Very very disappointing
There are definitely better alternatives available - particularly those with magnetic bit storage. The bit storage in the handle is apalling - it is not easy to open and it does not grip sufficiently so when you open it many of the bits just fall out.
Good range of bits and the removable bar is good otherwise it would have got one star. This will definitely not be part of my regular toolkit.
Sad because it's the only boit of DeWalt kit that I've ever been disappointed with.

There are better out there
I purchased this last week and returned it within two hours.
In order to gain access to the bits in the handle you need to prise of the end with your finger nails which I struggled to do. When I did the bits all fell out. This was okay in my office but I would certainly have lost some of the bits had I been out on site. I returned the driver for a replacement but that was the exact same. There is a design flaw in this.
I was impressed with some of the build quality and the removable bar but I managed to purchase a similar Bahco screwdriver elsewhere that had a better system for removing the bits from the handle. The only drawback with the Bahco is that you canât remove the bar.
Dewalt should adopt Bahcoâs design in removing the bits from the handle, If they did I would have stuck with it.

Very sturdy Ratchet Screwdrive
Unlikely to be the cheapest bit holding ratchet screw-driver you look at but it seems to be very well made. It looks like it is targeting a professional market where I would expect it to give long service.
I bought it allow me to drive long timber screws by hand into oak sleepers which it did comfortably. (Seemed a better idea than overloading my cordless drill.)
Internal drill bit holder is useful but probably a bit fiddly with cold fingers. Ability to use removable bar for use in drill is a real plus for me.
NOTE - Screwfix website suggests 1 year manufacturer guarantee but packaging suggest "lifetime" although it is never clear what that really means.
