Tired of driving drywall screws by hand? There is a better way. You can use a drill or a screw gun. A drill should have variable speed for best results. The disadvantage of the drill is if you are not careful, you can drive the screw too deep into the drywall and tear the paper.
The better tool is the screw gun. This power tool has a special collar and a clutch that stops the driving motion of the screw gun when the screw reaches are certain depth. Just set the stop on the screw gun collar. Once you have the depth set correctly, you can drive all the screws to the proper depth without worry.
Screws guns are fast and easy. If you don't have one, most tool rental stores have them available.
