I completed a new mahogany deck last summer. For years a drill was all I used and never had a complaint. Screws have improved, they start easier and cause less splitting than they used to.

Where the impact driver made a different, was with the larger Simpson hex-head screws. Those take a bit more work. The lighter compact style of the driver is also better.

Plus, with the mahogany, I had to pre-drill every deck board. So a drill and driver combo was convenient.

I do like the light touch offered by the drill over the driver. One can overdrive pretty easily.
