Screwfix "own brand" are OK-ish, but I'm never overly impressed with them. Tacwise (blue/yellow boxes) are much better. deWalt 16ga nails are also very good.

Based on 8 years of DW cordless 16ga nailer usage (straights and angleds)

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!

Tbh I use mainly champion nails or the odd box of genuine paslodes and they are both excactly the same in my paslode. Dewalt will be cheaper as you've no gas to buy.

I just used scewfix own brand when I built my new shed, I also used exactly the same nailer big-all, its like most Ryobi tools, good DIY capabilities but, not really a full-on trade tool.
