Does not performed as advertised
I built a shed and last fall (I live in CT) with a small 6'x10' landing at the front door. I used these 2.5" screws to attach the 5/4 PT wood decking to the 2x8 joints below, as well as multiple other sizes throughout the project (all just using a battery powered drill). I just went back this summer to add in railings and noticed a few of the screw heads were sticking up proud of the surface. When I went to tighten them down, they spun freely meaning they had broken somewhere. I quickly realized that about half of all the screws used in the 5/4 were broken just below the first thread, providing almost zero holding strength. These screws had only been through a single winter and the first part of a summer before breaking (although they could have broken last fall) which is not acceptable for an item being sold specifically for "decking" purposes. I will be trying another brand of screw (GRK) for future projects as the extra few dollars is easily worth my time of not having to replace these annually. I'd recommend others to avoid this brand as well.

Started off Great but failed in less than a week
I used these for my new deck - 2 2 5lb boxes. The day I finished the deck and finally sat back to relax - the sun was setting just right and I noticed a bunch of the screws were slightly raised above the deck surface. I thought "no big deal", so I grabbed the screw gun and went to tighten them up. Imagine my surprise when all the screws I went to tighten were broken! None of them had been in the wood more than two weeks and they all were tight (unbroken) when I placed them earlier. How did these all break AFTER I put them in (and they all broke in the wood, not from torque). Amazingly poor quality! So, I checked about 200 screws and about 50 of them were simply snapped (like a bunch of others on here observed happening to them!). Cant believe anyone continues to sell (or make) these!

    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.

    A Great Screw!
    I love these screws with the star-drive. They are so easy to drive in versus Phillips head screws. The screw bit stays in touch with the screw head without bouncing out. I almost only buy these now.

    These screws are great. They sink nicely into wood or plywood and don’t strip out. The coating does rub off slightly if you remove a screw and then screw it in elsewhere. They also match the color of wood closely enough so that from a distance you can’t tell they are there. We use these screws to face the walls in our garage along with other outdoor applications like building a shed etc.

    Screws worked very well. Driver did not cam out of star head on screw, and screws cinched up well holding both wood members tightly together. Just remember that for the screws to cinch up tightly, the proper length fastener must be selected for the particular wood members being fastened.
