From the Manufacturer
Ouch! Gosh darn it! Dang it all! That smarts! Isn't that what you always say after hitting your thumb with a hammer? The Thumbsaver to the rescue! Invented by a long-time framing contractor, the Thumbsaver is a durable hand tool that houses a powerful magnet to hold virtually any nail, staple, or screw, while keeping thumbs and other appendages at a safe distance. The Thumbsaver has a rubber comfort grip secured around a durable solid aluminum shaft that houses a strong magnet on the end able to hold virtually any fastener. It has proven on the jobsite to hold up to the toughest use and abuse from the heaviest of waffle head hammers. It allows you to easily hold tiny staples, tacks, picture hanging hardware, or finishing nails, never thinking twice about your hands. Professionals, weekend do-it-yourselfers, hobbyists, redecorators and crafters alike rave about the innumerable uses of this ingenious and practical tool. Now everyone can enjoy a pain-free sense of accomplishment after completing any project large or small.

Like needle nose pliers, a nail setter can protect your fingers. Moreover, a nail setter is faster to load up than needle nose pliers (good for repetitive jobs) and, since the nail is held by magnetics instead of the teeth of a tool, offers no resistence to the movement of the nail into your project when struck. Latter can also protect both the nail (scratches, etc) and your tool (wear on the teeth, etc). Besides, I'd rather ding up this nail setter than a tool intended for another purpose. Dings on a nail setter often cause no real harm (to it's simple function), while the same on another tool could destroy it (jaw alignment on pliers, etc).
So, while a nail setter is not necesary, it is practical - in roughly the same manner as a hammer is more practical than needle nose pliers for hammering nails.
Clearly one is always free to continue using fingers, pliers, or whatever. I certainly won't criticize those choices. These nail setters (ThumbSaver TS001 Magnetic) are my choice. Others have already commented about the sturdiness, the price is decent enough for the pair (standard & mini), and they do serve a purpose well.
I think if I was a pro these would have slowed me down a little; but then, if I were a pro, I probably wouldn't need them. As it is, I think they made me faster, if anything, as I didn't have to deal with any pain.
The handle is slightly bend which makes it very well suited for holding the stem of the holder comfortably and the nail or screw exactly perpendicular to the surface it needs to go into.
Well thought out, well executed, great tool.
