What reviewers liked

Channellock 131CB 13-In-1 Multi-Bit Storage Quick-Load Ratcheting Screwdriver
We tested the MegaPro 13-in-1 alongside the Channellock 13-in-1 Multi-Bit Ratcheting Screwdriver, and they perform identically. Other than the color, they’re the same tool; MegaPro confirmed to us that it manufactures the Channellock on a private-label basis. We recommend buying whichever tool is cheaper or easier for you to get.
Saying that the fine-tooth ratcheting mechanism is smooth is somewhat of an understatement. It doesn’t click, it zips.
You will find it convenient to access the handle and store your most favorite bits inside it. There is no need of worrying about losing any bit as well.
It can easily fit in the category of the best ratcheting screwdriver because of the performance it delivers. The product is also not highly priced as well.

What reviewers didn't like

The screwdriver may be too long for working in some areas. The bits may wear out prematurely.
The only flaw I could find is the slightly rounded tip of the nut driver where 3 of the 6 hex flats are perfect and 3 are slightly rounded.
Hard to fit large standard bits
The bits might fall out of the driver.
