This little set has become the most-used drill set in my shop. The bits are well-made and are very sharp. Also, the kit, while basic, has all of the standard bits that I normally use. I also like the storage case, which keeps the bits handy (especially if you are diligent in replacing each one after use.) The only complaint I have is that it can be a little difficult to snap the smaller bits into their holding slots. I keep expecting them to give under the pressure, but so far they have held. A great kit for a very reasonable price!

I have been using a larger set of DeWalt high-speed bits for several years and am impressed with the quality and durability. I purchased this small set of bits to replace some sizes I had broken. Overall, I am somewhat disappointed with this set because the are not high-speed bits. Compared to my other set, it feels like it takes FOREVER to get through any material. It also requires more elbow grease. On the plus side, the bits are perfectly acceptable normal drill bits and perform their intended function well. In some cases they are better than the high-speed bits, like when you are trying to drill very slowly and carefully.

If you own and like your high speed bits, do not buy these. You will be disappointed. But like I said they perform the intended purpose well.

I bought these for home use -- Excellent product, I have no complaints. They glide through wood, walls and even stucco. None have broken.

I've read all the reviews here and I haven't seen anyone commenting on drilling metals. I've had this set for years and it works fine on dry walls, wood, and PVC. Few days ago I was in a situation where I had to drill open a door lock (which is made of brass). The coating peeled-off within a few seconds of drilling and the bit snapped shortly after. While DeWalt definitely offers some of the best quality power tools out there, this set is just a basic set. I would switch to titanium or cobalt for metal drilling in future.

I have owned this set of bits for a long time and I am very pleased with their quality. The bits stay sharp for a good long while and the assortment includes all of the sizes you would use most often. This new design for the case is a vast improvement and it seems to hold up well. I keep my bits right in the case with my DeWalt cordless drill so I am never without them!

Buy these and you won't regret it - especially if you often work away from your workshop!

I am not any sort of construction worker but just someone who likes to build wood projects around the house. I had another drill bit assortment kit and all the little bits broke. So far these bits have been great with no problem. Also, the case is well built and holds the bits securely.

I love this drill bit set. I always seem to be missing the bit I need but this lovely assortment keeps me organized. Also, there is room in the nice box to keep a spare nutdriver or screwdriver bit as well. There is 2 1/8" bits in this case, which I find great so I can still lose one and be able to complete the job.

Great kit.

This is an excellent little set of drill bits. So far, I haven't come up with a single situation that called for a bit other than one of the ones in this case, so that's a pretty good sign. I would say it's probably all you need for your average home repairs--not too few, not too many

As a bonus, the carrying case is awesome--I love the sliding latch because it closes the case securely and is less prone to wear and tear than your traditional closer.

These bits are very poor quality. When drilling into solid oak the drill bit started out fine but about a 1/4 inch into the wood it stopped and just spins, producing heat. Bad drill bits!

Great price so I purchased 3 sets since I am always drilling holes in wood and steel...and if you drill lots of holes, bits do break at times. Pleased with my purchase.
