Coarse thread drywall screw (W Type)
Coarse-thread drywall screws are mostly used for wood studs. The wide threads are good at gripping the timber and pulling the drywall against the studs. One downside of the coarse-thread screws: the metal burrs that can embed in your fingers. Be sure to wear gloves when working with coarse-thread drywall screws.
Fine thread drywall screw (S Type)
With sharp points, fine-thread drywall screws are best for installing drywall to metal studs. Coarse threads have a tendency to chew through the metal, never gaining proper traction. Fine threads work well with metal because they are self-threading.
