Different experience I guess. I have both. An electric or pneumatic impact will tend to strip a Phillips head screw, whereas a impact driver will preserve the head, because it drives down as it turns. I use a pneumatic often for hex heads which is best for that application. Only problem with impact drivers is you need to back up thinner items so you don't bend/break them. But something solid like this would be perfect for an impact driver.
