Why get a ratcheting screwdriver? Since you never have to loosen your grip, you're less likely to lose with the screw head or strip the screw.
The shape, size, and texture of the handle lead to plenty of torque. And the storage setup—six double-ended bits in the rotating-carousel handle—is the best we've seen.

Although it's not very powerful, the DeWalt has a clever telescoping shaft that extends to 11 inches, and a bonus slide-on magnet that holds screws straight out as if they were glued to the tip.
A nearly perfect execution of a ratcheting screwdriver, the Milwaukee delivers great power, good bit selection, and a bonus wire-stripping notch in the handle's side.
The heft of the screwdriver makes the ratcheting mechanism feel as if it were designed for a gun turret on a battleship. That said, the weight does wear out your hand.
Powerful and smooth—enough that you'll forgive the occasional cam-out. Doubles as a ¼-inch, 5/16-inch, and 3/8-inch nut driver.
