Bosch GSR 3.6 V-LI Mx2Drive 3.6V 1.3Ah Li-Ion Cordless Screwdriver
Great tool but a few niggles
Overall a great tool. Light weight. Battery lasts a good amount of time.
The switch for forward or reverse is easy to knock and is very loose so just the slightest rub against the edge of your hand whilst holding it will cause it to go into a middle position and then nothing works in either direction.
The gear box is oddly arranged. Starts fast then goes slow the further you depress the button.
With that said. I'd still rather have this tool by my side than not as it is incredibly powerful.

A very powerful well built tool. Fits in the hand will but the forward and reverse buton difficult to press. Overall a great tool but not sure about the plastic box will soon be broken and thrown away this is more about marketing than use

I found this to be a well-made driver but I didn't like it for the following reasons and returned it.
The speed control works counter-intuitively. Second gear is engaged by half squeezing and first gear by a full squeeze. With most screwdrivers pressing harder drives faster and there's a separate switch to change gear. I prefer these conventional controls since with the GSR it's difficult to press it to the screw hard without squeezing the trigger fully and changing gear when you don't want too.
It was not all that small for a 3.6v driver and it didn't fit my hands well or feel comfortable, even though I have average size hands.
The charger is separate and bulky compared with the drill. The whole paraphernalia in the supplied box does not fit well in a tool box or even in a Bosch L-boxx.
Overall, it works fine and if you do assembly work with small screws it may well be the tool for you so long as you don't mind investing the time to get used to the controls. For me that was too much effort given the other issues.
In the end I splashed out on a 12v Festool CXS (much, much better and not much bigger) and a smaller 3.6v Bosch Ixo for tiny screws.
