EDIT, May 2014: I bought my RK-365 resistor kit in 2010 from another online store. The packaging seems to have been changed since then. So my review and the pics I uploaded are of the older kit.

Perfect if you need a small number (5 each) of a comprehensive range of resistor values from 1 to 1 million ohms. They come in a little slide-out cardboard box with separate compartments for different value ranges. Downsides: the yellow color bands are difficult to see over the background color, and the little zip-lock-style bags are thin, so the resistors sometimes poke through.

Neat thing: 1/2-Watt is the smallest resistor size that you can write on if you'd like to label the resistance values with numbers. But it's difficult; you need super-steady hands and a smudge-proof permanent marker like a Sharpie, and no larger than 0.3mm, preferably less than 0.2mm.

I have to say that I am very pleased with this resistor set. with 365 pieces and all of the most common values for breadboarding I have yet to need a resistor that isn't in this set. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get started in electronics. The box comes with dividers and baggies with the appropriately labeled resistors in them. This makes it very easy to find the value you are looking for.

Everything was there and packaged in plastic bags. All I had to do was plop them into my bug drawers!

This set of resistors has been great. It comes with 73 different values, 5 of each value (range from 1 ohm to 1 Mohm). This is perfect for an electrical engineering student that is doing projects for school (why I used it) or for hobby projects.

PROS:
--Comes in organized box: If you don't already have a box for components, the box it comes in is nicely organized. There are six labeled compartments within the box, and each compartment contains three or four ziploc bags. Each bag holds four different values (5 copies each, for a total of 20 resistors in the bag) and contains a piece of paper to label the contents.
--Good range of values: 1ohm to 1Mohm will cover most people. In my four years as electrical engineering student, I never required a value outside this range. If you do by chance need something bigger or smaller, just combine.

CONS:
--Color Bands: They can be a bit hard to see, but once you spend some time working with these, it's not really a problem.
--Even Distribution of Values: Some values are more common than others, so I feel like they should have sacrificed a few less common values and made more copies of the common ones. I can't tell you how many times I used up all my 10Kohm resistors on a project and had to borrow some.

*Note to Electrical/Computer/Electronics Engineering students: If you are thinking about buying this, just take my word for it and do it. I only used it for my senior year and it was still worth it. For my first three years I went to a school checkout counter to borrow every single resistor that I used. I can't tell you how many times I walked between that counter and my desk. I only regret not buying it sooner. In fact, if you're an underclassman, you may even consider buying two since you will inevitably lose some along the way.

Found the list and Ohm range very complete and in the ~ 5% range with 1/2Wat only wasted energy in my expectations! Very Happy!

We are using this 365 piece resistor set to augment the parts that came with the "Elenco 300-in-One Elecronic Project Lab". This set has a great selection of resistors and come packaged in labeled baggies for easy location of the needed value. Each resistor is also marked using the standard "BBROYGBVGW" color code and the few I have tested with an ohm meter are easily within tolerance.

Overall I am very happy with this set of resistors.

Highly Recommended!

This is a nice little kit to get started. I like the variety of resistors, but there are only 5 of each value regardless of their general popularity in electronics projects. They could have included fewer of the less popular (maybe 2 or 3) and more of the more popular (maybe 10 or 15) values.

I just breadboarded a project and needed more than 5 10k ohm resistors. Since I'm just getting back into electronics projects I was up a creek. It's easy enough to order individual resistors in bulk from someone like Mouser, but this should get you started.

One thing I liked is that each set of resistors comes bagged with a number and there is a key on the box so you know which bag the resistor you're looking for is in. It saves time trying to read the color code of a bunch of random bags to figure out which value is which.

The resistors come in little bags... with several different value resistors in each bag. Since I needed it in a hurry I paid for two day shipping and it showed up on time, that is probably the best thing about this set. Wish I had purchased the Joe-Knows-Electronics set for $20, as there are 3 times as many resistors and each different resistor value has it's own bag. Didn't need the bigger selection of resistors, but having to sort through a bag of (5) different values referring to a chart (not included) to figure out what resistor you are looking at is a pain.

Update: I see that some of the later reviewers received each resistor value in it's own bag. That would have been much handier, but the ones sent to me were mixed 5 resistor values to the bag.
