Depends how much you want to spend all my tools are dewalt and makita and highly recommend them but if your only going to use it a handfull of times then a silverline one would be just as good for a once on a blue moon Diy job

I have a senco 18v cordless and I wouldn't be without it, more expensive than the makita cordless which I use to own which was a bit finicky and jammed or a cheaper option is the makita 240v depending on the amount of use would save you heaps of time rather than manual screw driving The only drawback is that the collated screws are so much more expensive and I have been known before to refill the strips myself with drywall screws after use on a spare Sunday afternoon
