Cons Awkward to do tasks; pouch's design requires you to struggle to fit the components in it; Holders for bits are annoying.
Summary Tons of bits and the rachet set is a plus. Very durable, not made out of any cheap crap. But, that being said, I really expected more from a Skil product. Use to be a really good name or maybe this was their one slip up. As the other poster mentioned, the tool makes tasks really awkward, partial due to poor design and the large size of the tool itself. Especially poor for working on computers which typically require you to get into tight spaces. The pouch as I stated above barely fits some of the parts which is frustrating. Once again, design flaw. And this may be a small nuisance but the holders for the bits have no bottom, so, you have to find that sweet spot (it's a small spot, trust me) to make sure the bit stays in place and doesn't fall through.
All that being said, for $29.99 I would have rated this lower. But, at $12.99 it's hard to complain. It'll do in a pinch, but, you may have to struggle with it.
Summary The device itself is an "all-in-one" kind of device, that can be used as a pair of pliers, has a ruler, two blades, one saw and one file, amongst other little thing. It actually contains like 44 pieces and one all in one device. Using it as a screwdriver feels extremely awkward and since the bits are standard size, you should use them with a different screwdriver. It has a small magnet in it, but not strong enough. You can tighten it up a bit by screwing the screws on the device a bit as it feels a bit loose when using at first. Would give it 5/5 but as a screwdriver it fails horribly.
