I've been using the previous version for many years. It was good until water got into it. So far I'm still using it, but I thought that I'll try the newer version for a comparison. The new version seems like it's less vulnerable to getting jammed. It comes with more bits in the built in storage compartment, and the handle has a good non slip grip. The new version has a ratchet feature which the old version didn't come with.
Overall its a good screwdriver if you work occasionally at home. Its npt for heavy work . I like that you can easily change the bits and it has a slot in the back to keep the other bits while not in use. Got this on sale for 6-7$ and I will keep it for my home jobs
So great to have 12 bits at your fingertips for any diy project. I ordered one to try it and then ordered 4 more as Christmas gifts for the diy guys in my family. I am sure they will love it, too.
