Lias: Wiha are REALLY nice, but painfully expensive.

Brilliant tools. I use the Wiha insulated set and can not fault them.

kiwi_64: I've been refreshing my entire tookit with Bahco gear as required...  Their multi-tip screwdriver is also really nice..

Super cheap Autos have a battery powered Black & Decker for about $15.

Works very well for the smaller jobs.

Only if you choose the wrong end on it, or use a screw designed to cam out like old philips ones.
