Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rodu Learning curve required
Take the time to read the instructions and get familiar with how it is supposed to operate because it definitely requires attention to detail to get set up correctly. The 2 main things are that the screw length gauge must be set exact to the size of screws you are using and the gun requires the operator to use a good amount of force to set the screw correctly. I went through 1 strip of screws before I got everything right, but once I got the hang of it everything went good. Wish I had purchase this years ago.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by TME not worth the money
I just bought one for a job on my own house and can say you are much better off buying a hand feed screw gun. this one jams all the time, it only sets about 1/3 of the screws to full depth.

I purchased this driver because the bit for my other (expensive) unit was worn out and I needed to finish a job. There was a little learning curve at first however after about 10 screws the unit was operating great. I received the new bit for my other unit before the job was finished. After one strip of screws I went back to the Ridged driver because it was so much faster. I used the unit to install around 4000 screws with very few failures.

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!

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.

It doesn't feed well and it doesn't drive the screws in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ArtfulTouch Lousy - Buy another brand
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.
