An absolute must for router table work.
What I like:
easy to use - what used to take 2-5 minutes now takes 5-30 seconds
case - guarantees that I'll always put them away and take care of them
What I don't like:
price - they're pretty expensive, at almost $40 for the set of 7
versatility - no metric version; bars only come in sizes ranging from 1/8" to 1/2" in 1/16" increments
If you haven't used set up bars before, it'll take a couple of uses before you can break out of the usual workflow. Whereas I used to have to measure, adjust, set/tighten, and repeat; now I can just put down the set up bar, make my adjustments, set/tighten (if necessary) with the bar still in place, then put the bar back in its case. It used to take me several minutes to adjust the bit and fence when I measured with a scale or tape measure, and I ended up with somewhat imprecise results. Before, I dreaded having to change an adjustment if I knew I was going to need the current adjustment again later. But now it only takes me a few seconds, and my adjustments are always dead on and easily reproducible.
The bars are very easy to handle, with a lot of gripping areas (my fumbling hands haven't dropped one yet), and they're very easy to use. I got used to setting my router's depth pretty quickly, but it wasn't until after a few more rounds of routing that I had to smack myself upside the head for not using them to set the fence. So far, the depth gauge (the hump on the top of the bar) hasn't been very useful to me except for something to grip when pulling out or putting away a bar.
Although you might think it would be nice to have additional sizes from 9/16" up to 1", it isn't necessary, because all the bars are exactly 1/4" thick. That means you can stack them to go even beyond 1". For example, if you want to adjust your router bit's cutting depth to 1-1/4", just stack 3 bars on each side (using 6 bars so far) for 3/4", then put the 1/2" bar across the two stacks. Or if you need to set the router fence to 2" from the edge of the bit, just set the first 6 bars side-by-side (for 1-1/2"), then set the 1/2" bar on its side next to the first 6. Of course, you could also stack the bars much more creatively, but the math is really easy if you work in 1/4" increments plus whatever final increment is needed.
The case is one of the best features: it guarantees that I always safely put away each bar immediately after using it, and I can always find the one I need when I need it. If you have another Kreg product with the same size case (such as the Kreg Jig Jr), you'll want to label the two cases since they're otherwise indistinguishable when they're closed.
The only things I don't like are the price and the somewhat limited versatility.
At nearly $40 for the set, the Precision Router Table Set Up Bars are quite expensive, especially when you consider that they are engineered to deteriorate with use (the logic is that you damage the soft aluminum bars instead of your even more expensive blades and bits). For comparison, you could instead get a bunch of keyway keys, gauge blocks, or a basic set of brass set up bars (all basically the same thing) for a fraction of the cost of Kreg's bars.
If you work in metric, you need to cut less than 1/8", or you need finer graduations than 1/16", you're out of luck. I'm surprised there isn't a metric version yet, but perhaps that will come if these sell well enough. Maybe anything smaller than 1/8" would have left the little fence adjustment nub too flimsy.
Although I somewhat regret not trying keyway keys or some basic square setup bars first, I highly recommend Kreg's set up bars.
These bars are awesome for dialing in the depth of a bit on a router. I've found them invaluable while setting the depth on rabbets and dados with the router. I think this is a must-have accessory for any router.
