The head is not deep enough so the bit strips nearly every screw. These are horrible to work with. The pressure needed to hold the drill, and bit from slipping is huge. I hate these and regret buying them. DO NOT BUY

These screws are pretty much a perfect match for my Trex Beach Dune composite deck boards. They are fairly sturdy, I had just one break off while installing fascia (see picture). I found the star driver bit that came with them to work alright for awhile but then I switched to my DeWalt star driver bit which was tougher and fit better. Its probably a good idea to have a solid T20 bit on hand, dont trust the one in the box.
The screws drill out the composite material a little to ensure it isn't stressing the board too much. Most countersink well, others don't. I drove these 1" to 1.5" away from a board's edge with no issue. The thin threading towards the screw head ensures you can always reverse and drive the screw out if you miss a joist. I used an impact driver to install mine.

These screws with the square head are prone to strip out. I will be returning these screws and getting star drive screws instead. Out of the 8 I tried to use I stripped out two of the heads. They do not drive through the wood.
I gave them 2 stars. That might be too high. A large portion of them stripped before I could get them in. I had to remove and toss them. And I put a lot effort into making them work. I wouldn't buy them again.
