Be aware that many of the items in this set are duplicates of each other. Also, there are only two nutdrivers. The screw guide is good, and it's smaller and easier to use than the one sold separately. Certainly, the quality seems excellent. But really think carefully about whether the two tips included with the screwdriver itself aren't sufficient, because this set just doesn't add that much.

I have had this set for several months now and have come to appreciate what others call "duplicates" as well as the perceived poor quality of the case. First off the duplicates in the case are the pieces you use the most, phillips bits. Because the tolerances of screws are not as tight as they should be I consistently round out either the head of the screw or the bit. The fact that this kit comes with several allows you to fit the bit tip to the screw. Second the longer bits are great for areas where a little extra length is required. I recently installed a hi-loft in my garage and the longer bits came in very handy and these bits don't normally come in a set this inexpensive. Lastly the case, the size of the case is perfect when I have a small job to do around the house and don't want to carry my 100 piece case around. The bits don't fall out of their holders like many bits in other cases. Yes they are a little snug and I have large hands so it can be difficult to get them out but I would prefer that to all of them falling out every time I open the case.

I was going to get the 21 piece DW2161...but I figure for $8 more I get a better value. More items (in case of loss or wearout) and a magnetic driver which alone is already the price difference.

this is a great set, and it practically got to me over-night (with standard shipping). the only problems i have with this set (in no particular order) are:

A) The pieces are a real pain to get in and out

B) i can't fit the case in my drill case (i have a DC750KA) but that's not a real problem

C) it's not really 37-piece because they give you more than one of the same bit

C.1) i know this adds up to 45 that's because i went by number of heads not bits

6 - SQ2 Square head
1 - SQ1 Square head
1 - SQ3 Square head
1 - Long P2 Phillips head
1 - Long SQ2 Square head
3 - Double Sided P2 head

1 - Double Sided Combo P3/SL10(flat-head)
1 - Double Sided Combo P1/SL6(flat-head)
1 - P1 Phillips head
10 - P2 Phillips head

Impressed at first and disappointed now. In the beginning (sounds familiar) there was a really good looking set of screw bits that actually worked fairly well with light screwing. But after a few months and having to install window blinds I became disappointed with the results. I made a specific point to match the screw head with the screw bit so that the job would be easier. I additionally pre-screwed the holes to make it further easier. Then came the surprise. The screw bits did not hold the screws. That is the screw heads were stronger than the screw bit. Now that is wrong. Really wrong. If anything the screw head should be the first to go but not with these bits. Instead of leaving the job incomplete I resorted to my old (1973 vintage) Craftsman ratchet screwdriver and the original bit that came with it to finish the job. Now that's wrong.

I've come to expect quality from DeWalt and these are no exception. As an active carpenter I use these daily and cannot get along at work without them. Rock solid 9/10.... (Nothings perfect!).

This is a great product. Yes some of the bits are difficult to remove from the holder, but I solved that quickly by removing all the bits with a manual screwdriver then prying all the plastic holders out of the case and tossing them in the trash. Those just make for unnecessary effort to use them. All of the screw driver bits are of good dewalt quality.

Story.

Gave my old set away to pay rent in Chicago last year along with my old 18volt cordless DeWalt drill. Just recently purchased a replacement 18volt Harbor Freight cordless drill for $49.99 (only have had it for 2-3 weeks - but not a bad drill at all). Anyway, I recently replaced this Screwdriving Set from DeWalt. When they arrived in the post, I experienced jubilation that they were back in my hands. Back with me again!!!

These things are great, they work great, totally effective. I actually used the extension shaft way more than expected. Countless times put that to use on projects (the one that says 'DEWALT' along the side) and I didn't even know what it did when I bought my original set. As well, the case that this set comes in is rugged and easily closed. It stays shut because it is built well. This is an all-around excellent piece for one's tool kit. I actually think it is indispensable.

Approved for future customer purchase.

I'll have to admit that I didn't know that these were drill bits but after the light dawned on me, I began to realize what a big advantage these will give me regardless of what kind of screw it is. Nice variety.
