Flat-Head Wood Screws - Strip - #8 x 1 3/4" - 1000/Box is rated
Rated 3 out of
#8 x 1 3/4" only
Purchased these along with the DS235-AC driver with the hopes that it would be easier to use than my drill with a screwdriver bit.
I was totally unfamiliar with it's use, so there was a bit of a learning curve and I blew several drives.
Long story short, I shoulda bought the beast years ago. Easy to use, powerful and fast. I am VERY satisfied.
The reason for the low score on VALUE applies ONLY to the screws mentioned, but because of LOWE's response I can make that 4-5 stars. The bucket of screws is labeled to contain 1000 ( one thousand ) screws when in fact it has only 800. a partial refund was applied.

This is the best crew gun for the money. I paid $99 for the gun and have been using it to screw down subflooring throughout my house before I install hardwood. You still have to bend over to use the gun, but you can easily screw down a 4 x 8 sheet in under a minute. These screws have a good feel and I have yet to have a jam or any problem with them They may cost you a little more but if time is money then you come out ahead.
