"Pro use, hardly used on woodscrews but really saves time on component dismantling and reassembly using torx, hex nuts and setscrews, the torque available for such a small tool is remarkable and the gear change "on the fly" is a well conceved feature. The lanyard is a boon as my trade is marine based."
"Love this! This is my husbands but it is me that mainly gets this out. It is so simple to use for all kinds of projects around the house both big and small and makes very quick work of it too! Simply plop a head in of the bit you need and you are away."
"Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. This just keeps on going and is very reliable.
It takes a bit of getting used to the "fast then slow" speed control, but I actually think it's quite a good idea. The fast speed (1) is low-torque for smaller screws and pilot holes, but you can immediately switch to 2 (higher torque) if a screw starts getting tight.
Having two batteries is an added bonus, as is the LED. Not sure how useful the lanyard is.
Bosch don't include any "free" bits or drills, but this would only be an issue if this was your first ever electric screwdriver. I've picked up so many bits and attachments over the years that I really don't need any more.
It comes in a double box. The lower container holds the charger, the detachable upper container holds the drill and spare battery. IMO only the upper box is worth keeping to store the drill in.
The only negative is that it's too easy to accidentally press the reverse button, which locks the driver up completely."
"A very powerful well built tool. Fits in the hand will but the forward and reverse buton difficult to press. Overall a great tool but not sure about the plastic box will soon be broken and thrown away this is more about marketing than use"
"I use this driver for light work on the move. We remove electrical accessory screws (sockets, light switches, cooker outlets etc). Its very light, has good torque for removing and inserting small screws and the two battery's lasts a full day without recharge. Its a lot less cumbersome that a battery drill and the bit doesn't stick in your leg when you kneel down (if your using a holster). Very light, quick, easy to use and very tough. The rotation direction button is small and a little difficult to locate, unless your posses hands like Shreck's dad. If you wish to install 2 1/2" wood screws all day and intend this as a replacement for a battery drill think again! It will quite easily put these screws into wood/plugs but the battery wont last any length of time. I think its a little over priced at £90 and recon its only worth about £70 in the current climate. I'm stuck with it now so will persevere but think there are better value and designs on the market. Would advise you go take a look at others available before committing."
"This is a very good product. We have used a lot of power screwdrivers in our rework department over the years and all fail rapidly due to the amount of use they get. These products are very robust and so far have proved very reliable.
I was a little disappointed that there was no torque clutch setting on the driver, although I understand most professional tools rely on the ability of the user. Still it is unusual to find a non-impact driver without the torque setting.
If this product were to have a torque setting for use by production operatives then it would have scored higher."
"I found this to be a well-made driver but I didn't like and returned it.,the following reasons why,Is OK for the DIY er more like a toy , battery not changeable no indication of battery state There is better alternative out there, eg. Bosch 10.8v Drill/Driver for the same price with 2 1.5Ah Batteries"
"a fairly good tool spoiled by some design flaws for some people - it's less good for left-handers as you can catch the direction button if you hold the tool with an extended finger ( as you do). Also, the two-speed trigger can be annoying - progressively variable would be better. And the drill bit holder has to be pushed forward - many holders are pull back. Also not sure of battery's extended use. Finally the storage case is not a carry case and is pretty poorly designed. The tool is useful in small spaces but I resorted to my drill driver after 16 50mm screws driven into pilot-drilled holes on a fresh battery. I'll keep it for the odd quick job but it is not as good as I'd hoped for. Mind you, neither am I."
"Overall a great tool. Light weight. Battery lasts a good amount of time.
The switch for forward or reverse is easy to knock and is very loose so just the slightest rub against the edge of your hand whilst holding it will cause it to go into a middle position and then nothing works in either direction.
The gear box is oddly arranged. Starts fast then goes slow the further you depress the button.
With that said. I'd still rather have this tool by my side than not as it is incredibly powerful."
"I found this to be a well-made driver but I didn't like it for the following reasons and returned it.
The speed control works counter-intuitively. Second gear is engaged by half squeezing and first gear by a full squeeze. With most screwdrivers pressing harder drives faster and there's a separate switch to change gear. I prefer these conventional controls since with the GSR it's difficult to press it to the screw hard without squeezing the trigger fully and changing gear when you don't want too.
It was not all that small for a 3.6v driver and it didn't fit my hands well or feel comfortable, even though I have average size hands.
The charger is separate and bulky compared with the drill. The whole paraphernalia in the supplied box does not fit well in a tool box or even in a Bosch L-boxx.
Overall, it works fine and if you do assembly work with small screws it may well be the tool for you so long as you don't mind investing the time to get used to the controls. For me that was too much effort given the other issues.
In the end I splashed out on a 12v Festool CXS (much, much better and not much bigger) and a smaller 3.6v Bosch Ixo for tiny screws."
