Good Out of The Box tool for Savvy Folks
10 August 2017
* Packing - Top notch and secure. No damage there.
* Delivery - On time and prompt.
* Fit and Finish - Overall satisfactory. Quite expected from a brand as this.
* Usability - Good grip. Kind of bulky. The oval shape makes manual mode a little getting used to. Good number of stock bits that should suffice normal household repairs.
* Device as a Tool - Straight out of the box I was able to easily unscrew and screw back a 4 inch VESA mount screw that was never touched for a good 10 years - 5 stars right there. Motor has quite a torque. Disassembled and re-assmebled my PC no problem with stock heads. Pretty handy and slick.
* Cons - 1.5V batteries require frequent replacement if used heavily. I can live with that as I use rechargeable ones. So it's not much of a con for me but average users may find it to be frustrating.
Seeing the helpfulness of my review posted 2 years ago I think I owe the community another long term usage update.
-Yes, the stock bits tend to get rusty, but a good diesel wash or WD40 address that for me.
-I've become used to this tool now and I'm still using it in both modes - manual as well as motored.
-The battery operated motor comes in handy when on the road or when there's no power in the work area.
-My piece has lasted me well and still going strong with 2 years of extensive use/abuse.
