I originally purchased the latest Type 3 version of the Dewalt DW257 VSR deck/drywall screwdriver primarily to fasten 1/4" and 1/2" concrete backerboard underlayment to plywood subflooring for tile work. It drives 1-1/4" and 1-5/8" backerboard screws flush to the surface quickly and easily with almost no effort. The DW257 is very well balanced and light weight, has a comfortable pistol grip and trigger position that make it easy to work with all day long. I like the large variable speed reversing trigger switch and the trigger lock location because it makes it virtually impossible to unintentionally lock the trigger in the on position while using the tool. The 6.2 amp motor is smooth and powerful and because it turns at only 2500 RPM's, it is very quite. I have used the DW257 to easily drive 3-1/2" and 4" deck screws flush to the surface of 2X PT lumber and yet, it can also be adjusted to flush set screws in 1/2" drywall and greenboard with no paper tear through. This makes for a very versatile tool that can handle a wide range of fastening tasks that a 4000 RPM drywall only screwdriver can't. When considering it's modest cost, the DW257 offers better value and performance than many of it competitors more expensive models.
The depth sensitive control is easy to adjust and once set, stays put. The metal tipped adjustment collar locks securely to the clutch housing and has never accidentally popped off while using the tool. The clutch operates smoothly and works the way it should.
Overall, I would recommend the DW257 to individuals who needs a powerful, well balanced combination deck/drywall screwdriver that is easy on the wrist and comfortable enough to work with all day.

I had the chance to use one of these drywall/deck screw drivers two weeks ago to help a friend replace all of his outdoor deck with new 2x6 redwood decking. He had both this unit and another brand which he rented. I drove maybe 500 3 inch deck screws with this unit. I found it to be well balanced and sufficiently powerful to drive them quickly without pilot holes (except at the ends to avoid splitting). The rpm was slow enough to avoid overheating. I'm not a contractor but I think this driver would be valuable to anyone who might want to fasten plywood siding, decking or drywall. As a matter of fact, I've just purchased one for my own use, since I own several rental properties.

I've used a DW257 for a year and a half now, and would buy one again without hesitation. Because it has plenty of speed and control to hang rooms-ful of drywall, and torque enough at all speeds to drive 3" deck screws into seasoned lumber. This tool enables me to do the above precisely, and easily. It's going to make redoing the rest of my house, inside and out, much simpler and quicker than otherwise. Enjoyable, even. Do be sure to periodically pop off the depth-adjustment mechanism, and put a drop of machine oil on the bushings.

rather get the DW272. I don't know if it was an isolated instance, but I couldn't keep the nose assembly tight. I believe the threads were stripped, and it wouldn't stay tight.

The DW272 has not had the same problem. When I purchased it, my instinct said "plastic isn't durable and it looks like it could be weak at the nose", and well in this case it proved to be true.

I certianly wouldn't rate the DeWalt tools based on the quality of this drill/driver...they make better products, I own many...and will continue to buy them.

I went out and got this for a deck I was putting up. After owning the DeWalt DW 257 for 24 hours and using it to screw down 5/8 pressure treated deck boards to 2X12 joists the thing wrung itself completely in half. Immagine the look on the clerks face when I returned the gear/ clutch assembly in one hand and the body in the other. Needless to say I got a refund and bought something else. While I love my DeWalt framing nailer and a DeWalt/ Emglo compressor I'm now leary of buying yellow....

Verified Purchase
I purchased the Dewalt DW257 for a decking project I'm working on. Unfortunately, I never used it because I could not remove the bit that came with the driver and replace it with one for my decking screws. I ended up using my cordless drill/driver for the project. Now, a month later, I decided to tackle the issue of removing the bit that came with the Dewalt driver. To make a long story short, I tried using a pair of Visegrips with a bench vise to no avail. I ended up clamping the bit holder in the vise and using a mallet and chisel to extract the bit. In doing so, the metal retainer ring/clip broke. I'm very disappointed in the quality of this driver. Possibly I just ended up with a defective unit?

I purchased the DW257 about a month ago and layed the boots to it immediatley. I intalled a new sub-floor on the already existing 3/4 inch floor. I used 3" floor screws to go into the house floor joists. Worked beautifully, the screws zipped right in. The depth adjuster worked great.
I have alot of drywalling to do as well. I have been using it for the drywall that I am now doing (waited to write this review untill I used it on drywall). Again, the screws zip right in, the depth adjustedment makes this tool dummy proof.
I have read a couple of the reviews above. You certainly have to learn how to hold and balance the tool in your hand for clean fastening (like any other tool). Once you do that... this tool is it!!
