it up for a task, from construction to drywall. Faster to use a impact driver on construction or air nailer. It doesn't sink 3" screws very well.

At first I wanted to punch this thing through the drywall and leave it for dead. I almost returned it to the store in a fit of rage. I was lucky if I could get 50% of the screws to drive as expected. I fumed and struggled through my first few sheets of drywall before I conceded and used my impact driver to finish out my day. That night I went online and read reviews until I found one that gave me the tip I needed...
To get this tool to work, and work well, you MUST keep the motor running. Don't be shy. Pull the trigger and let the bit spin before, during and after pushing the screw to the wall. Once I figured this out I was flying through the drywall and smiling all the way. Only occasionally would I miss a screw and almost always it was operator error; not the tool's fault.
Do not expect to get into the corners or tight spots. Otherwise, pull the trigger and let 'er rip!

Don't buy! Frustrating tool. Erratic screw feed - some strips OK but others problematic. Hard to set screws especially above head. Returned & bought a Hitachi model that works great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by penmkr This thing sucks rocks!
This is one of the worst purchases I've ever made from Home Depot. Let's get this straight - - I'm not an HD basher. Just about every thing I've bought from HD has been great. Their 7 1/4" circ saw is magnificent. I just wish this screwdriver was. It jams CONSTANTLY. Misfeeds CONSTANTLY, the screws are supposed to automatically feed and line up to be driven into the material. NOPE!, Doesn't happen. The screws jam into the guide, or the plastic strip won't traverse the guide and jams. Out of a strip of 50 screws, 40% wind up on the floor. This thing is so bad, that I literally take the screw strips and use a regular cordless screwdriver to drive the screws. Something wrong with this picture.
Save your money and DON'T buy this thing. I would take it back but I bought it last September while I was trying to get county building permits for a construction project. I just took it out of the box and what a mess.

I've used this driver for drywall, decks, and tile backer-board, and it has worked well in all of those applications. The only drawback for me is that the strips of collated nails are so short that big jobs require constant reloading. That isn't a fault of the gun. Still, collated is pretty fast especially when doing drywall work alone.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Possibilitarian Terribly frustrating.
Had the previous model and changed because I needed the longer screws that this model (supposedly) had the ability to drive. However, there is so much play in the drive bit that more times than not, the screw either bent (which made it a whole lot of fun to remove) or just misfired. Then even with the bit adjustment adjusted for maximum depth, it would still not counter sink the screws. I was laying a deck and had to sink virtually every screw with a battery operated drill with a square bit. Horrible, engineering. Can't even believe they are selling this. Certainly didn't live up to previous Rigid tools. I strongly recommend you avoid this purchase.
