    My cordless screwdriver has a lock, so I can manually start the screws, then power out the rest of the way. It also has a pivot, so it can be straight like a regular screw driver, or pistol style depending on the pivot setting.
    Most electric drills are quite cumbersome, the battery type usually have a huge battery on the bottom. Not good as screwdrivers.

    I got a real nice Snap-on ratcheting screw driver long ago. The Phillips bits have little barbs on the fins to prevent slippage. Does anyone know what these kind of bits are called?
    ACR I believe, can you see the ACR markings on the side hex bit?

    I dunno, I just looked up Phillips with barbs, and now I know more about Barb Phillips than I ever wanted to know.

    If I have a 50% chance of guessing the right answer, I guess wrong 80% of the time.

    I've got a nice dedicated screwdriver that takes the wrist-breaking out of removing (for example) 38 x 1 1/2" screws from the back of a bass cab that I did a few weeks ago. It also has a predictable and repeatable torque setting so is useful for tightening speakers evenly, though I also have a low-reading torque driver. On guitars and other stuff though I like more feel, especially that turn backwards on plastic enclosures or with wood screws to feel the thread drop into its engagement point and avoiding cutting another thread.

    Like anything else, it comes down to what you're used to and what works given your own experience and techniques. When I managed a team I used to see work being done that wasn't the way I'd personally do it, but the individuals were getting the same results so I'd support them in their chosen methods that clearly worked for them.

    Welcome!

    I have the same Snap-On ratcheting screwdriver (actually a couple of them, one in Pink!)
    They came with the ACR bits and the Snap-On dealer made a point of pointing them out to me.
    I bought those screwdrivers a long time ago, back when they first came out.

    Still use them, although I did have to get one of them repaired (under warranty).
