These screws are a very soft alloy. Even putting them into plywood with a pilot hole they still wanted to strip if any torque was needed. I tried every phillips bit I had to make a better connection and avoid stripping the head. Not so lucky a few times. Make sure you only use these for light duty applications.

I bought this screw set to have around the house for small projects and repair. The screws did not hold up to the drill/driver I used to repair a simple door jamb project. I simply needed to replace the screws in a knob strike plate and I went through several screws before I gave up on these and used others I had in a drawer. I barely touched the driver after the second and third tries, but the tops of these screws still shredded. Don't waste your money. Stainless steel screws, nuts and bolts are, instead, the way to go when adding spare items to your home toolbox. Absolute junk.

These junk screws are only for sissy work in soft wood, as they strip quick under any load in metal or harder wood.Very poor value for the money. Seems you have to buy from top cabinet shop suppliers to get good screws now, as even a stainless steel set I recently bought at Home Depot won't magnetize(low steel content)and strips easily. Cheap Chinese junk all.

These screws are poorly made with heads that easily strip and screws that are not very substantial. Convenient to have around but just wish they were better made. If you see other assortments at a higher price, buy that.

One of the few times I bought something with less than a 4 stars reviews on Amazon and it backfired on me. I ordered this set of screws to put up some things in my new condo, and I thought they were a good price for a nice assortment. Sadly these screws are cheaply made and the screw head gets destroyed easily. I tried different sized screw bits but no luck. These screw head just strips off and gets destroyed half way through drilling them into drywall. Tossed the whole thing. Worthless.

The heads on these screws are way too weak/soft!!!!

From the 30+ screws I tried at least 20 have gone bad (even when I had pre drilled the holes). The head goes bad even with moderate power by hand with a correct size screwdriver. Let alone if you take out a power wrench, it's as if they are made from some kind of hard plastic. Will not purchase these again.

Not as many options or quantity that I expected nice case. Obviously I didn't realize how few 300 pieces are when it comes to small screws.

I purchased this assortment for 'spare' around the house screws. It's already come in handy. Good quality for normal applications. Great for the price and it saved me a trip to the hardware store.

Pretty much waste of money. The thread is soft too.
Do not use power tools. Now way you can use this on hard wood or plastic.

Didn't matter what drill setting I used. They aren't sharp enough to sink and they strip out and snap. Terrible product.
