I’ve had a bosch set, driver and drill, for about 6 years now. I use my impact driver all the time. It’s lighter, and shorter. Being short makes it easier to drive screws. Keeping the pivot point closer to the unit makes things more stable when starting screws. Also, when the screw gets deeper the hammering effect makes it drive better. You’ll notice it particularly if you’re using phillips screws. They often won’t slip when the driving gets hard. (BTW… i’ve all but abandoned phillips heads).
A couple of minor points: I like the quick, pull open and closed to replace a driver bit. Sometimes I’m using two or three different sized screws at a time. They often have different sized bits. And, if I’m drilling and screwing alternating, then I don’t have to change back and forth if only using a drill for both.
