Get the ACR bits-they are worth the extra money.

Buy good bits and buy the by the pack. They are disposable.

I get them from www.mcfeeleys.com or www.leevalley.com For the few pennies
they cost for a good one, I'm not going to change a stripped head and the
aggravation that eventually goes with it. Whenever possible, I use square
drive screws too. The Phillips driver was designed to be power driven and
to "cam out" when driven too hard. The idea was to protect the fastener
from breaking, but at the expense of the wear on tips.
