These are great screws they are easy to start, and have a low tendency to break when sinking up, there is also a low occurence of head stipping. They also have great holding power, and do not tend to back out with material expansion. It completely met all my needs for this type of product.

Just to answer the previous review. The Fine Thread Drywall screws are for use on steel studs. They also have a diamond point tip, so you do not need to use a self-tapping screw or pre-drill when laying sheetrock.
Also, you should never use drywall screws when laying hardie backer or any type of cement board. Sure, it will work since it is a screw. But if your tile comes with a warranty, it will be denied of any claim if you do not use the proper screws, and if you do not use enough screws. If it's for a customer, give them a quality installation. But if it's for yourself do as you please.

This review is from:#8 x 1-1/4 in. Phillips Bugle-Head Coarse Thread Sharp Point Drywall Screws (1 lb.-Pack)
I worked for a drywall company for 9 years and saw many, many different brands of #6 1 1/4" screws. The last batch (5lbs) I bought at Home Depot were the worst I've ever used. They were extremely dull. They have a large amount of oil metal shavings on them. Also, they were definitely larger than a #6. Bad Bad BAD screws. There are few things more frustrating than trying to make it through a box of bad fasteners. To be fair, I've bought this brand before and they were fine.

These screws work great, These are my favorite screws of any type. I do not know why you would use the fine thread version of these drywall screws however... they dont grab nearly as well! But the heads will brake off if driven hard into a knot (nothing to be worried of, probably like 1 in 100) or say you try to use them to attach cement board instead of the expensive cement board screws (then more like 1 in 10 will brake).
