Compact Design and Built-In LEDs
At 6-1/4 inches long, this screwdriver is designed to fit into small spaces where traditional drill/drivers don't. As a result, you get straight penetration and avoid damaging screw heads from angled driving attempts. The length of the DEWALT means you can apply maximum leverage, enabling you to get the most from this screwdriver's 160-unit-watt output.

Additionally, the DEWALT's three LEDs--mounted radially around the barrel--will light your target area for better visibility.

Lightweight Body with User-Friendly Features
With its 2.2 pounds distributed evenly between its ergonomic body and compact battery pack, the screwdriver is easy to lift and handle. The 1/4-inch chuck can be loaded with one hand, and takes bits up to 1 inch. The DEWALT features a built-in belt clip, multiple torque settings, variable speed, and reverse for additional ease of use.

Quick-Charging, Long-Lasting Battery Packs
This screwdriver kit comes with two 12-volt max lithium-ion battery packs, each with 1.1 Ah. The recharge time of these battery packs is between 30 minutes and 1 hour.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This Dewalt screwdriver is a perfect example of "the right tool for the right job". I have an embarrassingly extensive collection of cordless drills and drivers. The problem has always been that one works great in one situation, but not in another. The large drill motors have plenty of driving power, but are heavy, bulky and impossible to get into tight places. On the other hand, the tubular shaped cordless drivers with the breakover handle usually get to the screw but either don't have the power required or the torque required makes them very hard to hold onto. This tool takes care of the job from every angle. There is plenty of power, plenty of torque and great ergonomics that keep the driver stable in your hand. It is very light for it's size, but not in a "cheaply made" kind of way. The variable speed trigger gives great control from dead slow, to full speed with plenty of increments in between. The three LEDs provide great illumination on the fastener, without shadows and dark spots. This really is a great tool.

I bought this Dewalt DCF610 (the 1/4 screwdriver, with adjustable clutch settings, but no chuck) to do general woodworking and as a "carry around" cordless drill/driver. Although DeWalt calls it a screwdriver, I use it as a drill too. I use quick change drill bit and driver bits almost all the time, and I wanted the compact size more than I wanted a chuck.

The size, weight and ergonomics are perfect for me. It has a bright white LED light that comes on before the drill starts, which is great for working in dim areas. The clutch has a nice range of torque settings, to keep from stripping or "camming out" small screws. On higher settings, the tool has plenty of torque for larger jobs. The trigger range is smooth and predictable, and has a lockout position on the reversing slider that leaves the LED light available, but keeps the drill off. The upper speed is 1050 RPM, which is fine for me. I also like the you can set it upright on the battery housing, which is a nice touch.

Will it match or replace a 18V impact drill or hammer drill? No. If you are fastening down decking or drilling holes in concrete, this is not the tool to use. But it is the right tool for most of my work, and is the first drill I reach for in the shop or in my carry around tool box.

It comes with a basic charger, two batteries, and a decent if not fancy bag that I will find a use for. I paid $139 for it at home and farm center, but received a $50 gift card rebate that is as good as cash to me. I have learned to check replacement battery costs before buying, and the $40 batteries are a welcome benefit.

For the general woodworker and DIYer, this is a really nice tool. Thanks for reading!

Update after 3 months: this tool has served be very well.

For a very long time I used the cordless screwdriver that started the sub-compact craze, the bosch PS20, and then the hitachi DB10DL for a while. Both worked fine; I liked the grip and light on the hitachi better. Both, however, spun a bit too slow for my preference (400 rpm).

Fast forward a bit and we now have the cordless screwdrivers that are two speeds, presumably to function as a drill and driver. In my view, these are a compromise as to what a cordless screwdriver is really designed for: driving screws. They're not designed to drive screws in the high speed mode (~1300 rpm), so you switch it to low speed and you're stuck at the same speeds as the original pocket drivers (350-400rpm). Granted, you do get more power than the original pocket drivers at the same speed, but for me that speed is just too slow.

When dewalt announced their 12 volt max line, I became very interested when I found out their cordless screwdriver was a single speed tool and at 1050 rpm no less!
I bought one on sale for under a benjamin and gave it a workout.

Here's my findings:
Because of the battery design (it latches to the bottom of the tool, not in the handle like the pistol style pocket drivers), the handle is slim and extremely comfortable for long term use. The rubber overmold makes it even better. The trigger operates very smoothly throughout the entire speed range for plenty of control. I can start a screw slowly and rev it up to send the screw home, which goes pretty quickly at 1050 rpm. I've found that this tool is absolutely perfect for driving screws for pocket hole joinery.

The motor has plenty of power. It's driven screws of 1/2" to 3" with no problems and no sign of struggling, nor would I expect it to.

I happen to have all three Dewalt 12 volt Max: Impact, Screw Driver, and Drill Driver. Like another reviewer here, I too am puzzled as to why this Screwdriver is better than the Impact for most situations. Having used all three Max drivers, I find that the Impact driver does pretty much everything the Screwdriver would do, but better. Only thing the Screw driver would be better at is if you are screwing in to more delicate (electronics) or fragile material, but if you were doing that then you really don't even need this much power since much cheaper & more compact alternatives exist. The "IMPACT" feature on the Dewalt Impact Driver, only comes on automatically when there is a need for it; so even if you were doing delicate screwing, it still works fine if you can just adjust finger pressure a bit; so I'm really puzzled as to the existence of this Dewalt Screwdriver product.

I also find that I'm far less likely to strip phillips screws using the Impact Driver than this Screwdriver. One reviewer commented that this driver has impact-like feature. I don't think that is true. I think he might be referring to the torque control knob similar to a drill driver. This is nothing like the Impact Driver. You can really feel the difference when you use both. When challenged, the Max ScrewDriver will either strip the screw or just start free spinning because of the torque control setting, but the Impact Driver will really drive the screw in when you hold the trigger all the way down (imagine a vice tightly gripped around the screw and a hammer tapping the vice repeatedly--that's the impact motion).
